Lucky to be alive!!!


On Monday I had one of the scariest experiences of my life! A woman ran a red light and hit me. The crash was so hard I don't remember a bit of it. I woke up to a woman holding my head in place and telling me not to move. The worst part was that sweet little Molly was in the car with me! She was fine, she had just a seat belt burn on her chest. The paramedics came and strapped a neck brace on me, put me in the ambulance and took me to the hospital. After a few hours of tests they told me that I was alright and that I could go. I feel so blessed that a bruise and a sore body were the worst of my injuries. It scares me to think that just a millisecond later it would have been my door that she plowed into, which I'm sure I would not have walked away from. Luckily the woman was fine to, amazing since she flipped her car! Unfortunately she doesn't have insurance and she was driving with a suspended license! This experience reminds me to take everyday as a gift. I feel so blessed to be alive!

Kris that is so scary! We got in a car accident one time (not as bad as yours) and cars freaked me out for a while. I am glad you and Molly are ok.

Ahhhh! Scary with a little Molly in back especially. How grateful I am that you're OK! I bet you're so grateful as well. Stinks to be the other lady though. I guess there's something to be said for not getting your license suspended?
