I wish! I have had more stitches / broken bones then I can shake a stick at. I ended up with four stitches walking up my stairs. Have a "burn" on my arm from rubbing spray paint off.
Still have a visible scar from a scratch with a bared wire fence, although nothing compares to my leg / hip when they stuffed me with titanium LOL
I'm horriblt accident prone.

So glad you went to the doctor and your injuries are not too severe. Take it easy and get the rest you need. You will be back in the saddle in no time.

Maybe so, but ambulance rides are expensive!

I'm glad you went to the hospital. Internal injuries do not always show with bruises. I had my gall bladder pushed away from my liver when I was kicked a few years back. There was absolutely no pain or bruising, but I was severely bloated in my abdominal area due to having half a liter of blood in my abdomen and bruising to my liver. If the BO hadn't made me go to the hospital, I could have seriously hurt myself even worse. The same goes for you. Take it easy for a while. Your health is priority.

Strength is not defined by physical ability. It is determined by your actions and the compassion of your soul.
