So I'm back... sorta

I think...

Sorry I've been rather quiet on here lately.  On Fri. the 20th I was taking a walk near a park during my lunch break when I was struck by a car.  I ended up fracturing my nose and my right humerus.  I was sent home from the hospital the following Monday, but the meds they had me on made me very sick.  They finally allowed me to stop them yesterday, so today is really the first day I've felt more human.

It was a 20 yr. old kid who hit me and the insurance companies are saying it's No Fault on my end since I was a pedestrian.  I have to see a plastic surgeon tomorrow regarding my nose, which just has a sort of bandage covering it at the moment (can't wait to get that off).  I also got a few stitches in my upper lip and had to have a sort of metal hammer and ball put in my right arm (which was constantly in a sling until earlier today... so glad that's over with).  I'll have to go for some physical therapy soon regarding the arm.

So all in all it's been a crazy week and a half.  I'm still trying to get used to using my arm a bit more for things like typing on the computer, but it's a bit hard.  I want to thank everyone for their hugs, cards, and prayers over this time.  They really mean a lot and have picked up my spirits a lot.  I really do appreciate it.
