Gary Rosseter get well soon wishes
« on: August 24, 2008, 04:33:47 PM »
I just left the hospital. Gary is doing ok. He is in a semi private room now. He gas a scratched up face (right side). Broken shoulder spatula (bone in the back of shoulder). And a very bad bruised middle back column vertabrate. He can move everything but very painfully. Be us talking and in good spirits. He endo in a donwhill where a puddle ate his front wheeL landing face and shoulder first with bike clipped in following twisting him backwards.

Send Garry the healing vibes.  He will be at st josephs a few days. If you would like to see him or help out furher get n contact win Janice or pm me.

Thanks for the update Marcel. It sounds like he is hurting. So the only break is his Scapula?

The following was sent over the Swampclub E-group---->

Today at Croom, our President, Garry Rosseter, crashed and was taken by bayflight to St Joe's in Tampa.  Garry has a fractured scalpula (sp?) and a fractured vertebrae T8 and a pretty messed up face (he's gonna kill me for saying that) But all in all, he appears to be ok but will be in the hospital for a couple of days.  He will have months of rehab.  His sister, Susan is with him and I will be in contact with her and send updates out as frequently as possible.  Thank you to all who have called to check on him - I know he really appreciates it.
 
We are not exactly sure what he'll need at this point, i.e. meals, etc. but we know that money always helps with those medical bills.  Any amount will be greatly appreciated.  If you would like to help Garry, please email me back.
