I did the same thing. I didn't calm down too much. But I did calm down. I had an accident in Angel Fire bike park in New Mexico, and had an ear they had to sew back on after my helmet came off. I just slowed down and hit slightly smaller jumps and drops. But I'm not as resilient as I used to be. I'm 39, maybe when I turn 40, I'll be smarter ;-)
However, the thought of recovery time puts a damper on my adrenaline pumping ego. I hope you keep banging out jumps and drops until you can't anymore for a long time! Have fun pushing yourselves everyone!
P.S. Great articulated story wasn't it? Well written. Exciting to read (minus the injury part).
