TRIP 2012

Update #09 - June 01st
Baton Rouge, Louisiana
00.00 miles (00.00 KM)



I was really thinking that I was going to head out this month but I'm not sure right now. All of the oral surgeries are over and I'm getting used to the new dental appliance but something happened a couple of days ago that will probably cause a delay in the start of this upcoming trip.

About 6:30 PM Wednesday night, May 30th, I was on my evening walk around the neighborhood when I got hit by a car. I was not even a half mile (.8 km) from the house when it happened. I was at the intersection of Baird and Chandler. A van was pulling off of Chandler and turning south onto Baird when I got hit. The driver who lives down the road from me said that either he or his daughter didn't see me. He was heading west and the glare might have blocked me from his view. I was walking north on Baird right on the edge of the road. There are no sidewalks in the area and next to the road was a ditch.

I thought that the driver was going to miss me but he swung wide and I got hit by the front part of his van near the passenger side headlight. The force of the impact flipped me backwards and I think I did a somersault and I hit my right knee hard on the pavement. I landed sitting down on the pavement. My right knee got scraped up pretty good and the palm below my left thumb got scraped up.

The police got called and they called the fire rescue squad and an ambulance. Just on the safe side, I got put on a backboard and a neck brace was put on. At the emergency room, a dozen x-rays was taken of my right knee and lower leg because I was experiencing pain from either a strained ligament or muscle. They didn't find any parts of my knee or my lower leg broken (Praise ADONAI). They told me that I was pretty lucky. To be on the safe side, I will be trying to see a recommended orthopedic specialist next week to make sure there is no internal damage in my right knee.

I'll try and add a new update every two weeks along the way so the next one will be around Friday, June 15th. June 15th is my 56th birthday.
