elbow at one week

So this is what one week of healing looks like. Note the shaved arms, ah crap, I had to shave a little bit to stick the band aid on then I shaved a bit more, and a bit more, then all the hair on the right arm was gone and I looked kind of stupid with one hairy and one hairless then the left got the shave to. And here we are

slow ride

So the elbow is healing up, I was supposed to get the stitches out today but the doctor wants to leave them in for couple more days. . So I went riding with Trish Sinclair yesterday and we did the baker ride and it was solid, the whole road up the climb was freshly paved and it was sure nice, the way down was insanely fast, I craped my chamois several times. I also developed tendonitis in my wrist. The weather is wicked to, like 25 and very sunny and the full on Fraser valley smog has not set in just yet but in like 3days I wont be able to breathe, ah it will be good altitude training for the world championship. Check out the photo of Trish and her sweet ride I think Trish is oh around 65years old, cause that’s how old you have to be to drive that thing right? Oh sweet grandma car. Got my drug test back today and I have the Hemaocrit of a week women, but what can you do, its always like that. I upgraded my scooter situation a couple weeks a go this new one just rips. Watched Family guy yesterday, how about the monkey smoking dope and listening to “slow ride take it easy” oh classic.

Rickys Down!

So I just got back form Idaho NORBA I raced the XC on Saturday and things went alright but not good. I raced the first lap, made it up to 7th then I had some chain problems and had to stop and fix it then when I was stopped I got real cold and could not get it going again. Finished up in 19th. Sunday I raced the short track for 5 seconds and touched wheels with some guy and went down hard on my elbow then slid on my elbow on gravel road and it hurt like a monkey then I went to the hospital in Sandpoint and they put me on morphine with IV and then took X-rays and then cleaned the cut and then put 7 stitches in and then ran antibiotics through the IV then sent me home and today I am supper stiff all over and feel demented from the IV stuff. Got some road (gravel)rash on my shoulder, ribs, hip, and knee. Oh I feel like crap. The pain is crazy, last night I got no sleep, “I am running on NO sleep, and the red light is burring my brain” “Kenny” Then this afternoon this guy from the CCES came to my door and I had to pee in a cup and fill out all this paper work. Good timing eh? “uh you tested positive for morphine” this is going to be a night mare. And I am working on the insurance thing. There is no way I am doing Aspen I am down for at least 2 weeks of no racing. But then I should be good. I am going to see my family doctor tomorrow. They want me to go on more antibiotics but I don’t want to, they mess you up for long time. But hey its good to be at home my mom is taking good care of me. Did you hear about the Aussies that got hit in Germany? that’s not good. Right now I am down but, things could be a whole lot worse. I hope to be on fire for worlds and I might do fernie #2, but right now I just got to make sure this elbow does not get infected. No broken bones or chips and no other big damage just cut up and scraped up and real sore but OK. But its good to chill, I got the season 3 of Seinfeld on DVD and I am working on it. The tour this morning, just wicked. Later
