My surgery went well. The doc gave me the screws he took out of my ankle! I really didn't expect them to look like something you'd buy at Home Depot, but geez, they do!!
The doctor gave me 40 Vicodin with a refill, and I took 4 pills on Friday and one on Saturday and that was it. Talk about drug overkill.
On the way to the hospital we got hit by an idiot driving a pickup truck and a cattle hauler. It sort of looked like the one below:
I was coming down the mountain entering a hairpin switchback and he was going up the mountain. His truck was in his lane but he wasn't paying attention, going too fast, and his trailer crossed WAY OVER the center line. I stopped but not soon enough, and even though I was squished against the right-side of my lane, almost off the road, the trailer hit my car. Actually the HOOD of my car got wedged into the slats of the cattle carrier!
SO: minor hit, major damage: the hood of my car has a two-foot gash in it like you took a can opener to it, the front-left bumper is smashed, the headlight is smashed, the driver's door creaks, there's a hole in the front bumper and it needs a front end alignment!
I told the cop I was on my way to have surgery and he took down my info and let us go. When we got back into town we went to the cop shop to have get the police report but it was closed! Three Thirty on Friday afternoon and the cop shop is closed until Monday morning!!
I'm hopingthe guy's insurance will pay to have my car repaired because I don't have collision coverage on my car. It's 9 years old and has 188,000 miles on it, even though it LOOKED great and runs like a top.
OH YES, and I did I mention the MORON was ON THE PHONE?????
I'm just hanging around the house today; TC's been a good caregiver. Later today we'll take the bandages off, clean the incision and see what we've got.
Hopefully tomorrow we'll get some good news about the car. We were planning to drive it at least another two years...
