    LOL Christy. Everything is going really great actually. Tonight I went back to the er pain in my ankle and they stuck me on crutches and told me that I have pulled (maybe torn) ligaments in my ankle. My wife is doing awesome herself as she is a real trooper. This may be a little personal but she was actually able to get out of bed tonight and go to the bathroom (with a little help from cannedmulder). So why do I think everything is so great??? WE'RE ALIVE!!!! I'm thanking God every second for sparing us. I'm also thanking the greatest auto manufacturer in the world "JEEP" All of the safety mechanisms in our jeep worked to perfection and I do think that they played a vital role in our survival.

    Glad to hear you and your wife are doing better.

    I like the fact that your Jeep (American Made) held up and the Honda that the Japs praise so much for best crash test rating did not. Hitting a moving object is totally different then bumping a stationary wall in a lab. For some reason people don't see it that way.

    In all fairness otty, (thank you very much by the way) the car was older. (88). What amazes me and I didn't know this, when tests are conducted in a facility, they are done at 45 mph max. Who has a head on at 45 mph?? This was done at about 100 - 130 mph. This is the way testing should be done. I'm amazed at my little liberty and honestly I do feel that even if it had been a bigger car that we hit, we would have still been ok.

    I am sorry to hear about your brothers wife but I will never own another brand. My husband rolled the yellow jeep you see in my avatar. My daughter was in it at the time. They landed top down and both came out unscathed! Not to mention "Libby" Daniels Jeep.
