update

So some of you may know, some may not. I was in a bike/SUV accident on Tuesday. I was riding home from work and went through the windshield of an SUV. I had to have thirty one stitches in my arm, and what looks like twenty three on my leg. I had to have emergency surgery Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. I am doing pretty good all things considered.I am in the need of a wheelchair, so if you have one, or knows someone who has one....can I borrow it? I probably will need it for about a month or two.


**********WARNING GRAPHIC PICTURES**********



This is my arm. Some of the glass was already pulled out. Jenn took the pictures.









This is an x-ray of my knee.



Sorry for this last picture, I took it with my cell phone. It is a shitty picture, but I will replace it with a better one when I can.






stay safe out there


til next time

Man, I hope you are feeling better. I think about something like that happening to me every time I leave the house.

m.e. davis, There were witnesses, I'm doing better, I'm not sure what is going to happen.



austinbikeblog, I feel like this every time that I leave the house too. That is why I planned my work route all on back roads. It sucks that this happened, but I am alive and I still have my job. Both of those things make me happy.

Dude... glad you are doing better. And a new job is awesome.. even better that its with apple.

Did you ever find a wheelchair? Maybe we can put the word on the street on EA.

Glad you're in one piece, more or less. Hope they're giving you those good pain meds.

Damn, all I got from my windshield was a few cuts on my back. That's gnarly. Your scars are gonna look AWESOME!
