Collision Update!

Quick update. I was involved in a Head-On collsion on Jan 25th, which totalled my husband's Chevy 1500 Silverado. I injured my left elbow in the accident because I did what they call "Stiff Arm" the steering wheel to brace for impact..The night of the accident I was seen in the ER, and with my doctor 3 days later. Again with my doctor in March for the pain in the elbow. None of these times was an x-ray done and I was told each time, that it would take time to heal and do some exercises.

Anyways, for the last 9 months I have been dealing with pain and discomfort in the elbow. Granted, it is better than it was after the accident, but it just isn't getting better. I finally called and requested to be referred to a specialist and was x-rayed and attended Physical Therapy yesterday.

Today I found out that I had a tiny fracture in my left elbow from the head on collision. It only took 9 months! The Physical Therapist says that the joint has been and continues to be out of alignment. No wonder It never seemed to heal. Now, I have tendonitis and an appt for a MRI! When it rains it pours! But the sun always shines brightly after the rain, so I'm trying to think positive!

Pray for me!
