Even if he survives a horrific head injury suffered in a bus crash, Grammy-winning Tejano singer Emilio Navaira faces a long recovery and an uncertain future, his doctors say. Navaira, 45, known to his fans simply as Emilio, was behind the wheel of his tour bus before dawn Sunday after a weekend show when it slammed into an interchange barrier on a Houston-area freeway, propelling him through the windshield. Dr. Alex Valadka, director of neurotrauma services at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center and vice chair of neurosciences at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, on Tuesday described Navaira as stable but added, "We're still afraid something adverse could happen."
