    Ugh. Sounds like he's got a long road to climb.

    I will work on it but I want to wait until he's had the major surgery to bother his folks.

    Get well Manny!

    Moes - if his injuries are the type that will keep him laid up for a significant period of time, here are a couple of good sites his family may want to consider:

    www.caringbridge.org
    www.giveforward.com

    I recommend Caring bridge - a great friend and fellow Clutchfan is using it right now as his wife battles cancer.

    It's not fair how many bad things happen to some people who do not deserve them.

    At least it sounds like Manny is not in a life-threatening condition anymore.

    I'm hoping for a speedy recovery.

    OK. If I can send a check to their address that will be fine and if it's something they don't want shared publicly please email it to me through the site.

    Thanks for doing this Moes.

    So these surgeries are mostly to save his arm and he doesn't have anything that is directly life threatening?

    From what I can gather it seems like he's having surgery today to clean up bone fragments and then a "major" surgery on Monday. Not sure of the specifics but he is at least able to move around a little bit.

    This isn't surprising. When I broke my femur in a motorcycle accident I had a surgery where they cleaned up and pinned together the various pieces of bone floating around in my leg. Later I had another surgery to put a rod down the middle of the bone.

    Ah that makes sense. I was wondering what the major surgery could possibly be, that would qualify.
