JR - an update
Haven't spoken to the man himself yet, but have had several conversations with his wife Shelley.
As I write, John is still in hospital in Dartford. His injuries are as described, but one of the fractures is to a lower vertibra, and it's a bad compression fracture and will require surgery.
Initially the thought was to move him to Kings hosipital in London, but having seen the scans, Nottingham Queens are happy to take him there as it's closer to his family.
John is currently lying strapped to a board with little movement allowed, and I know he will be climbing the walls with boredom.
Every day there is hope that he will be moved up to Queens, but as yet we still wait. I hope to get down to see him on Friday, and will pass on the good wishes of the club as I know he is highly respected not only by Ducatisti, but by all motorcyclists.
Will post more as and when I know.
