    Default Cursed

    Coming from Key Bridge this afternoon into Virginia, crossed into Marriott parking lot and caught an edge on a sidewalk seam and went over the handlebars. Just happened out of nowhere. Thanks to the folks who checked on me as I waited to get picked up by my wife.

    Posting this his from my hospital bed. I have internal bleeding from a bruised kidney and a broken scapula-something. Finally hit 10 on the pain scale and they have me cranked up on morphine. So bummed. I guess my bike is cursed.

    The dark comedy level irony is that my orthopedic doctor just this morning told me that I was 100% healed now. At least I was artful enough to crash on my other side. GAHHHH.

    Signed,

    Man that really sucks, you just healed from your last crash. I'm not superstitious but getting another bike is always a good idea. Get better soon.

    Subby! I am so sorry to hear this. Sending you healing and pain relieving wishes. Take care and rest up. Don't worry about anything, we still have three more months until Freezing Saddles.

    Wow, I'm flabbergasted. Talk about bad luck. I'm so sorry this happened to you. I hope the hospital is able to patch you up quickly and the pain subsides quickly. Let us know if you want visitors or help; a lot of us have extra time on our hands now.
