I just received vmail from my arch-rival, Jim G: he has been in the hospital for several days following a serious motorbike accident.
He bought a bike this summer and (at the insistence of me and others) took a safety class. I don't know what happened.
I know he is conscious and he said he will be ok in an abbreviated conversation. But there are broken bones, a concussion, and a bunch of other stuff.
I'm in shock. We were supposed to do a team run on Sunday morning and I had been vaguely wondering why his email was so silent.
Naturally, both Jim and his family are in my prayers.
