So at least we knew the prognosis. And it didn't really seem so bad. After all, Tom and I reminded ourselves, we'd walked away from what could have been a terrible accident miraculously unhurt, and as for the expense...so what, really? We had the money in the bank to pay the $1,000 insurance deductible and another $1,000 for a rental car for three weeks.
In fact what troubles me most about this event, when I think about it, is the question of what we would have done if we didn't posses the means to give this story a happy ending,
