Cycling accident. Wheel got caught in road. face hit ground.

Helicopter airlift to Stonybrook hospital. Thats real loud.

Lost several teeth. Broke several teeth. Fractured jaw. Broken area between nose and mouth.

Reconstructive surgery. Local anaesthesias only. 6 hour surgery. Ceramic and metal bits holding teeth and palate together. Wiring through mouth. Abrasions all over.

Now chewing for 4 weeks. Cannot speak. Mouth not working. Heavy narcotics.

I have been released to home oddly enough. On morphine and percoset.

No idea when I can drive again. Follow ups with plastic surgeons and trauma teams on Friday.

Hurts.

Wow, that sounds terrible. I hope you have a fast, pain-free recovery.


And here's the obligatory "pics or it didn't happen."

Stuff like this is why I try not to do anything, ever. People often mistake my cautious nature for laziness.

As I told on Facebook man, that is harsh, very harsh. The no chewing part is the worst I think. Did the surgeries go all right? And how fast were you?

That's just awful. Sounds like you've got a lengthy recovery to endure. Hang in there.

Ow. Hope you heal soon.

I guess you really are done with the martial arts now.

On the plus side, you will be all set if your band has any Halloween gigs.

Also, you are pretty much free to post whatever you wish in RSP now, as you can always blame the drugs if you want to take it back later.

Wow, that sounds like a nightmare.

(I wish you could type the words "just kidding" or something.)

Get better soon, although it sounds likes it might take awhile.

Get well soon, Paul. Not to be glib, but sometimes there is a bright side to such events. I had a friend who had the exact same thing happen to him, and he figured that his daily life was so crappy that it was the perfect time to cold turkey the cigarettes. He successfully stopped smoking after years of failure.

All the best for the coming weeks and months. I really hope you come out of it looking at good as can be.

I bought some shoes from a drug dealer. I don’t know what he laced them with, but I’ve been tripping all day.

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.
