Update on Me

I finally went to the doctor. After a discussion Big Ro and I decided to take the pictures down. We think it was too graphic and he does not like looking at them. I hope I do not look like an elephant man for too long. Know what I mean? I went to the doctor yesterday and my greatest fear was confirmed. I have a concussion. I cannot remember most of the accident anymore unfortunately. I can just describe the aftermath. I saw our car yesterday and I cried. My heart breaks so much. I loved that car more then any other material possession. The good news is we are getting a car rental right now. Until a settlement is reached we are driving a 2008 PT Cruiser.

Rogelio took the day off of work today to take care of me. I am feeling very weak, nauseous, dizzy and sometimes I ache all over. The doctor ordered me to take 3 ibuprofen every 4 hours in combination with excederin with the pain. I finally went and got all my medications and am feeling some kind of relief. I am going to try to keep blogging. It relaxes me but please realize I am not going to be myself for at least 4 weeks.

Big Ro is pretty banged up now too. His sinuses may be damaged. We will find out by Monday after the doctor reviews his xrays. So life is ok right now. We are alive and grateful for our children. We are kind of testy but that is understandable. I am going to lay down again as just typing is wearing me out. Hope all is well with everyone else.

Try to get as much rest as possible. I am so sorry this has happened to you guys. My sister (Gina) and her family were in a very, very, very bad car accident in 2006. I know how hard it is to get back into a normal routine. Try to slow down and take it one day at a time. It may take a while, but soon the shock will fade. You are all still in my prayers and thoughts.
