This weekend, my BIL was riding with a large group, without a helmet, as usual and a inexperienced co-rider lost control and caused a wreck. My BIL, Kenny, has 3 broken ribs and 6 shattered vertebra. Somehow, his spinal cord doesn't seem damaged. And somehow his head is intact. He thought he was too good of a rider to have an accident...but, most of us know it's not about how well one rides...it's more about the uncontrollable and unforeseeable. Hopefully, he will have a full recovery and time to think about protecting his head, which doesn't always recover as well as other parts of the body.

Oh my, thank goodness it wasn't more serious. Yes, it just takes on quick second, doesn't it. Prayers being said.

Get well soon, with a full recovery, is a wish for your BIL, Larry. Truly great news about the spinal cord not being ruptured; they can do magical things with the vertebrae, tho the pain factor is obvious.

More prayers added, Larry. Hope he fully recovers and has learned a powerful object lesson. None of us plans a go down and it's what you don't have control of that's the biggest threat.

Well, his prognosis is very favorable. He may be going home in a coupla' days...wearing a turtle shell and gimping around, but, headed for a full recovery. Thanks for the kind words, thoughts and prayers.

His wife has already put it on him...My experience suggests being told to do something for your own good is somewhat counter productive, so, even though I'm sure I could direct his life so much better than he does, I'll fore go trying.
