Not all is well in Hansen Land, but it could have been so much worse.
I was on the bad end of a pick-up truck / pedestrian collision last Thursday 12/15. The good news is that I did not hit my head, lose consciousness, nor am I paralyzed. Also good: my dear border collie Phoebe was not injured. The bad news is:
3 broken ribs left front
2-3 broken ribs left back (heard conflicting reports)
2 hairline fractures right pelvis (1 anterior, 1 posterior)
hairline fracture sacrum olla
Amazingly, I was released from HCMC yesterday 12/18 (a testimony to my overall fitness I dare say). That said, it is an uphill path to full recovery; still lots of pain and limitations in mobility. I am walking with an offset cane. I am particularly concerned with regaining full mobility and strength on my left side. Broken ribs send out loud shouts, as you can imagine.
I am receiving amazing support from Steve (of course) and friends are chomping at the bit to help out.
Good thing you are a reader: many good books out there that I don't have time to read ...
Love...to read ...
