Maureen fell

Maureen had a fall on her bike today and dislocated her elbow.

It was a beautiful day, and we had an hour or so to go out for a bike ride.  We headed up Dry Creek road and were really enjoying ourselves.  Then Maureen’s chain dropped on a hill and she came to a stop with her feet still clipped into the pedals… and she fell on her elbow.  Ouch!!!

I had to ride back a few miles to get reception and to call one of our friends to come and pick us up and take us to the ER.  It took a few hours to get through the paperwork, x-rays, and then they put her under for just a few minutes (amazing drugs!) and popped the joints back into their correct spots.

Unfortunately she will have to wear a sling for a few weeks and won’t be able to ride the Bottega Gran Fondo this week-end, but at least it wasn’t a broken elbow!  Also good that I was home this week… (although, if I wasn’t, she would not have been on Dry Creek Road today…)
