Update on My Car Accident


Monday, August 04, 2014




As many of you know, I was involved in a head-on collision accident with my van on June 7th. For nearly a month, I suffered from chronic neck pain that radiated down my right shoulder, arm and fingers. Prior to taking Physical Therapy (PT), I endured severe pain, limited neck motion, loss of mobility in my right arm, muscle spasms and numbness in my fingers.

After a month of PT, Iím no longer suffering from chronic neck pain. Iíve increased my neck motion and am able to use my right arm. I continue to have mild muscle spasms and the numbness in my fingers have spread up to my hand. Though, itís a slow process, Iím excited to be healing! In the next few months, I will be following-up with my Orthopedic Surgeon to see how Iím doing once PT is finished. The doctor and I are in great hopes of my continued healing without the possibility of future surgery.

A couple of weeks ago, I purchased another reliable vehicle from the insurance check that I received. I feel relief in knowing that transportation is no longer an issue and Iím able to drive without experiencing severe pain.

From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU so much for your continuous friendships, prayers and support throughout my healing process! IĎm so blessed to have wonderful spark friends such as you! You have made my journey easier with the kindness, concern and love you have shown me. I'm sending lots of love, gratitude and hugs to each one of you. Have a beautiful and blessed Monday.

    Monika, I can't believe I missed this blog. You went through this and never missed a beat. You have always been around and have been so supportive of everyone. I'm so sorry I wasn't here for you when you needed support. You are such an amazing person. Your strength, faith, and courage are a true inspiration.

    I've also been in a car accident. It's my left arm and shoulder plus into my fingers. I would love to now what has happened since your PT! I'm making plans now to have the EPI shots done in the hospital. Did you go through this? Thank you weather you respond or not. I had to ask you, though. emoticon

    I am so sorry to hear this but so glad to hear you are doing better, Monika, and able to get a reliable vehicle.

Our youngest Son was in a one car accident on Monday night and totaled out his PU. He broke his back in two place (L2 and L3) but they were clean fractures so no surgery required - only a back brace for 8 weeks or so. He is one lucky boy. I am thinking the accident involved alcohol but he is not saying. He just got out of treatment not too long ago. I wonder what his bottom will be? Keep him (Joshua) in your prayers.

Hugs, Sunny

    Glad to hear you are healing and no sense hurrying into surgery. Have you ever been told about laser therapy? I hear great things about that! Even one spf had one treatment for frozen shoulder and it worked, she is fine! PT or Chiropractors can do the treatment. Take care. emoticon

    Monika, I'm glad you weren't in worse shape. That's scary to be in any car accident. My accident in 2006 left me a bit shaken as I'd never been in an accident before. It was the other driver's fault. She wasn't paying attention to the light and smashed me on the right side, shattering my window and shoving me into another car. My car was totaled. I will pray for your continued healing.
