Friday Vicky and I went for a nice dirt ride at our local OHV area, Prarie City. Vicky was on her DRZ400SM doing great. After the ride I wanted a hot dog at Costco $1.50 with a drink. Vicky, being wise wanted to wait until later to get a hot dog but I would have none of that. Needed it now. So, we got a hotdog and after that the disaster occurred…
Vicky fell down and her DRZ400SM fell on her right leg. Crunch. Broke her leg, just like that. Wasn’t even moving. Now a broke leg doesn’t sound so bad. But this is a Tibia Plataue fracture that basically broke off her partial knee replacement hardware. This is a mess.
She is going to require three operations
First a external fixater, then a ORIF, basically screws to put the tibia back together. Then months of recovery. Then later a total knee replacement. Basically it is very unlikely she will be able to ride a motorcycle for 6 months.
She is crushed.
Please wish her well.
Good time for her to become a computer expert.
Vicky had her second operation last night hopefully will get to go home soon.
