Please Be Smarter than Me!
« on: November 20, 2018, 09:13:35 PM »
A blade broke today.
Its happens to all of us.
I took the door off the idle side and the wheel was still spinning 192.3 mph.

For some unknown reason, I was in a hurry and took a 2 foot piece of 1 inch square
sticker and said I would stop the wheel.

I was doing good until the sticker hit the wrong side of the wheel.
The spoke hit that stick and jabbed me right in my belly, knocked me to the ground I could could not get any breath.
Kirk thought it had hit a rib but I couldn't talk or breath.
Took about 40 seconds of gasping to finally start to breath.
Tonight I'm am very sore. VERY SORE!
Please.....ya'll can tease the Old goat if you want.....I can talk it but please don't try this.



 
The older I get I wish my body could Re-Gen.

Sorry you got smacked in the belly.  How is your ankle?  You are catching up to MM with the injury photos.

My ankle is fine Caveman unless I twist it. Then it will swell a little.
Kirk said the injury looks like the same injury when you take a bullet and have a vest on.
Said my reaction was the same too.  :o

 :o I'm glad it wasn't any worse. Trouble seems to find me easily enough, I don't need to go looking for it.

Glad to hear you are sort of OK, but you really should go to the emergency vet and have them look at that.  You and I have both seen how spleen/liver injuries can hide and just what they can do to you when they decide to go.

While it does not "look" that bad the description of how you reacted and the timeline that you gave;  I absolutely suggest that you go have someone (qualified MD) take a look. 
You are probably OK but internal bleeding can sneak up and take you out with no warning. 
Just saying.
