My fall from Glory

So, I broke my back a little. Yep, I was mountain biking last Friday and my co-workers were like hey lets go try out the obstacle course. I was like okay. We got to this thing called the teeter totter and I decided I would be cool and do it. I ended up teeter tottering right of the top of the thing onto my head. Man that hurt. I remember seeing the ground rushing at me and flailing around in pain. Luckily some nice Christian blokes showed up gave some prayers and helped carry me to a truck. Well they rushed me off to the ER and a cat scan confirmed a small compression fracture. No concussion though (let that be a lesson kids, always wear your helmet). The ER doctor said that outside of surgery there really isn’t anything that can be done to speed the healing on this type of injury. So they gave me some narcotics and told me that is the pain doesn’t continue improving over time I should go see a specialist. Well the pain has improved a lot over the past week so I have not seen a specialist yet. But I may go to one next week just to be safe. Anyways I think I am done being cool now. From now on when I ski or bike I am not doing any crazy jumps or tricks. I am just gunna enjoy the ride as is.
