2 for 2

Published by at 1:16 pm under Fall and Winter 2007

Dayna was rear-ended yesterday while she was sitting at a stop light. Her major complaint is a stiff neck. She has a KIA Optima which is uni-body construction. Her bumper is destroyed & she can’t open her trunk so there may be some significant damage. Chris is taking it to body shops today for estimates.

My dad has had two skin cancer surgeries in the surgeon’s office in the past two weeks and will have a major one Jan. 11. I am flying out on the 10th to help nurse him. The next one will be on his chin and several other places. Daddy will probably not be able to eat solids for about a week afterward. Two new spots have become visible since last week. They seem to be popping up so frequently any more there’s just no end to it. His PCP will determine if he has the next one under a local or general.

Richard has his final appointment for the disk study he is in on the 23rd. I fly back on the 22nd and we plan to leave for points west on the 24th.

He was denied health insurance due to his disk replacement so will begin the process to get in under VA. He talked with them and found because he is a Vietnam vet they consider them all to have been exposed to Agent Orange and will provide insurance for many of them. It’s quite a process but he’s hopeful he’ll be accepted.

    Wow, your family has had a string of bad luck. Let’s hope the new year is better!

    Keep us updated on all your problems–Dayna, your dad, Richard. Let’s hope that your are having all your problems at once, and then everything will be “coming up roses” for the rest of the new year.

    Hope Dayna’s neck is okay. Cars can be fixed, but we sure don’t want any residual health problems for her to have to deal with.

    Safe travels.

    I am sorry to hear about that! It stinks! Tell Dayna we love her and to feel better. How is Chris doing since his accident?

    He says he doesn’t ache anymore and Dayna says her neck feels fine. So, at least, they don’t have to worry about their health issues. Chris told us a man at his work totaled three cars in one week and none of the accidents were his fault. Sounds a little fishy to me though stranger things have happened!
