We got him up on the beach. He was still in good spirits, joking even. That's just the kind of guy Larry is, already apologizing for ruining our evening. We just had to get him to focus on holding still and taking deep breaths.

It was the dream vacation up to that point. Right before sunset he (Larry) was tossed over a wave and came down where it's a little more shallow that you'd expect.

It means that his brain is connected with the nerves down to his feet.

He came back up face-down. They pulled him out immediately ... We were telling him to take deep breaths.

He's getting excellent medical attention there. But to be close to home, to be back with friends and family that want to support him and take him through this. For that he needs to be here.
