Trailer Hitch through Windshield

Yesterday on the 101. I was taken to the SJ Regional Center – Trauma Center. The 10-20# trailer hitch hit me in the shoulder. Amazingly, I only have lacerations, bruising, and a whole lot of pain…..but I am okay. 6″ further toward the driver, and I would be dead. My poor angels have always had to work overtime. I am truly blessed. Rock Knocker is with me, and the RV is at the windshield place.

  10. Those halo roof antennas do have a dual purpose, happy to notice you made it to a safe place & hospital staff have bandaged you up – in the meantime we will await the next step & recovery progress. I believe you will be 100% before the PCB project is complete… : ) .

We will survive through all that has been thrown at us…even that serious storm that will hit the coast Thursday night (When I’ll happen to be driving north on 101 and 880 myself). Take care.

  26. Dear Kate, I can’t even imagine our world without you. And this gave me a scary glimpse. I see you strong, healthy and resilient. Rest, and know you are loved. I’m sending hugs from our mountain to yours.

  27. Thank you, dear Soaring. This very early Thursday morning, I finally have a glimmer of hope that the pain will eventually go away, because finally, it is diminishing. I do have some very bright and dark and large purple coloring on my upper arm, shoulder, and chest. But the pain, which has been excruciating is less, and if I don’t move, isn’t at all. That makes me very happy.

    I am so happy for all the well wishes, distance healing, thoughts and prayers sent my way, and believe it, it is working. I’ll be home later today, after shopping for easy fixings for meals for the next week, and should be 100% in a week or LESS. I am feeling very blessed by my angels and goddesses at Wed/Thurs’s bewitching hour.


  28. You are an angel yourself, Kate. Be gentle with yourself and recover fully. Prayers and blessings.

  29. I am recovering and being careful. I don’t seem to have a choice in that. LOL. I am better, but it is much slower than I thought it would be.
