Rally Ace, Charlie Lubega’s son, Michael is fighting for his life following a nasty accident that nearly took away his life.
According to the Club Guvnor owner, his son had a very bad accident at 3am on Friday morning.
It cracked his skull, eye socket and broke 3 cervical bones. One of the bones shattered and compressed the spinal cord leaving the the body in paralysis.
“He underwent surgery at IHK at 1:30pm on Friday for close to 7 hours. First the neuro surgeon drilled the skull to drain a clot and all the hemorrhaged blood from the brain cavity.
“Then the orthopedic surgeons repaired C4,5& 6 with some bone grafted from the hip and used titanium plates and screws to secure and position. Thereafter a plastic surgeon reconstructed his shattered ear,” Lubega notes.
Michael spent the whole of Friday night in ICU in an induced coma at.
On Saturday they started gradually reducing the sedation and he responded positively. CT Scans were done on the brain and cervical vertebrae and confirmed that both ops were successful – without any issues.
“Doctors are positive about the progress so far. Please keep him in your prayers.”
