No serious damage

This morning

I woke up with a very painful and swollen left hand. After ignoring everyone’s advise yesterday I thought I should get it checked out.


I was advised to go to Bury hospital. After waiting a short while, I was seen by the triage nurse who requested an x-ray.


After another short wait I had my x-ray done. The radiographer didn’t really have a sense of humour. He had me in so many positions and took images from different angles, I asked if he did weddings. No reply.


Back to the waiting room for a short wait before being seen by a doctor. Fortunately no broken bones, I managed to escape my low side with soft tissue damage. Pain killers and rest.


As soon as the swelling goes down and I can fit my glove on, I will be back on my beloved bike. Who needs a foot peg anyway?
