I recently saw on your blog about the doubts you have had regarding mine and Josh’s wreck on his motorcycle so let me clear up any doubts you may have.
Around 7pm on June 25th we were headed to the store and his bike bogged down on him and instead on letting it die he downshifted and gave it to much gas causing the front end to come up. His bike is NOT a Harley nor does it have a high back sissy bar. I was taught by my father when a bike loses control and the passenger is in danger of coming off the bike you let go of the rider and bike and duck, cover and roll. I am not sure how I hit the pavement but Josh and the bike landed in the grass and I was on the street with my head on the curb.
I did not suffer an extreme case of road rash only slightly to the right shoulder and didn’t even know I was bleeding from my head until Josh told me. I didn’t lose consciousness and really didn’t want to go to the hospital. I had a friend take me home while he drove the bike back and once my sister and Josh looked at the back of my head it was certain I was going to the ER.
I was diagnosed with Subdural Hematoma with a Stage 2 Concussion. I was admitted to Providence Hospital after midnight after the results of my catscan. Dr. Marshall found a bit of bruising on the front of the brain due to the impact of the back of my head and wanted to
ensure it did not bleed over night.
The next morning June 26th around 7am I was taken for another catscan and it showed clear. I was released around 2 pm on June 26th seeing the catscan came back clear.and I do apologize it was 7 staples put in not 6. I had them removed today and sending the pictures and you have my full approval to post them on your blog.
This way you and everyone else can see that I was injured it was serious and I am slowly recovering from the accident. If you feel you need anymore information feel free to email me anytime.
Oh and the reason for not being able to see the staples clearly the first not the blood had dried and the doctor stapled over my hair and that was Josh’s hand moving the hair back tpo take the ic no mine, my nails stay red.
