|Angie in hospital...Day 9, the first day|
she got to wear clothes (well, scrubs)
instead of the hospital gown.
Angie, her family, and myself would like to sincerely thank everyone who came to visit, who donated money, sent cards, flowers, well-wishes, thoughts, prayers, and who helped out in any way. Your kindness and thoughtfulness have been amazing and have really helped everyone keep in high spirits. The family feels very blessed to have such incredibly kind people in their lives. We would also like to thank all (ok, only MOST) of the doctors, nurses, therapists, techs, and staff at Methodist hospital for taking care of Angie the past couple weeks. Most of you were incredible, caring, and gentle people who would help in any way possible (except hooking visitors up with morphine. Come on, I was hurting too...some of those chairs were uncomfortable after being there all day with a bruised buttocks) and also listen to Angie's ideas and thoughts about treatment.
We are still in limbo (and could be for a while) in regards to insurance payments and what they will cover as far as Angie's van and wheelchair. With 9 cars involved, and almost as many insurance companies it sounds like it is going to be a big screaming match between them. All of your donations are especially beneficial to the family during this time of waiting and uncertainty. It has allowed the family to rent a ramp van for the next month for Angie's doctor appointments and just to have in case there is an emergency. It was a pretty unsettling feeling knowing that if something went wrong, there would be no easy way to get her to help, so although renting a van is pretty expensive, we felt it had to be done while the insurance fight continues.
Donations are still very welcome and appreciated. Every little bit has helped.

We would also appreciate you keeping a look out for a late model, ramp van in good condition and reasonably priced (unless someone wants to cut Angie a really good deal on a MV-1). It would just be used for transportation at the moment, but the hope would be to eventually have it modified for Angie to be able to drive. If you happen to run across anything, please let me or Angie know. We will look into and consider all leads and offers.
Thanks again, everyone...we really appreciate all the support everyone has given.
