Another update...

First off, thank you to everyone who has stopped by and wished me well since my accident. I feel truly blessed by the outpouring of well wishes and prayers. I tell you, if it isn't one thing then its another. First sick up till Thanksgiving, then a week later, I wreck and total my car. I am slowly on the mend. Still much pain in my back, still some difficulty in my breathing, still some sight and balance/falling issues that are new. They tried to do a new MRI this week but the hospital could not do it so we will see when I can get back in with the neurologist.

But we have made some progress. Lucked in on a fantastic deal and my wonderful hubby bought me a lovely 2008 Buick Lucerne. It is "White Diamond" with "Platinum" leather interior and so many bells and whistles. It looks like the one below.

I am finally feeling more comfortable driving. And this car makes it very easy. I haven't finished my tree yet or wrapped a single gift...our house won't be decorated in all it's glory this year, but the tree is looking lovely thus far and hopefully I will get it finished tomorrow. We have all the girls gifts and I plan to wrap them all tomorrow and finish the tree. (At least the nativity was the first thing up and finished!) I still have to find my wonderful husband something else for Christmas from me and pick up some socks for him from the girls to go with his other gift from them. He goes through socks like you would not believe.

I did manage to finally order my Christmas cards, and sorry about the poor etiquette BUT they are preprinted with our names, no hand written message this year and I actually addressed the envelopes on the printer. But they are finished and going in the mailbox in the morning. Well, I am out of here and off to bed.

Again, thank you everyone, but please continue your prayers...I do still need them. And please continue to enjoy this Christmas of 2008 and remember the reason for the season.

I was worried about you...I came over hoping you had posted an update. I guess on the bright side, you got a new "sled" out of it! Hope you get back to normal soon! I'm headed to Fuquay to see some family for a few days, back for a few more & off to the beach, so if I don't make it back over, hope you have a wonderful Christmas & that you'll be on the mend!

So glad you're starting to feel better! I've been thinking about... kept checking in but no updates! I love your new car- I'm sure it's an "easy" ride. Also, love the new family picture (Christmas card pic?)! Your girls are so beautiful! Hope you have some more updates before Christmas but if not Merry Christmas and I hope everything keeps getting better!

It's good to hear you are feeling better. You have sure had a lot to deal with and I'm so sorry about that. Love your new car and really love your family pic and your HAIR! Cute! I was noticing the difference in each of you from your older picture.
Merry Christmas! Donna
