Won't help a bit, but about this time last year a young Englishman was in a bike crash...shattered his leg in many places adn his pelvis in three, but he fared much better than Bobby... he responded to treatment and was "out of the woods" within a few days, but facing a very long and painful recovery from the leg damages. The pelvis was reduced easily and casted, but the leg required a few restorative surgeries and he went thru two of them in October and February. He could finally walk with crutches and decided to celebrate his progress with a trip to Spain with family and his fiancee to sit on the sunny coast.

On April 14th last he went out to the terrace, sat down in a lounger with a cool drink, closed his eyes and never awoke. He too was just 40 years old. The suspect a bit of marrow or something from the accident simply migrated to the brain and killed him.

I didn't know him at all well, only from having been asked to send him a bit of string and some instructions to help him while the hours away, but we developed a friendship in those short months.

His passing affected me more than I would have thought possible.

I sympathize with your loss.
