Well It finally came.  I received a check from CNA insurance for $6,427.08 to pay for the repair of my motorcycle.  I drove over to North County House of Motorcycles with a cashier’s check, and they’ll be ordering the parts for my bike on Monday.

It’s been two and a half months since my accident, but now, in another week or so, I’ll have my motorcycle back, and I can start riding again.

As far as the larger personal injury claim goes, I had to go in this last week and get an MRI.  As it turns out, I did, in fact, break my leg.  They found a non-displaced stress fracture of the tibia, as well as another fracture to something called the patellar plate.  That would, most likely, explain the weeks of crutch and cane I needed to use.

I still have a few weeks of physical therapy left, but after that, we’ll be looking at the claim for injury, lost wages, and what-not.

But for now, I’m just glad to know that Fidget is getting fixed.
