if i'm lucky. presently i am praying and ODing on calcium. the doc did a good job on my collarbone, but the damn steel plate will have to come out in a year. particularly since i will be taking up MTBing at some point (and cyclocross soon), and more endos are in the works (but hopefully not too many more). otherwise, i am doing well: i won't be able to put weight on the arm till at least 6 weeks, but i can write with it. i am almost off the painkillers: 2 a day as opposed to 7-8 after the op. the incision should heal within a copule of weeks.

(ladies, i apologise for the crudity...) the photo below is me, in the van, about to go to the hospital. the finger is for the guy who crashed, heh heh. a very small, evil part of me wishes i had hit him harder. the rest of me says, no hard feelings, these things happen, and hope you're OK

....I know how you feel. That totally sucks that someone else's incompentence, inexperience, whatever, cause you all this pain and hassle. But that's racing, right?

6 weeks is better than 4 months!

Six weeks--I could deal with that.Leisure

It's good to see you're getting back soon. Injury sucks!

the thing is that i MIGHT be able to ride in 6 weeks. there's no guarantee that i'll have healed sufficiently :\
i am already going crazy. let's hope i manage not to pull an Ullrich.
