I know this is a weird thing to post the day of the accident, but I'm at home getting food in my stomach for the first time in 10 hours, so I figured what the hell. I was riding my bike today to my personal trainer and I was hit by a car driving rather recklessly. A picture for proof (fun?, chicks dig scars, right?).
I'm alright so far. Follow-up regarding possible spinal injury later on. I broke my cheek bone. Lacerations everywhere and I broke my nose twice and I broke my sinuses (that's what they said, no clue what that means). I believe I sustained a concussion as well. The police arrived a little too fast, so I think I blacked out.
I just can't believe that happened today. It happened quickly and I still can't believe it happened. Literally 2 hours earlier we were signing the papers to close on our house (yeah, the house went through). Next thing you know I'm in an ambulance on the way to the hospital. Life is messed up and weird.
Funny enough, this was the chain of my thinking as I lay on the ground.
My first thought was "just lay here, this could be really bad and my neck is really in pain as is my head.."
My second thought was "I can't believe that guy just hit me".
My third thought was "I think he sped up".
My fourth thought was "Call my wife."
My fifth thought was "I think I deserve a PS3 out of this."
No idea why the fifth. Maybe that's when the shock kicked in.
