PT Bruisers

Yesterday I had a collision with a PT Cruiser at the Barret/ E. Oak Intersection. I don't actually remember much about the accident, but eyewitnesses said I flew over 15 feet through the air.

By the time I regained consciousnesses I was lying face down on the pavement and there was a pretty good crowd around. I was sort of embarrassed to find my face was in a puddle of my own drool and blood but given the circumstances I don't think anyone thought less of me.

The first thought I had was, "I think my leg is broken." My second thought was, "Crap, I think I am going to miss Luke and Katherine's wedding." Both sentiments proved to be true.

The whole neck brace and stretcher in the ambulance kind of freaked me out, but the EMT's turned out to be cyclists themselves and began debating the merits of toe clips.

In all, I am thankful for the Lord's provision in protecting my life. The next six weeks of recovering are going to be rough, but I trust in God's sovereignty.

"So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. Fro the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal."

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Michael,
Max sent me an e mail about what happened. I was so freaked out!
I had a feeling that you would have typed about it in your blog already since it happened Saturday so I'm happy to see that you are in one piece.
I am going to miss you at work.
Where are you going to be staying at during your healing time, school?

I have been staying with my brother since the accident, but I am going to try move back in the dorms tomorrow. I see a specialist this week and will find out how bad the damage is.
