Four stitches to the head = mega fail

20 July 2009

Welcome to the archive

This post is old… It's probably been exported and imported from at least three different blogging platforms over the year. That probably means that there are broken images and links. If the post is technical in nature, any adivce is out of date and irrelevant. Or more likely, it was the wafflings of bored-past me with too much time on his hands. If it is the latter I would probably cringe if I re-read it. But it's here because it's part of my past, not my present.


Ok... so the explanation to the facebook/twitter update... I had a minor incident with my bike that involved falling off into a parked car and then crawling to the side of the road and blacking out nicely...  I honestly can't remember exactly what happened, however I think that the chain of my bike came loose from the cogs which knocked me off.

I awoke at the side of the road as an ambulance turned up to take me into A&E which is where I stayed for a couple of hours.  Four stitches later, plus a couple of oversized plasters, I was released at 22:00!

Yet, that is not where this story ends, 06:30 the following morning (Sunday) I was readmitted having thrown up the contents of my stomach at hourly intervals during the night.  I stayed there until 10:00 Monday morning and have now been released into the world!

The bottom line - I am fine, stop panicking about me.  Stitches come out on Friday. Back to all posts
