I am very stressed out. Yesterday @ 4:30p.m. as I was driving home from picking up Hailey from school we were in a car accident. I was stopped at a red light when a drunk driver rear ended/sideswiped us. I was told by witnesses that she had been driving on the wrong side of the street and swerving all over the place and was going about 40mph when she hit us and never once put on her brakes. I never saw it coming, I was looking forward for the light to change and BAM!!! She was completely drunk, even had beer bottles in her purse on the front seat. The police told me that she had multiple DUI's on her record and arrested her at the scene. Her car was totalled but she appeared to be uninjured. Thank God that the kids are o.k., they were safely in their car seats and were unharmed, just a little scared. Hailey kept saying to the police "there was a big bump." My back and neck are sore but that's it. I am very thankful that I drive a big truck because that is what saved us. The police told me that if I had been in anything smaller we probably would have been killed. So scary! But now I have to deal with insurance companies, lawyers, etc... and I really don't have time for any of this. I have a splitting headache just thinking about it all. It's hard to tell from the pictures but I think the rear axel is bent, because she hit the rear tire pretty good and it isn't very straight anymore. I am so sad, I love that truck.
I am also very frustrated because Dylan has an appointment with the Neurosurgeon tomorrow for him to go over with me the report of his MRI he had in October. The MRI was to rule out a tethered spinal cord and I have a copy of the report and it clearly states that "the spinal cord is unremarkable in appearance." Now I know that I am not a Neurosurgeon but that sounds like it's I even showed the report to his Ped. and she said that everything looked fine. I asked his office staff if he would please be able to speak with me over the phone and he of course will NOT. I have to come into his office. I know it's because he just wants to bill my insurance company. I am sure his office staff thinks I am some crazy person but all I want is a little respect and understanding. I clearly told them that if Dylan had a medical reason to be seen by a Neurosurgeon then of course I would bring him in, but if everything is find then why am I going to waste my time. All I wanted was a call from the doctor saying why he wanted to see us. Dylan has seen every specialist in the book and some of those appointments have been completely unnecessary. This doctor is an hour away from us and has a horrible bedside manner. I would see someone else but it's not that easy to find a Pediatric Neurosurgeon. ARGGGGGG!!!
Well there is my complaining for today. I just had to get it all out.
