Stay Cool! God Bless

{September 30, 2016}   What a DAY, yesterday was.

What a day we had yesterday. The whole day was a good day
in-spite the incident with deer. It began with a wonderful breakfast at home. We then drove 40 minutes to my Physical Therapy appointment where I am fighting muscle atrophy. After we drove 2 hrs and 40 minutes to go to my pulmonary appointment, we ate lunch on the way at Arby’s. This is where I received a shot of special medication (done every 2 weeks) and met with my Pulmonary Specialist”s Nurse Practitioner (once a month unless there is a problem with my condition). We were there a while.

After, it was time for dinner. Very relaxing with great food for a low cost at Cheddar’s. $27 +tip, not bad. We had to stop once for gas in between appointments. Anyway, after dinner we drove to a few locations just to look around.

We began home fairly early, but it got dark pretty fast on the way. About 20 minutes from home, this HUGE Buck decided to jump into the road. Immediately, Ralph slams on the breaks as soon as he saw the deer. I looked up, my body swung forward, held back by the seat belt, my glasses flew off my face, my cell phone flew onto the dashboard, my body was in the air for just seconds. My arms hit something and legs were held back after my feet were jammed into the floor board under the dash. My left foot, the toes were bent leaving me wondering if my toe was broken. I was numb, in pain, and in shock. Ralph didn’t fly anywhere, just sat there as he tried to slam on the breaks holding the wheel. The car stopped.

I could see the deer with it beautiful horns and stout body. It’s hind side hit center front and the head side hit the left front side. Crushing the body frame, but the under frame may be stronger than expected, we were able to drive it home. Not sure, the hood won’t open. At first Ralph couldn’t open his door. But with his strength, he manage to pry open the door, so he could get out an look before we decided to drive off. He opened it enough to squeeze himself out of the door. The deer took a leap in the air and flipped to the left side of car and than got up and ran off.

We prayed before driving off. It was shortly after I could feel my toe. The pain was still there. After arriving home, Ralph spoke of having a headache and was stiff a little, but no pain. The only mark on him is a blood mark on his left arm where we assume he hit the steering wheel. I took one Tylenol before bed.

This morning Ralph walks as though nothing happened. Me, I am not dizzy anymore and my vision is not blurred anymore, but I am still stiff and sore. We called our insurance, working on estimate etc. turns out our deductible is $500 we don’t have. Yikes!

Thankfully we have Aaron’s old car, which will be Matt’s future first car. Not sure how all this will turn out, but I am not loosing hope. Trusting God for healing and provisions.
