all in all a minor off... I'm going to just paste already written content from emails and facebook, so forgive me if it reads very badly lol....
F150 cut me off, I tried to avoid but impacted rear fender which knocked me off the bike. The initial impact caused the fractures and lacerations, the actual off caused no further injuries. I was wearing full gear.
As motorcycle accidents go, it was minor. The bike is safely in my garage and was ridden there by a friend I ride with (Thanks Spoil9!). The damage is pretty minimal, aside from the right mirror and brake pedal its just cosmetic, functional repair cost should be under $200. I did visit the ER via ambulance. My blood sugar at the scene was 50 and I was light headed and pale, likely slight shock from the trauma and damage to my left hand. I was "alert x3" whick is highest level of awareness and I briefed the EMT girls on my stats and condition the same way I would have i I were handing off a ski injury from Ski Patrol. I initially asked only for field dressing and release, but with my blood sugar crashing it became clear to me that I needed further care.
Fourth metacarpal broken in two and middle phalanx of the third finger shattered in multiple pieces
The hand surgeon said it was about 50/50 if i would heal with just a splint or need surgery, and he suggested just the splint and see how it goes, so that is where we are for 2 weeks.
I think thats all for now, I am on Keflex as an antibiotic to prevent infection and vicodin 750mg for pain.
