    Some of you have noticed that I've not been active here for the past few days. Allow me a moment to explain. On 8 March I was the passenger of a car hit by a drunk driver ... broadsided on my side. I was admitted to the hospital with a concussion, three cracked ribs, my right arm and both legs broken. Removal of shattered glass from my chest was difficult and some remained, resulting in infection. I was released today. I 'm still in casts, of course, and use of the keyboard is rather laborious. I will use this week to catch up with reading the posts, but don't expect many replies while my arm is still in plaster.

    Bless you, Jacinto. Hope your recovery is easy and fast.

    May Vicoden be your pal.

    In the meantime, just know that you've got friends here who pray for your comfort.

    Now, drop and give me 20. ;D

    Ineligible: I'm so sorry, Jacinto. That's bad. I hope this isn't going to drive you into penury as well. :(

    Do you have someone to look after you?

    You know it must be something serious if I'm wishing you well, but I hope your recovery turns out for the best. It hits a bit of a chord with me because my older brother, as much as I despised the bastard, lost his life to a drunk driver. You're still alive, and for that I hope you count your blessings. In any case, get well soon and rest easy.

    Yeah ... it must be! :eek:  But in all seriousness, thanks, Dee.

    Thanks to all of you who have sent me good wishes here and in my PM Inbox. Actually, I'm rather up, believe it or not. I'm thankful that I'm still alive, that my face and eyes were spared (forgive my vanity), and that the antibiotics have taken care of the infection. I know that I'm lucky, and I'm thankful for that. And I'm on some wonderful pain meds! (Not as wonderful as the morphine I was receiving in the hospital, but that's okay; I really don't need a monkey on my back.) Thanks again, everyone. It's a great feeling to know that people care!

    Here's a way to cheer you up: If you were in South Dakota, that drunk driver is now eligible for Congress!
