This is one of those posts that starts out with, "I'm okay, really."  
After an eight-year hiatus, I was involved in a car accident this afternoon. I do not appear to be seriously injured, but I know about soft tissue damage and will be self-observant just in case something shows up in the next couple of days.

Yikes!! Aw man, that's awful! Glad you're ok.

Thank you kindly. Yeah, it was not a whole lot of fun.

Thank all that is right and holy for Dale being fussy about your gas gauge!
I am so very glad that you are mostly okay!
Vicodin is your friend. What strength is it at?
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on June 10th, 2010 04:16 pm (UTC)
Hydrocodone-APAP 5/325, which I gather means 5 mg synthetic codeine and 325 mg acetaminophen.

Yes, many thanks to the appropriate powers for Dale's insistence!

Thank you, me too!

Glad to hear you're OK. Take it easy.

Thank you, I am. Today's program includes very gentle stretches, but not much more.

...there was this voice in the back of my head saying, "If you get the insurance, you won't need it."

I'm not sure whether I'd strangle that imp, or hug it flat for figuring out how to get me to buy the insurance. Possibly both.

But you seem to be all right, and that's what really matters.
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on June 10th, 2010 04:22 pm (UTC)
You're probably right about the imp. Thank you muchly.

I hope you feel better soon.
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on June 10th, 2010 04:23 pm (UTC)
Thank you kindly. Today is not better than yesterday, but tomorrow should be better than today.

Thank you kindly. Yes, I'm being careful and gentle with myself today, and including some very careful stretching -- not enough that I'd even notice it on a regular day, just to the edge of where the muscles feel tight.

Thank you.

Yes, I was chatting with a friend last night who'd worked in a hospital for several years and was married to an RN for longer, and he suggested ibuprofen as well. I took a couple last night before bed, and I've had two doses today, and it seems to be helping.

I am glad you are whole and being cared for. Even I would be cussing over what happened.
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on June 10th, 2010 04:26 pm (UTC)
Thank you most kindly. Yeah, UT ER is a good place to go, if you have to go to an ER.

And if you say even you'd be cussing, I guess I was justified :-).

I'm glad you're mostly okay!

*hugs you*

AAAAAHHH!! Glad you're ok, and take care of yourself!
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on June 10th, 2010 04:27 pm (UTC)
Thank you kindly.

Yeah, "AAAAAHHH!" pretty much sums it up, doesn't it?
laurareylaurarey on June 10th, 2010 04:05 pm (UTC)
So glad that you are OK!
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on June 10th, 2010 04:27 pm (UTC)
Me too! Thanks!

Didn't get on LJ last evening...glad you are okay and hope that you are feeling better soon! Keep taking the Vicodin and get well.
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on June 10th, 2010 04:28 pm (UTC)
So far today I'm doing okay with ibuprofen, but trust me, if I start hurting (as opposed to aching), I'll take the Good Drugs.

Thanks for your good wishes!
zemhitchhiker on June 10th, 2010 09:32 pm (UTC)
wow, glad you're okay!!!

*gentle hugs set aside for you to grab for when you feel up to them*
