BLUEBERRIES...Who would've thought

Well, due to some complications coming out of anesthesia, Sean didn't get to leave the hospital till almost 5 hours after surgery! Problems with nausea and breathing. Once that was under control, I was able to take him home. Yesterday was rough...a really fun combination of trying to eat then puking it right back up. Couldn't keep pain meds down so the pain was really bad yesterday. His arm is so swollen it looks like a giant sausage about to burst it's casing!
Today is a bit better. He's able to keep some food down (blueberries, mostly) and the pain meds are staying in his system so that's better under control. The nausea is also getting better. Hopefully he'll feel more human on Monday and want to come to the shop for a little bit. We will keep you all posted!

Surgery, Finally!

It has been a rough 11 days, but we finally have surgery scheduled for tomorrow (Thursday)!! The TOSH Center in Murray is amazing and is really working with us. Thanks to all the generous donations from family, friends, and complete strangers, we were able to negotiate a reasonable down payment and are officially on the schedule!! The complete bill, of course, will soon follow, but the priority at this time is to get his arm fixed and get him back to work as soon as possible!! We cannot express how thankful we are to all of you who have donated so far to help us out. There just aren't words...

We are sincerely grateful and humbled by the compassion and generosity of everyone who has donated money, time, food, or other support over the past week! We want to specifically thank Roy Miller for the rad arm sling he got for Sean (see pic) that has allowed him to move around more without feeling his bone bounce around inside his arm (yuck!). Also, Brian Barton, who is fixing our Jeep right now and loaned us one of his cars to get around in until that's done (see other pic)!! Thanks, also to Bobby Lemieux, Tyler Williams, Jeff Forsyth and families for the amazing meals you've brought us!

Most of all, thanks to Steven Stone and Bolts Action who have generated so much "buzz" about this and have offered up their special services in helping to raise money to assist us in getting this crazy thing paid for. We just can't say enough!! We will keep you posted on the surgery time (we will know later today) and the subsequent success of said surgery!! We are anticipating being back to the shop and regular business hours starting Monday, February 13th if you need parts or just want to come by and say hi!

Business hours during broken bone time

OK..latest update... we finally have an appointment at the TOSH center in Murray on Monday for a consult with a surgeon there that will hopefully lead to a surgery on Tuesday...in the meantime, we will pretty much be closed for business. We will try to answer emails and at least ship parts, but the shop itself will be closed. We will keep posting and let you all know when we will be open again. Once the surgery happens, Cat should be at the shop the next day and ready for business! Thanks for your patience!

Broken Bone Update

A little update on what's going on with Sean's broken arm:

We still don't have a definite date for surgery but we hope to have a date set tomorrow and get Sean fixed up and back to work as soon as possible. We will update when we have a date for the new hardware to go in!

We have sincerely appreciated the well wishes and offers of help from our family and friends. We have had dinners brought to us, fellow mechanics and machinists who are planning on coming to the shop to help finish up some projects that need to get to customers, and offers of financial help. It is really touching that in this difficult time for us so many of you have reached out to us. We are truly blessed. This has been especially moving to Sean who is fiercely independent and can hardly even ask me to open a freaking package of chocolates for him cause he thinks he can just do it himself with one hand (which is actually kind of funny to watch)!

Against Sean's sense of independence and pride, I have opened both a Paypal account and a bank account at Mountain America Credit Union for those of you who have expressed your desire to help financially with this surgery. If you feel compelled to donate, the Paypal account is under my email at "cathymjordan@yahoo.com". To donate through the MACU account, you can go to any branch or call 1-800-748-4302 (press 0 for a live person) and ask to deposit to the donation account "Sean Jordan Surgery Fund". If you specifically say "donation account" they should waive the fee for the deposit. Again, we appreciate all your prayers and well wishes and hopefully Sean will be back at what he does best as soon as possible!
