    He's being transferred to a hospital in Miami for surgery. Fingers crossed.

    Sorry to your uncle to have to endure this awfulness. Hope he has a speedy recovery.

    Riding your bike to broken neck, unbelievable

    Good grief.

    Was the assailant charged with anything?

    Felony assault. Uncle is still awaiting surgery. Even if successful he will not have full neck movement again. His daughter sent me video of him in the hospital. He’s in good spirits and has use of his arms, which is a good sign. Still, I’m just livid.

    He's finally having surgery right now. Insurance wouldn't approve his transfer to Miami initially, so they've had to wait. Fingers crossed.

    Good luck, hope the (alleged) attacker gets Whitey Bulger’d in jail.

    All went well with surgery yesterday. Screws are in place in his neck, and he's moving his hands and feet. He will never have full range of movement in his neck again, but all things considered, this is the best possible outcome.

    Thanks for asking.

    Now hopefully we can focus on sending his assailant to prison and with suing the living crap out of him.
