A very significant day. Maybe.

Two years ago our daughter Tammy was in an auto accident. An Uber driver turned in front of her at a stoplight and caused Tammy to run into her. At first we thought it wasn't such a bad wreck, but it soon became apparent the Tammy's hip was injured. She had surgery, but about a year ago she started having a lot of pain in that hip. Turns out the first surgeon didn't smooth the bone and now she has pain from bone rubbing against bone. All this time they've been waiting for a law suit against Uber to be settled. They're in mediation today to see if an agreement can be reached or if they'll have to go to trial. All this would have been bad enough if Tammy had not already been dealing with her other very significant health issues. I won't go into the details...so many of you have read my posts and have been so wonderful with your prayers and concern for her. Her new surgeon won't consider a second surgery on her hip until her other issues are resolved. And if the Mayo Clinic couldn't help her, we don't when that might happen. Now whenever they go anywhere, she has to ride in a cart or whatever since she can't walk very long without a lot of pain. The settlement will be nice and can be a good savings account. But all the money in the world can't give you good health and relief from pain. So, I hope all goes well today, although these things take a lot time. Thanks again for your prayers and concern for my sweet girl.

I am so sorry that it has taken this long to be resolved for Tammy. You're certainly correct there is no amount of money to have good health and be free of pain. Continued prayers for her.

With her health like it is, a nice amount for the future would be a blessing.

Oh, I pray she gets a GOOD settlement. You’re right, money can’t replace the health that’s been depleted but it can help ensure a little security if things reach a point where she can’t work any longer. I just hate the idea that insurance companies won’t settle until a lawyer gets involved and 25%-33% of the settlement goes into THEIR pocket.

Tammy already had to retire on disability. And she had such a good job with a really great company. She loved it and was very successful...it was so hard when she had to quit. She hates being retired.

That's so true. Money doesn't help when you're in pain.

This one strikes home because I can't walk far; and I've gotten two different sets of opinions about my condition. I hope that things work out well for Tammy and she can get some relief from the pain she's in. Things can be so complicated; and I wish it were possible for her to get the surgery she needs ASAP. Continuing to have her in my thoughts and prayers.

I know you can understand how it is to not be able to walk much. If they could just figure out how to help her other issues, then she could have the hip surgery again. Thank you so much for your prayers.

All of that sounds like a lot to go through. I hope things get better for her and your family. That lawsuit won't fix her but at least it will be something for her suffering. I hope she get's that second surgery though and it helps.

That is terrible. Talk about justice delayed is justice denied, it seems the legal system has no care that they are dealing with people's lives
