phlux bboard - GET WELL, CLINT!

Home : Message Boards : PHLUX Misc. : GET WELL, CLINT!

In case anyone doesn't know, Clint has broken his femur bone. He was sent to Regions Hospital in St. Paul, MN for an emergency operation.

He is currently recovering. Check the news page for more info.

I personally want to say that I wish him the best and fastest recovery so we can get home and be with our friends and family. Get well soon Clint! We love you, man!

(Anybody that wants to let Clint know you're thinking of him may write a note to him here.)

Feel better, Clint!
Let me know if there's some books you'd like while you are laid up.
By the way, Zach broke his leg falling out of a tree. He was like 7 or so. All I remember is that he had to pee in a Mason jar!
Let's see if this makes the post ;)

Hey Clint, Mr. Titanium! How are you doing out there in the big city of St. Paul? I hope this little mishap doesn't color your memories of your vacation Out West, and I hope you get feeling a lot better really soon! Everybody around here is really thinking that you're some big hero because I've been telling them that you broke your leg while avoiding a barefoot infant waterskiier. Well, no, I really haven't, but I guess it sounds pretty good... Anyway, can't wait to see you back at home in Maine! Love you! Molly Mae
p.s. I was really bummed that you don't have a cast - I was looking forward to decorating it! :)

Hope you feel better soon, Clint! Keep smiling. :)

Much love,

PS: Latricia and Patricia send their love, too...(they don't check their e-mail as quite as often as I

Dear Clint, My flight was wonderful. We flew right over the top of the Tetons!!! I wanted to jump out and dive into the lake just behind the Grand Teton. It was breathtaking. Xach picked me up at the airport and I spent the night in Portland.
I arrived home about 4 p.m. Wednesday expecting that you, Cody, and Piper would be coming along the next day or so. I was worried when Molly met me at the door with the news of your broken leg accident, surgery, and delayed departure. I'm thankful it happened where you were able to get excellent care. I hope that the trip home goes well for you. Be sure that you stop often along the way to exercise that leg. It won't be to hard a trip from St. Paul. Consider all of the miles that you've already covered on this road trip.
Just think of all of the relatives, friends of the family, and other fine people that you got to know because of the extra time you had to spend there. You are so lucky to come from a very large, loving family. We are all thinking of you and praying for a speedy recovery. I know some of them have called to wish you well themselves.
I'm sure you'll have an easy ride back home with Piper and Cody chauffering you.
The problem will be trying to negotiate the stairs to your apartment. We'll have to think about that one.
Keep in touch on the trip. I love you.

Hey, Clint this is Latricia. I hope you get well soon. Let me know if there is anything I can get you. Take care man.
Love me!

Yo Clint,

This could be the first step in replacing all your bones with unbreakable metal, and then you could get razor-sharp retractable claws and super healing ability...then you can go fight crime with a team of superheroes under the tutelage of Professor Xavier!!

Hope you feel up for fighting crime soon, man. Seeya when you get back!

Hey Clint. I figured I would add to the list of people who are thinking of you and hoping that you're doing okay considering the circumstances. You'll have to recover quickly so you can get back out there and play some music again. I was really looking forward to hearing you at the Pier again. You've already got people calling and inquiring about your well-being, as well as people calling you about upcoming shows. If there is anything you need at all, please don't hesitate to let me know. I'm not sure when to expect you guys home, but if there is anything we can do in the meantime, just let us know. And when you get back, you'll be able to take advantage of three roommates waiting on you hand and foot!

I hope you're feeling better and look forward to seeing you soon. Again, if there's anything you or Piper or Cody need - just let me know.

Thinking of you...
Get well soon!

I think my favorite part so far is "all I remember is he had to pee in a mason jar!"

Clint, Get well soon. Let me know when your ETA in Portland is. Me and the crew gots to come see how you're holdin' up! Its been way too long since we've seen you anyways, let alone now you're a cripple and we gotta feel sorry for you and stuff. If yer not so wacked out on painkillers or whatever, we'll have to have a few beerseses, maybe see if you've got the energy to pluck a few strings! ! Anyhow.....speedy recovery, speedy delivery, Mr. Rogers, and Uncle Ben! Fix yourself soon!

I'm sorry to hear about your injury, and hope you have a quick and easy recovery.

Take care of yourself.

Get plenty of rest.

And drink plenty of beer
-not sure if it'll help, but it will make
the recovery a bit more amusing :)

Hey all, I just wanted to say thanks to all the well-wishers for all the thoughts and sympathies. I'm getting better slowly. I still can't put weight on the leg or move around too fast, but it's only been a month, and being on crutches is sure as hell better than lying in a hospital bed in a drug induced euphoria. Regardless of how wonderful that might sound to those who haven't experienced it, it gets real old real fast. Anyway, I can't wait to start playing shows again, and hopefully I'll see y'all out on the town soon.

PS... At least I didn't break my funky bone!!!
posted by Clint Phipps on Sep 11, 2002 11:43AM

Clint, well, what can I say man. I was there when it happened. I dragged you to shore after the... Well, we'll save the details of the experience - all I can say is that I love you man, and I'm damn glad that that was all that happened, cause it could have been a helluva lot worse.

I hope that your recovery is perfect and quick and painless and that you're back to playing, singing and touring ASAP. Good luck with everything. And me and Stu can't wait to jam!

posted by Cody Phipps on Sep 12, 2002 07:57PM

Those nights in the hospital.... Memorable!

It was somethin' else seeing James and Steve and Cody move so fast to get you out. Or half out, I guess. I'm glad you liked us better than the EMTs!

It was also something waiting for you during surgery. Your doc was the man. I think they fixed you up real good. Thanks to Steve and Carly, we had connections!!

(You're right- it's a good thing it wasn't your funky bone. ;)

This time I'm signed in with the right name. I just want to say that I'm pleased with your recovery so far. Your leg looks soooooo-- much better than the first time I saw it! You are still a little slow at getting around, but that just gives us all a chance to wait for you for a change. Hope to see you again soon.
Love ya. Mom

Clint is well on the road to full recovery!
Today at noon he had surgery to remove the titanium rod in his leg. He'll be fully ready to go in about 2 weeks. We all wish him the best of luck.

Love you.
