I woke this morning to an email from a dear friend of more than 25 years. I thought I'd post it here for all to read:"
I sent you an e-mail but I was on heavy duty narcotics and I think I
f+cked it up. I broke 8 ribs in the front right and 4 in the back right side of
my tender extremely mortal body. Ribs hurt like a motherf+cker I bet you can
guess how I did it................yep as$ over appetite super wipe out well
actually I just fell over at about 22 miles an hour I don't know why I wrecked or
what happened but the first thing to hit was my right shoulder and head and as
I was wrecking I could feel ribs breaking my helmet is wrecked no brain
damage. Spent 3 nights in the hospital with a collapsed lung (partially collapsed)
they had me on a morphine drip like Tim O every 10 mins I could give myself a
little extra blast, like letting a lard ass guard chocolate. I made myself
sick on the stuff then they switched to dalautin then Demerol (all shot straight
into my veins every 3 to 4 hours) Bike is sorta messed up but can fix no
problem I gotta run to two doctors appointments can't wait to ride again, Chris
I called him to get the full story. Said he didn't know how he got down off the mountain but was very afraid of mountain lions.
