Thanks to all of you who have called and e-mailed after my accident…

So many of you have wished me well. I am still in some pain in my ribcage (I’m  calling it “airbag shock”), but, in general I’m feeling much better.

Several have asked what caused the the accident and the best I can say is “I don’t know.” Essentially I had a blackout seizure and when I finally realized where I was I was 30 miles down the road having hit two cars and a power line. When I noticed a police car behind me and I pulled over, I had no idea what was going on, or that the whole front of my car was just about gone.

Somewhere in the course of the accident I lost my Superfocus glasses… I terrible loss for me. We don’t know yet of the insurance covers the loss as part of the accident.

Anyway, they’re not likely to let me drive again unless they can figure out what causes the seizures (apparently I’ve had a couple of other ones, not while driving, over the last couple of years. Most of these include lapses of time that I don’t remember, either.)

So my computer and I will continue to travel the world… but I won’t be getting out of the yard unless someone else takes me.

  1. Oh, I didn’t know about the accident. I was a bit busy lately and didn’t read much. Anyways, I wish you the fastest recovery! Take care, mate!!!

  2. Reblogged this on The Last Of The Millenniums and commented:
    In a way, we are ‘family’.
    It is a problem that I have in that I do not have enough time to get around to reading and commenting on all the blogs that I’d like.
    Bill – here is wishing you a speedy recovery if belatedly.
