Yes we're still friends. He feels so bad about it already so I can't be too upset with him. He's afraid I'm going to sue him and I have no such intentions. He's 25 years younger than me and his dad told me he was on the verge of tears the next day over it, so I called him today and told him to stop worrying about it. I saw my doctor today and he showed me the x rays and I can't believe what I saw. I've made it all of my life (56 years) without a broken bone and now have 9 broken bones and each one is broken in at least 2 places. The collar bone is snapped in 3 pieces. The irony is I retired from 33 years at Boeing about 4 hours before this happened and avoided serious injuries for all of that time.
