When it rains, it pours.

Well, today's the day I go get an MRI and see just how bad off I am.

Trying to keep high spirits. But sometimes fate likes to give you a bitch slap

Got up today with butterflies the size of bats on my tummy. Complicate that with the fact that I lost my insurance card. We all know how cordial medical professionals are when you DON'T have your card.

Then while driving to the office to take care of a few things before I go to the hospital, a ran something over on the interstate. Blew the left rear wheel out while doing 75 MPH. I almost wreck and nearly sh!t myself. Closer inspection revealed a crack and dent in the Mag wheel. Called Suzuki and it costs $348 to replace a GV Limited wheel. And that's my cost. And to top it off, all the wind from the passing cars made my hair look like a bird's nest.

Guess this is what's called a bad hair day. I'm trying to keep my chin up, but I'm afraid "fate" is gonna slap it down again. So I guess the best I can do is laff at myself![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img][laugh[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Sorry, just way bummed and needed to get that out.

Re: When it rains, it pours.

Yeah, but since I'm already looking for a GV V6 to dump into my Sam, I can tell you their are none, let alone the rarer Limited package with the gold alloys.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I've got bigger fish to fry right now.

Re: When it rains, it pours.

Would your insurance cover that like any other accident?

Re: When it rains, it pours.

I imagine, but I have a $500 deductible. So I would end up paying it and they would get to raise me rates because of it.

Re: When it rains, it pours.

Hang in there Tim - it's only a wheel after all & you weren't hurt when the tire blew. Try to concentrate on your health- don't sweat the insurance card thing - just bring one of your paycheck stubs to show where they took out for your insurance & any ins. paperwork you got laying around the house. The MRI will hopefully give answers so they can get you 'tuned up' in no time. Keep positive - it's more important than you may realize.

Best Regards,
Rebel Tim

Re: When it rains, it pours.

Thanks Tim

I guess this is the impetus to order new rims and tires and throw the lift on it.

Re: When it rains, it pours.

Always try to look at the bright side. I have the url to some online junkyards, I'll see what I can do about the rim, don't worry about that.

I'll also bet the MRI will come out fine. Take each challenge when it comes, and don't worry about tomorrow, it'll take care of itself. If the problem seems insurmountable, just cut it into little blocks and tackle each one individually, you'll be surprised at how much you can accomplish. Good luck with the MRI my friend, I hope all is well.

Re: When it rains, it pours.

Tim,
You have and will remain in my prayers until all checks out A-OK. Enjoy each day as they come and do not worry about what the next has to offer.
God Bless,
Steve
