I went and saw an orthopedic specialist on Monday. Had some really good news. My injuries are to the top of my radius by my elbow and the base of my thumb metacarpal. I stiff-armed myself from the ground to protect myself and the bike. Now I have a bunch cracks, micro-cracks, fractures, or whatever you would like to call them from the shock of crashing at 13.7 MPH. The good news is no cast. The bad news is some braces, a sling, and pain every time I move it the wrong way.
Not the best, or even great, but better than the worst. Now it's just life.
