Injury Update

Nine days after I dumped my bike and I'm not exactly impressed with my progress. As a matter of fact, today had a couple of really painful moments for no particular reason. The kind that had me drop 1000mg of Tylenol.

I took a couple of pictures, but it's hard to see the bruising I still have. The amazing part of the bruise is that it bruised on BOTH sides of my arm. Currently the most daily pain I have is putting my socks on. I can't explain it, but it is just brutal. The pain shoots all the way to my shoulder.

The other thing that caused excruciating pain was when Carson got on the Trail-a-Bike yesterday to go to school before I was ready and it shifted left. I had to hold it up or I would have dumped the bike with him on it. It's been a long time since I have come that close to crying. My arm throbbed until about noon and that might be part of my issue today. Whatever the case, this sucks and I want to go for a REAL ride, not just commuting/errand miles. Can't you just sense how crabby I am?

This is the side I landed on. Tough to see the big brown bruise through all my man-fur.

This is the back side. A couple days ago it had all the colors of the rainbow.

I shall return...soon.

I know how you feel. I crashed about 2 months ago and banged my knee up really bad. Hope you heal quickly.
