PostSubject: Prayers and Happy Thoughts   Mon Jul 18, 2011 4:17 pm

I would appreciate it if y'all keep my B-N-L in your prayers and happy thoughts. He is a MotoX racer-Senior Class and was ranked pretty high in the nation. He was just a few points off from winning the Nationals this year and went to Michigan this weekend for a race that he thought he had a good chance of winning and improving his point standings.

We got a call yesterday that he had hit a tree and broken his arm. Reports were coming in from the race.

We later found out that he demolished his shoulder and broke his arm clean in two........So far they have transferred him to three different hospitals in Michigan. No one has been willing to operate-the damage is that bad. He is in route to Grand Rapids were a surgeon is waiting. They are trying to save his shoulder.

We found out also that the wreck happened yesterday morning, but they did not find him until 2:00 yesterday afternoon. We are waiting now on the report of his cat scans..............MNL and FNL are preparing to fly out at 4:00 in the A. M. so keep them in your thoughts as they travel........

Many Thanks!

Thanks Guys

UPDATE:

BNL is out of surgery. Everything went a-ok. Turns out that his arm was not broken, just that the shoulder was so torn up it appeared that his arm was broken. They have "pinned" him back together and he is in recovery as I type.

They believe he will be well enough to release tomorrow. FNL and MNL are touching down in Grand Rapids shortly. They will drive him and his wifey and the moto cross "rig" back to Bama.

They believe that Bone & Joint here will be able to handle everything from this point on, but we are trying to get a referral to Dr. Andrews in B'Ham just to be safe!

Thanks for the prayers and happy thoughts, but please continue on as they travel from the land of the godforsaken (the North) back home to the promise land. Razz

LOL.....yeah.....his motocross "rig" includes a Ford Van.....they are going to put an air mattress in the back, strap his butt down, load him up with drugs and hit the road. Doc's think he needs to be at home without the worry of being in that "Godforsaken" land.......

Although FNL just called and said "we are not coming back. We will never find our way out of here" .........I think he's lost

UPDATE:

Okay, so they decided at 11:00 last night to give BNL a MRI. Turns out his arm is broken and he has torn ligaments in his leg. FNL says he has a cast on his shoulder, a sling on his arm and his leg is encased in a boot. FNL said he looks a little like the Michelin Man at this point........but with the assistance of morphine, BNL has no cares cheers

They didn't know the arm was broken after during surgery? Sheesh.

Poor guy. It's going to take a looong time for all that to heal.

Keep him stocked in beer and chips. Twisted Evil

Sorry to learn or your BIL's accident UBU. Praying for fast and complete healing. Please remind him when he gets antsy, and he will, that he has one chance to heal properly and it is very important that he does. As he ages and arthritis sets in on those injured bones he might save himeself a lot pain by being patient, lol, now and not rush the healing process.
Thank goodness its almost time for SEC football. He can read all the reports and projections in the mags filling the shelves in bookstores and supermarkets before the first games and arm chair quarterback. Please save & share all your best jokes for when laughing doesn't hurt him so badly.Flag
