Darn, I had episode #2 all typed out, went to post it and it disappeared!!!
Back to the drawing board!
I'm so grateful that I was riding with JIm and Bill, if I had been alone, it would have been curtains for the Hag. The official toll:
Right Side: Completely collapsed lung, 5 ribs broken, some ribs flailed under my collar bone (shattered, not attached. It sounds like cellophane when I breathe or move and you can see me breathe in my neck and collar bone) Right kidney lacerated. Right shoulder bruised (they were amazed it wasn't broken or dislocated.)
Left Side: Partially collapsed lung, pneumothorax, 1 rib broken.
Front: cracked sternum facial bruising
Back: C1 and C2 (cervical spines) are cracked. I'm darn lucky. Transverse process on one of my spines is broken off (near my shoulder?)
Inside: Adrenal gland is bruised.
You can see that Big didn't just casually toss me off. He MEANT IT. Nobody bruises an adrenal gland...it's way too far inside you.
Posting now before I have to type this again. Just reading it give me chills.
