Car Accident

The last couple of days were awesome. Today… not so much.

First, my doctor wanted a couple of “odd” moles looked at by a dermatologist to see if I have skin cancer. The dermatologist doc cut off two moles for testing. Her unofficial thought is that they are merely “abnormal” and not cancerous. She told me not to worry. So, I’m not. Or, at least, I’m trying not to worry. I’ll know in a couple of days.

Next, on the way home I got rear-ended. We were stopped at a turn and I was waiting to go. I heard a loud horn and suddenly, CRASH. At first I was stunned. My brain wouldn’t work. When it finally got moving, we pulled into a parking lot. The woman who hit me was the nicest person ever. She admitted fault to both me and the cop who showed. Someone behind her honked their horn, startling her into slamming on the gas.

Neither of us was hurt. Both of us were shaken. Her huge, steel Yukon XL was undamaged. Morpheus, my car, was damaged. A lot. I’m terrified of the thought of what her truck would have done to me if it hadn’t been from a full stop. Morpheus goes into repairs tomorrow. She has good insurance. She’s admitted fault to the cop on the report. My insurance is on top of things.

It could have been so much worse on both accounts but, right now, I’m breathing a sigh of relief and having some tea to relax me.

Goodness! That's a scary thing. I'm glad no one was hurt. Tea, and probably kitty snuggles, will hopefully help the nerves.

glad things weren't worse. If you have any pains or twinges over the next couple of days, go see a doctor, though -- just in case. It'll be covered by her insurance in any case.

I'm speaking from recent experience -- I was rear-ended last Wednesday and it totalled my Honda (hit from behind, then pushed into the jeep in front of me). I've had a few twinges in my back and neck, so I'm going in, just to make sure.

What everyone else said, and know that your feline contingent will do everything they can to keep you immobilised under them. I mean, offer you comfort. Yeah.

Glad you're otherwise okay :)

Sorry to hear it dear. I've been in a few crack-ups myself, so I sympathize.

Argh... that's no way for your day to go. I vote for at least three most excellent weeks in a row now. Glad that no one was hurt, but still what a drag.
