hit and run

Last evening I was hit by fast moving bike. Apart from a swollen arm, I am ok. It could have been much worse if I had fallen on the hard asphalt and hit my head or something. But only my right arm was hurt and no bones were broken. And no bleeding either. There is a bit of internal clotting and of course swelling. I had dislocated the same arm three years back, in July 2006. It had mended nicely and when the bike hit me, my first worry was a fracture. My guardian angel must have been working over time. Yes, it is vey painful as of now but I am very happy to alive and thriving!
