Perhaps some of you noticed the pictures of Grampa Al's snowblower set up, well here is some bad news. On Tuesday, Al slipped on some wet leaves on his way out to his shop and fell. After offering some invective laced advice to the god's of wet leaves he was back in action and took care of his project list for the rest of the day. The next morning he was experiencing a great deal of discomfort and went to River Hospital to get checked out.
He was examined, scans were taken and he was immediately strapped to a board and transported by ambulance to SUNY upstate medical center trauma center in Syracuse. It appears the Grampa has BROKEN HIS NECK. Apparently 2 more millimeters would have severed his spinal cord.
Due to his age (80) and underlying health conditions it was determined that he would not survive a surgical repair. He is now home with an immobilization apparatus and he has been informed that he can't attempt to move his head for at least 3 months. Right now he needs all of our prayers and well wishes
I know he will be going crazy so if any of his brother cubbers would like to drop a dime on him his telephone number is (315)658-2681 .
Very unfortunate. But these Farmall guys are strong, I hope he heals real soon.

He's a tough old bird. Should do fine, IF you can get him to follow orders. Keeping him down, won't be easy.

Wow poor Al, he is a great guy and I have enjoyed chatting with him even, if he lets you tag along. Seriously, it's going to be tough for Al to lay low I am sure he will be well taken care of. My thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery.

Part of life is falling down, living is getting back up.
Grandpa Al has my prayers. I know what it would be like if I was restricted to doing nothing for 3 months. My wife would leave home.

Please extend my regards and best wishes to him for a speedy and complete recovery , I always enjoy talking to him at NE Fest, he is a fine gentleman.
I started out with nothing and now I only have half of that left !
Send along my wishes for a "tolerable" recovery. I imagine he's in a halo rig and that's got to be a pain to wear and sleep in.

I am confident that Grampa Al will recover fine, although some of the family members may be a little worse for wear. He is a tough ole bugger. Prayer has been lifted up.

Andrew, tell him to do as the docs say. I asked him to bring the mower attachment next year and let him know I expect him to show up. Pris and I wish him a speedy and full recovery.
Prayers are being sent for a full recovery

Please let Al know that he is in our prayers (+) and we are wishing him well and a speedy recovery. I know it is going to drive him crazy .... having to sit still for 3 months.
