Friends On The Mend (Follow-Up)

As a follow-up to our report on friends Tom & Cheryl being run-down by a motorist in Pennsylvania last week, we’ve shared some Emails with Tom and have been otherwise keeping up on their recovery via some mutual tandem friends from Indiana and their respective Facebook updates.

Their indomitable spirits and positive attitudes are serving them both well as their soft tissue injuries and Cheryl’s fractures begin to heal.  Frankly, if someone could wish themselves “better” and accelerate what I suspect is an 8-10 week recovery period for the fractures in her pelvis, Cheryl can certainly do it.  She and Tom are both focused on getting back on a bike as soon as possible.

Thankfully, they are surrounded by friends and family who are able to lend a helping hand.  Again, we’re in awe of their ability to make light of just about everything and focus on the future.  Hopefully, the clear and present business of sorting out the motorist’s liability for the collision is moving forward quickly as well.

Sorry to say, no further details have come my way on the fatal tandem cycling incidents that we reported on from Onedia, Wisconsin or Casa Grande, Arizona.



About TG

I've been around a bit and done a few things, have a couple kids and a few grandkids. I tend to be curmudgeonly, matter-of-fact and not predisposed to self-serving chit-chat. Thankfully, my wife's as nice as can be otherwise we'd have no friends. My interests are somewhat eclectic, but whose aren't?
