COULD HAVE BEEN WORSE!!!
Those are the words I have been hearing from family and friends.. If you read my last blog post, you read how I had so much favor in the sale of my house and finding
an apartment..Plus moving into the apartment and being ready to fly to Florida for a much needed rest etc.
THOSE STATEMENTS WERE AMPLIFIED...I moved on a Thursday, was getting a little settled on Friday and Saturday..Sunday
went to church and out to lunch with my friends..but...on the way home.....................
I HAD AN ACCIDENT TOTALING MY VAN..I won't go into details on how it happend, only to say, I was being watched over ..and
those words IT COULD HAVE BEEN WORSE...were very real..
I didn't want to be transferred to a hospital to be checked out, so my friend marie drove me e after i filled out the police reports..
My Children insisted I get checked out anyway,..so i went into the ER they took x-rays of my knee and shoulder that was swelling up quickly, also did a CT of my abdomen, it was bruised also..PTL..no broken bones..just severe bruising..however, The
Ct. showed something I need to follow up with a vascuilar specialist..about something they found but not related to the accident.
Could be heading off a problem in advance.."a blessing in disguise"??? you might say.. So again
and again, my Lord has been there for me..I was not able to leave on the next day for my trip, as planned, in fact It turned out that I also had to go back to the ER..after 48 hours I had exstreem vertigo and nausea...caused by the jolt in the accident..So
after an MRI to make sure I did not have a concussion, or other head trauma, I was given an IV, anti-nausea and vertigo medications..which I took all week.
Another blessing was with my travel plans..southwest
airlines ended up changing my flight arrangements, not once but twice!..Here is my additional good news...I was able to fly to Florida on tuesday the 24th, a week later than planned..but I'm am here in the sunshine and beautiful weather..sorry to hear Wisconsin
is cold now>>>
I'm staying with my neice and nephew, will work with Glen for the Octoberfest this weekend and then the following week we will be going to Orange Lake Resort.. at a time share and we will enjoy more sun
and water time..PLUS...I will have a couple of days with my sister Donna and my neices Kim and Kris...I haven't seen my neices for a couple of years..so this will very enjoyable..
My Thanks and praises to my Lord and Savior
Jesus..for the love, grace and favor He has been showing me...
I am surrounded by loving family, and friends...
One word of advice...don't ignore what you may think are not serious
injuries..get checked out if you have the misfortune of an accident no matter how minor you think it is..IT COULD BE WORSE !..
