Thank you Jo!!

I did go to the ER Tuesday evening and they felt everything was OK....kinda chewed me out for not seeing a Doctor about my recent adhesion pain....but I'm going to a Gastroenterologist on July 16. I hear you about the brusing....I have so many adhesions in my diaphram area, I hope I don't end up with anymore from this!!! serious repercusions from the wreck itself!! And Yeah, my poor little Dodge suffered the brunt of the damage!!!

Thanks so much for caring and being my friend!!!
