Bud Fisher's Accident

Postby Russ Leggitt » Thu Jan 10, 2008 8:01 pm

Hi All,

I just wanted to share with you news I received today about Bud's auto
accident he had late yesterday afternoon. He had a head-on with another
pickup at about 50 mph. Bud's right foot/ankle was pinned in due to the
impact for some period of time and had to be cut out. He was air lifted
to a hospital in Memphis, Tn. His little daughter was in the vehicle at the
time and sustained "NO" injuries.

I just talked with Bud. He is is good spirits and is in no pain. The concern
now is the possibility of infection. The doctors placed screws in his foot
and have taken other measures to stabalize the bones. Additional
operations will be required in the near future. I am sure Bud would
appreciate our thoughts and prayers.

Russ,
Thanks for posting the info. Our prayers go out to Bud and all his Family. It can be very trying to manage everything at a time like this. I know it happened to me on Oct 9th, right after Stonethrow. We're just glad it wasn't any more serious than it was.

I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.
