    I am Gooserider's long-time girlfriend.

    He has had an accident involving
    a piece of tree falling on him.
    It has broken his leg just below the knee
    and broken some ribs, which tore his aorta
    and may have slightly punctured a lung.

    So, he is in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit
    at Lahey Clinic. Only family are allowed to visit
    or call.

    He will not be able to moderate for at least
    some days, maybe longer.

    If you want to do something for him
    and believe in prayer or equivalent,
    any good wishes for his well being and
    for the competence of his doctors would
    be welcome.

    Mary-Anne

    Hope and well-wishes forthcoming.
    Also hopes for no pneumonia nor pleurisy in the lung from broken ribs.

    Lahey's supposed to be a good place to be should there need be.

    Mary-Anne, thanks very much for letting us know here. I've linked your thread into the Moderators' forum, so the Webmaster and other mods will be aware of the situation. Our very best wishes go out to Goose, and to you. Please keep us updated here on the situation...probably the most appropriate forum to post in for this would be the Ash Can. I'll move this thread over there and the discussion can continue. Thanks again for letting us know. Rick

    Wow. Must be some damn sore about now if drugs permit such a thing.

    I wish only the best for a very speedy recovery.

    And a very big, warm hug for you, Mary-Anne. You must be worried sick about Goose. I wish there was something I could do for you... words seem so insignificant right now.

    I think I speak for many of us on how much help Goose has always provided everyone with his well thought out posts.
    You are both in our thoughts and our prayers, and please keep us updated on his condition.
    We will say a few prayers tonight for you both.

    Lahey Clinic is one of the best. Know it fairly well from my wife's family's health care there. Thoughts and prayers are with the Goose. Hope he recovers quick!

    Yikes! That's shocking news. Thanks for letting us know Mary-Anne. I hope he's not in too much pain and heals quickly. Please let him know we're all thinking about him and pulling for his fast recovery.

    Had to be a fluke, Goose is a careful dude. But it's a good warning to all of us. Be careful out there.
