Surgery for Timmy…


Timmy underwent successful surgery to repair his broken collarbone this morning. The good news is that if the docs feel he is stable enough for the surgery then he is on his way to getting better. According to his Dad, Duane, they have done a great job with his road rash and parts are already beginning to heal. Word is that his scapula will have to heal on its own. As far as the head bonk, it will be quite a while till he is fully recovered but things are looking better!

Also, contrary to Velonews reports Timmy definitely isn’t leaving the hospital today. He was able to get out of bed briefly with some help. But, he will most likely be spending the weekend in the hospital, I’ll be sure and let you know if that changes at all.

Thanks for your continued support and well wishes, I know Timmy really appreciates them!
