I crashed while cycling recently and shattered my scapula, fractured elbow, and tore up my arm from the elbow down the forearm.  I’m not allowed to drive but, while I’m typing one-handed I can still work, if only remotely for now.  I haven’t taken any pain meds although they prescribed some pretty strong ones.  A friend pointed out though that U2 singer Bono had a similar crash.  He received all the same injuries, and more, and his seem a lot worse than mine.  All in all, I see plenty of blessings in my accident.
