    wow, Finally home:- Hospitals not my most favourite.

    A huge thanks to all who helped, just awesome

    When the bike initiated divorce proceedings by throwing me off, my initial though was "this is gonna hurt", i can tell you i was not wrong.
    I was battered and bruised from down low to shoulder height. Helmet never smacked the ground. After a few x-rays DR was not convinced he had found all injuries and sent me off for full scan. No further injuries where found, I had dislocated wrist with fractures, broken ring finger, dislocated shoulder with fractures and some cool blue colours all over.
    After three surgeries I am the owner of a new shoulder and a couple steel plates in my wrist. At least i did not have to deal with any road rash, wear the kit people..... If i look at what my clothes look like, i would have been very sore, i cannot imagine being in more pain than i was, so it would have been rough and i would most probably still be in hospital.

    I am now home, with mostly the shoulder giving me the most grief , booked off for six weeks.

    I cannot thank all who helped me enough. My wife got to me, My bike got home, all personal effects looked after :- Thank you

    So very happy that was not worse and that it is manageable. Good time to try out new pain control substances, Glenmorangie or some such stuff.

    trust that your road to recovery is an easy one.

    Really great news Shjakadi. Glad to hear that you are on the mend and that the injuries were not more extensive. Rest up and take it easy for the next few weeks.

    As for the ATGATT......you only appreciate it when you NEED it. Glad it saved your skin


    Don't take life too seriously....nobody gets out alive!!!
