Car Accident

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm not going to be around much the next few days. I was in a fairly nasty car accident this am. They are not certain if our car is totaled or not. I ended up being taken by ambulance to the hospital. Fortunately they say I'm just "banged up" and I should be alright in a few days.

I'm sore, I can barely walk. I got the chemicals from the air bag in my eyes, so I can barely see. I have a burn on my arm and cuts and bruises all over my body. I've cancelled my dogs for the rest of the week. I don't know if I'm going to be able to do any exercise over the next few days.

I'm sad, depressed, and in pain. I can't believe this is happening. Now life gets to be really screwed up.

    I am SOOOOOO SORRY Kitty! I am sooooo sorry about the accident, but I am equally sorry that I missed this while I was away at a conference! I do hope that everything works out ok, and I am glad that you were checked out thoroughly at the hospital. I know too many people that haven't been checked after an accident and had long term effects.

    Hang in there, girlfriend..............sending you love and hugs!

    Kitty -- So sorry to hear about your accident. Sending lots of prayers and good wishes your way for a speedy recovery. I have heard that the air bags can do a lot of damage and I know that a child in our area was killed by one because she was too little to be in the front seat in a regular seat belt. Take it easy -- let others help you. Terrible time for this to happen, but there is never a good time to be involved in such life-changing circumstances. Blessings, Lennie

    Yes, all natural feelings! But, always try to focus on the good stuff! That mean ol' chemical covered air bag saved your life! You are all bruised and in pain, but you are able to feel that pain.... The alternatives are broken bones and snapped spines that allow no feeling at all! So, you won't be able to exercise as much! This is maybe a week of recovery, maybe a little more.... You are going to be just fine! Remember there are so many who are not as lucky as you to be in pain, bruised, stiff and grumpy!

    I'm so sorry to hear about your car accident! Even though you may not have been seriously injured you were still banged up enough for them to take you by ambulance to the hospital. Take it easy! I'm sending lots of positive healing thoughts your way!!

    I am so sorry to hear about your accident. Wish I was there to help. I am so glad it wasn't worse - I find it amazing how much I have grown to care about some of my sparkfriends, among which I count you! Please take good care and pamper yourself as much as possible, and heal!! emoticon

    I am so sorry. You are probably going to experience symptoms of shock and headaches from the stress over the next couple of weeks. I only smacked my head and could not believe how much it affected me. Keep the doctor close and make sure they tell you what are normal symptoms and what symptoms should not be ignored.

    I pray you recover quickly.

    I'm glad you have Dave with you - he's going to take such good care of you . You'll be as good as new as soon as humanly possible. I know it!

    I also want to suspend our challenge until you are well enough to participate. I only thought of doing a challenge to motivate YOU.

    Rest well. Heal well.

    Ouchy! Boy you have it rough right now, but at least you have got your mind set on taking it easy for a few days. It's really important to take a time out of life and just do your thing. When you get back into the swing of things, take it easy and slow. You are going to be sore tomorrow, try some light stretching if you can. I have had my fair share and the airbag detail has got to be the worst! I feel your pain and hope that your hubby helps you out over the next couple days. Get some rest!

    So sorry to hear about the accident, but glad that you're okay - and glad that they checked you out just to make sure. What some people won't do to get a ride in an ambulance. :-) You'll likely be even more sore tomorrow as your body deals with the shock that it absorbed. Give yourself time to rest and heal and I'll be here waiting to eat your dust. emoticon

    Ouch!! I'm sorry that happened to you, but very grateful you're going to be alright. Heal well.

    Oh my gosh, I'm glad that you are going to be ok. Take your time and heal. I am so sorry. Thank goodness it wasn't any worse than what it was. Hugs, gentle ones of course.

    Life continues to happen but we don't have to go through it alone. Rest up...and know you have support here :)

    Oh how awful. Get the rest you need and hopefully soon the pain will be gone. So glad you were not anymore injured than you are.

    I hope to be hearing from you soon.

    Wow! Hang in there hun! It may seem dark to you right now but you will be so much stronger once you get through this!

    Oh sweetie! I'm so sorry!! I know both what it's like to be in a car accident (my Subaru a year ago was hit dead on by a drunk driver with hubby and I and Jen in it) and about being sidelined by injury. At least you're going to be alright. Rest, and take care of yourself and all the details with the insurance and DMV. I'll be thinking about you every day and check in with us as soon as you can.

    Love you sweetie, very gentle (((HUGS))) emoticon
