Half Nekkid Thursday!

Today we present..
The day the AF conducted physics experiments and found out Newton was right.
Logo went across the street
She didn't look both ways
Logo forgot what happened then
It's all kind of a haze.
A car hit Logo quickly
Logo began to fly
But her head went through the windshield
She never reached the sky.
Logo skid across the pavement
Then laid there in a heap
traffic was blocked for miles
Blood began to seep.
The aid car took her into town
A clinic took her in
They said she was all busted up
in need of rods and pins.
Her scapula was broken
So was her collarbone
Her leg looked like a phone pole
And her head needed sewn.
They did a CAT scan of her brain
because she was so dizzy
She couldn't sit up on her own
She kept the nurses busy.
Weeks later she got to go back home
It was a year till she could walk
That was over ten years ago now
She can ski and even climb rocks.
But let this be a lesson to all
It can be dangerous to use your feet
Don't be brave, take this advice
Take a bus to cross the street!
Now to the pictures, the first is two of the lovely titanium screws and rod that were inserted and later removed from the lower left leg of the Alpha Female. For those who love gory details, they pop the kneecap off to do this.
Next is the leg which had the rod in it for about four years, requiring three surgeries, fun fun fun!


Note the lovely scar on the knee? and there are small frankenstein-ish scars on the inner ankle too.

Last we have the misshapen collarbone curtesy of the roof of the car. The shoulderblade was a more impressive break, but no visible signs, so we have to make do this. There ya have it! This is why we are big fans of crosswalks. Happy HNT!

Benjamin said...

I'm so not a fan of the gory details.

Meanwhile: how bad is it that I was really, really upset about the dog getting hit, and then realized "oh, whew, it's a person."
"... uh .. wait a minute."

Happy HNT! :-)

I love the poem. I don't like what happened to you so you could write the poem, but I like the poem.

Chick said...

I love collarbones.

Happy HNT.

Jaxe said...

I love the shots, esp. the neck shot ;-) happy hnt

robmcj said...

Bravo! Thanks for sharing and for reminding me we're all just a step away from obliteration.

Only one complaint - not gory enough. See my HNT for more gore.

As I read the story and scrolled down to the photo, I was expecting a picture of your dog. Even when you mentioned she could ski, I still didn't twig. There are some clever dogs, I've seen one that could skateboard.

Glad you survived and turned it into a post. Good luck!
