good news. i saw an orthopedist, and the shoulder isn’t going to need surgery, after all. i was so relieved; almost started crying.
got the bill in the mail from the hospital. $12,898.75. i’m trying to get that slashed or segmented, as there’s no way i can pay that right now.
the driver who hit me didn’t carry insurance, so it looks like i’m footing the bill for everything, even a new bike.
my shoulder feels strong enough to ride a bike again, but i don’t want to screw it up further. official estimate is 4-6 weeks until full strength.
i’m angry that the driver didn’t just wait five seconds for me to pass. i’m mad she didn’t follow the law. i’m so mad at her, but i’m less mad every day.
i’m too tired to hate her.
i just want to start working again so that i can get all of this behind me and move on.
