Rest and sympathy should set you right! How's the leg?
I know recuperation is slow (dare I say at our age?) and there are lost minutes and hours. Here's sending you some more virtual healing power!
Oh dear me, that could have been a lot worse. Glad that you got away without major damage although the damage you sustained is bad enough.I did something similar, but I stayed in the car, desperately trying to brake. I hadn’t realised that the motor was stalled and the brakes didn’t work. I stopped when I hit a large gate and the house wall behind it. The car was a write off but I was unhurt except for a spot of PTSD which is still bothering me now. I can’t face that hill, never have done it again.
It is going to take a while and it should so you can have time to heal. At first you are going to be groggy with pain medication, so just sleep and think or meditate – meditation is good. When I had my un-diagnosed pneumonia for two weeks last Christmas and could not go to a doctor or get any help from Jim since he was oblivious to it (because of his Alzheimer,) I placed a small radio that can play CDs near my bed. Listening to good music seemed to help my chest pains, in this case, baroque music like Handel or even choirs – it really make me feel better and the only think I had to do is listen. Then by the 3rd week I could read books again. I know you must have a good pile of books ready …
What! Oh Vickie you sure are lucky. Hope you recover quickly

I'm holding you in my heart dear Vicki!
I'm holding you in my heart dear Vicki! I love you!
Wishing you a speedy and full recovery.
I'm sharing your information with Jackie Preis, my water aerobics buddy (who eschews anything PC related). She tried to call you while you were still in the hospital. Wishing you a fast heal - makes my spill in Central Park last year on the sidewalk on New Years Day in the sunshine sound like kid stuff. (I dislocated and shattered my elbow, and still feel it when the weather changes.) Physical therapy saved me. XO Sally Thompson
