Raven Is Down.............Not Out!

Postby stonyman » Tue Jun 03, 2008 3:09 pm

I just talked to my bro Raven a little while ago. He was injured on-duty while chasing a BG through a construction site. Raven caught up with the BG guy grabbed and went to ground. Rave lost his step on concrete slab, tried to brace himself for the fall...........hand slid a bit into a bunch of Rebar. It mangled his hand pretty good.

He had one surgery yesterday and another scheduled for Thursday to try an repair the detached nerve ending in his hand. Please send out your prayers and well wishes to my bro. As you all know he was preparing for a big bmx season. Raven was pretty down about the season, but more concerned about his Spydy family knowing that he is okay, so give him a soundoff when you can!.......................Raven heal well and follow the Doc's and mama Ravens orders! ;)

I hate hearing that about Raven. He seems like a strong, positive guy and I imagine won't stay slowed down any longer than he has to.

Raven, we're thinking about you and sending our prayers. Heal up fast brother. Joe
