I Was Almost a Widow

Keyword is ‘almost.’ Another keyword is ‘widow’ because Gym Hottie easily could be laid up in a wheelchair or worse. He does this thing with bicycles called racing, where you go really fast with a bunch of other dudes in spandex tryin’ to be all Lance Armstrong and shit. It was bound to happen but ironically could’ve been avoided if I had attended to a last-minute crisis at work thus making me home an hour later then perhaps making GH late for the race or not even having time to go. No, I got home by 5 in order for GH to attend his Tuesday night races. Coulda woulda shoulda.

At 7:02 pm, I got a call from GH’s bike buddy telling me he got in a nasty pile-up during the race and they are headed to the hospital. I pack up an already cranky baby and stop by Zip’s to pick up late dinner per GH’s request. And we waited…

Doesn't everybody prep for sutures with a bag of Doritos?

Staples weren't good enough; they had to remove 'em to STITCH his head back together *exaggeration*

Welp! Ready to go!

That ER bill is gonna be a real bitch. What– oh, he’s fine and recovering nicely. Humnoy likes to gently pat Dada’s scabs and poke in the sensitive road rash spots. Other than that, I am thankful for a healthy family, the medical field (for once), and bike helmets!

    • Ooh, YaYa. If you only knew! Well, he is hopefully giving it up for a while… just now focusing on mountain biking and cyclocross. According to him, they’re much “less dangerous.” I don’t know but whatever!
