Former Grateful Dead keyboardist Tom Constanten revealed on Tuesday that he broke his neck when he took a fall on the way into a post office last Wednesday (August 10th)

Constanten, who is now recovering from surgery, posted the following message on his Facebook page, "Fell down and broke my neck last Wednesday. Just like they warned me about as a kid.

"I'd driven up to the Post Office at the top of the hill to mail off a bill, and, knowing there was heavy rain in the forecast, figured it would be better to mail it off inside. I parked the car, and on the way in a bit of uneven pavement tripped me up. I fell, face first, onto the concrete.

"I am so very grateful for the woman who spotted me right away and called 911; for the ambulance crew, who got there so fast; for their professionalism and teamwork; for the uniformly excellent care at Novant Presbyterian Hospital; for the skill of Dr. Healy, the neurosurgeon who performed the procedure that pulled me out of the darkness and into the light, for Dr. Guignard, for the anζsthesiologist, Dr....well, I'm spacing on his name, maybe because he did such a good job. For the surgeon who stitched up my forehead." Read the rest of his post here.
