As you all may recall we were in an accident a week ago (you can read about it here if you don't know about it yet). All of my aches and pains have gone away. All except for one. My right shoulder still really hurts. This morning I called the Dr and went in for an appointment. It has now been determined that I hurt my Rotator Cuff in the accident. I now have physical therapy to do here at home for it not to mention that I'm not to do that much with my arm. For a person that is VERY right handed this isn't going to be easy. He even stated that I shouldn't put any "undo pressure on it whether it's lifting, pushing or lying on it". Well guess which side of my body I sleep on! That's right! My right side! Doesn't make for comfortable sleeping that's for sure. If it doesn't feel better in another 2 weeks I'll need to see a specialists and one that deals in car accidents. In other words a specialists that not only deals in this type of injury but one that will work with accepting car insurance payments. Oh...and since the visit to the Dr's my shoulder really hurts! He put it through the "ringer" during the exam. Guess it's a good thing to have thorough doctor...but dang it hurts even more now.
It really stinks being the "good guy" right now. We're having to pay for everything while the person that hit us, the one that has minimal insurance, the one that didn't get a ticket, the one that will probably not even lose a penny to his name gets off completely free! Once we got home from my doctors visit we got some news on our van. There was $8421.30 worth of damage done to our van. It is now totalled. After Sam gets home from school today we'll go over there and clean it out. Luckily the car dealership is willing to take that as a payoff so we don't own any more on that van. You see we just purchased it last May. The VERY bad side of this is that we now need to purchase another vehicle. We have absolutely no money right now. Our rent payment is due this week (1st of the month) and that will take most of Andy's next paycheck leaving us with some to live off of until his next paycheck. I know that we'll make it through. God is on our side.
I have spent most of these past hours just sitting here (because I'm not to do much with my arm) crying, feeling royally pissed, angry, upset, and hurt right now! I can't verbally talk about it without breaking down. I hate feeling this way but I guess it's a good thing to get it out. Guess that's why I find myself writing it down here.
