T and another friend, K, participate in a 100 mile bike race in our area every summer. They started at 7 AM all bright eyed and ready for the day. Going down a steep hill (well steep for me on a bike!!) and T hit some gravel on the side of the road, slid into a pothole. He was thrown up over his handle bars, and landed on his head in the ditch. Helmet cracked, having trouble breathing, nose bleeding. He was sent by ambulance to the hospital.
A CT scan and several xrays later, we learn he has a small fracture in his neck, and some compressed discs in his spine. Some chipped teeth, stitches on his nose, and dirt in his hair. A transfer to another hospital with a neurosurgeon an overnight stay, more xrays.
He is going to be ok. Sigh of relief. Needs to wear a brace for 3 months. BUT oh how different it couldve been.
Makes you stop and think, and hug those you love a little tighter! You never know what the day will hold!
