Hey everyone. I want to say thank you to all of you who has reached out and help me on my Road 2 Recovery. You all mean so much to me and it’s making my life better. On Tuesday I was training and did a rhythm, It was a 3-3-3-on off. Well, the middle of the 3 triple my bike cut out and I landed head first which caused the following:
L1-L2 endplate fractures.
L3-L4 transverse process fractures.
L1-L3 spinous process fractures.
Left hip dislocation.
Right rib fractures 5-7.
Right scapular fracture.
Right hemothorax with chest tube placement.
So, right now we’re just trying to get healthy and get back standing on my feet. I’m in pain but no pain no gain!! So thank you everyone so much again I will be giving you guys updates.
