I want my blog friends to know that I may be absent from my blogging a bit here and there. Last Friday my girls were in a roll over car accident on the way to school. Jordan called me shortly after the girls left home for school and very calmly told me that they were okay but had went off into the ditch. Upon my arrival to the scene of the accident I saw this and Josey was covered in blood....
My heart just sank but I knew that I had been blessed this day. A mother of the girls' classmate came upon the scene and took care of my girls until I arrived. She had them standing and waiting to see me so that I would know my girls were alive. The girls hit some black ice, fish tailed and rolled their Trailblazer at least twice into a steep ditch and landed on a fence in a field. Please take this as a reminder that seat belts save lives and that many accidents happen close to home. Please buckle up.
As I was driving my girls to the emergency room, my dad called and said that my mom was sick and something was wrong. He had called the ambulance to take her to the emergency room also. So we spent all day Friday with my mom and my girls in the ER. The girls had every x-ray and scan done to make sure there were no broken bones or internal bleeding. They ended up with severe whiplash from the seat belts, a concussion, black eye, stitches on her hand and a ripped fingernail for Josey. Lots of bruises, bumps and very sore bodies for both girls. My mom was treated for dehydration from some medicine she was recently prescribed.
The girls and my mom were released Friday afternoon. They will all be fine but my girls are dealing with some expected emotional issues. It's been a rough few days but I feel we had an angel watching over my family on this horrible day. We are so thankful that my girls and my mom are okay. Time will heal the physical wounds and hopefully with lots of hugs and love and chats the emotional parts will heal too.
The girls are back at school with the loving care of our wonderful school counselor/family friend. It's good for them to be back with friends and continue their normal activities. Spring Break is coming up and it's a short week this week. We're looking forward to the time off and just relaxing around the house.
I have some projects to share that I've already had completed so I'll pop up on the blog when I can. Otherwise it will be hit and miss as I take this time to be with my family.
