Glad she'll be fine. "facial blow-out fracture" doesn't sound good for
the patient, but I take your word for it that she needn't worry.
Hope the financial parts get sorted out soon too, and that that clerk
gets what he/she deserves.
It's a crack below her eye-socket. And they call it a blow-out as it
was caused by her marbles hitting the inside of her face. <G>
We were fully covered with a private non-Obama package. <G> and the
clerk has been handled.
Down in Columbus, they only x-rayed her neck, looking for fractures,
that was it. Lousy diagnostic work.... as we're finding out. Nobody
will be using this case history as to how wonderful the health-care is
in the USA. (Everybody keep your shirt on, we KNOW this is an isolated
case and that you 'murkens do get it right sometimes.:-)
Why in the world would anyone want the environmental disaster &
general piece of junk that is a Prius?
Excepting, of course, the delusional.
How's about a VW TDI? Better built, better looking, better handling &
better performing than that POS Toyboata, and gets BETTER mileage, to
-Kevin in Indy
To reply, remove (+spamproof+) from address........
Depends how you calculate "better mileage".
If you mean miles per gallon of fuel then you may be ahead but some of
it comes from the fact that diesel gives about 10% more energy by volume
Also, diesel will do better on long trips while the hybrids of all kinds
will do better in stop-and-go traffic.
And neither technology is particularly happy at sub -45 in winter. :)
...not to mention all that fine chemistry, by the pound, which we'll
all have to get rid of later...what, 160 pounds per Prius x how many x
over how many years? Talk about a toxic dump. And for what? A 10%
savings of fuel?

I'm as worried about the Toyota throttle sticking as I was while
hot-rodding my Corvair around, CW.
I've already survived real chemistry sets, holding liquid mercury in
my hand, REAL fireworks, shooting big bad guns, sanding and painting
with lead paint, riding in cars without seatbelts, bunji bending 30'
saplings below the dam, taunting bullies, 20 years of alcoholism,
brake dust, exhaust fumes, smoking for 20 years, drinking while
driving, doing 150mph in an automobile ('67 split window), driving
from San Diego's Lindberg Field to Vista in 19 minutes (about 35
miles) in a '68 Ford wagon, a master cylinder bypass during 70mph
braking before a 25mph corner in a Javelin, unprotected sex with a
woman (70s & 80s), and 2 years of driving in a recalled Tundra.
What, me worry?
Losing faith in humanity, one person at a time.

OhmyBuddha! TIME PERIOD, TIME PERIOD, TIME PERIOD. I specifically did
not say "in their 80s", Ed. Uh uh. No way.
I had a boss once whose fave saying was "I'd do 'er. 9 to 90, blind,
crippled or drunk." I thought it was funny, but couldn't relate.
But...if I were offered a million bucks, I might muster up the, erm,
length. Then I could afford a stable of Festeringtools!
