Crashed Yesterday

Had a hard crash yesterday. I went over my handlebars and landed face first in the dirt. EMS said that my helmet probably saved my life as I hit the ground that hard. I had gone down a hill, went into a dip and lost control of the bike when it hit a root. The trail then turned suddenly and I was going too fast to make it.

I'm pretty much out of commission for now with a concussion. Thankfully, the 2nd CT scan said the bleeding they thought I had with the 1st scan was gone and they sent me home with instructions to come back if things change.

Thankfully; my son was with me and was able to call 911. It took the EMS a few minutes to find us as we weren't sure of our location. Turns out we weren't far from the exit.

I lost two cell phones and my glasses. I vaguely remember taking them off..or I think. DH and my son went back to look and found my Android. They couldn't find my glasses or my dump phone. Hopefully Verizon won't give me a hard time about the phone.

I'm going back to bed. I'm stuck wearing my sunglasses until I can see my doc on Wednesday.
