“First off I just wanna say I love you @stevevandoren for takin’ care of me, your such an amazin’ person and I appreciate ya so much ❤️ So here’s the deal, I fell on a simple X-up on vert, I don’t know how the hell that happened but it did. I clipped back wheel, and went straight to the flat bottom. I got sideswiped. I got knocked out I knew that I hurt my ribs, I felt like I probably broke one and decided I wasn’t gonna go to the hospital because I’ve had a broken rib before and there’s really not much they can do for it. So I went out that night, for sushi and drinks till about 3:30 in the morning. Then I tried to go to bed, but couldn’t sleep that well, I couldn’t lay down so I had to sleep sitting up. My ribs killed so if I laid down I might not be able to get back up 😜 In the morning I tried to put on my shoes and I barely made it to the restroom. I was so outta breathe and had a loss of breath and no energy. Bottom line is I couldn’t breathe. So at about 3 PM after trying to get up over and over again, I got the strength to get an Uber to the @vanswarpedtour to try to get some medicine from the onsite medics for my plane ride home the next day. I could barely walk without losing my breath so @stevevandoren and @kevinlyman said you have to go to the hospital dude. I was like your right I can’t breathe. So I’ve been at the hospital for almost 24 hours and here’s the deal I broke seven ribs on my right side, fractured vertebrae in my lower back on the right side, I got knocked out during the slam and they drained 3 pints of blood from my lungs so far. I might have to have another surgery because there’s more blood in there. All the blood came out of my lungs. Most likely got punctured by a rib. I’m gonna be stuck here for three or four more days I hope they give me food soon… ⚡️STAY RAD⚡️ #rickthorne #stayrad #hospital #lunges #blood #slam”
