    Hi everyone, I haven’t visited these forums in a very long time. I see some familiar names that I’ve missed. Hope everyone is doing well, all things considered these days.

It may be minor, not sure yet. My doctor told me this type of injury can take six weeks to heal. I am tentatively planning on going for physical therapy and massages - - That's per my doctor. I hope I can go to Mariposa rather than Merced. Merced is a two hour drive each way.
    At least I finally got the Real ID process done on Tuesday. Now I just wait for it to arrive in my mailbox.

    Do the physical therapy! They should be able to work it where you do most of it at home and just have to back for checks and adjustments maybe weekly. Hamstrings are slow heals but hopefully yours is on the quicker end.

    He knew at the time how lucky he was. He was pushed into the car ahead of him pretty hard and his car had front end damage. His trunk was essentially gone. He went and got checked out to ensure he did not have an injury that would manifest in the future. He was sore for a while but nothing that lasted. I think lasting injuries like what your wife has are more common than we realize. I hope if your wife was in the car this time it did not aggravate or worsen prior issues, both physically or mentally.

    Had a friend several years ago get rear ended while he was at read light. The car that hot him never even braked. Airbags deployed and he was sore but no real harm done. The loaner car they gave him was a Camry. I happened to own a Camry at the time. His first day leaving work with the loaner he tossed his laptop on the passenger seat. A light on the dash said "Passenger Airbag Off". He panicked and called me since he had just been saved serious injury from airbags. The airbag detonator did burn the sleeve on his jacket but he was very glad he had airbags in that accident.
