Ello/Truck Accident by peripatetically on 25 February 2003 10:48pm
Hi Ello. Just to finish up.

We never got to Regensburg, but we sure had our fill of foreign clinics and learned something about the medical system overseas.

Everybody who knew us for those two weeks, bought Glo flowers and candy to cheer her up andthey also sang, "For She's a Jolly Good Fellow", etc. Her trip was ruined in a way, of course, but she made the most of it. We certainly had to modify our style of travel that time. Plans set in stone are not a good idea when you're on the road, but some structure is nice. Always have an alternative.

Although it wasn't funny at first, and it wasn't funny from time to time during the trip, it has since made us chuckle. Glo was extremely fortuante that her leg didn't swell much and it wasn't sore or hurt her too much at all. If that had been the case, she'd had had to cancel and fly home.

When she called home to speak to her hubby, she didn't tell him she was hit by a truck or that she was in a cast. Only that she fell . She didn't want him to be upset. Later, in another call, she told him she was in the cast. (All he needed would be to have passed out at the airport when she came off the plane in a cast without warning him. He was older than she by almost 18 years.)

So that was it, except after she got home. LAwyers got into it and I was a witness with an international lawyer. The deli was responsible for the costs etc. Everything was settled within a year.

That's random, cool and funny in a painful way- ouch! :)
Thanks for sharing
