So as any of you who follow me on other social media probably heard, I managed to crash my bike pretty badly yesterday and broke both arms (aaaand possibly also my right kneecap, still waiting to hear about that). Waiting to find out whether I get two casts or if they'll let me off with one or both arms in soft slings (which is what I have now--if I'm careful, I can type!). Luckily, my parents happened to be in town at the time, so they'll be sticking around and helping out. No word yet on recovery times, although the ER doc suspected more like 3-4 weeks than 6-8 weeks. Hooray for being young and otherwise healthy, I guess?

Damn, how did that manage to happen?! It's nice of your arms to split recovery time between them and hopefully that does stay as short as the doctor projected. And YAY for your parents being around for it, that's a huge help.

Eep! Both arms? You shouldn't be such an over-achiever in everything! I'm glad your parents are there to help out, and I hope you feel better soon!

Good grief, I don't even know how you could do that. Hope you can manage for the next few weeks without everything hurting constantly. Feel better!

Oh my goodness! Hope you heal up soon and get to keep the softer slings!

You've broken both arms, but you're still able to type? You are hardcore! (and still will be even if you're using dictation software to post).

get well soon!

Holy shit! I wish you a very speedy recovery. Losing much of the use for both arms is probably going to make daily life a big pain in the butt for a while, so I'm glad that your parents are around to help you out. That crash sucks, but it sounds like you escaped without damage to your head/spine, so there's something to be thankful for. Here's hoping the ER doc is right about your possibilities for faster than usual healing.

OMG! Hope you heal REALLY fast. Your thoroughness in other areas did not need to extend to this, you know. I will keep my fingers crossed re the slings instead of casts and think really really good heal-up-fast thoughts! *hugs*

Gah! I'm behind on Tumblr, so hadn't yet managed to reach news of that. Indeed, you didn't need to be so thorough in this particular area. I wish you a speedy, relatively pain-free recovery. <3

Sounds painful and inconvenient! I wish you the quickest possible recovery.
