Tommy Girard Injury Status
« on: July 28, 2008, 02:19:19 pm »
He is currently at Beloit Mermorial Hospital diagnosed with a collapsed lung. After getting checked out by the infield medic shed following the race he was complaining about chest pain & his voiced changed.
He had blood in his saliva and we immediately got him to the hospital. Corner worker & friend of Tommy, Mike Byrd, took him there.
He has  a tube in his chest to drain fluid and pump oxygen in his left lung.
I just talked to Tommy on the phone and he sounds good. He gets a little short winded after talking for a bit. He says he should be ok and wants to make it to the next Blackhawk in August. He is really eager to make all the rounds and keep his #1 plate. His last #1 plate was in 1996.

Tommy had one of his best weekend racing as he went the fastest he ever did. He feels back up to speed. Hopefully he heals quickly and is able to make the next round. I'm not sure on the prognosis of healing a collapsed lung.

I believe he will be there for a couple days and I will keep everyone informed on his status.

I did see Rob after the crash. He came over to our pit. He is fine other than a strange left bicep muscle. It works fine. I think he bruised his muscle is all.

Rob's whole body is strange... how can he be so damn skinny. He is like 6 feet tall and 140 lbs....that isn't right!

Tommy will be fine.

Benj.

Good to hear he is doing OK. I talked to him right after it happened and his voice was starting to change! Hey Tommy, heal quickly man!

I won't call him for a few days. I am sure he wishes to rest his voice right now.

I also talked to Tommy this AM. He should be out by tomorrow.

He was really thankful for all of the help by the SpeedTech crew, Jason, AJ & Paul Krause and everyone who helped him pack up.

I think he did it on purpose. He wanted to psych out the competition and he also knows that chicks dig scars. :biggrin:

Heal up fast Tommy G! I promise not to make you laugh too hard.
