M and I got about the worst phone call you can get on Thursday. We were headed home from school and our Dad called us and said "Don't freak out, but your Mom was in a car accident and I'm headed to the hospital now." Worst phone call ever. We drove straight to the hospital and found our Dad in the ER waiting to be let into her room. He didn't know anything, just that she had called him from the ambulance and she was in a car accident.
She's okay thank goodness. Some guy hit her doing around 65 when she was dead stopped. He swerved at the last minute which basically saved hers, and his life. It was during rush hour and ended up being a 4 car pile up.
The police officer showed up at the hospital and said with accidents this bad people usually don't walk away. It was horrible.
Our Mom walked away with only cuts on her head and whiplash side effects. She's lucky. So lucky.
Let this be your reminder to tell those close to you how much you love them, because you never know when it will be the last time,
