HBM -

Is there any way to contest? My MIL was in an accident last year, in which the police report was vague and her insurance said it was her fault. She hired a lawyer, took lots of pictures of the damage, and they went to court and the judge sided with her, so MIL's insurance reversed their decision and it got straightened out. Maybe there is something that can be done? I will be thinking about you!!!

if there is any chance that this person might claim damages, definitely get a lawyer!! they can also tell you if your best bet is taking it to court or pleading no contest (if it will pretty surely be called your fault, I think in GA you can do this and they don't add points to your license) Call a lawyer!! Then go get margaritas!!!!

Ugh. They're saying I pulled out in front of him, which totally looks true. I just honestly didn't see him. I certainly wouldn't have pulled out right in front of someone with my dd in the backseat, yk? I was completely shocked when he hit us though b/c I didn't even know there was a car there. I'm thinking he must have been coming really fast, especially for a parking lot. There was no honking, no skid marks, no squaling of breaks-just BOOM out of nowhere. He hit us with enough force to push us up on the curb. IMO, that sounds a little fast for a parking lot, doesn't it? I'm not sure if there is a speed limit posted there, though. I think he should have been going much slower. But then he could argue that I should have seen him, right?

I just wish I could replay it to see for sure what I did.

My insurance will pay for any medical bills for him and to fix his car, thankfully.

hi mamas...i'm a lurker around here...but saw the memphis ues and had to asnwer. my dh and all his family live there (well, dh lives with me, but the rest of them live there...hehehe). there are lots of fund things for families:

Mud Island: my top pick...they have a replica of the mississippis river the kids can play in...so fun!

botanical gardens...beautiful

redbirds game...if you like baseball...the stadium is so nice and small, since they are minor league.

shelby farms: tons of land with trails, parks, playing fields...very nice

down town: the peabody hotel...its really fun to wath the ducks come down (they live on the roof) on the elevator and walk out and swim in the fountain.

enjoy the visit!

also wanted to introdue my self a little bit. i have run many a mile in my life and enjoy it very much. not so much right now bc our weather is terrible and i dont' acess to a treadmill or gym. but any nice moment dd and i head out for as long as we can stand (shes 13 months...loves our jogging stroller). shes my only running buddy at th emoment...so its been very nice to read posts from other running mamas...i miss the fellowship!

Anybody ever taken their kids to Memphis? I think we're going to go for a few days of Spring Break.
post #764 of 938
Aww, that stinks, Paige. : It can't hurt to call a lawyer, though and ask some questions about whether this would be worth something to pursue.
post #765 of 938
I think as long as insurance will take care of it, I'm just going to let it be. Honestly, I just don't want to have to deal with it. Pretty lame, huh?

Welcome abharrington! Thanks for the info about Memphis. It does sound like a fun place for the kids. So glad you decided to delurk and join us.

That just sucks, I'm totally bummed for you. A similar thing happened to my mom when someone rear ended her on the freeway. They said she stopped right in front of them which was totally not true but for some reason they went with the other persons story and not hers. If the guy does decided to sue for additional damages or anything, your insurance will hire a lawyer to take care of everything for you.

eksmom - glad you're getting better and the babe is doing well. aren't yeast infections a common side effect of antibiotics? don't suffer too much, you've done enough as it is and yeasts are not pleasant!

((((((((((((((hbm))))))))))))))))) that is just terrible.
post #768 of 938
(((((hbm))))))) i hit someone once who also "came out of nowhere!" my car was totalled, but i was wearing my seat belt and was fine. the other car had barely a dent but the driver refused to get out of the car w/o a paramedic. the medics came and put her in an ambulance all the while warning me that she was completley fine and that not to be surprised if i didn't get sued. i was in college. it was finals' week in spring. sure enough, by summer, i had been sued! a.w.f.u.l. i hope this day and this week gets better for you.

bouquet of s for Paige

Wow, I'm surprised because I thought when there is rear-ending that it is always the fault of the person who did the rear ending - because you are supposed to maintain safe following distance, etc.

I don't know much about yeast, but I think you are right that they are common after abx. I have only ever had it one other time in my life and got that one to go away by inserting some garlic. Itchiness is my main problem this time so I was waiting to see if it could be a reaction to something else. Question - if I were to bring this up with my OB how would he diagnose it?

hellllooooooo ladies!

In Dulles airport on last leg of trip. It was amazing. I am so glad I went! More later, along with photos from my morning run on Saturday, thinking of y'all.

Hugs to HBM!
post #771 of 938
poppy - I can't wait to hear!

Eks - are you doing kefir or probiotics? That should help your good bacteria get back in control...

HBM - another big I agree that if the insurance is taking care of it and if there is no police report or ticket, then I would do the same thing!

RM - I am glad that you got it scheduled sooner rather than later, and I'm glad your DH is being supportive!

okay, must stop serial posting. Can yall tell how bored I am at work today

my mom and I both thought the same thing about being rear-ended - but apparently that's not set in stone. I've also learned that if you're driving and swerve to avoid something (say an animal) and crash your car it's your fault, but if you're driving and can't avoid something (that same animal, perhaps) which causes your car to lose control and crash it's an accident of the universe and not your fault. So sometimes what you say can determine what happens with your insurance, even if it's pretty much the same thing.

When my doc prescribed abx last week, he told me that if I get 'the yeast' that I should just call and they would call in a rx for the anti-yeast stuff and there was no need for me to get seen again as it's a common side effect. hoping it doesn't happen.

Eks, I don't know if it is okay to use while pregnant (Dr. Jen? Taos?), but this is my surefire way to beat the yeasties: Tea Tree Oil!!!!! If you are itchy on the outside, you can take a peri bottle filled with warm/hot water and add 3 drops of tea tree oil, then spray yourself off while sitting on the potty. It totally clears up the itchies for me while I'm treating the infection with probiotics. I also use tea tree oil suppositories to treat the yeast infection, and it works great for me. But like I said, you'd better check with a doc to make sure it couldn't hurt the baby in any way.

I get a yeast infection EVERY time I take abx. But now I can catch it when it first starts so I never have the symptoms very badly.. this last time was a little tougher because I couldn't take ANY supplements with the specific abx.. no vitamins, minerals, or probiotics.

how does this sort of yeast infection differ from a diaper rash yeast infection? DS once got a yeast diaper rash and i tried to treat it naturally for the longest time and it became a really, really bad scene. when i finally took him to the dr and got the rx cream it cleared up really quickly and i felt bad that I made him suffer while trying all those natural remedies for so long.

eta - i've actually never had a yeast infection (knocking on wood) hence the questions in case i get one this time.

When Emily had yeast infection diaper rashes, the doctor said to get Lotrimin (like for athlete's foot). We did that and plain yogurt slathered on her tushy. The yogurt applied topically worked a treat! We also did a probiotic in her bottle. Harder on a nursing baby to get in them, easier for an adult. I hope it clears up soon!

I got a little run in. 3 was on the schedule, but I hoped to make up my 9 mile long run from the weekend. But, got interrupted for a glass of milk at 4 miles and just wasn't able to get the rhythm back up. This is one reason I despise the treadmill at home! Followed closely with the boring treadmill at the gym. I can't wait for better weather, so I can run outside again! Sadly, it is snowing right now.:

I have been trying to drink kefir/eat yogurt or both every day, limiting sugar intake and upping the probiotics. I have also been using apple cider vinegar solution externally as well as yogurt externally (that's nice and messy ). Oh, and trying to stay aired out as much as possible, although when you're pg and coughing that's not exactly practical unless I want to sit on a piddle pad all day long.

The kind of weird thing is that the itch started out vaginally but seems to have left that region and traveled upwards a bit. I keep hoping that means it's a mild case or almost gone.

I don't know why but this is a topic I find horribly embarrassing. : When I was in jr. high and totally clueless about my body, some of the more popular girls would say some really mean things about other girls who supposedly had infections of some type. You know, things like "don't sit where she sat" etc. I never even knew the facts of what they were talking about but I seem to have internalized the shame.
post #777 of 938
Wow, almost two whole pages since I checked in this morning. Y'all are chatty today!

for HBM and RM.

Today is "stretch and strengthen" day so I went to the Y for weights. I wanted to swim too, but really needed to go to Costco, so I skipped the swim so we could get home in time for DS's nap. My hip is still pretty sore today, so I've been icing frequently and hoping it clears up. I have two 4.5 milers and one 7 mile run this week, plus track practice on Wed (usually about 3 miles total). I never called the doctor last week because it cleared up and felt fine, but it seems to have flared again. Ugh.

Allegedly it was supposed to rain/snow here today. It's been sunny all day long and I've seen about 5 minutes of flurries. We were supposed to wake up to it, now they're saying it's coming tonight. Agh. Stoopid weathercasters. I really need it to not snow enough that I can't run outside tomorrow. I don't know if I can handle 4.5 on the treadmill at the Y. Besides which, it would have to be an EARLY trip to the Y since DS has a recheck at the doctor for his ear infection.

I'm tired....but I need to shower. I wish I could skip it and just take a nap, but STBX is coming over to spend some time with DS later and I feel the need to look as good as possible whenever I know I'm going to see him just to show him what he's missing out on.

HBM~ I am so sorry about the accident. That totally sucks!

I wish I had more time to post, but obligations are eating up my internet time. I'm reading along and missing you all.

RR: I managed a really slow 5 miles today. My body is trying to adapt to the extra time I'm trying to add to my workouts.

NRR: Baby R is mobile!! She started crawling yesterday, and she is trying to pull herself up on the coffee table already. It's time to get some baby proofing done. I can't believe how fast the time has gone.
post #779 of 938
blech. my battery's almost dead and I forgot to bring my cord to work. hence not very much time on the computer.

HBM -- eek! about the accident.

I joined the YMCA today. I don't have a treadmill and frankly I'd rather take my girlies swimming than invest in a treadmill of my own. And so I did take them swimming today. Tomorrow shall either be a nice ski or a treadmill run with dd2 in care there.

must.run.

Hi Mamas,

Im soo sorry about all the illness wreaking havoc for so many, and (((HBM))), that just sux!

RR: I got to the gym yesterday a.m. for 21 miles on the bike and 2 miles uphill walking fast on the TM. Today I ran 2 miles in a cold headwind (I hate windy running!) to the gym and did weights for an hour until I was quivering and nauseus (mission accomplished). Im thinking of swimming tomorrow a.m., but would need to go at 5am, so dont know if that will happen

Yeast: I think tea tree would be safe, but Id stick with garlic. The thing about yeast is, if you have external symptoms (a yeast infection or rash anywhere) it stems from an imbalance internally. Definitely focus on rebalancing your intestines. Cut out as much yeast loving food as you can for 2 weeks while you do probiotics. Your vaginal flora is a reflection of your intestinal flora, and babies guts are colonized by your vaginal flora (they get a nice big mouthful of your vaginal flora as they pass through), so if your gut is tipped toward the yeasty side, so too will your vagina be, and then babe will have that tendency too.

RR: Im feeling lonely in this training. I want a team, so that I just have to show up and do the work-out my coach gives me, like in college. There is a running group here but they run at times and places that dont fit my schedule. This tri Im thinking of is in June, and the prospect of working so hard, I dont know, like, Im pretty friggin tired right now and Im not looking forward to waking at 5 to swim, but if Im serious about training,then thats how its got to be for the next few months, which is why I wish I had the team. Im thinking I should just do a 10k, which would be relatively easy/straightforward, but then, when I think about how awesome I would feel physically and emotionally to finish that tri - it would be awesome - plus its on the same day as Dh's graduation, so Id do the tri and then we'd go to this party. Can one of you just move to my town and train with me? Tjsmama ?
