He is in room a512 right now. I would think that he will be there through tomorrow.

Chisel and I were out there this morning. A doctor came in for the first time since yesterday. They are going to check his neck out, because he hsa some weird numbness and burning going to his right hand.

Be thankful that the pillow is sitting where it is......seriously. Notice the socks!

What room? Does he welcome visitors? Etc...
they probably moved him to a reg room but I am not sure. 

Gregg,
After you go today, let us know.  Ask him about his car.  I am sure he won't be able to drive for a while but in case someone else in his family needs it.  It's safe on my driveway but i can take it anywhere he may need it. I am proud to say that I only killed the engine once at a red light yesterday   ;).  I had not driven a stick shift in over 10 years but glad I could help in some way.  It could have been anyone of us.

We did talk about the car being at your house (thank god you didn't have to drive the old car). I would be happy to help you get the car to him this week.

I just spoke with the Spill FACTORe and he sounded tired, sore, but relatively upbeat and thankful it wasn't worse. Brandon Regional's main number is 813-681-5551; just ask for A512
This is gonna hurt

Crap, Dude! Get well soon.
SWAMP should name that drop in your honor.
We could call that loop "Crash FACTORe"

+1 on that!!!

"Crash FACTORe" sounds pretty good...

At least it wasn't on a green trail this time  ;)

Hope you heal up and get back to falling down soon.

I'll add a vote for "Crash FACTORe". Sound like a great name for that loop.

Even though Jonathon gave me permisison to post his picture when his laying down in agony trying to catch his breath, I jsut can't do it. It must've taken him about 10 minutes for him to get a good breath in.  For those that don't ride the "FACTORe-spot" (i like this one better), here it is:

FACTORe,

Been outta town since Thursday night, so I just heard about your unfortunate incident.  Hope you're feeling better, and get well soon.
