I just got back from seeing TJ at Tampa Gen Hosp again.
Today he was in alot better spirits then the last time I was there. We had a great conversation today but he is still not out of the woods yet.
The good news is he is out of ICU and is in a regular room and today was the first time he was able to eat real food if thats what you call hosp food. Also I was talking to the doc and he said it looks like he will be moving into a rehab room tomorrow or the next day.
The bad news is he has a C2 fracture in his neck and is in a lot of pain and could take some time to heal. It could take about two weeks or so in rehab. When he goes home he will need some help there. When he was in ICU his cell phone came up missing so they are trying to locate that. When I was leaving he told me to tell everyone thanks for all the well wishes.
I will be going back to visit him next week and give you an update.
Gary

Not cheep, small fixed income, another victim of the Obameconomy.

Yes, I realize the prices, doin' the best I can.

I hear Ya. We're in the same boat. Hard to find gas money for the Wing sometimes, isn't it.

my wife doesn't Ride anymore due to neck surgery so gas money for the Wing isn't too high on her priority list.

We'd be stayin' home if it wasn't for the fact the work project we go on provide us with a place to park the 5th wheel with sewer, water and electric.

I guess DQ has 'mini'- Blizzards now. Good thing too.

Hope Ya know it's all in jest about the dinner thing. This will be our first extended visit to Florida. I'm looking forward to meetin' Y'all.
I was able to meet Road Runner up (to you) in Ohio last month. I rode down Ride with him and his 'Retired& Riding' cronies for a day. Whadda bunch of jer----, I mean great guys. :thumbup:

I went back to visit TJ today at the hosp and when i was there i met his brother and sister/in/law. He was in typical TJ form. I'm just counting the days before he gets kicked out of there. :lol: It looks like he will be there for a while yet in rehab. I will be out of town for three weeks and will not be able to visit him so his brother is going to update me on his changes and i will update you guys when i here something. I was in touch with John about when he get back home we will put together a RTE down by him and go visit.
