    Exclamation Prayers for Michael McMurtray (calvinsbike)

    Michael took a very bad fall tonight on the Pflugerville hike and bike when he topped a hill near a concrete spill way and misjudged his approach sending him face first over a 3 foot wall onto concrete.

    He immediately began spitting blood. Cinnamon called 911. They stabilized him and with the help of Jason Hix we managed to get him to agree to let Jason take him to RR ER.

    Cinnamon and I just left there about midnight leaving Jason to wait for Michael's ex-wife and daughter.

    While we were there we learned that all of his facial bones above his jaw are broken. His first CT scan also revealed that he is bleeding around his brain and has air around it. They are sending him for a second scan to make sure his carotid artery is clean from and broken fragments.

    He will be moved to ICU for care and observation. The doctor indicated that the next 12-24 hours will be the most crucial.

    Please pray for Michael in his time suffering. Thanks to Chuck, Cinnamon, Jason, and Bob for helping a friend during such a bad time.

    Yeah, it's not good. When we left he was still coherent but in pain. He knew where he was, who the president was and how many dimes in a dollar... Although he was getting pretty pissed about having to repeat himself.

    Visiting hours are 8 to 8 but the charge nurse says you can visit anytime.

    His wife Jan and his older daughter are with him now.

    He was conscious the whole time he was with me and in the ER, but he is in very bad shape.

    Glad his family is with him (and that his second family was there to get him to the hospital)! Glad he is conscious but terribly sad that this has happened!

    Also, his helmet was severely broken in 3 places. I know they are for safety and always believed they would work but I have no doubt that after seeing his fall and damage to him and the helmet that it 100%, literally, saved his life.

    Wow.....
    So often times it happens, that we live our lives in chains, and never even know we have the key.


    Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.

    There's an distinct silence as you're flying over your handlebars. You just wish it would never end. Trust me on that.
