HCB's Journal, 13 August 2012

Spent the evening in Urgent Care with my husband. He crashed on his bicycle getting a laceration above his eye, scraped knees, a bruised rib, and road rash on his face! He got eight stitches above his eye!

I took him right to the doctor when I arrived home from work at 7:45pm so my dinner plan could not happen. I think I did OK though - got a small Subway turkey sandwich which is one that I already knew the calorie count and could fit in to my food plan. Not my favorite way to round out the day, but it was 10:30pm and we both were quite hungry.

Oh, my...so glad he wasn't hurt any worse. I think you did fantastic! Tell hubby to take it easy and recover soon!

Wow, what an evening. I hope he heals up quickly. I hope he's taking a little something for the pain; that's going to hurt for a while. My partner's son-in-law hit a deer zooming down Mt. Diablo on his bike; major oweys! I'll be thinking about you both.

Good grief! Sorry to hear about your honey! Hope all is well. Since he hit his head, keep a close eye on him tonight.

Fortunately - he always wears his helmet! Doctor said he didn't think he got a concussion but I WILL be watching him.

Never mind the dinner - at least hubby is (reasonably) okay. :)

So sorry your spouse got a little "bunged up" on his bike. Lots of tender wife kisses on his roacd rash might be just what the doctor orders. Those events are so streffful and you did a great job in choosing the Subway turkey sandwich. Good Girl! Take care on your bike too - okay? Much Fat Secret Love!

Thanks all - he seems better today. I "made" him stay home from work - silly man wanted to go to work! Doctor said rest and ibuprophen was what would best work right now.

Holey Moley! Did he get charged up watching the Olympics? Sounds like he took a heck of a fall. I'm glad he's OK. How's the bike?

Ah! what a mess. Hope he gets healed up quick.

Oh my. Hope he is doing better this morning. Probably sore all over I am sure. Sometimes we just have to make do food wise. Sounds like you made a good choice.

So glad he wasn't seriously hurt. Men are funny that way, when they have a cold they act like they are dieing but when they should take it easy they don't.

Well, we have a number of beautiful trails all over the Twin Cities and he took one of the usual trails. Apparently they were re-asphalting a section and "detoured" the trail off onto grass and gravel - he was only going about 10mph but hidden by taller grass was a concrete block surrounding a manhole cover adjacent to a gulley! Wham, he hit the concrete edge and was thrown off the bike! After the injury, he rode five miles back to the trailhead, while bleeding, to get his truck!

Sounds like a nightmare! But I'm glad it wasn't worse. You handled the situation very well, by the sounds of it.
