Say a Prayer For My Dad today

32 posts in this topic

Father went under the knife this morning in Asheville.

Last Friday afternoon, he slipped and fell down a 25 foot embankment at his house outside of Sylva, NC. He broke his neck in 4 places.

The doctors say he is one of the luckiest people they have ever seen, because there does not appear to be any spinal cord damage. However, he did fractured 4 out of the 5 vertebrae in his neck.

One actually broke one vertebrae the front and the back.....that is what saved him from being completely paralyzed. They said that if it had only broken on one side, it would have absolutely severed his spinal cord.

Anyway, he is undergoing 12 hours of surgery to install pins, plates, and even a bone graph in his neck (taking bone from his hip).

He is 74 years old and is in for a long recovery.

    • With what's left on the board, might just wait for teams to cut some guys at safety if we're not comfortable. This late in the draft I think we could see WR (yep), TE, LB or DT (It's DG), CB, or I'm totally on board with the K idea.    Hopefully DG is in on Barnidge...even if we draft a Butt or Kittle.  Olsen, Barnidge, Butt as our 3 TEs? Yes plz.  Not as big on RB today since I think we're set with Stew, CMC, Fozzy.  CAP gets cut, and Samuel is a damn good emergency back option. FB would be nice, but maybe they give Rockhead a chance.
