13.3.13

Saturday March 2nd 2013. 33rd St and MLK. Oakland, Ca.

 i only have whats been told to me.  some pieces to puzzle back together.

1.  i was going to go shoot photos at a friends shop.
2.  being on MLK doesnt support the above claim, unless i was headed somewhere else first.  so no idea what so ever where i was going.
3.  i only remember waking up sunday at highland hospital.

list of issues.

zero weight bearing on all four limbs. wheel chair bound for 2-3 months.

left knee, torn acl, stretched all other ligaments.  those ligaments pulled pieces of bone off of the bone when stretched. considered a sort of fracture.

right knee.  broken shin bone right at joint. doc said looks like someone pulled the cap off and put it right back on. surgery optional. no cast given, just braces.

left arm.  elbow smashed, see below x-ray.  must have skidded on elbow because skin was worn down to the bone. immediate surgery.  no cast just guaze and tape over roguhly 10-12 stitches.   wrist sprained, hurts wose than anything else. no brace or wrist guard given

right wrist. broken in a few places. surgery performed and fixed has two piece splint. assuming stitches under splint from said surgery.  see surgery photos below.

gouge/gorge in head. required 16 staples and 12 stitches.  one sq in. piece of skin said to possibly die and produce no hair and bad scaring.

one broken rib. cased in muscle and meat, no way to fix.

one partially collapsed lung.  air seen on lung in imagery.  fixed with inhale tool given.

road rash, right hand, top of hand. one hole required 3 stitches, misc on left ankle area.

bruises everywhere as you can see below.

Holy shit!
Nice to see you're still here after that big one...got overlooked by a cager?
Don't know you personally, but every rider down is a shitty thing...so hope your condition's improving.

The pics of your head and helmet tell me getting a Simpson Bandit isn't the worst idea I had.
Good your getting better, man.
