what an interesting few days. first - many, many thanks for the kind comments and emails. i'm a lucky guy with no lack of support.
doc says collarbone might heal w/o surgery - all those chunks would make a big knot. it might not though, and would take a long time if it does work. so - my choice is an upgrade, pure ti baby. a plate and screws puts it all back together.
it looks like i'm out for at least a month - from work and riding. that's what i'm told anyway...but ya know my style by now...
in any case, for at least 2 weeks i can't do much that involves movement, so i'll be getting cerebral. the grey matter is long overdue for some feeding anyway.
any suggestions as to cerebral topics?
