Scott Jacobs in Motorcycle Accident
I wanted to give you all an update on Scott's shoulder and timeline of when he thinks he will be able to paint again.
As most of you already know, Scott endured a traumatic injury on the second day of the Motorcycle Cannonball last month when he encountered unexpected gravel on the road.
For those that aren't up to speed...
Scott and Sharon signed up to race two 1915 Harley-Davidson's across the country. Going from New Jersey to California, they'd take 17 days alongside 70-100 other vintage motorcycle riders.
Day 2 of the Race
Scott was in for a surprise when he rode up on unexpected gravel at an intersection.
In an effort to save himself from being run over by intersecting traffic, he laid his 1915 Harley down on the left side to slow himself down. As he slid across the ice-like road as if he were a dirt track racer, his left foot peg stuck into the ground and catapulted him in the opposite direction where he landed on his right shoulder and head.
Scott was rushed to the hospital where he stayed for almost a week.
His accident resulted in a four-part humerus fracture, 75% bicep tear, and shoulder replacement.
The X-rays below show Scott's broken humeral bone (top) and his new artificial humeral bone after the surgery (bottom).
Scott is currently undergoing Physical Therapy three times a week where they will help with his mobility. He is expected to continue therapy for another 3-6 months before he can consider picking up a paintbrush.
We appreciate all of your love and support through this difficult time.
Keep sending all of your words of encouragement.
It truly helps him!
