Surgery is over, now it's time to mend
Thanks for the many good wishes after my bike accident yesterday. I was on my way back from a radio broadcast on Radio Pulpit heading back to the office to conduct a staff meeting. With the problems that my car has been giving me I decided to ride 'Mertyl' my lovely old orange Vespa (who now is no more...) Just near our college is a police depot where cars park on the pavement since there is no parking elsewhere. As I drove down the road a person came shooting off the pavement in his 4x4. He obviously did not see me since he rammed me on the left breaking my leg and sending myself and the Vespa to the ground under the huge wheels of the 4x4.
When I caught my breath I could see that my left leg was broken in two places, and that the bone punctured the skin. Thank God that when the accident happened a past student, Kemp Tube was on his way to the College. He helped to carry me to the pavement and got my bag (in which my Macbook Pro laptop was - it also did not survive the crash! Very sad!)
The guy who hit me loaded me into his car and took me to the local Medicross - not a very comfortable trip with the broken leg!
So, I went into surgery last night where they operated to fix the leg. I hope to be discharged from the highcare today and move into a regular ward tonight.
My neck, back, and arms are fine (just a few scrappes and bruises). My heart is so sore over the dead Vespa and the dead Mac laptop... But, I praise God that I am fine!
