old injury list
rolled my ankle jumping a fence at the raveonettes show and landed on a parking block. sliced finger on barbed wire that night too. different fence. wrists have been hating me broken knuckle from hitting a fridge. slammed at the view pool after getting the light and dropping in on the loveseat. smashed my face saw the light flash and messed up the wrist. not sure if its bones or tendons. got a full arm cast n was cutting a seatpost lug, got some steel embedded in the eye and they had to dremel it out. fun. my wrists still hurt and i was walking home from surfing and stepped on a bee. got a full load of bee poison in the foot. a little venom is good for you but a swollen foot doesnt fit in a slip on easly. pulled a couple of muscles in my shoulder and neck lifting stuff at work. next day i lost my crown and core of my tooth. see dentist tomorrow. time to sell some stuff. just swung a nice neutral flame over the top of my right hand while i was adjusting a stem i was brazing. its my last month of health care too. both wrists hate filing and im having to wrap them at work. pain. hip hurts walking around in sarjah. knee got wierd too. got carpel tunnel /tendenitus digging ditches and throwing plywood. sunk an exacto plate above the web in my hand cutting baleen in santa cruz. high centered on a submerged rock at the point at k55 and pinned my hand n sliced it up. bled in the water for 3 or so hours cause the waves were so good.iv been doing pretty good except from skinned knuckles and the ooccasional burn but yesterday i was at bijou park and the squared bowl was really slippery and i ended up slipping out pumping around the corner and was upside down. little rasberry on the forearm and a bit sore on the hip. i had to lay there for a second. im really sore after rickeys birthday skate party. iv never done so many early grabs and my arms are tired from pulling myself into the air. also have some masonite burns and my hand feels wierd. slammed really hard snowskating of all things. bombed this little bank and somehow ended up diving into the 2 inch deep snow and shoulder checking /karate rolling the ground underneath it. got a little ankle love and layed out on a boulder that day too! im sore. went past a boundary rope and found some rocks. one found my tailbone. it hurt. had to lay there for a while. burnt my arm turning the propane hearer in the shed off. it didnt hurt and seemed minor. somehow it became a 2 inch scar.
I was cheating and cutting gates off my aluminum gas tanks with the tig torch and the gate was still hot when i was cleaning up and burnt my wrist pretty good. dislocated left elbow in the street first day back home from tahoe. ambulance ride to scripps with no insurance. didnt get to surf that trip. hiking back from fishing at cup lake I didnt lower myself down off some boulders correctly and ended up slightly rolling my ankle and bouncing off a couple smaller boulders. ended up with a few scrapes and i had to wrap the ankle to get the rest of the way back. stabbed myself in the finger deep with a dirty sharpened spoke taking bearing covers off. I had an errant piece of hot welding wire go through my glove and sink into my finger to what im pretty sure was bone. it broke off the weld and stayed lodged deep in the skin until i pulled it out. it was the most intensely concentrated pain iv felt in a while.
center punch to break glass and cut my right thumb knuckle really deep. had nicole and another emt wrap/splint it up. really worried i cut the tendon.
