    Wow! I'm glad your injuries are not severe. It could have been much worse. Rest up and pamper yourself. After a shock like that you will need it.

    Glad to hear you're not hurt too seriously. That could have been much worse.

    Thanks everyone, for all the good comments and wishes ... and yes, the nurse too! It was my first injury accident in a vehicle in my forty years of driving ... so ... if I maintain that average, then my next accident will not happen until I am 95, if I still have my license by then.

    I am even more sore, black, blue, red, purple, green, and yellow than I was Friday night right after the accident. I have severe bruises in places that I did not know were injured. I am more stiff, and still swollen in many places. My chest and rib cage hurt from the airbag. The airbag smoked and made the car smell like it was on fire ... so in my instant self-preservation, I beat my front door open so I could escape. It was not until I was out that I realized the smell was the airbag. I have everything photgraphed for future use ... maybe when I am done, I can post it all here for entertainment.

    Thanks again for all the nice wishes,

    Jim Whitiney

    Hi again Jim. You probably are already familiar w/this, but just in case you're not. Don't sign off on a release for a settlement for your injuries until you know that you are all right. You want to be protected in case you have something that stays around and pains you.

    I think when you post them we will be even more amazed at your survival

    With so many cars on the road a moment of absent mindedness can lead to an accident, so I don't really blame other drivers unless they are drunk or systematically careless. It can happen to anyone. I was involved in six or seven minor accidents but was at fault in only one of them.

    I hope you get well soon.

    I'm glad you are okay Jim. You should have a few drinks and just take it chill for a while.

    Really enjoy your posts.
