    Thank you to all the prayers and wished.

    He made it through the night and is looking much better on the outcome. He has no broken arm or legs, still has a collapse lung, they had to removed spleen, they are going to let the hip and ribs try to mend on their own. So far seems no ill effect from the 2 heart attacks, brain scans look good. When they mend him off the sedation and wake him, he is responding to their commands so very good sign, then they put him back under to keep the stress down.

    Much much better than yesterday but he is still in critical condition, but we are very much more optimistic on outcome.

    He had got T-Boned and ran over when a vehicle ran a stop sign. He was on his new Triumph Bonneville for the first time this year and not on his HD. He did have full equipment on and hospital staff his helmet for sure saved his life.

    Hoping he will make a full recovery and if he does and decides to get back on the horse, that me and him can take the road trip we were discussing earlier this month. He was also talking about doing Rolling Thunder this year before this happen for he had did one before wiuth me and many of the members on here. Do not see that occurring this year, but God willing he may do so next. We will see.

    Once again thank you for all the prayers and good thoughts.

    Everyone be safe out there

    Thanks for all the thought and prayers. My brother is still in ICU and still on the ventilator. He had not been very successful in getting wean off of the ventilator mainly due to his broken ribs. So yesterday they went in and did surgey to put some plates on the upper ribs to provided support and give him a better chance to get off the ventilator. He made it through the surgery well and they are going to try again to get him off the ventilator today or tomorrow depending on how things are looking. Hopefully when they do, he will start picking up the breathing and move forward.

    Still on the sedation for the most part and they keep him under except to bring him out every so often to make sure he is still able to follow commands which so far he has. So a little step back, but overall much better than when they brought him in and we are very optimistic.

    Will keep you all up to date as things move along and once again thanks for the thoughts and prayers.

    Tim (aka Fibersnake).
