Just found out Trapper dog AKA Roger Lane has been in a terrible accident and is in the Hospital for Broken femur, broken clavicle, broken ribs, and more. Please say a prayer for him and Melanie who is with him.

OMG. My worst fear came true.

I first met Roger with my husband when we attended a motorcycle riding competition. Roger was police trained in motorcycle riding,  and practiced so much. He always encouraged my husband to practice. If this can happen to a Roger, it can happen to anyone.

I had not received replies from Roger in some time, so I feared the worst. I started googling for him, and this came up. I feel like I want to throw up.

Does this make anyone else want to get out of riding? Seriously, if this can happen to him, we are all vulnerable.  :-\

Roger has been moved again. He is now in a facility in Sacramento that can better manage his needs. The goal is to get him well enough to come back to the Bay Area. I plan on going out to see him on Monday. Send me a PM, or reply with your full name and I will tell Roger you said hello.

Once I meet with the staff and get their okay, I will make his address available to those who wish to send him a card.

Hey everyone,

I visited Roger yesterday at the new facility.  If you would like to send him a card or letter, please send me a PM and i will give it to you.

He shares a room and it’s kind of small. So if you send him personal items, pillows, beanie caps, socks, CDs, label the item with his name with a Sharpie.  That way when it won’t get lost or mixed up with another patient’s clothing when it’s sent out in the laundry. He is still on a trach and a feeding tube, so treats, sweets and edibles are not recommended at this time. If you have any photos of both of you together, please feel free to send those. They are great for working his memory.

There should be a few pics of Roger from the Three Rivers GTG. I can't find mine.

I stopped by and visited him on Thursday at the care facility he's at in Sacramento.  This was my first visit but per Mark (Ironhorse) he's made a lot of improvement even over the past month or so.  He is alert and can communicate some but is hard to understand with the tracheotomy he has. I could tell he knew what I was saying and would respond to questions and even pictures I showed him which always seemed to light up his countenance.

He still has a long road of recovery ahead but lots of positive signs so keep the thoughts and prayers coming.

I visited Roger yesterday and am pleased to report he is making good strides.

I would say his improvement since the last time I saw him was exponential. He is now able to pull his left leg up. He only assists with his right arm to bring it in the last few inches. Other than that he can bend his knee and raise it up. He has pretty good strength in that leg too. I gave him a foot massage and he has good strength in the foot and ankle. He can move it in all directions. His left arm has improved too. While his grip is still not strong we played a good session of tug of war. He can pull and push with good strength. He just needs to strengthen the ability to raise and lower it.

Best of all, he’s starting on semi-solid food. He ate some applesauce without any problem. He also started sipping small amounts of water out of a cup on his own. All of this while the capped trach is still in place. The plan is to transition him to more semi-solid food and get him off the stomach tube. Once that happens he will start bulking up and getting stronger.

Roger’s thoughts can still be clouded, but he grasps the contexts of past, present and future. His short-term memory is still weak, as I had to remind him of Chuck and Marty’s visit. I told him of all the folks that are praying for him and pulling for him. This Thanksgiving Roger will spend it with his son Jake, daughter in law Rachel and grand daughter who are visiting from Texas. It is hoped he can have some soft, or mashed turkey day food!
