Guys like Dave who spent their full tour on a brown water boat were some brave guys. Prayers up for Dave.

Thumbs up

We have an update from Roger. This is good news....

Dave is doing a little better. They are letting him come out of the induced coma. The swelling in his head (brain) is almost gone. He has one crushed eye socket. Don't know if he will be able to see with that eye or not. Dr's say it looks positive for a pretty good recovery, but it will take a while. Tough - tough little guy. It appears everybody's prayers are helping. We (Lou) got his bike out of the impound yard and it will survive. I have an exact front end for it, but there will be a "Dutch Uncle - How the Cow eats the cabbage" sit down before he gets back on that bike. He needs to be reminded that in your mid sixties you are not "10 feet tall & Bullet Proof" anymore - you are now down to 5"3 / 110 lbs and vulnerable.

Great news that it sounds like he'll pull through. Sounds like a long recovery though.
