Finally Back Online...

well I've been home for a week now and thanks to Mr Focker I now have a laptop and wireless router. Thanks Bro!!!!!!!!


So I'm going to be down and out for a while. I need skin grafts on my left leg to cover the open wounds. It looks like about two weeks before I can have that surgery. The recovery time after that could be a few more weeks and I'm sure some therapy to learn to walk properly again.

Be careful out there and be wary of who you ride with...

Nice to hear from you and to know you're back home! I'm sorry that you had the accident and are having to go through so much to recover from it, but I know you'll come out of it all just fine. Hang in there, buddy, and if there's anything I can do to help just let me know.

Hey Shredder, it all passes, man. As soon as you're on crutches I'll send you a steel plate and some duct tape. Attach it to the cast and you can ride!

Ted:

I'm glad your injuries weren't more severe, but from the sound of it, they were plenty bad enough. Take your time in coming back so that you have plenty of time to heal. You've got the whole Winter in front of you to do that so that you're ready to howl in the Spring.

Ride with Pride,

Hurry up and get well soon. We've all been worried about you and hoping you recover fully and quickly
