Let's be careful out there.
My cousin, Eric Rose, had, about 4 weeks ago, a horrible skiing accident in Vermont, not too too far from his home there.
He broke his back (!), was medevac'ed to Dartmouth, and thence to the Magee rehab center in Philadelphia (near his parents and my family).
He broke his lower two thoracic vertebrae (T11/T12) and has permanent spinal cord injury. He's going to be wheelchair-bound for the foreseeable future.
He's hoping for release on April 20th (so he'll be spending the first two nights of Passover in the hospital, it sounds like) and for a speedy return to Vermont thereafter.
There are people sponsoring a bike-a-thon to help raise money to help Eric (figuratively) get back on his feet.
My heart goes out to Eric, his saintly wife Chris and their son David.
