Since I know everyone has been wondering how my bruised thigh has been healing up, I thought this would be a good time to share.
It's been a full week since I fell on a rock, and the bruising is now ripe with color. There's still a lump in the middle of where I hit the rock, but it's loosening up each day. The deep color on the back of my leg has spread and gotten more vivid as the pain from the bruise has nearly melted away.
Nearly, since I've got good range of motion and have been able to ride the bike without much notice of the bruise. But every time I poke at it, it hurts.
