My Husband Was In A Bicycle Accident - He'll Be Ok I've seen better days (just like Belle)

I called Jeff's aunt and uncle, who both came over to be with the (sleeping of course) kids. Jeff was in radiology when I arrived at the ER. He has a fractured (broken) R collarbone, scapula (the "wing" bone that juts out from your back when you stick your elbow way out behind yourself), and 3rd rib under his armpit. His whole top 1/3 is well Xrayed and CT scanned. His bike helmet has seen better days - a chunk out on the back and the foam is cracked in numerous place. Thank God he wears it religiously anytime he's on the bicycle. Other than the 3 fractures he has some bumps and bruises. Luckily no road rash. He must have just hit and hit hard, then stopped - or perhaps slid in mud rather than concrete/asphalt. Apparently before I got there he left quite a muddy mess in radiology.
We got home around 3am. He's sore today, but not bad when just sitting still. He's already back at his computer and must have Skyped work to show them the lovely bruise over his collarbone. Now he's watching work presentations in real time online. I'm glad it's not Skype (or it's muted on our end if it is.) William is making all sorts of toddler playing noises which might be a bit distracting.
We're going to have a taking-it-easy kind of weekend. Or, more likely, Jeff will take it easy at home and I'll be looking for things to do with the kids to get them away from Daddy while he recuperates. He sees an orthopedic doctor on Wednesday who the ER doc thinks will just give further instructions on how long to use the arm sling and when to start moving and stretching the arm to prevent "frozen shoulder" from dis-use.

Having had a bike accident myself, I can feel for him. I did have some pretty nasty road rash but only one broken bone.

My Gallery I scrap with Photoshop CS6, but can help with older versions: PS7, CS2 & CS4.

Continuing to hold good thoughts for him. (and for you!)
Hm, online Kohl's? That could be dangerous on many levels... As long as they will let me return anything "locally" that he doesn't like or that doesn't fit, I love that idea! Thanks Gayle.

Now that's a darned shame:( Good for you on encouraging that doctor to do a better job with patient education.
Jeff has the advantage that I am a PA, so have my own knowledge base and ideas on what to ask of the specialist when we see him Wednesday.
