Dodging the Roadkill: Recovering

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I want to thank you for all of your support over the past couple of weeks.  It’s been nearly three weeks since my accident, and I haven’t been able to sit at the computer long enough to post any updates.

If you follow me on Facebook, then we’ve been able to stay in touch, but I’ve had to keep my leg elevated, so it’s been a bit of a challenge.

First, let me say, that I’m not in as bad a shape from the accident as some people have experienced.  My injuries were minor, there were no broken bones, and I lived to tell the tale.  I have many friends who are in worse shape, so it’s hard for me to complain.  I HAVE missed being able to ride, but that changed this week.
