This is not good, Dave will need your prayers, thoughts and karma!
I got done working tonight and called home to talk to Linda, she said there was someone at the house that I knew, and he said that Dave went down last night. Dave's next door neighbor Eric came over to tell us about what had happened.
Last night at about 11:00pm Dave was on his bike going down the highway with a couple friends in cars behind him. As he went to take a ramp to go to a different highway, he failed to make the right hand corner and went over the bank of the ramp.
Dave is in ICU with a broken neck, punctured kidney, several broken ribs, broken leg and a very swollen head, Dave was not wearing a helmet. Talking to Eric he said that about the only thing functioning on Dave right now is his left hand, they feel he can hear people talking but is not able to respond.
Dave, I really don't know what to say, when I spoke to Eric my heart hit the floor. Know for sure that Linda and I will be thinking of you and your family and praying for you often. We wish you the best and most complete recovery. We'll stop by in a day or two to see you and see if there's anything we can do to help. God speed my friend.
Wade & Linda
I just spoke to Dave mother. Things are not looking any better. He had no movement on his right side at all, and the only thing on the left that moves is his hand. He went in for an MRI this morning but the results arent back yet. They do feel that if they speak loud enough he can hear them, but not even his eyes move, he's just "staring into space" as his mother told me.
There's really not much else to report at this time, I'll keep in contact with his wife Diane and keep you updated as I hear something new. I do have his address if you'd like to send a card. I'm gonna give his home addy as that way we know the cards will get there.
