Default I broke myself.







I'm in ER waiting to learn the results of x-rays. I'm pretty sure the left humorous is broken. Could be some cracked ribs or not. It's all my fault. I was trying to get 5 miles in this morning on my ElliptiGO and crashed hard at the bottom of my driveway on the wet road. So much for riding every day in May. I called my son so he came from work in Boulder to bring me to the ER. Thank goodness for Vicodin. Pain down to a 4 from an 8.

That's bad news, Patty! Here's hoping for a quick recovery. Surprised that you were able to post these pic's.

Ouch! Sorry to hear that! My wife just got over a fracture of the greater tuberosity in her left shoulder. Shoulder/upper arm injuries are no fun!

YIKES! Did you flip it or crash into something? I hope the xrays show minimal damage!

Broke the head of the humerous off the shaft and a piece of the ball broke off, too. Surgery with plates and screws tomorrow, most likely.

Oh my, that sounds serious!

Hope the surgery goes well tomorrow.

I'm surprised they are not recommending a hip replacement.
