Ouch!

Hey all:

One of the people who helped contribute to working daze as the real life partial inspiration to Roy got hurt pretty bad on Sunday. He was up on a ladder at his stepmother's house cutting down a branch with a chain saw. This real life Roy (we will call him Ron cause that's his name) succeeded in bringing down the branch, unfortunately (I think you can see where this is going) the branch also brought him down. He fell 20 ft, luckily, and luck is a very relative term here the chain saw didn't land on him.

Of course even without getting clocked by the saw he still received significant damage and had to be airlifted to a nearby trauma center. He is on the road to recovery now from: two broken heels, a broken ankle, a broken wrist (many bones in the wrist) and a couple of cracked vertebrate.

Feel free to post your "get well soon" wishes.

He is still texting and sending photos from his Iphone but finding it is very difficult with one hand.

Hope you feel better soon, but as you are recovering contemplating which browser to use you might want to try Chrome's developer version.

and you can always use more than one.

Having just spent some time on a tall ladder doing similar work, Ron definitely has my sympathy. It scares me to think about it. GET WELL SOON!

OUCH! That is nasty! I hope Ron gets well soon.

please pass on my sympathies - I've had both broken wrists and a broken ankle (though not at the same time) - take care
