Most of the injuries are healing just fine, and I'm back on my bike, very cautiously this time around. One interesting aspect, though, is that I now have two red bruises on my arm that just appeared there yesterday. As in, eight days after the accident. And I don't even think there was direct impact to the site where one of these has shown up. Is this weird? Anyone out there have experience with delayed bruising? According to my classmates, I either have leukemia or hemophilia. Thanks, guys.
What situations like this make me realize, though, is how happy I am to be in a problem-based learning curriculum. It's not just that I have two funky bruises on my arm; it's "huh, I have two funky bruises on my arm. I wonder if I can find more information on that which could tell me how weird that really is." It's a sometimes tortuous process that means you're always looking for more information, but it has the excitement of a detective chase. I'll try to post more on PBL in the future, which probably won't be hard, as it dominates my life these days.
