My second day of summer '09


I got out of school last Friday... and then two days into my summer I flipped a go kart going about 30 mph. I scraped up my elbows and legs pretty bad. I also broke a bone in my wrist... I'll put some pics up in a little bit. When I flipped i didd 2 full rolls and landed sideways. I blacked out for a minute or two. You could see my knucklr bone for my midddle finger and all the tendons and muscles and such. I went to the ER for a few hours 2 nights and they gave me 5 stitches to just hold the flap of skin down. Then yesterday we were at the hospital for 6 hours... only 1 hour for preparation for the surgery and 1 hour for the actual surgery... so basically we were sitting around waiting for a long time... which totally sucked because I hadnt eaten since lunch the previous day and I couldn't take any pain pills. When the guy went and looked at the roll cage and it was totally warped. He said there was a bolt stickingg out and that I must have hit my hand on that because there was skin still stuck on it. Well now I can't do RC or anything except tv for 2 months minimum... and of course I'm right handed and it happened to my right hand. Well I'm done complaining, and expect more of these because they give me something to do-besides watching tv. -Tyler

Just FYI for anyone that didn't know: It seems like no ones in a hurry to take care of you in the ER or the hospital... unless you're life is threatened. So if you want quick service youbetter start crying and wailing. lol

If I was on a dirt bike I have a feeling I'd be dead right now. I was lucky I was wearing a safety harness, helmet, and had a roll cage. I woulda been fine but when I flipped the force of it made my hands let go of the wheel and hit a bolt. but a broken bone and 9 stitches aren't too bad.

my opinion is that at least a dirt bike tends to not pin you to the ground and grind you up like ATV will
just 9 stitches.... thats not too bad.
i once got 44 stitches from a piece of lumber
heal up quickly

2x4 and a table saw threw a sharp shard and hit me in the jaw
i kept on working until i felt a breeze inside my mouth
i then checked the damage in the mirror and had a 1" gash clean through the cheek.
by the way its easy to pull your own stitches...just remember to pull on the knot after you cut the thread

those incidents happend 20 year ago, back when insurance covered near 100% and premiums were less than $20 a month.
those days are long gone
you get hurt today and its a short skip to the poor house for sure even if you are "covered" by insureance.

Yup, will do. I just got all my stitches out the other day (20). Now I'm wearing this brace thing. And yeah, nothing stops me from building. We lost power to an ice storm and had no electricity for 2 days... I built my F22 by candlelight and flashlights... nothing will stop me from my builds... unless I don't have anything to build. -Tyler
