Barber can be a big meanie! I saw that thread too! I sent a text a text to andy this morning and said turn 5 was where it happened which is a wide left turn with like a millon lines you can get lost in! (so traffic is like everywhere in that corner)

Get well soon Dick!! It sucks being an old guy trying to heal up!

Lots of ribs and a collarbone. Good effort, Weasel. Sounds a lot like what I did to myself riding dirt a few years ago. The ribs and collarbone will heal a lot faster than all the torn rib cartilage--that's gonna take awhile to stop hurting!!! It actually feels better to stop breathing, but I found you can only hold that for about 30 secs or so....

Good luck and heal up quick, dude. And enjoy the pain meds while you can get 'em.

Request that everyone that comes to visit, leave their perfumes and colognes at home. Sneezing from a nose tickle is really hard on the healing and hurts like hell.

This was my last update.

Just spoke to his daughter Beth.
They couldn't fit the surgery on his collar bone today so it will be some time tomorrow.
They require a 2 day stay afterwords so the earliest he can return is Thursday or Friday.
Beth will have to drive back Wed.
So her sister will stay down there with him.
They are talking about flights home but not sure at this time.
Dick is happy on prescription drugs and hamming it up.
Sounds like the lung wasn't as bad as originally thought.
Just a bunch of broken bones.
My guess is he will be trying not to laugh, cough, or sneeze for a couple months!
I will get another update tomorrow after dinner.

Talked to him again today. He is in great spirits!
Most likely to the morphine drip. LOL

Having a plate put in for his collar bone tomorrow morning.
Should be home by Sat.

Update!
Weasel had collar bone surgery today.
Dr. Said it went well.
Surgery lasted 11 hrs.
He is on a ventilator and will be until tomorrow as a per-cautionairy measure due to blood in the lungs.

That's a long day (11 hrs surgery) I don't mind being stuck at work on days like these after stuff like that!

Heal up! Have a safe trip on Saturday Weasel!

Re: Weasel down hard @ Barber
 
He is still on the ventilator and under sedation in the ICU.
They are expecting to take him off of it tonight or tomorrow morning.
The girls (his daughters) will head home once he is out of the ICU and go back for him next week.
