I would post pix but there isn't much to see now. Most of the bruising is gone and just a few knots remain on my head and hip. Thank God the damage wasn't worse.
The pain was never great enough for more than just OTC relievers and sleep. This week the open wounds seem to have closed and stopped oozing anything, which makes it easier to wear clothing. Oh happy day!
With the concussion, headaches and nausea were constant companions the few three days or so. A new experience was mental fatigue, exhaustion may be more like it, which forced naps.
My helmet cracked almost straight across and had a little crushed area on the inside. So, that's the fourth trashed helmet in about 32 years. Not too bad.
The whole experience gives me new understanding of head injuries. The other stuff I've had before mental fatigue like that was a new experience.
I have spent years in the bowels of manufacturing plants helping to bring numerous products to market that touch virtually every aspect of life.
