Thinking of you...and you...and you...and all of you!

Some of you are probably wondering why I haven\'t been in touch lately. Others of you know that I was in a car accident on Saturday, October 24th. A man stopped for a blinking yellow light instead of going through it cautiously, like he should have done. I hit him, my air bags deployed, and my van got totaled. My right leg didn\'t come out of it very well either.

I have had to spend a lot of time keeping my right leg elevated to prevent swelling, so I haven\'t been able to be on line very much.

I got many bruises in amazing colors. Most of those bruises are very faint now. A bad scrape on my right leg got infected also, although it\'s much improved.

What I didn\'t know until about a week ago, is that my right foot got fractured-- in 2 places. I knew that it hurt but I didn\'t know why. 2 sets of Xrays indicated a lisfranc injury of the middle of my foot. But it took a cat scan to finally show that my foot was fractured as well. They are going to put metal plates in my foot and who knows what else...

I\'m going in for surgery tomorrow morning (Wednesday Nov 18th) and I\'ll be staying in the hospital overnight. Although I have to deal with a needle phobia, and overall anxiety, I\'m pretty much resigned to all of it now. A lot of people (including many of you!) have been praying for me to get through this. It has helped a lot!

Thank you all for being my fans & friends. I really love Desktop Nexus, it is my happy place, and I appreciate you all!

PS. I\'ll try to stay in touch. Puppydawg/Roger will be up on what\'s going on with me. I think. I have to check with him on that! :)

UPDATE: December 23, 2015: Well, my "Overnight" Surgery, turned out to be a Hospital Stay of 3 weeks!!! But I\'m back home now, and doing well, although I\'ll be wheelchair bound for awhile. Later today I\'ll be writing a new Journal Post about this. :)

Dear Elaine- I am so glad to know that other than your very well needed foot and van, those were the only damages and not your life. I come here not so often as you know but when I do you are always on my screen with kind words and wonderful wallpapers. I...   Read More >>
