Six days in the hospital but I'm a home in my recliner today! Three days in ICU, three days in a regular room. I have read thru the BS Thread and I want you all to know that I so appreciate all or your concern and prayers. I know that is why I spent as little time as I did in the hospital. Thanks to everyone that stopped in to visit as well. It was a lift to see each and evvery one of you. It is always good to see comrades in the AR DS family.

To sum up the extent of my injuries, ruptured spleen, six briken ribs, broken clavicle and collor bone. Other than that I am in pretty good shape. My right lung collapsed a bit from the impact, hit hard on my left side, and it took a while to clear all of the fluid from my lungs but left the hospital yesterday with a 97% lung capacity. The Good Lord was definetly looking out for me.

All of this caused by some inattentiveness on my part, and a sharp downhille right hand curve. I feel like a moron for letting something like this happen just out for a Sunday ride, but I guess it is all meant for a reason. A good time to reflect and assess and carry on with hopefully a life lesson learned. All I remember was topping this blind knob and the picture of a fairly steep down hill right hand turn and me applying the brakes. I most undoubtedly put in too much rear brake and the rear end came out from under me.

I will post up some pics of the day of the scene of the accident and the bike and such in the ride report thread as soon as the Mrs. brings my camera up from the truck. I wanted to let you all know I was home so you wouldn't go to the hospital today thinking I was there.

So long for now and Happy New Year! everybody.
w00t! Happy to hear you aren't having to spend the first day of the new year in the hospital! Now get healed up.

Outstanding Tim! I am so glad they let you come home. I know EVERYTHING I ever want to know about staying in the hospital. Everyone is right, now you can really get the rest you need and get on with recuperation.

If you need any help with anything don't hesitate. My dance card ain't exactly full! Ah, retirement.

It's great to hear that you are home Tim. If six days of hospital food couldn't do you in, then nothing can.
Happy New Year everyone!

Now, We need a home addy so we can bring ya some tamales after lunch today...

Thanks for all the heart warming comments guys! You are making my day. As for the tamales OJay, thanks for the offer but I've got about a 16" incision right down the center of my belly. Stapled and stiched. Any amount of food intake and it feels like the incision is stretched to the limit so I am trying to eat lite. Any and all are welcome to come by if you like. Address is 108 Champions Blvd. Rogers, AR. I hope you all have a good tamale feast. Happy New Year!

I don't suck often but when I do suck, I like to do it while Mouth watches!



Or perhaps, "Friends with Benefits" ?
