I haven't heard anything about Gomer's condition, or Lori's attempt to drive the big rig home. I hope all's well. If anyone has any info on injuries, epilogues, etc, we'd love to hear about it.

JP as of now I went to the ER Sunday night and they found a small fracture just below the knee. The swelling is way to much for any determination as far a ligament damage. I am going in to the Ortho Surgeon Thurs Afternoon to see if he can tell anything

I tore both MCLs. The right one completely, but I think the left one is still somewhat attached. The initial diagnosis for the back is a muscle spasm induced by a severe impact. I'm not too sure about that though, because it still hurts way more than I would expect for something like that.

I went to the ER yesterday and go to the orthopedic surgeon this afternoon.

I still don't understand how I landed on my head and tore both knees and hurt my back.

We drove straight through with the exception of a 3 hour stop south of Tupelo because of severe rain and another hour when they closed I-20 in Birmingham for an accident. Lori drove an hour and a half in eastern Arkansas and another hour when we hit SC, I did the rest. Ironically, the drivers seat of the RV is more comfortable than any of the chairs in the house!

I had to figure out some way of getting out of the spanking you and Thump were going to give me in the "A" race...just wish I could have come up with something less severe.

Gomer,

What a bummer man! Hope you heal up fine. It was great riding with you while you were upright.

Thanks for letting my tour the track on the CRF450, what an awesome bike!

Looks like i might of lucked out some with my accident. I got a cast put on my foot today and they said if the bones would of popped out of place i would have to have screws and plates put in. Since they were relatively close to normal position i only got a cast. Fine by me since i didnt want to have another surgery and longer recoverly time. They'll re x-ray them next wednesday to make sure nothing shifted. If the bones shift then i have to have surgery. Atleast i get to miss work for 6 to 8 weeks! :yeehaw: But it does suck not being able to walk for that long. :(

Almost Yamaha Blue! :)

You are correct sir, although I think you will even miss work! I did anyway. Not being able to walk is the worst thing that has ever happened to me. Hang in there though and be tough! Hope you heal up fast and require no surgery.

I have a feeling that we would have been the ones getting spanked. Honestly I just wish I'd have stayed on both wheels for the race.

Heal up Gomer! and start preparing for next year.
