Sad news for all my Motorcycle Brothers and Sisters.

Received some sad news about Jaxon Davies from a friend of his, Lets keep Jaxon in our prayers.

He had an aneurysm rupture in his brain Sunday night. 6 hours of surgery yesterday. The surgery went as well as possible. He will be in ICU for 12 days, has a breathing tube in, and in med. Induced coma. He is expected to make a full recovery if there are no complications. Just thought you might want to know.

I'm rooting for him. Sounds like the Docs are optimistic so that's a good sign.

Well, lets hope he comes out alright. I've known a few guys that have survived this with few ill effects. Though one guy became a politician afterward.

SELF INTRODUCTION: I was on the last board as bonustoolkit. I have changed that to my given name.
I started a project build there " File and Fit." I paln to continue that when I go back home in Dec. 2011. I first joined the board when Gary W had it in the year 2005. That was the time I really gained an interest in building chops. I have a long way to go, compared to some here.

He is still in ICU. He showing symptoms of vasospasims and is being monitored. He isn't allowed any visitors. However he has been awake, talked and joked and pinched a nurse on the butt! All the tubes are out and he is eating some. I am getting my info from his sister. He still had a long road to travel to a full recovery.

SELF INTRODUCTION: Hi Dan, thanks for your time and energy spent on this new board. I hope you will give me a waiver on the email account, I have used gmail so long I don't have a clue what my service provider account is.
I just returned home from a 2 week trip in New Mexico, have a few good pix, can't wait to share my off-highway traveling. Got to put 1400 miles on the scoot.

Update......

Jaxon is out of the hospital and home again. He has started posting on Spacebook again, and seems to returned to (well I won't say normal, are any of us?) his old self.
I think he is working in the shop again also.

Very fortunate in some ways, although I think he has some debt built up due to this.
