SOB.

Recommended Posts

Well, guess what I had happen to me early Monday morning? Some incredibly intelligent (note sarcasm) guy decided to check his GPS after turning in front of me. So I T-Boned him. Have been in the hospital for the last few days with a broken leg. Am home now, but damn this hurts...Broke both bones in the bottom half of my right leg, in the same spot. So doctors cut into me and inserted a metal rod through the bone marrow of one of them. So its set, and should set the other too, without the need for a cast. Have lots of pain meds though. Feels kinda funny...One bone isn't set, so can feel it moving. Doesn't hurt, but feels funny as heck...

 

Anyway...Thats the update for my life. Last we knew the police hadn't decided who was at fault, although I'm pretty sure it was the other driver. He admitted to not watching the road. As to why I'm certain it was his fault and not mine. The road I was driving in is actually in plans to be turned into a freeway, so its north and southbound lanes are divided from eachother. Where the lights are is going to be the offramps in a couple years. But so the two lights to get on Northbound and Southbound are linked together. If one is red, the other is red. He claimed to have turned left off of the road I was traveling on, which had a green light, then looked down to his GPS. So, if the Northbound lane he pulled off of was green, my Southbound lane should also have been green for me, and therefore when he turned onto the other road in front of me, it should have been red for him. (Confused yet?) Anyway, this is my reasoning through why it couldn't have been me who ran a red light. And if I'm not to blame, then my insureance, I'm hoping, should stay relatively stable. And if dickhead (Who, BTW, walked away from that accident) gets his insurance hiked up in price, well, it'll be a small win for me I guess.

Jeez, that blows, man. To be honest, I don't know what it means to get 'T-Boned', though I'm well aware of normal 'boned' for the most part.

 

And getting metal rods inserted into your bone? Yikes. Glad you pulled through the accident, though, man. How long is recovery scheduled to take? I have yet to break anything, but I know it took months for Neko to recover from his knee-shattering incident.

 

... Sorry, it probably doesn't help to ask questions like that. Would you ever want to play any games when bored, if that'd help? Like, if you're near your Wii or something we could maybe play some Brawl. I'm afraid I don't have much else I could offer, unless you have something in mind.

Yeah, pretty much one car makes the I part of the T, and the other makes the - part of the T. And they meet at some rather fast speeds...

 

Anyway, if I could get up to get to the Wii, that would be a viable option. ATM, I'm stuck watching Netflix on my Xbox, or playing Splintercell Conviction. Not that I'm complaining as that is a great game and Netflix is teh awesome. But it doesn't leave a lot of variety atm...Could play Dead Space 2, but I don't really want to play that while I'm alone and imobile lol, and I don't think its a good game to play around my mom.

 

Oh and as for recovery, am not really sure. Maybe around 6 weeks...But really I don't know.

Trying to 1-up me huh? :D

 

Just yanking yer chain, but it's a bummer to hear that. I know all too well what you're going through and now and in the near future.

 

You can look at a LOT longer than 6 weeks for recovery man. That's just the time until the bones are healed enough to start bearing weight. You're going to be in physical therapy for a while after that.

Yeah, that was exactly what went through my mind when I woke up in my car. "Yes! I've beaten OV!"

 

And yeah. Today everybody was over for my brother Daniel's birthday, he is home from overseas in the army. Oh yeah, and he is a jackass...He hasn't actually said 3 words to me since he got here. Complained plenty though. Anyway. Somebody left the kitchen faucet on. Being the only one home, they had all left to some irish pub for Dan's b-day, I had to get up and hobble my way in there to turn it off, and then hobble back to the couch. Suffice it to say, I laid there for about 20 min, crying. But am alive.

 

Oh yeah, I haven't wanted to shoot somebody more than whenever I try to stand up...Stupid jackass looking at his GPS instead of actually driving his freaking car...

If I even had an idea where you live, man, I would gladly come over and make that stupid driver and your water-bill ignorant family feel justice through the sting of a thirty-pound tuna. That I would slap them all with. After letting it lie out in the sun all day.

 

But it seems like you're taking it well so far. Either that or you've put up a facade and all. Remember to try to look at the positives of the situation. You don't need to do any chores that would require walking and standing, for example. And you can game all day. Just try not to laze around too much. Don't want to let your immobile stance add to your width n' all. Maybe wheel your arms around for exercise. Preferably when your brother is within range. : P

Went to see the doctor today, post op checkup. Got the staples out of my leg, which wasn't as bad as I was worried it would be. Got to see an X-ray of my leg with the new addition of the titainium rod inside it, which honestly looks kinda cool. Anyway. Word from the doc is 4 more weeks of no weight on my leg, 12 weeks until I can get back to work at least. Still no word on how much I'll get for a new car, which is ok as I'm not taking classes anymore this semester. But so, will be bed ridden for a bit longer.

Well, you can look forward to being able to relax for a good while, eh? This might actually be a good opportunity to catch up on stuff you might've been unable to do if your pre-accident lifestyle didn't offer enough free-time. I mean, take that as you will, not trying to ruin any good vibes you might've already built up n' all, yo : P

 

And smooth goin' with that titanium rod, yo. Just gotta get some missile launchers, a machine gun, and grappling hook installed and you'll be set for some real cyborg fun!
