    That is a lot of snow for April! I hope it warms up soon, misskitty.

    Wow Miss Kitty, sending thawing thoughts your way.

    Missy, go see the doctor and lick this thing before your trip. It is NO fun to be sick in a foreign country. Been there done that, was petrified.

    Archie, hope you are feeling better soon.

    I know this thread is past the posts about car accidents and rental cars, but I wanted to weigh in -- make sure your insurance covers rentals! Mine didn't, I hadn't signed up for it, and several years ago I was in a minor accident that was my fault, so it was my insurance paying for things, and because I didn't have the rental insurance I was begging rides to work for the weeks my car was in the shop. I immediately added rental insurance so that doesn't happen again. It's not much money, and it's worth it, car rentals aren't cheap.

    Thanks everyone... I snagged a doctor's appointment this afternoon, so fingers crossed.

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    Quick update, here. I had an MRI Sunday and was walking around without crutches yesterday when I got a call from my doctor saying it showed a hairline fracture (which they should have caught with the original x-ray 3 weeks ago) so I'm going in today for another x-ray and probably a cast - although I still need to be able to drive, so I'm hoping a knee fracture doesn't require one. I'm about to go swimming right now in case it's my last chance for a while. My appt. is at 1:30 so I'll come back this afternoon to let you know how it turned out.
    Count your blessings!

    With any luck maybe you'll just end up with a knee brace and not a cast.

    Miss Kitty Thanks for showing us the pictures. They were awesome I loved the first one it kind of reminded me of the movie Sleepy Hollow and the Sci-Fi channels movie Tin Man.

    Woo hoo! No cast. The new x-ray today showed the fracture is already 70% healed and he said to keep doing what I've been doing - rest, crutch, and wrap. I'm allowed to swim and garden (carefully). I can stop taking the anti-inflamatories if I want to. If I want a brace instead of wrapping it, I can do that. In 3 weeks he will decide if I need PT or not, but I plan on working on that on my own (flexibility exercises). Best possible news.
    Count your blessings!

    That's great Gut. Even though you are still in pain and not completely healed, at least you don't need to be in a cast!
