Cliffordu had a fall off his bike.

Serious injury to his right elbow (broken).

Expecting surgery on Tuesday to set and pin it.

Everything else is fine.

The good news is that the bike is untouched.

He will show up here tomorrow so send him so for god sake send him some love so he will have to answer each hug and well wisher with a hunt and peck left hand reply and thereby keep his mind of the pain.

1. I demand he immediately submit

a 1000 page dissertation not only detailing the accident, but how he plans to prevent it in the future.



Seriously, I hope he's ok.

2. Cliffordu, I feel for you since it was almost three years ago that I broke the radius bone at the

neck just below the elbow joint. I went out on disability for about ten weeks when it occurred since I also injured my shoulder and couldn't maneuver a computer mouse. I hope that you get well soon and that you like your physical therapist.

However, I can't wondering if this may have been you before the injury occurred?



Here is a DU hug for you!

25. My email account is under attack.

I keep getting notifications that there was unusual activity on my email account.
I've changed my password twice this week.

I called you yesterday afternoon.
Our first phone call and you thought it was an email.
I'm slipping.

7. No he got all wrapped up in a blade of grass.

So no big bad car driver to blame it on.

But still in lots of pain.

So all in all its a win-win for us, not only is Cliffordu in pain - he can't blame anyone for it!

6. The good news is he'll be up on his bike living the dangerous life again soon!

You just can't keep a good adrenaline junkie down for long.

Cliffordu, you rock!

8. NOTE TO SELF:

Lie to Grantcart about how things are going so he won't out you on DU and then have to type everything with your iPhone using your left thumb only.

Grantcart is a butthead.

That mental note should keep your mind off the pain for awhile. I'm glad to see you are back online.

19. It coulda been worse...

http://gma.yahoo.com/justice-breyer-hospitalized-accident-192704488--abc-news-topstories.html

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has been hospitalized following a bicycle accident yesterday in Washington, D.C., a court spokesperson said today.

"Associate Justice Stephen Breyer underwent reverse shoulder replacement surgery for a proximal humerus fracture this morning at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital," court spokesperson Kathleen Arberg said. "The fracture was sustained in his right shoulder in a fall from his bicycle on Friday afternoon, April 26, near the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. He was taken by ambulance to the hospital following his injury."

The surgery was successful and Breyer is resting comfortably, the spokesperson said. He is expected to be released from the hospital early in the week.

Hi,
Ouchie, that looks painful. I just got a new bike that is a lot faster than my other one and has skinny tires. I have been being extra vigilant when I am riding the new one. I hope it heals quickly.

Peace
