Checking In

Thought I’d check-in since I’ve checked out of social media for a while. A couple of weeks ago hubby went down on his motorcycle trying to avoid an accident with a vehicle that pulled out in front of him. I was at work and hubby called me on a borrowed cell phone. He left a voice mail telling me he went down. WHAT! Then I get a call from the local police telling me that he is being transported by ambulance to the hospital, but he was talking. WHAT! The officer said they rolled his bike into a parking lot, but didn’t know if it was drive-able. I left work immediately.

Made it to the Emergency Room, but hubby wasn’t registered yet so I had to wait until a nurse officially checked him in. Finally, I was let in to see him. Sat with hubby while the doctor and nursed checked him out, gave him pain meds, and sent him off for an x-ray. Turns out hubs suffered a broken collar bone on the right side, as well as some scrapes, and they expect bruising with soreness. Not much can be done for a broken collar bone so ER put him in a sling and sent us home. Hubby will be following up in a couple of weeks with an orthopedic surgeon to see how he is healing.

Our son and daughter-in-law drove out to see what they could do to help. I drove him over to the motorcycle to see if he could ride it home. Looking over the bike it is missing a turn signal and scratched up on that same side. Fork looked okay. He was able to get it home and parked it in the garage. So grateful for his help!

Today I took my motorcycle out for the first time in a while. Just doing errands. I’ve missed riding, but miss my riding partner even more.

Wishing y’all safe riding. God Speed.
