My Buddy was hit by a car the day after Thanksgiving. He sustained broken hip, leg, knee issues and broken hand and finger. He spent 5-6 weeks in the hospital and rehab facility before getting to go back home.
His finger grew back crooked and he still cannot walk without assistance. There are nerve issues in his leg and he cannot move his foot. His knee doesn't have much flexibility. The surgeon put a cable in his knee to provide some stability back in December ........ it broke during a PT session last month-a broken end of the cable occassionally sticks up through his skin causing extreme pain..........Ouch!!
I took him back to the hospital yesterday for more surgeries on his knee and finger. With all he has endured he still dreams of getting back on the bike. He asked me to write the surgeon a note on his leg/knee.
At least his sense of humor has remained steadfast.........along with his passion for riding!!
I'm just hoping he can get back to walking again.........
