So...

We're on vacation in Sedona,Arizona, having a blast when my cell phone rings and it's Vincent, all upset and says someone just hit him from behind and smashed in his entire back end of his new car. Then he said he was hurt. *sigh* Nothing like that type of call to dampen your vacation. We don't have any cell service at the condo,so I don't know how he is yet. *another sigh* I told him to email me,but nothing yet. They always say no news is good news, but I don't think that works in this case. Poor thing, if it wasn't for bad luck, he'd have none. :( Hopefully, I will hear something soon. Tomorrow we have hiking and The Avengers to see, so I'm hoping for good news. I'll keep you all updated when I get some news.

Hugs, Patt

Update

Well, he got whiplash, but nothing worse than that. His entire back and butt are black and blue from the impact. Hopefully, he will get his car done next week. The other guys insurance is paying everything and more. :) This is good news. So when this is all said and done, his car still will look new. :)

Oh, I hope he's just shook up or at least there's nothing serious wrong. I can well imagine how upsetting this is for you, especially until you know for sure he's fine.

Have to say, though, you're in one of my favourite places. Sedona is very special and incredibly beautiful.

This is our third time here. It's so gorgeous. And there is always something to do.

We hope to hear from someone in the family soon. I'mgoing to have to kick their butts for making us wait and worry.

I hate that we don't have cell service here. It's up in the mountains. *sigh* I wish someone would email us and let us know he's all right.

I'm a little pissed off at his mom cause she hasn't emailed me to let me know how he is.

That's understandable, you're worried and waiting for news that's not coming fast enough...hopefully someone will contact you soon with an update!

That's great! I bet you're feeling a whole lot better now. I'm glad to hear he's ok.

Yup, this is his new car. He was almost hysterical when he called. He did it all right though. He called the police, he has witnesses and they're names and addressesand he's seeking medical attention right away. He said he could hardly move, his back was so bad. We're worried,dang it.

That's rough. Good that he has witnesses! Hope he's okay.

They didn't even need the witnesses. The guy owned up to plowing into the rear-end of Vincent's car right away. His insurance is being very nice. WE did tell Vincent not to sign anything until we're home,though.

Oh no - that's rough on you not knowing what's happening. But you've spoken to him so that's good. Big hugs babe.

Thank you. He's doing pretty well.

Oh, dear, I hope he's okay!!! Poor guy.

We hope so too. They told him it was old fashioned whiplash and that it would get a little better each day. But I'm going to have him see a specialist when I get home. Just to be sure.

old fashioned whiplash

That's pretty darn painful. I hope he does get better and that it's not more serious. I know I had that once and it lasted for weeks. It was miserable.

Is he going to get his car fixed or was it totaled? Poor guy.

6500 to fix it, but they're fixing it. I can't believe it. It's a 2001 so not sure of the blue book on it. Did you have to go to physical therapy or anything, or just suffer for a few weeks? This is all new to me. I'll take good care of him when I get home and baby him a little too.

No physical therapy, just lots of anti inflammatory drugs and heating pads. Nothing really works except time.

Oh, how worrying. I really hope he's okay. ::hugs::

Thank you. He seems to be doing pretty well.

Oh gosh, I hope everything is okay. It's always a scary thing being in a car accident, and how upsetting it must be for him to have his new car wrecked. I hope you hear from him soon with an update!

*hugs*

Whiplash is the final call on his injuries, but I'm going to have him see a specialist when I get back home. No signing off until we're sure he's all right.

I hope everything turns out all right for him. (And hope you're still enjoying your vacation.)

Vacation is great. Vincent is doing well too, so we have a lot to be grateful for. :)
