Holy Christ... Why did he get charged and arrested for crossing the center line? It was obviously not a felony DUI. Hate to hear that...

I spy, with my little eye, either scissors or a hemostat.

Was transported to another doctor visit yesterday. Wasn't very sure who this doctor was, but found out he was one of my ER doctors that took care of me when I was first admitted to the hospital. He was also the doctor who noticed my ruptured spleen, lacerated liver, broken rib, and lung damage. I also found out that the damage to my right lung was more severe than I had thought as it had actually collapsed while I was in the ER. It recovered quickly, but did collapse nonetheless. He listened to my breathing and said everything sounded excellent and that I was lucky as all my damaged internal organs are self-repairing and should be better after 6 weeks. This includes the ~1" long and 1" deep laceration to my liver. So all is well on this side of the computer. My dad is pushing me pretty hard on the physical therapy which brings the pain, but it is necessary for my recovery. In doing so, I have regained 100% side-to-side motion in my left hip, and gained additional bend in my knees to get closer to 90 degrees. Hope all of you guys are doing great and enjoying your weekend.
Quite amazing the human body, isn't it?

Well guys, it is another week and I thought I would give you guys another update on my status/progress. I have been working really hard during the weekend to make as much progress as possible. It seems to have really paid off. I am now completely dependent as far as getting in and out of the bed into the wheelchair, transferring to the john, and transferring into the shower bench seat. This is a big step from where I was.

Today, physical therapy has come and gone and I was able to accomplish a new 'skill'. I was actually able to stand up in the walker (with assistance still) and walk/turn around in the walker. It is a lot of work due to not being able to bare weight on my legs yet, but I was able to do it. I also have full range of motion inside-outside of both of my hips now. Degrees of bend in my knees are: right = 88 degrees and left = 85 degrees. So I am still progressing at a nice rate. Looking forward to things progressing this week to see where I end up. Hope everyone out there is having a great week and I will keep you guys updated as always as new things come up.

So, the 60's vintage F150 with which you collided head-on, is it the same one visible in the background here, which seems to maybe have a slight tweak to the bumper?

Haha. That was not the same truck. I did get to see a few pics of the truck, and my Audi definitely put a hurting on it. I was surprised.

Thanks for posting these up because it's a nice reminder the potential a car in motion has in store for you if it goes wrong, regardless of how safe your car is. Definitely a brutal crash and injuries, but surely it could have been worse. So did you both cross the centerline? just you? how'd that happen?

We were both charged with crossing the centerline based on the State Troopers investigation. It was on a blind hill and we didn't see each other until it was too late.

For obvious reasons... I have come to hate them as well.

Apparently my memory was fuzzy on that section of road. There was a marked centerline. About 100 yards up it was not marked. *shoulder shrug*

Yup. The Zorro scar was the compound fracture in all its glory.
