Rider Injured

Monday, October 6, 2008

Our good friend Mike Ellis was involved in a scooter vs. auto accident this afternoon around 2pm in Port Arthur.  According to his wife, Pam, Mike may have broken both (update:  fortunately, just one) of his legs…

    Man, I hate news like that. We will keep Mike & Pam in our prayers.

    Spoke with Mike today before he went into surgery. His left leg/knee was definitely shattered; the right one, fortunately, was spared. He was struck by someone who ran a stop sign at a four-way stop yesterday afternoon.

    Ron mentioned today that we should get together and visit Mike, perhaps this Saturday. Let me know what y’all think; and let’s show Mike our support for him.

    Hello all,
    It would be nice if some of you could visit Mike, my brother. Everything Lorenzo has mentioned is true. Mike is a lifelong biker who’s been riding a Suzuki burgman 400 for the last couple of years. He is also an active member of ABATE, an organization that works for all bikers. It saddens and angers me that drivers do not look out for motorcycle and scooter riders when they are out driving. I will be there this weekend, and would have been there sooner, but I live in Houston. Take care all and watch out for each other.

    Sounds like a good Idea.

    Mike is scheduled for a second surgery this Thursday. This one is for the reconstruction of his left leg. All the best to a smooth one, Mike!–Lorenzo

    Mike is recovering from his (2nd) reconstructive knee surgery at the hospital. Surgeon said it was a complete success! In a year, he may need another surgery; but in the meantime, Mike’s left leg is strapped on to a pneumatic bending/stretching machine to jump start his recovery. He should be home next week.–Lorenzo
