cycling and accidents
Well things have been quiet here and will probably continue to be for a bit. Luke was involved in a cycling accident on Wednesday night with a rogue mountain biker on the lovely Prairie Path (as seen above.) The mountain biker was coming towards him and then at the last second lost control of his bike and plowed head on into Luke. The mountain biker, while not wearing a helmet, only sustained minor cuts to the head while Luke totalled his bike, ripped his brand new favorite jersey and last but definitely not least, seperated his shoulder (which is really gross, don’t google it, but if you’re interested click here for Luke’s take on the accident.). This is a very painful affair which requires lots of rest, an arm sling and very strong medicine. We have a date with an Orthopaedic doctor/surgeon Monday morning so we’re crossing our fingers his injury doesn’t require surgery. I’ll be back when things calm down and I’m not the only person around the house with two functioning arms, hopefully sooner rather than later!
