Rotor - Sorry to hear about the accident but happy to hear you are already making progress. I forget who it was but someone on here posted about supplements to help in the healing process for this type of injury. It was something like calcium for the bones and sexy nurses for the muscle. Or something like that...

Get well soon, brother.

Bisleybob,
Doug would love to hear from you. I know I would if I was in his place.
The tel # for this Fresno Community Hospital in California is 559-459-3963. His new room is 691
This rings to the nurse station which is right next to his room. They will connect the call to the phone at his bed.
Thanks to those who call and visit.

Dan

Just spoke with Rotor and he is sounding positive and looking forward to seeing his Bros and thanks the many well wishers and the guys who risked themselves. When and where are heros made,this time it was here in our play ground. Thanks I hope my Bros are as strong. Rotor's new room is 678.

Doug, glad things are looking positive.

you never fail to amaze me when I, get to watch you fly.

I, Think your new fly-fishing thing needs a little more R&D.

Get well soon.

Jimmy

Fawkes you crack me up. I made sure I told Doug that you sent him a warm hug and showed him some posts. I made sure I showed him your butterfly picture. He got a kick out of it. He very much appreciated all the warm wishes.

Overall he was pretty tired. He has not been able to get much sleep. They did move him a new room which was much more quieter. We called him the next day and he said he was able to sleep much better.

Keep sending the positive vibes. He needs all he can get.

Fawkes,

So kind of you to think of creative ways to offer encouragement to Rotor! I'll bet the gesture just means the world to him. It would to me.
