Am I Missing a Part?!

So, I got my Stihl FS 45 trimmer out to clear some brush on a small hillside. It's all wild raspberry bushes in the spring and summer, with nasty thorns so I wasted to clear them out before they started to bud. In retrospect, they may have been too tough for the 45's plastic fingers. Regardless, I was going along and all of a sudden the head popped off and rolled down the hill and the shaft had the flexible drive shaft wobbling around at the end. The attached photos show the parts I have left lol, the head and main unit along with the (not pictured) flexible drive shaft. I can't figure out how it goes back together and suspect something is still out in the weeds, the bearing housing perhaps? Thanks.
