I am sorry to hear that! My worse fear is when my kid crashes hard...I have been behind my son when hes biffed it pretty good on his XR-80 and I cringe every time...its not fun. I see you live in So Cal, were you in Lucerne valley when that happened?

Sorry to hear that DirtbknDad! I am glad he is doing better. Be sure to keep us updated. You did the right thing with the helicopter. Being knocked out cold with broken collar bone and then a siezure could have meant head trauma or spinal injury and you do not want to take that gamble.

Well as you can see we/he is home from the hospital. You may also notice (by the short note of thanks) typing isn't his forte right now.

He is doing all right everything checks out and alas we are home. He hated every minute he spent in the hospital but as I told him it was all worth it to know he was ok. We will be searching for another jersey thoughconsidering his will be flapping in the wind a little much now.
I would like to take a moment and respond or make a comment on some things written in the great posts you guys left me and him.

Rick I will definitely let everyone that rides with me know what they might be in for. Does this mean you won't be riding anywhere near me at SLC?
Dell what Mstwister said and then what Keeto said. Since the paramedics at the fire station closest to the place I ride along with two mx tracks (and see this stuff all the time) didn't think it was over kill I didn't either. When someone wants my professional opinion on plumbing and they know nothing about it they trust that I am giving them good advice. The doctors said that the head trauma can be terrible and time is of the essence. I don't care if I have to file bankruptcy or sell my house to pay that bill (which KTM is right the bill should be about $5,000) I would do it again in a heart beat!! You don't take a chance with your kids or friends do the safest thing. I feel like an a$$ for not calling 911 right when I found him unconscious. I could have cost him his life by making a bad decision to go get the truck and come back to get him. Don't take this wrong Dell I am not mad at what you said just making my explanation and trying to show your young mind that when a persons (especially your child) health is at risk you don't take chances. I hope when you are riding with your friends you do the right thing and don't make a bad decision that you might regret later on. Thank you Mstwister and Keeto your words are very true.
I have ask many questions of the doctors and paramedics when ever I am involved with an incident like this so I can learn more on how to give care to a victim I might run across or be with at the time of an accident like this. As you all know doing the proper things and knowing what not to do in certain situations and how soon you start treating with the proper care can make a big difference in the out come and recovery of the patient. I think due to the nature of our beloved sport it can't hurt to learn as much as possible about treating and making initial diagnosis. The information you give paramedics and doctors is vital to their diagnosis and treatment of somebody. The more you know about it the better information you can give and the faster they can treat. Red Cross first aid classes are a good way to get informed. Am. Red Cross courses I am very sorry for being so long winded I will climb down of my podium now and let you all go about your day. Thank You for reading and your wonderful kind words for my son and I.

Dane

Glad to hear Jack is home...it was also nice to see him posting here

I agree Dane, from a medical standpoint, loss of consciousness related to possible head trauma is extremely serious. Add to that seizing following the trauma and you have to be very concerned about swelling and/or brain injury.

Anyways...glad to hear he is alright. Tell him to heal up so we can go riding
