Really appreciated the visit from Sourkraut and his better half at the hospital today. We all love telling riding stories and this gets added to some pretty good ones that we share! You gotta love a guy that shows up to see how you are doing after running into him and punting him into a ditch. Trying to ride up a maple with the whiskey throttle was all on him though!!! He even gave me a recliner to make recovery a little easier. You (and Lisa too) da man! We had the chance to go through all the x-rays with the trauma team - that is some messed up shit! The tally was 5 broken ribs with three with multiple breaks, broken scapula in three pieces, pneumothorax and hemothorax, partially collapsed lung and only a tiny abrasion from the suit liner on my forearm from my inside of the Darien jacket (Thank You again Aerostich!!). That’s on its way to Minnesota for some TLC. The Happy Birthday video was awesome! - thanks to all you guys for doing that!! I really appreciated that and it’s just a guess, but it looked like most had already had a few pints at that point! Strong work! I would especially like to thank the folks in our riding group who jumped into action to direct traffic, take care of my bike, talk me through the wait for the ambulance, and even standing in front of me to keep the sun out of my eyes while I was sitting in the road. What a great example for my son Sean to see at only his second Cromag rally after having to leave early last year after a mechanical. Next year we ride home on Sunday - I promise!! One thing about the hospital is that you have plenty of time to order parts to get the steed back to 100%. That’s already underway. Totally looking forward to next year and see everybody again! Ride safe everyone.
