(2007-09-11) For Better Or For Worse…

Posted by Jorge on 2007-09-11


As some of you may know, I got married on 7-7-7. Concerning the "for better or for worse…"-part I (or we) can say we definitely got the "for worse"-part in the face! If I told you all the details this post would take a sh!tload of time to complete. So, to make it easy I’m going to explain it bullet-wise. You cannot imagine how our honeymoon was! It sucked big time. Let me tell you why…

07-07-07: Marriage! Yeah!😉 This was fun, great people, great pictures, great day and a great party afterwards!

12-07-07: We got on EACH of our bikes for our honeymoon. Driving around starting in the Netherlands, to Belgium, to Luxemburg, to Germany, to France, to Switzerland, to Italy and the other way around back again…The first day we stayed in Germany right after passing the border with Luxemburg. We had dinner, drank some wine that we bought on the way…

13-07-07: Today’s trip was to some place in Switzerland…until…this is where the bad news starts. Almost at the end of the day, still in France, my wife is hit by an oncoming biker. He makes a mistake making his curve, comes onto her side of the road and hits her. Result: broken hand, stitches in fingers, broken hip-socket, quite a lot of damage to her bike. She goes into the hospital.

14-07-07: Filling in damage reports with the other guy. Doctors mention my wife is going to get surgery in the next days

15-07-07: Family from the Netherlands arrives to help us

16-07-07: Doctor tells us surgery must happen within 10 days. He also tells us surgery cannot happen as planned because the parts needed are not available. The parts needed are 100 km away and for some stupid reason it takes a freakin’ week to get them in the hospital where my wife is. We start loosing trust in the doctor and the hospital. The "fight" with the insurance company starts to get her back to the Netherlands

17-07-07: the "fight" continues…

18-07-07: the "fight" continues… We finally get the word my wife is going to transported back to the Netherlands by ambulance

19-07-07: Dutch ambulance drives about 700 km to where we were

20-07-07: Dutch ambulance drives about 700 km back to a hospital in the Hague. She is immediately quarantined because she came from a foreign hospital. I drive back on my bike to our home in the Netherlands (about 600 km). At the end of the day I drive with my car to the hospital in the Hague

21/22/23-07-07: Driving from our home to visit my wife in the hospital in the Hague

24-07-07: Driving from our home to visit my wife in the hospital in the Hague. She gets surgery to repair her hip-socket. The end-result of the surgery is good and doctors are happy

25-07-07: Driving from our home to visit my wife in the hospital in the Hague…Drains are removed (which is quite fast!)

26/27/28/29-07-07: Driving from our home to visit my wife in the hospital in the Hague

30-07-07: My wife is transported by ambulance from the Hague to a hospital in the city where we live

31-07-07: Visiting my wife in the hospital in the city where we live

01/02-08-07: Visiting my wife in the hospital in the city where we live

03-08-07: Visiting my wife in the hospital in the city where we live. Stitches are removed

04/05/06/07/08/09/10/11/12/13/14/15/16/17/18/19-08-07: Visiting my wife in the hospital in the city where we live. Recovery in the hospital

20-08-07: A special bed and all kinds of other stuff is delivered at our home. She’s coming home today!😉

21/22/23/24/25/26/27/28-08-07: Recovery at home

29-08-07: She goes to a special recovery centre that is going to help her doing exercises and to help her to walk again

30-08-07: Visiting my wife in the recovery centre. She’s going to stay for about a month or more

01-09-07 until present: she’s still in the recovery centre and she’s doing great. With (very) small steps she going forward and forward. At this moment I’m visiting her each day and taking care of all kinds of insurance sh!t.

Now, does this suck or what?!

Our idea at this moment: as soon as she’s better again, we are going on a honeymoon again and the enjoy the "for better"-part!

 

Cheers,
Jorge

    As it looks bad luck I’m happy that Nelleke is still with You as I miss some of a friends who didn’t make it after such accidents😦. This is bright thing in all off this.

    I hope that recovery will went smoothly and You will enjoy Your honeymoon and whole “for better” part. You are invited to visit Poland🙂, however our roads are horrible – take a train🙂.

    It definitely couldn’t get much ‘for worse’-parts, that’s for sure..
    Good luck to you both!

    That recovery centre open to visitors, by the way ?
