UPDATE #2:

Saw the Orthopedic hand specialist, yesterday. Took the disc of my X-RAYS with me, of course. An assistant comes in and tells me that my X-RAYS show 6 broken ribs; not 2 as the urgent care folks told me and that I have a pneumothorax (punctured lung). While I'm waiting for the Doctor, the urgent care facility calls to tell me almost the same thing. Very strange timing. Had to get a complete check up by an internist to get cleared for surgery but it's set for Tuesday morning. Lung seems to be healing. Still nothing to do for the ribs but the Doctors want to know how I'm walking around like this. Internist says they would never perform surgery until they were confident my lung was OK so I really have not lost any time.  Oh well....    :1112:

Doctor will move thumb back into proper position and insert a screw to keep it in place. Soon I'll be back to :guitarist:

Glad to hear Greg, rest up and heal quickly. Those docs will have you put back together quicker than Bartels will your bike.

Greg,

So glad you are only slightly battered and bruised So sorry to hear of the extent of you injuries (now that I read through the 4 pages with your updates), 6 broken rims, punctured lung and a broken thumb... (most importantly the thumb!)

The Acura looks pretty bad off but dollar wise nowhere near your bike.

Just glad you are OK and able to tell the story.

Rob

Man, saw this thread pop back up remembering that it had wound down last year and first fear was there'd been some kind of complication.  Relieved  :drink: .

Holy CHIT man!  WOW!  So sorry to hear of this whole situation and circumstances.  DEFINITELY get a lawyer!  Glad you are "ok" (wounds heal, I hear the saying goes...) and stuff can get replaced.

Gonna make for a hell of a story to tell!  Get well soon!
