The Redness is Back ....

A trillion, billion Thank You's to everyone who sent thoughts, wishes and encouragement during the past seven weeks ... Words will never express my thanks!

Briefly ...

11am - crossing a 3 lane road, lights red, road clear, my mate two metres ahead of me - out of nowhere a car hit me, driven by a woman too old to be behind the wheel.

Sustained - ten fractures, punctured lung! Went through 5 hours surgery, six weeks in hospital, home now with pain, PTSD, gratitude and a strong resolve to recover ...

I am blessed, extremely fortunate to be alive, no brain injury (welll ... the juries still out on that one) ...

For the rest of my life, I'll go off every time I pass through a metal detector ... how funny is that ;~)

A plethora of stories await to be told ... photo's too!

Thank YOU Everyone xO xO xO

WOW! What a terrible accident. Hope you are recovering well. If the plates and screws are in your arm, hold it near your midline and you won't set off the metal detectors at the airport. Legs are a different thing... glad you are back!

Holy crap!! It is truly a miracle that you're okay. that would be awful!
btw, if your radio isn't working, just stand next to it and move your arm around until you get good reception...LOL
I'm glad you have a sense of humour after all that :D
Lots of hugs to you
xoxo
and I know you don't have brain injury, unless I'm comparing you to myself and the jury is still out my brain....lol
make sure you take a medical form everytime you go to walmart so you don't set the detectors off...
so glad to have you back!
