Hi to everyone well on sept 17th at about 2:30 in the afternoon. i jumped on big red (XRL) to go the post office. about mile from my house on a quiet residential street i got t-boned. i don't rememeber getting hit. a lady (she was very sorry btw) that in her words says she never saw me. apparently me and the bike slid down the road (the policeman says) 138ft. i don't rememeber getting hit or sliding. what stopped me was a car coming the opposite direction. i slid into that car which stopped my forward progress. that's pretty scarey the cop said he thought he was gonna find me with a car parked on top of me. i just got home yesterday from 13 days in the hospital, and 15 days in a rehab center. wild thing is i have not had any surgery yet. my doctor says the foot is too swollen to operate yet. i have a total of 8 broken bones in my right foot. the doctor says he's not even worried about the broken bones. he said he'll fuse them if he has too. an almost complete degloving of the foot. (degloving is where, this is how i'm describing it so it's not gonna be in medical terms) the skin separates from the internal tissue of the foot. needless to say it hurt likes A son of a .... you know what. and still does. the doc. says it will prob take the better part of a year to heal good enough walk and thee foot may never be the same. but i feel very blessed to be alive. i have min. road rash on my hands and both calves. thanks to a large and thick back pack. i must have slid on the back pack.
