This Sunday will be three weeks since the accident. My ankle is better, only gets sore if I walk or drive too long. Dan’s toe is back to normal coloring. New Zoom? Unfortunately work on it hasn’t even started. The fate of when that will actually happen is held by the insurance company and bike shop gods. It’s very frustrating, although with the 90° weather we’ve been having recently I don’t know how adventurous I would feel about rides of length anyhow….
On Sunday we were hit by a car, about an hour away from home. It was a car pulling out of a driveway and unfortunately the driver wasn’t looking. We ended up on the opposite side of the road and it would have been much worse if Dan hadn’t been able to keep the bike up. At some point his foot must have hit the ground, his toe is bruised and the foot is sore. My right foot ended up between the bike and car. I was taken by ambulance to the hospital and have a bad sprain; I was sent home with an air cast and two prescriptions for pain meds. Dan offered to get the car or call a friend to drive me home but I had the feeling if I didn’t get back on the bike then it would be a long time before I did again.
May doesn’t seem to be our month for rides. Last year Old Zoom was in the shop for three weeks and didn’t get home until literally hours before we were supposed to be leaving on our big trip. New Zoom is in the driveway waiting to be towed and will most likely be in the shop for at least that same amount of time….
