Today is March 26, 2009.
In the which the rabidrunner documents what happened one year ago today.
(I apologize in advance for the photos being large. I'm too lazy to change it.)
In the which Spouse's health benefits become expensive and rabidrunner complains incessantly that yearly medical expenses will not meet out-of-pocket payments.
In the which Spouse sells Harley to pay off truck so as to make health care out-of-pocket payments.
In the which rabidrunner cries because there will be no more of this (see below), but Spouse and rabidrunner sigh with relief knowing that they will be safe now that Harley is gone.

In the which doctors say, “that sucks” and “oh crap” when reading x-ray.
In the which Spouse is taken by ambulance to hospital named “Death Star”. Clock in ambulance incorrect. (In the which it's a good thing they didn't pronounce him dead... at the wrong time!)
In the which Spouse's medical expenses exceed yearly out-of-pocket payments within first hour. Rabidrunner eats her words.
In the which Spouse spends 5 days in “Death Star” to manage pain.

In the which Spouse spends 4 days in hospital to manage pain.
In the which rabidrunner leaves Spouse with 7 babysitters to selfishly run the Boston Marathon. Finishes in 3:23 and cries like school girl.

In the which Spouse establishes Midget Man Mowing Services.
In the which Spouse learns to walk again.
In the which Spouse walks… and skis.
