Life can turn on a dime. You do not want to be on your way to see your husband, and walk under a giant red TRAUMA sign in the ER, and you do not want to walk in and see the above. It's just scary.
Seriously, though, he's fine. And he was fine when he was in this getup. They put it on as a precaution. He was even pretty fine when he first got hit. He made sure he called the department secretary FIRST to tell her to please let his class know he wasn't going to make it. THEN he called me to let me know he'd been hit by a car. And, he felt good enough to be a complete tourist in the ambulance and take pictures of the interior with his cell phone.They released him at 3:00. We came home and grabbed a quick bite, since we hadn't eaten since breakfast, then we had to go downtown to get his bike. He'd gotten hit right in front of the Port City Java on the corner of Grace and Front, and they were nice enough to hold his bike for us until we could get back and pick it up. It was pretty banged up. We took it on in to Two Wheeler Dealer for repairs.
