I'm Ok but...


Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to let you all know I'm ok & I may not post for a bit. I rolled over my SUV yesterday. Not sure how many times I flipped though? I'll explain later but everyone is kinda amazed...I ended up upside down but I got my seatbelt off & was opening my passenger door & then some guys came & pulled it open more & I got out. The first SUV going the opposite direction when it started was an officer going to work. Maybe he saw it more in his rearview mirror & made a report & I can get it later. The county sherrif was wonderful & said he thought I just hit some ice. I told him I didn't brake hard, or overcorrect in stirring...at least I don't think so. I remembered at the time it was happening not to do that...I could hear my dad telling me ha! They are saying my SUV is totaled and I did later go to the ER because I thought better to make sure than later be sorry...yes the ambulance checked me out there...and because I was starting to get a muscle tension headache & I wanted to zap it out before it got bad. They CTd my head & neck & only found degenerative changes in my neck...well it matches the back...and xray on my knee that is a bit bothering me is ok. They sent me home with a muscle relaxant, Darvocet & 800 mg of Motrin. I'm just taking the Motrin so far. Everyone says today I will really feel sore? Hopefully not. Chris is not very religious but mention liked 3 times about I really have an amazing guardian angel & I should go to church to thank him. BELIEVE ME, I've been thanking God like crazy & it is a weird feeling like I am obviously suppose to still be here for a reason but what is it? I hope I hear the message God is sending me? My bp was back to normal later last night but I think the shock still has not worn off totally. So, one week before Christmas...no car & still some shopping to do??? I know I got my gift from God yesterday. I was over 1/2 way home & it was about 3pm & it really was not bad at all. We got socked with the snow in the evening. I haven't heard my town but south is worse & a town about 30 min north of me got 9 inches. I have huge drifts outsidemy place now.

I have to get my St. Christopher medal out of my car that my best friend got me many years ago. It has protected me from some near misses from other cars before & I know it did its job this time. I hope it has not used up all its protection though.

Well, I'll post more later but if you can just say a prayer of thanks & then just one that I have minimal after effects & nothing serious I would appreciate it. Also, a short one for my folks as they were planning on flying home from AZ for the Holiday today. We'll see if flights are ok. I'll try to read my alerts as soon as I can also.

Wow, so glad you were not badly hurt!  That is a Christmas miracle for sure by the sounds of it.  I hope you don't feel too many aches and aftereffects.  Saying a little prayer of thanks now!

Damn I'm so glad that you are ok.  I spun two 360's across the median on Interstate 40 5 years ago in an Explorer that ended up in the oncoming lane, barely missed by a truck.  I don't know HOW I didn't flip over.  

I know you must be relieved and thankful, but still feeling a bit weird over it all.
