I only waited 30 minutes before I heard my name called.....within minutes the doctor was injecting my finger with lidocaine prior to installing 7 stitches to reattach the end of my finger. The doctor had a great 'bedside manner' and kept me laughing for the entire time. He said this was the first bike related injury which did not involve crashing, or falling off a bike.
So, once again Mr. Jello rules the day.....Richard completed the ride whilst I awaited TLE's arrival with a total elapsed time of just over 6 hours. Up until my accident our average speed had been 12 mph.....I know the Garmin says 10.9, but I had left it running almost 40 minutes after the accident before I shut it down. I was back home by 1:30 with an item still unchecked on my 'bucket list'......it will be done.....you know it will!
I'll have the stitches removed in one week, but for now typing on a keyboard is going to be interesting when one of my fingers is 3 times bigger than usual. Fortunately there is little, or not pain, so no pain killers have been necessary.
Around 6:30 pm we walked over to Lake Tahoe Pizza with Richard and Rhonda for dinner.....it was a great way to end a somewhat disappointing day!
Thanks for stopping by!
