Update on the Accident and the stuff related to it!

Update on the wreck stuff: My car is still totaled, I keep wishing it would pull in the driveway and give me a big hug all shiny and new, but no, that hasn't happened. The Insurance Company is playing hardball with us and STILL not giving us a fair amount for the value of the car. We got an attorney to help us with the medical issues and I feel better about things. I started going to a chiropractor and he told me that if I wasn't preggo, he would do all sorts of scans and MRI's and X-rays to find out the problem with my headaches, dizziness, vertigo and my leg which still hurts. BUT, since he can't almost all of my visits will just be massage therapy and they will just document the issues REALLY well to make sure the insurance company knows what they WOULD do if they could. So for me, this means twice weekly (or more) visits to the massage therapist for medically prescribed massaged....ahhhh. I went for the first one today and I'm feeling SO TIGHT from it. It was rough, it's not too relaxing because I have SO many knots and junk. BUT, she said it should begin to ease the tension which is causing the headaches. I just want to feel normal again, that's all. Is that too much to ask? With my leg, they did some massages on it with this machine and some lotion meds and he said that because of the location of the injury, the pain and swelling is going up into my knee and that's why it still hurts walking on it and putting pressure on it. I wish we could do an xray to see whats going on with it, but I guess for now this will have to do. That's all, I'll keep you posted.

So what is happening with that stupid lady? are you getting a huge settlement from her? I am so glad that it's because of pregnancy that your recovery is slow, and not just because of the injuries. I'm sure if you were not prego, you would know exactly what is going on with every cell of your body and recovery would be faster. So it's kind of bitter-sweet I would imagine? It still sucks so much that you are going through all this crap. I am really looking forward to this coming year for you, I bet it's going to be the best year ever, you really deserve it! :)
