Life So I Was Feeling Sorry For Myself When…

In response to my post yesterday about my recent snowboarding accident—and trip, four days later, to the ER, where I learned that I didn’t have any broken bones—Doug sent this picture in to help me keep things in perspective.
I just read your Slog post. You have my deepest sympathies. Attached are two x-rays of my humerus—the bone that runs from the shoulder to the elbow in my left arm. Snapped in two while snowboarding and then “patched” together with a steel rod. Once you’ve been seriously injured on a board, your riding career is never the same. I’ve turned into a great big pussy on the slopes.—Doug
I’ve never been anything other than a pussy on the slopes—so it looks like I’ll have to turn into a teeny, weeny kitten. Thanks for sharing, Doug.
