I’ve had better days but I’m alright, thanks. Have wounds on left hip and left elbow that are taking a while to sort themselves out, plus a sore rib. The rest is rapidly mending except for the shoulder.
A piece of bone split off the top of the humerus. After various scans they’ve decided I need some metalwork to hold that in place. Otherwise healing will take longer and I’ll end up with a significantly reduced range of shoulder movement – not a thrilling prospect. So I’m going into hospital today for an operation tomorrow.
I wondered about the time from injury to operation (nearly a week), but the surgeon told me they can operate up to three weeks after this injury. No doubt earlier remains better.
Still haven’t had a chance to study the bicycle. Seems pointless to rush that since I won’t be riding it soon. Will wait until I have two functional hands if not arms.
