Hang in there, this will pass!
Thanks, Rudy & Mary! Just some aches and pains...a temporary setback. Luckily nothing broken or sprained. :-)
Ugh! That doesn't sound like fun. I'm trying to be extra careful these days so I don't do something horrible and have to contemplate going to the doctor or the ER. I hope everything heals quickly!
Those deep muscle bruises can take a surprisingly long time to heal. Hope your pain goes away quickly.
Thank you, Kris & Gail! :-)
I haven't updated in a while...hope your a healing okay. How did you get the bruised ribs?
Hi Amy! A few weeks ago at Camp Elim -- I stepped on a log, it rolled, and I went down hard (ribs on log). I would say it's 95% better now -- but still hurts if I sneeze. ;-)
How did you wipe out on the bike? Endo, sideways, front wheel caught on something? Yeah, being tight and scared is the knell of deathlike experiences. I was taught, mostly unsuccessfully, to keep my butt back and low, relax my arms and shoulders so they can micro adjust and keep a decent speed so you dont stall out on every little wrinkle...but accidents happen. My bane has been deer in the headlights endo where i watch the world go round and break another clavicle yet again. Have to chalk those up to a lack of brain function though.
Rudy, I'm not entirely sure what happened, but I didn't go over the handlebars. I think I lost momentum, couldn't unclip fast enough, and just keeled over and fell hard on the rocks. DOH! The good news is -- I realized today that my leg doesn't hurt at all anymore -- yay. :-D
