Details are limited right now, but apparently an evil car lift jumped up and attacked Tim. Sounds like he is ok, but pretty bruised and battered. I was going to post his hospital pic, but it is not for the squeamish. Check him out on Facebook Tim Prewitt if you want to see the gory details. Get better quick Tim!

That looks ugly, did this happen at work or home? Either way take care and get back to qet wrenching soon.

01-21-2011, 01:09 PM
Yikes, hope you get well soon!

01-21-2011, 01:34 PM
Bummer Tim!

I'm not a Facebooker but it sounds painful. Get better soon!

01-21-2011, 01:35 PM
Ouch! Heal up Quick.

01-21-2011, 01:58 PM
Yea. I either had a seizur or blacked out. And fell and hit the corner of the lift. Split my head open in the shape of a "Y" all the way down to my skull. The guys at the shop said it looks like I lost 3 qt's of blood. In A huge puddle half the size of my body. Right now I'm soar and get dizzy and light headed every time I stand up. Luckily I was scheduled a 3 day weekend this week end. But not quite what I was hoping to accomplish. And they gave me 10 stitches. First time I've ever got stitches

01-21-2011, 02:02 PM
Oh man, Tim, that looks painful. Glad you've got a hard head! Hope that happened at work so you get workers' comp. Let us know if you need meals or beers or whatever else.

01-21-2011, 02:50 PM

Get better Tim

01-21-2011, 04:06 PM
Thanks guys. I appreciate it. Right now I'm just drifting in and out of sleep about every time my head lies Down

01-21-2011, 04:18 PM
The caption to the pic should be: "yeah, but you should see what the other guy looks like."

Take it easy and give yourself time to heal and recover. Glad you will be ok.

01-21-2011, 04:30 PM
man, the pic must be bad....

01-21-2011, 05:14 PM
I can't load the pics from my iPhone. If anyone wants to upload them from Facebook it's not going to hurt my feelings

Yes !

01-21-2011, 05:59 PM
Dude, seriously. Get better quick. I was wondering why you hadn't wanted to stop by today...

01-21-2011, 06:02 PM
Tim, get well soon.

01-21-2011, 06:05 PM
Tim, I hope you heal up quick. Hope the scars look cool.

01-21-2011, 06:28 PM
Dude :eek:

Make sure Cindi checks on you when sleeping and check into why you blacked out in the first place!! Get better soon

ouch...any idea what caused it?

get better :)

01-21-2011, 07:59 PM
I'm thinking it was caused by a seziur. But I don't know. Everytime in I'm the hospital and they do a butt load of expensive tests. They all ways tell me I'm as health as an ox

And I'm refusing to use neosporan because of hoping for a cool scar

That only works if you come up with a good knife fight story :)

01-21-2011, 08:31 PM
Ouch hope you feel better, trying to think of a quote from a Monty Python move?? Oh well get better and get back at it..

01-21-2011, 08:38 PM

Done. When I was out today, everyone was looking at me like " holly crap, I'd hate to see the guy he beat up" it was cool

01-21-2011, 09:03 PM
Oh man! That hadda hurt! :D

I was feelin' a little beat up myself when I got home 'bout an hour ago, but after lookin' at you man.....I'm not feelin' so bad after all! BTW...I'm medicating my pain with dirty Martini's :cool:

Get well soon dude!

01-21-2011, 09:17 PM

01-21-2011, 09:23 PM

Holy Crap :eek::eek:
Glad to see you got help quickly. I echo what Art said, not only do we hope you heal quickly, but that they figure out what is causing the Black out/Seisures..

Let us know if you and Cindi need any help while recovering.

01-22-2011, 09:44 AM
Oh Tim.... only two more hits to the head and that's it. Perhaps life insurance?
It was very scary to look at you that way. Plus, I almost got sick a few times. However, not to worry boys, Tim is in good hands. :Princess::D

Speedy recovery Tim!

01-24-2011, 11:39 AM
Thanks guys.
I must have lost a hell of a lot. More blood than I thought. Because it's been 3-4 days now and I am still getting really dizzy every time I move my head fast. Like stand up or sit up or sit down. It deals like I'm drunk every time.

01-24-2011, 11:43 AM
It's either the lack of blood, or the ten beers your drink with breakfast. Not sure yet which is the cause. :)

Hope you are feeling better man. Let me know if you need anything.


01-24-2011, 11:52 AM
Keep smilin' Tim.

01-24-2011, 01:16 PM
Wow Tim hope you are allright. I have been working on the house all weekend and now just checking things out when I saw this. Get Well soon. Dan
