Early morning. Usual wakeup time.
But, shoulder and back pain are my alarm and the reason for my fitful sleep overnight.
Yesterday afternoon, while getting market supplies for a favorite home dinner, a concentration lapse resulted in a sudden over-the-handlebar bike mishap.
Yes – pride wounded. Hoping my surgically repaired clavicle is still intact.
Do I rush to the ER for treatment? This is not life-threatening, so the answer is no. And COVID-19 also reminds me to stay away!
I reach for the icepack and acetaminophen; Ibuprofen is second choice since I have a forehead hematoma as well. Which brings to mind, no excuse: ALWAYS wear a helmet. The stars were on my side with no concussion symptoms.
Remember to take a minute to assess the situation.
For medical problems and emergencies, I’m available. Call the doctor; we’ll figure out the best practice.
Stay healthy and enjoy the day!
