I had been planning on returning to full time posting and I was about 75% done with a post on GMO opposition when I suffered a mishap which will prevent my return to full time blogging.
On Saturday I was on a bike ride when a family decided to stop and completely block the bike trail on a blind curve at the bottom of a hill. This, by the way, is a stupid thing to do.
I could not stop in time. I swerved to avoid them. I successfully missed hitting anyone, but was thrown from my bike so violently that I fully lost consciousness. I started to awaken in the ambulance as it arrived at the hospital.
I have the following injuries:
- Numerous bruises and soft tissue injuries
- Sprained foot
- Minor skull fractures
- Moderate concussion
- Badly broken right humerus
Of these, my right arm is by far the worst. I am right handed and have zero use of it. Also very painful. It is in a sling, but I am scheduled to have it operated on next week. Screws and pins will be required to rebuild it.
I am told it will be months before it is 100% back to normal, but hopefully much sooner that I will be able to type with both hands. For now I am of limited capability and taking a lot of pain killers. Hence, no new posts for at least a couple weeks.
Also: I do not doubt there are typographical errors in this post. It took a grueling 45 minutes to write. Please, just deal with it. I am in no mood to go back and edit errors which may be obvious but do not detract from understanding the content.
