Too Many Projects Good to see you post, Tim !!
Also, good to hear they are using a natural healing method, over surgery, for now. Hopefully, you will heal well on your own.

This will give you time to plan out a new avatar pic...something with a Chevy II in it...

I hear your F-I-L has some room in his restoration shop for a new project...

When she got to him there some other cyclists who had come by and stayed with him until she arrived.

I have not talked to Tim so there may be parts of this that are not completely accurate but for the most part, I think it is close.

He has three fractured vertebrae, two broken ribs, and his shoulder blade is broken. They are particularly concerned about his L1 vertebrae as I understand it.

Again, thanks for all your concern and prayers.

Just wanted to thank everyone for your prayers, each and every one is very deeply appreciated! Long road ahead with several unknowns, but we will take it one day at a time and stay focused on the rehab process. Didnít mean to create a diversion for this thread, will try to be more careful going forward

Will do Mitch. That is kind of you guys.

Tim is going to go home tomorrow. He will be in a brace for X number of weeks even if they don't have to do surgery in two weeks. Also, it is his right shoulder blade that is broken and he is right handed, so he is going to be dealing with a lot of inconvenience for a while while his arm is also immobilized.

I did finish getting the '53 back together today and she now has 3/4Ē free travel at the top of the clutch and it releases about one inch from the bottom. The clutch pedal has a good feel without being to stiff also.

It may have taken me three weeks to do a 7-8 hour job but the end result seems to be very good.

Too Many Projects Dang, John, that was tough to read. Back injuries can take a long time to recover. The fact that they are NOT doing surgery is welcome news, at least to me. WAY too many negative outcomes from that procedure.
Hoping he is as comfortable as possible and heals well enough to stay out of the operating room.
Tell him I said "hi" and helping him recover from here...

idrivejunk That means it will be awhile before any conclusions can be made. Whew. Peace to you and to his, and comfort to him. Was anyone else hurt? Thanks for telling us what goes on. Can't always be shiny car stuff, I know that.

John long It turns out Tim did not go to surgery. As I understand it the Dr's looked at more X-rays and decided to hold off on surgery and are attempting to immobilize him with a cast and see if he will heal without the surgery.

I really feel like God has answered prayer and we are optimistic that more good news will be forthcoming.

Thank you all for your concern and prayers. I should have posted this earlier but have had a houseful of Barb's family here today.

John long He is in surgery now. Dr says it will be about 5 hours. Will post as I find out anything.

123pugsy Jeez...terrible news. With the advancements in medicine these days, I'm sure they'll fix him up nicely. Keeping you all in my thoughts.

idrivejunk John I am real sorry to hear that and thankful there is movement. Please keep us posted.
