Why was this kind and very concerned face staring intently at me at 8am on Saturday morning?
Maybe because I was lying like this?
I did it again.
Decided it was time to break something.
you are all correct
I did it by coming off this
at a bit of speed.
at Kirra Beach Surf Club
I took a huge stack
right in front of a bunch of lifesavers about to be tested on their medical rescue skills
by Kaye the kind faced rescue assessor
who’s face is at the top of this post.
Kaye, and the 20 guys who watched my head (inside my helmet)
hit the concrete at 20k an hour,
held me down until this came.
despite my best efforts to
and get out of there!
I spose it’s 6 months and 1 week since my last ride in an ambulance.
Till I got to the John Flynn Hospital
where they XRayed my neck
that it magnificently
did NOT break.
Neck – I’m proud of you.
According to the witnesses
(I think they have a touch of the dramatics)
I’d have cracked my skull
well and truly OPEN.
I know there was a bloody loud bang when it hit the deck
there was even a pretty loud crunch inside my head when it landed.
I can’t really complain about
(There’s a Tshirt on me – despite the photo looking slightly nudish).
So now I’m
getting around like this
but very comfy and easy to pull on with one hand.
I think the brand of my helmet
speaks for you all!
Sensible Arnie was in my bike basket,
wearing a harness and a very thick coat
he was fine
the basket did not hit the cement
and Arnie stayed put.
