a little set back from a good thing...

Last Saturday was JOEYs first ride in 7 weeks. We rode the rail trail for 1 hr 20 min. I fixed up JOEYs single speed with the perfect rail trail gear. He said it felt great to be out, but the rail trail is still as boring as he remembers.

On Friday the day before his ride, JOEY fell in the yard. He tried to catch himself and then remembered at the last second he had 2 broken wrists, he pulled his hands back just in time to hit his forehead on the ground. I'm sure it was a funny site, but it didn't feel so great.

Saturday on the ride he had no pain but when he woke up on Sunday his hand was swollen so bad it looked like his fingernails were going to pop off. That sure put a stop to riding.
Yesterday rode the rail trail again and no pain. :) but still swollen :( we were pretty concerned so we got up early this morning and went back to the doctor. more x-rays. and then good news. nothing changed. just irritated.

so we are goiong to ride again today. more to come.
