The Injury List

Lance Armstrong is truly the superhero of cycling.  Lance was in a pile up in Spain during a race on Monday and broke his collarbone in several pieces. He is scheduled for surgery on Wednesday where he will have a metal plate inserted to stabilize the bone. He plans to take about 72 hours off to rest and then back to his workouts. Although obviously it will take some time to get back up to speed, Armstrong is planning on participating in the Giro d’Italia race May 9 – May 31. That is the second most important race next to the Tour de France which he is also planning on participating in this July. Armstrong’s longtime manager feels the same and that all this is doable. HE feels Lance is in great shape and if anyone can pull it off and make it happen, it is Lance Armstrong. Right now everyone is optimistic and just hoping the surgery goes well and Lance makes a speedy recovery.

Another injury to talk about is poor Matt Lauer who ended up with a separated shoulder after slamming on his bicycle brakes to avoid hitting a deer this weekend. Matt had surgery on Tuesday and hopes to be back on the “Today Show” towards the end of the week. Matt could have held off on the surgery to see if his shoulder would heal on its own but since Matt is an avid golfer he didn’t want to risk any pain with his golf swing. His doctors agreed and they expect Matt to make a full recovery.

This just in…. Katy Perry and Josh Groban are not, I repeat not dating according to Grobans rep. The two are definitely friends and have been hanging out but that is the extent of it. Katy is currently on tour and Josh did attend her show in LA in February but he is busy working on his own career.  They would have made quite the interesting couple though don’t you think?

And last but not least, the Octomom has fired her free nurses from the agency, Angels in Waiting. Well that didn’t take long. You can find out all the details on the Dr. Phil show Wednesday and Thursday when he will be speaking to all involved.  Nadya says she just felt that instead of helping her with the babies, she felt the Angels in Waiting nurses were waiting for her to make a mistake.  Nadya didn’t even feel comfortable in her own home or with her babies. She has gone back to her original plan, with her own nannies, which are helping her care for the babies and are being paid by Nadya. Hmmm….I think it is going to get pretty ugly on the Dr. Phil show if you ask me. I can’t wait to tune into the drama.
