I write this post very very depressed and pissed at the situation. Tomorrow is the tri and I won’t be participating. Why? Oh I had a shitty week.
Lets start with last Sunday. Got into another accident in the parking lot of Albertsons. My poor poor car. Grrrrrr. Still figuring out that issue. Fast forward a couple days to Tuesday.. I take off on my bike to see if my bike will fit into my mothers car. Get a couple miles away from my parents house and suddenly wake up in an ambulance. Turns out that my bike isn’t meant for think dirt. The wheel got caught and I went down. Broke my brand spanking new helmet. *sighs* All within race week. Soooooooo I won’t be doing either the tri or marathon. After all that hard work. I’m more than a little pissed at the situation. At least we get to still go down to San Fran. Just won’t be racing.
I was taken to the ER after the accident. I’ve got a type 3 AC separation in my shoulder. I can’t lift my right arm much but the hand and lower arm (as long as I don’t use my shoulder) are fully functional. I have a horrible bruise on my hip and a nice ugly mark on my shoulder. I have had a lot of help from boyfriend and my family. I can’t put my hair up without some help. I can drive just fine. I’m just exhausted a lot now.
I’ll find out on Monday if I need surgery on it. I’m hoping I will only need PT. I don’t want surgery.
Is this the end of the road for me? Heck no. I’ll be back. 🙂 At least I’m not crippled. It’s just my shoulder. Legs and knees are still in tact and fully functional!
