Bicycles and Pavement Don't Mix !
Yesterday, we got a call that our youngest(28)had biffed it. He was on his 10-speed and 2 or 3 blocks from home, when the front tire came off. Jay said, "I knew I was going down and that it was going to hurt!". It did.
He broke his nose, had 5 stitches, the right side of his face is all scarred up, his right shoulder matches his face, both wrists, both knees, bump on his forehead and parts of the left side of his face.
He was lucky that an officer in an unmarked car saw it and called 911. The ambulance came, but he denied them because he had JUST canceled his insurance last week. The officer called Brie and she picked him up and took him to the hospital. His brother-in-law found out and went to the hospital to give him a blessing...thank you Dan!!! He's swollen, definitely going to bruise and has gauze stuffed up his nose with bandages and gauze all over his body. The paramedics loaded his bike into the car and the blood was hosed off the sidewalk. (He drug himself to the grass because of the mess he was making on the sidewalk!)
With this said...he finished packing the UHaul and drove all night to CA. where they will be living now.
He said this morning, he was feeling the pain...but promised to rest tonight (after unloading the truck).
This is why I'm turning gray!
Of course, my pictures won't download to the computer, so hopefully they will at another time.
