Happy birthday to dalious!

Medical
Temperature of 98.0 is holding. Phew.

Unfortunately, just walking across a room is enough to trigger coughing fits! So I'm still down for the count.

Elayna
She walked to school yesterday for the first time since the accident; she'd been nervous about that crosswalk, but she did just fine. And she's feeling well.

Still no call from the schmuck's insurance company, but a call from the ambulance service. Is that normal?

Also, I took pictures of her broken glasses for the lawyer.

Google Wave
*blink* Whoever invited me - thanks! And now I have some invites. Who's interested?

EDIT: Adam's on, too, so we have a Gojirawitz Wave. We are officially the coolest sovereign nation in Watertown.
ALSO EDIT:
Me: "I have Twittered that we are talking on Google Wave. I keep adding layers of geekitude. I am a geek parfait."
Adam: "And everybody love geek parfait."

Link Soup
* Disability blog carnival: call for submissions.
* 20 best signs at the National Equality March.
* Halloween costume for when badlittlemonkey and rintrahroars's baby ever shows up.

Daily Science
A new way to scan for diseases, including cancer of the stomach or colon, using a remote contol ‘spider pill’ camera with moving legs, has been hailed by scientists in Italy.

Plans
Same as yesterday. Mark brought me sufficient and proper yarn for that shawl, and we have the new Pratchett, so I should do pretty well at keeping myself sitting/resting.

This Google Wave thing sounds kinda cool!
14th-Oct-2009 09:49 am (UTC)
Google wave? Yes please if you still have some!
14th-Oct-2009 05:41 pm (UTC)
If you then get a code to give out, PM me? *looks adorable*

More important to take pictures of her bruises and staples for the lawyer. And any scarring from the staples, if it's not totally hidden by her hair. And keep track of all expenses.

You don't want to talk to dude's insurance company if you're going to have a lawyer, so them not calling you is good. The lawyer will know whether and when it's advantageous for you to talk to them.
14th-Oct-2009 12:17 pm (UTC)
this is good advice. Don't talk to shmuck's lawyer, do get your own
14th-Oct-2009 02:51 pm (UTC)
Yep, we've got one. She told us to give the insurance company her phone number when they call, but they haven't...
14th-Oct-2009 10:45 am (UTC)
Wave me please. Pretty pretty please!

My gmail is on my profile page under the IM section...

Sorry to hear that you are still sick, glad to hear that there is at least some recovery.

Good for Elayna making it past that scene of her accident.

And if you still have a Wave invite, I'd be interested.

If you still has invites, I'd like to try this Google Wave Thing!

I was up at 3:30.
14th-Oct-2009 12:12 pm (UTC) - make sure Adam and Elayna do this with you
DOn't talk to their insurance company other than to give them your lawyer info.
Refer the ambulance company to the lawyer.
Take photos of all Elayna's injuries, cut, abrasion, bruises, the staples, glasses.
Did her backpack or clothes rip?
Any pool of blood photos? Have those in your submission packet to lawyer as well.
Keep a diary, any pains she has, the phobia of the crosswalk and how she had to do a dry run, anything psychological or emotional that is occurring due to the accident. Is she sleeping okay?
All of this.

I'm telling you this from experience.
14th-Oct-2009 02:46 pm (UTC) - Re: make sure Adam and Elayna do this with you
**nods**

Insurance co: we know.
Ambulance: we did. :)

Haven't taken pics of all of the injuries, but they're documented in the ER report...
14th-Oct-2009 02:50 pm (UTC) - Re: make sure Adam and Elayna do this with you
Pictures speak more than the ER report for visual impact of what a careless person did. Makes the insurance company wince a bit.

Good job on keeping on top of it all despite the plague.
14th-Oct-2009 02:51 pm (UTC) - Re: make sure Adam and Elayna do this with you
'k. I have some cameraphone shots of the head wound pre-staples.
14th-Oct-2009 12:29 pm (UTC)

My copy arrived yesterday. A friend and I are joking that we're now canon for Discworld - she and a friend are opening a restaurant in the next couple of weeks; the name? Night Kitchen. And I'm Glenda. Will have to get a pic taken with the sign clearly visible... *grin*

J and I are enWaved!

Please add me to the queue of those seeking Wave invitations. ;)

I'm not sure I would be comfortable with the concept of a medical device inside me without a leash attached, but I suppose I might change my mind should I ever be in the market for an appointment with an endoscope.
14th-Oct-2009 07:54 pm (UTC)
The Halloween costume is just WRONG on so many many levels...
14th-Oct-2009 09:04 pm (UTC)
I'll take a Wave invite if you have any left. (Though I suspect you don't at this point.)
