Ok, who wrote those words, just when I thought things couldn't get any worse this month, it did.
Yesterday, late afternoon, Fathers Day here in the UK. My hubby was going a few miles up the road to the nearest supermarket when someone on the other side of the road came right over his side of the road and put him in hospital.
The worst thing about it was that someone tried to phone me at the scene of the accident and our stupid answer phone kicked in too early as it does, I could hear the people on the other end of the phone and got the gist of what was happening but no one could hear me. I immediately tried to phone out on my mobile but couldn't get a signal. A few minutes later a lovely elderly couple arrived in our drive and announced what had happened. I was already in shock, they took me to the scene and I saw the car first, or what was left of it. Well that was it, I couldn't even see my husband, he was on the floor behind the car. the ambulance arrived before I had really got my head together and carried him off in traction. I was just wobbling around like a zombie/headless chicken. Well, I don't drive and I live in a rural hamlet, no buses on a Sunday. All I could do was keep ringing the hospital. Well, I knew he would be going to xray. A couple of hours later when I rang I was told that they suspected a broken neck!!! They would be doing a CT scan. Well, I didn't wait to phone back later, I rang my very dear ex sister-in-law and her husband took me over to him, I just wasn't functioning by this time. Well, by the time we were about to leave him, a doctor came on the ward and said that he had the all clear and could go home. Some one was looking down on us yesterday. My hubby is in serious shock today, the doctor has given him some sedatives as he couldn't sleep last night at all. At the end of the day, we are without a car but he survived, so I will look on the bright side of life. Things could have been so much worse. He is just so, so lucky!!!
