A prayer for Ricky.

A buddy of mine was hurt badly in a car / motorcycle
wreck on Saturday night.
He was traveling west bound and a car was traveling east bound. The guy driving
the car wasn't paying attention and turned right in front of my friend.
Ricky, had no chance. there was a witness to the accident, and that
guy said that there was nothing that Ricky could of done. He was on a Late model Harley Heritage classic. the forks are bent, the front tire is touching the frame. He took a pretty good toss.
Right now he is in a drug induced coma. The Dr's think that they might try to
wake him up this weekend. But his pressure in his skull went back up today.
He hasn't had any change for the worse since the wreck. Ricky and his wife
have been good friends. I like Ricky cause he has a true heart of Gold. When
he barbeques at his apartment, none of the little kids that live there, go
without a hotdog or a hamburger. He works inside the Refinery and I work
outside of it. Whenever I need something in a bad way he can usually find it.
the kinda guy that'll do anything to help you or tell you when your being an Idiot.
His leg suffered a low compound fracture, he broke a couple of ribs and his
clavicle(?). He has pins and rods all up and down his leg now. I feel really
bad for him. We have our arguments about this and that, but I hate to see
him like this. His wife is a real sweetheart. My heart goes out to her. There
is a long story about how they ended up together. It's one of the best stories
that I have heard. He needs to get punched in the head for not wearing his helmet.
I ask you for your prayers for him and his wife, Carrol.

He developed Pnemonia. I dug into this a little bit more. What they didn't tell us at work, is that he had broken all of his ribs on the left side and one had punctured his lung.
On a better note, they pulled the tube out of his head and are thinking that they want to wake him up on Tuesday.
The company I work for has decided to match employee donations dollar for dollar.
We are having a Raffle at work for a Remington 700, 7mm/08.
I thank you for your prayers. I'm sure He will to when he wakes up.
But keep them coming.

He's in Dallas, going thru physical treatment. But he is coming around, it will take months before the doctors know how bad or good or if he's going to come around.
Again thanks for the prayers.
