Just Gonna be Lurking for awhile

  1. Hey ya'll- looks like I will be just looking for a while. Was in a MVA monday night, just got back from the hospital this am. We are all intact, I had surgery on my L arm for a fx ulna. I got some new hard ware heee. I'm stuck in the house for 4-6 weeks. Blech. My truck looks like crap. Not sure if it's totalled yet. The woman that hit us in far worse shape. She was really flying. Anyway, I am on Lortab and rambling. Hard to type too. Life is good. I can still walk about freely.

    So glad you are ok.

    Lurk all you want . . . you'll post though. It's an addiction.

    Shampooing is a pain in the neck with a fx arm, from what I've been told.
    Maybe when your'e up to it, you can tell us what is the things you find the most difficult to do...from the patients point of view.

    Glad to hear it wasn't any worse. You can always get another truck.
    Hope the other driver improves real soon too.
