Hi, all!<P>I went to visit OT. He wasn't in his room when I got there. He was down getting x-rays and a cat scan (found the brain, didn't know what to do with it
) . When they brought him back he was in a bit of discomfort, but better than I would have thought. Better than I think I would have been considering. To be honest, considering what he when through, he is a great shape! Bless those helmets...and, please, never ride without one!!! TRUTH: Without a helmet, we would be speaking in the past about Jim. His head hit the curb.<P>He was really great nurses. They harass the heck out of him...which you know means that they think he's going to be fine.<P>As stated before, he has a dislocated shoulder, his humerous is broken in two places, his pelvis is broken in five, his left knee has torn ligaments and maybe broken. They are monitoring each leg for pulse and blood circulation. (All toes are black'n'blue.)<P>He showed me the hardware he now wears: They pin'd his pelvis and there are two rod holding them in place. Big rods!
She felt sorry for the 18 year old who hit Jim!!! (BTW: Jim's nurse is going to report this to the hospital board.)<P>His Opera Season is over, but he is hoping to be on his feet (an back to hawking motorcycle parts at the BMW dealership) in a matter of months. The Opera Director says he has a place next season.<P>He thanks everyone for the card and flowers! He was really touched.<P>I'll pass on all messages.<p>[ 02-10-2003: Message edited by: dkm32 ]
