Arrow One of our own went down yesterday.

I received a real brief message from AJCruzin last night stating he crashed, and suffered a broken clavicle. I don't know anything else, at all. I'm starting this to offer him up some group support for a safe and speedy recovery, and I'm sure he'll post something at some point. The real good news clearly, is he's still alive and in one piece and was able to take a moment to get the message out, which is something of a good sign.

Thoughts, prayers, words, encouragement, (whatever you prefer) I'm sure he could use and would help at least mentally I think...

There is some good news here. The clavicle (coller bone) is the most commonly broken bone in the human body, its one our few structural flaws. Because so many people break that bone, the treatment and recovery processes have been perfected. He should be in a sling for 5 or 6 weeks (maybe less) and be just fine after that. I've broken mine before and accidentally broke someone else's (judo training) and we were both fine after just a few weeks.

I hope its the same for you AJ. Wishing you a speedy recovery...
