So I was on my way to work Thursday afternoon. I was making my way down 6th St. headed west. As soon as I crossed over Congress I hit a huge pot hole/water main in the street. I tried to catch myself but it was too late, my hands had already slipped forward over my handle bars and I was going down. I landed on my shoulder and my head and this apparently snapped my collar bone in half on my left side. There were a bunch of people around and luckily a very nice lady helped me out of the street and phoned 911. Here are a couple of crappy pictures I took sitting in the hospital waiting for my surgery:
I had surgery the next day. The doctor connected my collar bone back together with a metal plate and a couple of bone screws. It will be around a month at least before I can really ride my bike again, and who knows how long before I can safely participate in a polo match. I'm really bummed about not getting to go to Atlanta. Hopefully I'll make it to Denver next month.
Have a good day, and look out for pot holes!
