    Another update from his Facebook Friends this afternoon.

    He had surgery on his broken left leg. He has a broken right arm, fractured face, lacerations. Internal bleeding, neck brace. Apparently a truck turned left in front of him on Linden and Xenia avenues. He had no time to react. Thrown through the air and landed on his bike, face first. Many, many surgeries ahead. He is coherent, and his sister and brother in law are there.

    A few more details from his Facebook page.

    He has several injuries and had surgery Sunday afternoon for a shattered knee. He has a broken arm, internal bleeding, needs reconstructive surgery on his face, a spinal injury, a hand in need of surgery and many cuts including a split forehead. Because he landed on his face and crushed his sinuses, he's on a ventilator to keep him breathing comfortable.

    This is indeed terrible news. He will be in my thoughts.

    With my thinking cap on "Hobbit" is that short for "House Hobbit?"


    Cheers

    That's him Pat, he's a regular in the CFS3 forum, a major contributor of CFS3 missions and a great character. We're rather worried about him.

    All positive thoughts headed his way from here in Delaware.

    Thanks for keeping us up-to-date on the situation.

    Wow! Will be praying for sure. I'm relieved it seems he's improving, but sounds like a very long road ahead. Thanks Andy and stump for keeping us informed!

    P.S. Owen, didn't anyone tell you you can't ride a motorcycle upside down?

    May God Bless you and wish you speedy recovery. Ameen!

    Wow what dreadful news, I wish Hobbit a speedy recovery. Having just restored a motorcycle, it is a sobering reminder for me to use good safety gear....

    I will pray for his recovery.

    He is one of our best.

    From last evening on FB:

    Owen Perkins update. First and foremost those that know him realize he goes by the name Hobbit. So as you can see this is how he's addressed by the staff at Miami Valley. (Although it's spelled wrong on that board). The Dr. came in and said "Hey Hobbit, this is your night nurse!" So with that being said, he's a big hot mess. Had surgery on his leg it's set with rods and pins. His broken arm is wrapped and surgery is soon for that. His left eye is swollen and pretty much hidden in the puffiness. Loads of stitches ...forehead and nose. He said many reconstructive surgeries necessary there. He's in a neck brace and there is concern about his spine which is badly bruised. He was coherent but undoubtedly in a great deal of pain. I knew he was drugged up when he said he loved me and I was like a sister to him. His blood pressure is very low but he's on medication to raise it. I asked if he was up for visitors and he said, "Oh yea, as long as they bring 3 blondes and lots of singles!" I'm going to attempt to see him at least once a week. This road will be long and difficult. He's aware of it, and determined. That's a start!

    Man...I'm glad that Hobbit has made it through the roughest part. The first hours are the worst.

    Please forward my thoughts and encouragement for his long recovery process. It's not easy, but it can be done...one step at a time.

    I've followed the thread since it first posted and have held my breath to this point. We are all breathing a small sigh of relief now and will send every bit of energy towards our friend from here on.
    Courage and strength create their own healing. Hobbit has a ton of both.

    May he get better. God be with him and his Family.

    I got in to see him this evening. They moved Owen out of intensive care this morning. He has a long way to go and four more surgeries over the next year, but his progress has been amazing so far. The nurse told me that he's getting lots of visitors now. Room 4413 Miami Valley Hospital.

    They've arrested the hit and run driver, an experienced lawyer has taken Hobbit's case, and there is a video showing the whole thing, so they have a strong case.



    The Area Code is 937. Someone would need to answer for him, as he's immobile, and on morphine, and oxycontin pain killers.



    They initially thought he would be in the Hospital at least a month, but he seems to be ahead of that schedule so far.
