Yup I got hit by a car :/

So I had all this exciting stuff planned and part completed for you guys for this weekend including a video about nail stamping and some really cool make up looks.

Then yesterday disaster (yes more disaster) struck. One of my little baby ratties is really really sick. He has a horrible flu but is also really old so I am worried he is just not going to get better.

I worked from home to look after him and after I had finished work I went to a friends house to paint some warhammer (don't know what that is, look at my warhammer blog). It was nice and relaxing and I was on my way home feeling optimistic. I was crossing the street at the crossing and then BANG! halfway across the street I was hit by a taxi turning right into the street I was crossing. I flew through the air and landed on the road. I was lucky no other cars were around or it probably would have been so much worse. Some strangers called an ambulance and the police.

The ambulance took me to the emergency room and I was there for about 3 hours. After a bunch of xrays and pain killers it turned out that nothing was wrong with me except my wrist is sprained and my fingers are all bruised.

It could have been so much worse! The taxi hit my wheelchair on the right hand side and that wheel is totally ruined so I will have to get another one which is expensive :( but if I had been walking instead of in a wheelchair I am sure I would have had a broken ankle or knee so I think I got off lightly.

The most upsetting part is that because I am not 'majorly injured' the driver will probably only get a ticket, not be charged in court and he may not be held liable for the repairs that need to be done to my wheelchair.

At least I am alive!
