Ok people, we have a member here that's trying to recoop from a serious head trama accident and is still in a coma and I know Cobrakid and his family would appreciate all the cards and letters that he can received from those members that knew him from the Texas Spodefest.

Chris Davis
PICU Room 11
Children's Mercy Hospital
2401 Gillham Road
Kansas City, Missouri 64108

Chris's brain swelling has gone down, but he has 20 contusions on the brain and the bleeding has increased. The next window that he has to pass is 72 hours before selective surgery is required.

Please keep your prayers up.

Thanks,

Rick

I do not know Cobrakid, but it is depressing when someone gets hurt this bad in our sport. I will send a card out to him this week. He has our thoughts and prayers. Lets hope for a speedy recovery.

Thanks Thump.

I know Chris considered you a very good friend and rider also. He would always tell me how impressed he was with you and your riding abilities.

I also know he was concerned when you got hurt and wished you the best for a speedy recovery.

The doctors have informed his parents that Chris will never be able to ride again as another head blow would be deadly. This is going to be the hardest thing for Chris to accept and I don't know at what point of time that they will be telling this to Chris as their main concern is his health.

Did not see Rick's other thread on this. Sorry, it's been a busy day.:o

Got this Email from Rick this morning:

Update on Cobrakid
I have been going to the hospital each day after work and finally beginning to see some improvements. Yesterday Chris woke up for a few minutes while his mom was talking to him and Chris tried to mummer that he loved his mom and the doctor and nurses have said that while Chris is coming and going out of his coma, when he is alert, he is able to response to the doctor's questions with a hand squeeze.

He is breathing on his own, but the respirator is on standby. No cat scans were required yesterday and its looks like no surgery is going to be needed since he passed his 72 hour test. Chris is still not out of the woods yet. He has developed pneumonia which was expected because of his long duration on his back.

Chris's room is starting to look like Travis Pastrani's headquarters. I have printed up pictures of Chris racing and riding with me and we have them plastered on the walls of his room. They are playing several Travis P. videos on the TV, several local dealerships have donated T-shirts with workers and mechanics signatures and other merchandise. I think this is really great that the local motorcycle shops that have sponsored motocross racers have donated something.

We are trying to get ahold of Travis P. along with several of our local track owners who have contacts with Travis to see if Travis would make a phone call or just send a card or letter telling Chris to get better soon and hoping for a full recovrey. Chris is a big fan of Travis's and that is why he wanted a RM250 to race with. Also while he would play Motocross Madness 2 online, his bike number would always be 199. Also I took Chris to the St. Louis Supercross in hoping he could get Travis's signature and to watch Travis race.

Thanks again for all your wishes, prayers, and concerns. I know Chris and his parents really appreciate all the input that you have made and somehow that appreciation will be expressed or returned

I would like to say a Special THANK YOU to Kirby and Connie from Summit Cycle. A beautiful basket of food was received from them.

All I can say now is God Bless everyone here on The KC Rider's Group

Rick

This is very sad

It is unfortunate when things like this happen. I will certainly have a card out by the end of this week.

From Racerhead on RacerX:
Our thoughts and prayers also go out to 15-year-old Chris Davis and his family. Chris went down hard last week and is not in very good shape. We will keep you posted and hopefully have better news soon.
All my best to Cobrakid and his family.
