    Good luck with the recovery. I thought 1 month of recovery was long for my surgery.

    Wow! Ronny, I was at the doctor when you called, and due to your work, didn't want to bother you if you were driving...

    Sorry to hear of the accident although I am happy that it wasn't worse than it was.. Let me know if I can help you out in any way...

    I do wish you a full and speedy recovery!

    So sorry to hear that.
    Hopefully you can get fixed up quickly.


    You have to be soooo careful at the TS nowadays (not saying you weren't).
    Now more so than ever, you here of someone getting hit every so often at the Truckstops....some even get killed.
    A lot of these trucks are racing through the truckstops.

    Some of these are the same ones, but you guys will get the idea anyway.
    It's a huge problem.
