BUT HE'S MY "BIFF"!


Tony, Tony, Tony.....what am I going to do with him! February 7th he went out mountain bike riding with friends as their last training ride before their February 14-15 24 hour relay race. Shortly into the trail, Tony crashed. Since his nickname with the group is "Biff", a crash didn't surprise anyone....until they saw the blood coming down his face. When they got to him to help, his left arm was in a lot of pain. Paramedics were called and took him to Chandler Regional Hospital. After x-rays and CT scans of his head and chest we found out the news. Four, possibly five broken ribs and there was a little air in his chest where it shouldn't be. So, Tony had to be transported by another ambulance to Scottsdale Osborn Hospital - to their trauma center. The next day after more x-rays, they confirmed that he had punctured his lung. After a lovely 3 day, 2 night stay in the hospital, he was able to come home. Hopefully he'll be back at work next week, especially since he is SUPER CRANKY. (can't blame him though!)

Poor Tony! All that hard work and that's what he gets! No wonder he's cranky! We hope he has a speedy recovery!
