I'm alright, though a little shaken and I have a HUGE left foot right now. I was very blessed that our old family friends the Schmidts were nearby. While Mom and Dad made their way up from Vegas, Roberta came to be with me at the hospital and let us stay in their home until we could go get everything out of my car. Thank goodness for good friends!
Roberta also brought me my camera when the officer gave her all my things. Yes, I took pictures while being cared for at the hospital. And again today when checking out the car (I didn't get to see it until this morning since they moved me straight to the gurney). My sister said I'm weird. I call myself a photographer :)
No fractures! YAY! The foot IS rather swollen, though, and the heat from the airbag caused some cuts and a burn on my right arm.. It's a little hard to tell in this picture.
I'm sure the staff thought I was a bit odd, but I explained that I was a photo student and they were chill. Plus, I think they were just glad I wasn't freaking out. This guy is taking some x-rays.
It's a million times better to have a friendly face there. I think I could have handled things on my own alright, but I'm SO glad I didn't have to. Thank you Sister Schmidt!!!!

|And the car... it's not looking so good.|
And the day after. I really am hoping I'm feeling up to going to the strip to do some pictures I wanted to do for assignments this next week... if not... I guess I could always use this blog to show why I don't have them!
