No comparison with you accident, injuries, life-changing trauma, etc., but our experiences paralled yours in a few ways. Our daughter was hit by an uninsured driver in a stolen vehicle around the time of your accident, and her car was destroyed beyond recognition. However, unlike you, who was surrounded by air, she was surrounded by airbags, and survived with amazingly few physical setbacks.
How old was the kid that hit you? Our fun guy is 22, and we also just got the final sentence: full financial restitution (med. bills, car replacement) or 6 months in jail. Why is his punishment more severe? Amazingly, he was sober...(And of course we don't think it was severe enough.)
Always sending healing thoughts your way,
Janet

Ours too. The judge quoted the sentencing guidlines, and because he had the minimum insurance, it wasn't quite like no insurance. If he had, he would have lost his license until he had completely repaid all expenses incurred by me over this incident, including lost wages, and time and mileage to and from the doctor.

Full financial restitution OR 6 months?? Should have been both. Or more.

Ha! Cute one, Jim!

Terry, what a bummer of a sentence! Like all of us, I was expecting a sentence with a little less sugar on it. You're a good man, Mr. T, and it'll take more than a punk kid and a wimpy justice system to keep you down. Best of wishes and healings to you and yours.

Hey Terry,just saw your (square) post.The main things to check that I've learned 'bout squares:Look from the inside round the corners and sides where to roof would connect to the side walls for water leaks.Check round the entry doors (Heavy rain may get in to the top of the doors).Also these square's need the roofs Kool sealed at the seems.(Do a better job than me .My Kool seal job is pretty sloppy .Check the window seals (tend to shrink),check to window open knobs,as they are cleaply made (I've replaced four of these #^%* things . I love my Squaregosy,It tows great,I avg 10.8 m.p.g @ 65 m.p.h.Best of luck to ya! Brian P.s. The only way I'd sell or trade mine would be if I find a near perfect 34'.....

fulltiming

We lived full time last year from June until Dec in our 83 30ft MH. Part of that time was spent in our backyard. Our house air conditioning cratered and the house refridgerator quit within a week so we decided that we could live in the MH while we decided on new appliances. We liked it so well that we just stayed until we had to move back to the house for all the kids coming for the holidays. Roy is ready to move back into the MH now. The only thing that was a problem for us was all of Roy' med. equipment. He has a cpap, nebulized and oxygen consentrator that all need to remain set up and operable. We hooked to house satelite with long cable. We were sorta crowded but it was certainly liveable. We love our Mh. We are on a hunt now for a new generator so we can do some traveling this summer. Limited income and health restrictions make this a very serious decision.

I am sure that you will enjoy your fulltiming if you can have enough income to not have to work full time so you can travel or stay close to family as your heart desires. We all tend to collect too many things. When we face health issues , things seem to lose much of their importance. Food shelter and love are all we really need . Love is the most important and you two seem to have love in full measure.

Best of luck to you in your new adventure.

Kay and Roy

Look what followed us home:

1974 Sovereign International, center twin. A/C is original Armstrong, and blows cold. Univolt is toast, and of course it is in a horrible spot to get to, under the bathtub inside a closet.
The seller said the water heater didn't work, and he was right, with good reason: It ain't there...

I walked yesterday!

Okay, so it was only 6 steps, 3 out and 3 back, but I walked that distance without my cane or other walking aid (other than my feet, of course).
The Pain/Torture guy (aka physical therapy) said I was making very good progress, but not to overdo it. If it hurts, stop, if I get shakey, stop.
He also told me not to go climbing on the roof of any RV's. Wonder where he got the idea I might be doing that? Could it have been the large silver trailer occupying most of the driveway? Nah, I bet he says that to all his patients...
