Joe's Tragic Injury
I spent last night in the emergency room at Genesys in Grand Blanc, MI. My homeslice Joe Vichich mislanded a jump at Mt Holly and sustained a mystery injury, that we had hoped was just a garden variety sprain pulled muscle or something merely character-building like that. Joe got carted away on a snowmobile by ski patrol, then got put in an ambulance and sent to the ER. At the ER, we found out that it was nothing so vulgar as a sprain, but a super-deluxe full blown fracture of the right femur. Requiring surgery.
I sketched this femur so the doc could draw where the fracture is, and what the surgery will do.
