Quick injury story for those interested and asking:
i got my tire caught in the muni tracks. i was going rather fast downhill (sanchez to 17th) and made a left turn too widely. i’ve made the turn a hundred times but i was drunk so over-confident that my angles would work out… they didn’t. spent a day on the couch feeling like shit and the next day a good friend drove me around to dr appointments all day for x-rays, ct scans, etc. gist is that i have a fracture in my elbow (doesn’t really hurt that much and i have decent range of motion, but i can’t really rotate my arm comfortably like one has to to make your hand flat on a keyboard) and apparently a few small fractures in my face (eye/temple area, makes it hard to chew, squint, laugh, that sort of stuff and swelly, though that’s gone down a lot, also makes my snot bloody).
i’m “prescribed” large doses of advil for the pain and the swelling (the stuff works pretty well when you take way more than the “maximum” dose), wearing a sling as much as possible, some antibiotics to keep the bleedy sinus parts from getting infected (to be taken every 6 hours, which means i get to wake up at 6am every day for at least long enough to down a pill), but not really a lot else. once i figure out how to strip any personal info out of them, i’ll upload my x-rays and ct scans and give out a link for anybody into that sort of stuff.
oh, and a picture of my swolleny face
