bike crash. too fast around a corner. this is after the er. i won't show the before. the right hand looks good, just soft tissue damage. i can't write or open jars. missing the use of that wonderful opposable thumb. i am learning new ways of doing things, but can't drive yet. grateful, so grateful to be able to walk, and no head injury. yeah for helmets, the kindness of strangers (who scooped me up and rushed me to the er), and pain meds. road rash is not for sissies, and i feel like a big one. bleahhh.
