home a few days now. was taking a grandson to Dairy Queen on my bagger. he was about to turn 11. nice day. minimal traffic. almost to my left turn, broadsided by an SUV. head injury. broken shoulder, left side all ribs broken, collapsed lung, broken eye socket, cheek bone, dislocated ankle, left leg multiple broken bones, shattered. ICU for about a week, no memory. five surgeries on my leg, as opposed to an amputation. grandson just bruises and slight road rash. the doctors could not tell if I would survive for several days. when they saw me beginning to recover, prediction was 6-8 months before I could rehab and go home. home in one day short of three months. not good. three halos and seven pins in my leg. those could be there until next August. no hard core prediction from specialist. thank God for a 69 year old bikers survival, more importantly a boy only minor injuries. rode for 54years. might never again.
