Well, let’s just say it was going great until this afternoon when I got hit by an suv and taken by ambulance to the ER. Everything is okay so far. I’ve had all the workup done, xrays, catscan, bloodwork, etc., and so far it just seems that I have a pretty twisted up ankle and road rash on my elbow. My bike can’t say the same. The tires are mangled, but I’m hoping that the body is still intact. As the gentleman came running out to see if I was okay it was basically, “ow my ankle, oh no my bike, ow my ankle, oh no my bike”. That is how much I love that bike. PeeWee Herman has nothing on me.
As I said before, everything seems to be okay, I need to make an appointment with a specialist about my ankle. I’m mostly being paranoid about problems that might arise later, or how you hear these horror stories about people that were fine and happy and then get into a car accident and then bam, chronic pain disorder, and even writing that I feel a bit like Bill Murray from “What About Bob?” perhaps I should concentrate on the positive and know that at least I am pretty safe from contracting Tourette Syndrome. I am thankful that I am safe and realize I could have had a much different outcome. I’m still kind of shaken and emotional. Matt is taking great care and my parents and Matt’s parents were there for me at the hospital.
Sorry for the lack of creative projects and images in this post. If I could ask you a favor, please just keep me in your thoughts and/or prayers that everything is okay, and for a speedy recovery. I’m very grateful for any positive thoughts sent my way. Thank you.
