Want a laugh!

I'm laying there, lung gurgling a little they were hoping the heli got there before it collapsed

I'm in shorts, sneakers, t shirt.

Hear a girl EMT say I'm going to cut your shorts off now...

All I could think was "I hope I'm not shrunk-up" I tried with all my might to will myself into shape.

Naw.

NOW LAUGH!!!

Glad you’re on the mend.
Kinesiology tape can help stabilize your ribs while they heal.
I used it a lot after my heart bypass surgery when I tore up my sternum going back to work.

Wish you all the best going forward

Sorry to hear of your misfortune but glad you're still here among us. You probably wouldn't have had time to stop no matter how good the brakes were. The body will heal and the bike can hopefully be repaired. Bon courage mon vieux, get well soon !

When my buddy looked over for a sec and then hit the back of the box van that hard stopped in front of him while slowing for the red light, the emt's cut off his vest and all of his clothes. He didn't make it.
