v0lusia went down tonight 8/30/07.. :(

I just got off the phone with Shawn (v0lusia).. he is at the hospital now and looks like he will be being transfered to UMass. (he called me from the hospital bed)

car in front of him was turning right into a walmart parking lot, and a lady turning left from the walmart parking lot pulled out in v0lusia's path....

he said he locked up the brakes, and was able to keep the bike up, but I imagine he hit her hard as he woke up to hear people calling 911.

He re-broke his arm, broke some ribs and a couple of vertebrae

I made him promise to call me back.... so far this is all I know....

prayers for my buddy..... these calls are scarying the heck out of me...

Shawn, you are indispensible -- not invincible. So heal quickly and get back here. Prayers headed your way.

man he's had a tough year. hope this doesn't keep him down too long. If i was him I'd play the lottery as his luck HAS to be changing for the better soon.

Beer...... I need it every time I stop in here

Yep, if the fracture is stable, or a compression fracture they're usually just as comfortable at home as in the hospital. Believe it or not that's good news.
