Chickbabe's father inlaw has a serious accident UPDATE

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by chickibabe, Feb 14, 2007.

  1. Well today we went to see the old boy, and he seems to be in good spirits For what has happened, He has broken ribs, an arm in plaster, alot of skin off. They took him off the oxygen this morning and all pain relief. ( I think, he might be thinking that if he doesn't take them he will get home earlier. lol)
    Where the accident happened it was on a railway crossing which was over a crest , as he came over it he tried to avoid the bike that was stopped at the crossing and a car stopped on the other side, but didn't quite make it. He doesn't remember alot about it. Which is good in some ways.

    I was a little shock up seeing him like this and it does send doubts through your mind. We are hoping that he does get back out there because he was enjoying it so much. Dad will make a full recovery with time to heal, if mum can keep him sane and herself sane :LOL: .
    I'll keep you update on his progress

    Cheers Lou
