OUCH hope he get well soon
glad to hear he's not seriously injured, GWS
Scary! Glad he's OK. Hooray for the Emergency services and the NHS.
It was you, a familiar looking face, whom I noticed first, then checked the Patient listings, & saw the name
As you no doubt realise, I wasn't being stand offish, but didn't want to intrude too much
Nope!, but there were some good Senior Doctors on last night, I'd trust them with my daughters life
Indeed, we shall
One of my collegues, who I believe you may know, is a 'thorper', but wasn't there last night
@DCLane thank God Little Lane is OK and well done NHS.
A GWS for the wee man.
Glad he didn't do himself any major damage, my best wishes for a quick recovery.
Yikes, horrible for you. Glad he's ok. Hope the recovery goes well.
Good job boys bounce, hope he is fully recovered soon.
Get well soon youngman.
Thanks all. He's up and moving fine today although a bit gingerly.
And before you ask "how's the bike", the X-Wing was returned to us this morning. Apart from a buckled rear wheel and bent mech hanger it's fine. He took the impact of the fall with his head and the bike simply bounced away.
I'm aware the helmet debate has both sides - but it's another vote of confidence for the Uvex helmets I buy for the family.
Good to hear, his health that is, staying away from the helmet debate
Glad to hear hes up and about , and well done to hospital and emergency services
What time did you get out?
Was it just x-rays, or a CT as well?
The Consultant, who was on last night, rides too, & commutes in sometimes (from twixt Selby & Brotherton)
I won't get into it either, but I have seen 'both sides of the (helmet/no helmet) fence' over the past 20 years, I've been at PGH
(presume he was at a race/training session, so he'd have had to wear it anyway?)
In my own son's case, he nutted a tree trunk with a glancing blow but the bike somersaulted hard enough that we found one of his bidons lodged in the hedge about five feet up the bank. The "brow" of his helmet bore scuff marks and the side was broken; he had some scuff marks and bruising to his jaw and temple. If the blow, with helmet, was hard enough to KO him for a couple of minutes I shudder to think what would have happened without a helmet. I have also gone OTB hard enough to leave an imprint of the texture of the road in the helmet shell and for me to see stars. Again, I shudder to think what would have happened if that chunk of styrofoam hadn't been there to absorb and spread the impact.
