Car accident yesterday
Monday, September 09, 2013
Yesterday afternoon my DH and I were in a car accidènt along with his cousin and her husband. We got to his cousin's about 4:15. We were going to treat them to dinner since we were staying with them overnight for early doctor's appointment today. We had just gone a few miles when the car in front of us signaled he was turning right, Bubba was started around him in passing lane and the guy decides to turn left and around and smashing into us on passenger side. My DH was in front passenger side and I was in passenger seat in the back when he slammed into Bubba's big truck with his smaller truck.
Thank goodness I had on my seat belt. I was slammed forward but the belt stopped my body from going out, but apparently I reached out my right hand forward anI have a broken bone in my hand an I have some severe muscle pain in my shoulders, hips and upper back. I have a fiberglass splint on up to my elbow. I have to see a orthopedic doctor for a cast this week, I have to office this morning. This is my first broken bone. Everyone else was ok in our truck. The driver of other went to hospital by ambulance. I decide to just go by private car. I have so many things I need to this week. Hopefully the bones stay in good alignment so I don't have to have surgery.
Now to figure out what exercises I can do and how to use my left hand. There are some things I just can' t do myself and other things like typing this takes forever.
