Default KirtwellJR shattered his arm this weekend

     

Nathan and I went riding Saturday at Nocona and had the best time riding with DPW (Dennis) and his girlfriend (Antonia)

We ended up at Barnett's on the way home because Nathan wanted to jump the finish line jump....

He jumped it but when he landed his clutch hand came off the bars and the bars turned hard right and endo'd him 3rd gear pinned.

I ran over to him and saw he had a compound fracture of his wrist and it was shaped like a letter Z. I drove him over to Texoma Medical Center in Sherman Texas where they later told me he shattered his wrist and the joint in his elbow was in 3 pieces. They didn't want to touch it so they transfered him to Children's Medical Center of Dallas where he had surgery to fix the wrist and to relieve pressure they cut his arm from his bicep to the middle of his hand.
He's needing at least 2 more surgeries by Friday to repair the elbow and to try and close the wound on his arm...he's been in and out all day but in alot of pain.....
Say a prayer for this kid...everyone that knows Nathan knows he's a great kid and I know he will pull through this...

I'll pass on any kind words to him as they come..

Thanks
Kirtwell

Curtis,
As a riding/racing dad, I know exactly how you feel. I know how I cringe at the thought of Clint getting seriously hurt but I am also proud of him as he gets faster and masters a few more mysteries of this very difficult sport. At least Nathan wasn't doing something stupid. We've all jumped the finish line jump at Nocona and it's not like he was taking a risk he shouldn't have taken. Just encourage him through the pain and tell him we'll be riding with him again in no time. I'm sorry my friend. Please post a phone # and an address. Nathan is one of the best kids I've had the pleasure of riding with. Always humble and always smiling. He deserves some support from us.

Wow, sorry to hear about this. I hope Nathan gets better soon.

For us old guys, this would be just another flesh wound, but when it's your kid it's a whole different ball game. They should put a Y fitting on the morphine drip for the parent.

Dude-

That is terrible news. You need anything? I am not too far from you. You want a place to crash, I could probably call T2, he's in Plano, not far from you at all?

Need any help getting everything back to OK or getting around in Dallas, just let me know. You call, I haul.

Office is the best place to find me. 940-627-6800

KJr. will be fine. He will not feel real good for a bit, but he's tough. Remember, he's a Kirtwell.

James

Kirtwell,

From one dad with a kid who rides/races to another: I feel your pain. This is the greatest sport I have ever known, but it sure does come with a price sometimes. I am really sorry to hear about Nathan. DPW and I rode together today and he as telling me how good Nathan was looking at Nocona yesterday.

Please post or PM me your mailing address when you get time.

Curtis, I cringed when I read the headline bro. Tell Nathan that we are behind him and wish him a speedy recovery.

If you need anything at all, remember I owe you one for helping me out when I was injured.

I spoke to Curtis last night. You guys, the Caldwell family needs your prayers. Nathan will be fine but they have several challenges ahead.

I am going to go see Nathan Tuesday. Curtis will call me and let me know where they are because they may be moving Nathan to another hospital.

It will be hard for Kirtwell to update so I will try my best.
