What a long day full of emotional highs and lows. For a while it seemed that things stalled and we were going to court. But that would drag things out for a year or more with no guarantee of anything. All things considered, we walked out with a settlement and without getting into details, we're now millionaires. We had to give up a lot on our side from our original proposal but got them to up their offer quite a bit.

Canadian eh!!!

Thanks guys. I'm just beat. It hasn't fully sunk in yet. I was actually in good shape financially before today. Government disability coupled with my long term benefits from work. So what we got today isn't going towards income. We already have a financial planner who will help us live off the interest.

Funny thing is that I always used to joke about retiring at age 40. That was before my accident. Now that it happened, it's bitter sweet. I'd give it all back to go back to before that day.

Canadian eh!!!

Not frustrated. But thinking about someone in a crisis situation. The first responders get there and take care of you. They do everything to keep you alive. They get you to the hospital and hand you off. Then go on about their day.

I've shared in the past how we made it a tradition to bring a plate of cookies to the fire hall at Christmas as a way of saying thank you. But what about the 911 operators? They take the call and make sure that all necessary life saving measures are in place to help you then pass you on.

We recently went to make a bigger furniture purchase. The salesperson who we dealt with talked to her sister about me and what happened. Her sister, as it turns out, happened to be the 911 operator who took the call when I had my accident. In a city of 115000 people, I managed to reconnect with some of the firemen who were first on scene and kept me alive till paramedics arrived and got me to the hospital. Now, I was able to indirectly connect with the 911 operator who played a part in saving my life.

Canadian eh!!!
