Crap! Heal up fast. I have special place in my heart for the man, he was the first one to welcome me to the BF
Cat 6 going on PRO....
I do not remember the accident but only "waking up" in the hospital, after coming back from a CT Scan. When asking how long I was asleep my mom informed me I had been awake the whole time (about 2 hours) and repeating a phrase. Apparently after the accident I ran into my parents house and said "I think I was in an accident, I need to go to the hospital." I bounced back pretty much straight away, thankfully, and got right back onto my bikes.
I do not know you 10-wheels, but I hope the best of your recovery.
That's great, and let's hope that's what awaits 10 Wheels. And in fact that's by far the biggest statistical likelihood, too, I think.
Every time that wheel turn 'round,
Bound to cover just a little more ground!
Best wishes for a quick recovery!

Yikes, get well soon, there's enough staff in hospital already!

Ditto on the recovery.
All the best for a speedy recovery Fred.
I rode with Fred a few years ago and I cant think of a better ride. I talked to Dave last night and he said that Fred is doing ok. Dave was riding with him, when this accident happened. He was to far back to really see how it happened, but someone else called 911 right away. I think we'll probably get the rest of the story from Fred, when he's back home.
Take care Fred! I am sure you can't wait to be home.
Sending thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery.
Yikes, just saw this - prayers are with you for a speedy recovery. And, I hope the bike is OK, too!

Golden rose, the color of the dream I had
Not too long ago
A misty blue and the lillac too
A never to grow old
Hoping for a speedy return to cycling 10 Wheels. And how's the bike. Some for you too Tom. Hope to have you back soon.
Here's hoping you have a quick and full recovery.
Condition update, Monday, 4:30PM, EST. According to posts on a family members Facebook site: Fred came home today, despite yesterday when he was having trouble keeping his eyes open, had an elevated bp and didn't want to go home because his head hurt. Evidently, he is still sore, dizzy at times and has blurred vision and sees double. He does NOT remember the fall or the ambulance ride afterwards. End
I hope Fred can take over on these posts soon because the last place I want to be is between he and his computer or bike!
I've been trying to keep up with the posted comments not only here but on other sites as well and it does my heart good to see the outporing of comments from wellwishers, THANKS GUYS, and yes, the GALS as well or perhaps even, 'especially'.
Get better Fred
God Speed 10-Wheels!
cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting
OMG, wishing you a fast and complete recovery.

Glad to hear of the progress!
Hope to read soon about 10Wheels getting out and doing a century ride. Best wishes!
