Harry Potter

P1050143

This is my Harry Potter scar. On August 1st, 2010, I went cycling and got hit by a car at 40mph. I suffered 4 skull fractures, a broken eye socket, broken nose, smashed teeth, ripped up knee, banged up ankles and a dislocated hip. My bike was destroyed. I was in a coma for a week, and the doctors thought I wouldn’t make it. But I did. I can’t remember anything about the accident, or any of last year after the accident. 3 weeks ago I had surgery on my eye to correct double vision caused by the accident. They took my left eye out, cut the muscles that control where it points, and put it back in. It seems to have worked, mostly, and so I can rid a bike again. A motorbike, that is. I tried cycling again, and even though I don’t remember the accident it was still very upsetting the first time a car came anywhere near. So I’ll stick to mountain biking, and motorcycling, which is much safer. Except, as long as the bike starts up in the morning, I’ll be at the Nurburgring tomorrow!
