Teach hurt in motorcycle wreck this AM

Miss MaryMiss Mary Senior MemberPosts: 743 Senior Member
Just got a call, Jerry's back tire blew out while on his way to an assignment in Chattanooga this early AM. He thinks he has a broken left ankle, he is on his way to the hospital via ambulance as I type this. He says no serious injuries, he is coherent, lots of road rash, and he believes his left ankle may be broken.

Will let you know as I find out more, got to go, please keep him in your prayers.

    Mrs Mary will you please tell Teach to quit hurting himself, he ain't no spring chicken anymore and it takes longer to heal up as you get older.

    I hope he is OK and back to the things he loves doing soon! :angel2::angel2:

    Tell him to park the bike and I'll gladly buy him an Evel Knievel video to watch when he is feeling his oats again. :tooth:

    I so sorry to hear this. Miss Mary, would you like me to come up and get you and take you to Chattanooga? Or go get Jerry when he is ready? Anything you need, just let me know.

    Hope it's just a bad sprain. You've got to keep him away from moving objects, that have wheels. Keeping you, both, in our prayers. :angel2:

    Sorry to hear this. Hope Jerry's ankle isn't broken. And I'm close to Chattanooga (45 miles) so if y'all need ANYTHING at all let me know. I can be there fast. If you need the motorcycle hauled back to your house, let me know. I have a trailer that can handle that task, and be glad to take it back to the farm for you.

    Tell Teach to be thankful he's not a horse!

    And give him our best, and wish him a good recovery.

    I finally had to quit motorcycles, too many broken bones -- from what I can remember, ankle, tibia, ribs several times, clavicle, wrist, etc. -- not all at the same time, of course. But handwriting was on the wall and I eventually sold the Kawi Ninja 750 to some Korean kid who likely wrapped himself around a tree within weeks after.

    Wish Teach a full and quick recovery! (And don't let him get too comfy trying to boss you around while he's temporarily laid up) ha ha

    I'm always nervous when I hear "Motorcycle Wreck" so I'm glad it wasn't worse.

    Speedy recovery Teach!
    That's all I got.

    Jerry, Jerry, Jerry. Let us see... you have had your butt kicked by a tractor, Ford Explorer, that one contraption, and now a motorcycle. The machines are out to get you!

    Take care and get well soon.
