The musician is in a hospital several states away, still on a ventilator and still at varying degrees of unresponsiveness depending on if you ask his family or his nurses.
I had pulled some strings and promised some favors at work to finagle 5 days off to go visit him on tour this week and I was thinking of going back to see him on those days instead. I was informed by his brother today that his ex-wife is there and it “might be awkward” if we were there at the same time.
So the woman who left him trumps the woman who loves him.
I know I didn’t give a thought to what they would think when I hopped a plane the day after the accident, but flying to a place where you know ahead of time you’re not welcome would just suck.
