So my Dad, Mom, and Aunt Norma road in the Century ride on Saturday May 15th from the Fairgrounds to Antelope Island. Mom and Norma finished strong, Dad finished on the pavement. The road was a little squirly and somehow he lost control and crashed. When the dust settled he sent Mom on to finish the race and I went to meet him at Instacare.
After meeting with the annoying Nurse Practitioner, it was determined he broke his clavical in two places. They put him in a brace and sent him on his way. Fast forward to yesterday and he met with an Orthopedic surgeon who said that a brace wouldn't do, he needed surgery. The planets aligned and they fast tracked him for surgery today.
After a 7 inch place was put in and 3 more fractures found, he is on the road to recovery. Hopefully the recovery goes smooth and he will be back working, biking and golfing soon. So here's to you Dad, we are thinking of you and hope you know that we love you.
