No mocking my typing responsibilities while in an arm brace. Please, no comments on spelling or punctuation and if I dont feel like using SHIFT to make caps, well, so be it. Here is a collection of our faithful protagonist in a neck brace.
If you would like to see the route here it is;
It looks like I hit the pavement around the nineteen minute mark, and was stabilized, and on the road by thirty-two. Hooray for djbrokenboy and his crew for keeping an eye out, getting on their phones, and for holding my bike until we were able to come and get it.
I want to give a shout-out not only to the OSU team that got me stable in the trauma unit, and the EMTs that got me there, but also to the Columbus effort to make bike routes important. If I had just been some isolated bicyclist on a random path, I have no idea how long it would have taken me to get picked up and to trauma.
Big shout out to Beth for getting to me in the hospital despite sketchy information, the EMT for telling me to shut up and wear a helmet when I asked to not go to a hospital, my mom for all her concern, and the scores of friends who voiced their support.
Basically, I was riding, my thoughts became unmoored and started floating around in disarray, and all of a sudden I'm on my back after my first seizure in three years. How time flies and things stay the same. Anyway, I'm doing well today. I got most of the dirt washed off me finally. Still can't cook as my good hand is tied up in the brace.
