I think the lack of sleep is also affecting me. No comfortable position. Ugh.

Thanks so much for all the well wishes , everyone.



There's a lot of good, usable parts on the scoot, still, so i'm going to strip it when I feel up to it. I can even use the Rostra cruise control on my Jeep!

Wow- super lucky you are!  Sorry about the accident but glad you are OK.
Yep. Seat is good! Bags were pinned, and I had some of my tools in one. Hell, my phone launched across the road, and still works!

OUCH! Looking at that photo above..... :o :yikes:
OK, I'll be the one to ask, how are.... "the guys"?

Get well soon.


Haha, I think my knee did that.

First time I ever got Hydrocodone (Vicodin) in my life was with this broken wrist. Stuff works well..... very well. :-) The dosage I got in various scripts was only 5 mg. but at the hospital, they handed me one that made my head swim a bit. I only ended up taking (I think) 5 of them, one the day after the break and a few the 2nd day after surgery. Only one time I took any during the day, the rest were at night and really did help with sleep.

I have no idea what your personal situation or beliefs are, and I am NOT asking, but if acceptable to, and for you, the 'heavier' drugs do seem to work well, especially at night when a little throbbing can become a big pounding (Easy Boys!).

Are you in a cast? Any surgery for the scapula?

Brian

Hey guy! I'm thinking a little better today. The concussion knocked a little sense out of me. OK, this happened on Monday, April 30th. I didn't think to put that in the original post.

I think that huge dent in the rear of the tank was caused by my knee, because, "the fellas" are fine. LOL

I brought my LAAM seat into the house, and yes, my bags were pinned. Right bag still came off though. It broke the passenger peg bracket in the process.

I did my first round of physical therapy yesterday, and I'm actually using my left arm to lift a soday, or hold a fork every now and then. Can't support any weight with it yet.

No cast! Can You believe that?! I wore a sling for a few days, but have shed it. The physical therapy place is only working on my knee for now, but the scapula, isn't fractured very severely. I'm using my left arm very gingerly.

I updated the original post to be a little more informative.

Excellent! That sounds like a much better prognosis than mine. Then again, I may be being overly pessimistic. My suggestion would be to be kind to that bone for a while and hopefully you will get an X-ray that shows a solid, nice knit- line down the fracture.

Also glad you saw it coming and did what you could to avoid or minimize the collision. While it is always the person who turn left in front of a straight- line traveler's fault, the person being cut- off can often do a lot to avoid or minimize damage from accidents. Put another way, the 'innocent' party is not free from participating.

Just because you may have a green light, it is not a force- field that will keep everyone away from you. So my compliments on reacting as you did and for simply paying attention; it sounds like more speed may well have caused you far greater injuries.... or worse. :-(

I think the antilocks on my scoot really helped me bleed off speed. I'm sure that helped minimize my injuries. A closing speed of 60MPH or so, and I'd have definitely been playing a harp now.

I'm optimistic about the shoulder. It hurts, but is fairly mobile. I'm moving as much as I can stand.

Wow! Remember: Whatever doesn't kill you ... provides you a good story to tell  :thumbs:

Now, was your attacker a texter, an oldster, a teen ... or somehow an unavoidable accident?  ???

Hey ... and, maybe too soon to even think about, but look at this in the For Sale section: http://www.zggtr.org/index.php?topic=23409.0

The report doesn't say anything about inattentive driving, but the other guy, (dob 1974) admitted to not seeing me. Now my connie was lit up like a ufo, (see pic) and my riding jacket could be seen from the moon. So I'm not totally buying that he wasn't texting or something, but it ain't in the report.
