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!)
