Mountain Bike, Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?

Just in time for Halloween, I tore up my calf while out on a mountain bike ride. My shoe was squishy with blood loss by the time I made it home. I cleaned it up in the hopes that I wouldn't need stitches (the doctor laughed at this idea and said it would take at least a month to heal without them), but it was pretty gruesome and wouldn't stop bleeding.

The gash: 3cm wide x 9cm long. The number of stitches: 12.

Ahh! Ouch. I hope it heals soon, and prettily.

Ouch indeed! Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Thank you, Ken and Nik. Two days later, the pain isn't so bad and I'm almost walking without a limp.
