Hi all. I'll reply once here with all the details to avoid typing them over and over.
Last Sunday, while driving home from the in-laws, I was hit head-on by a Mustang passing illegally at the top of a hill. I breaked and attempted to pull to the side, however there was a deep ditch. We hit more or less head on.
Both airbags went, and both my fiancee and I were wearing seatbelts. They saved our lives.
First on the scene happend to be a RN.. second on the scene was a volinteer fireman. they were angels. in total, 2 ambulances, 4 police, and 7 fire engines came. It took them 1/2 hour to get me from the car (I'm not a small guy) and the door needed to be cut open. The engine had shoved the dash forward and wrecked the steering column..locking the car on. (That was not a good sound)
We were raced in seperate ambulances 30 mi. to the closest hospital. (Isn't being in the boonies fun?) 7.5 hour later.. 30 x-ray's each plus many needles and IV's and we were released.
My fiancee suffered a broken collar bone, major bruising across her shoulder and belly, and bad lacerations from her face to body to foot. I suffered a broken wrist (typing sucks), a broken ankle and severe belly bruising. Othe scrapes and sprains..but they are minor. Because both wrist and ankle broke, I'm nowin a wheelchair.
We are both thankful to be alive. Thank everyone for their patience and well wishes. I've missed you guys. In the weeks ahead, please bear with me. Typing with one hand sucks, but I am thankful I can type at all!!!
