Thankful



In the early morning of Saturday, May 1st, my grandmother, mother, aunt, and baby cousin got in the truck above to come to NC for a family reunion. Around 7am the tire blew, they flipped around, they landed upside down. Aunt and cousin able to get out on their own. Mom and grandmother had to be cut out. This pic shows one of my cousins gathering what she can out the truck.


I was at the weekend job. My cell phone started blowing up around 8:10am. Let's just say on Saturday I came close to losing my mother. It was a pretty stressful day to say the least.


Aunt and cousin were discharged that Saturday. Little cousin did not have any burns, scrapes, bruises, NOTHING. Aunt had a lot of bruising, scrapes and burns from the airbag (she was driving). Grand Diva was discharged on Sunday or Monday (don't remember now) with lots of bruising and scratches, but okay. Mom caught the worst of it. She broke a few bones and had respiratory issues that required her to be in the CCU. The medical staff got her breathing on her own, got the blood out of her lungs and out of the CCU. She left the CCU Monday or Tuesday.


Today my grandmother, aunt and cousin are home. My mom is doing well. She tore a lot of ligaments in her leg and was supposed to have them repaired yesterday but some emergency surgeries came up so she got moved to today. She had a stress test yesterday that came back funky so they are doing more tests on her today. At this point we don't know when the surgery is going to be.


I do know that I will be in VA this weekend chilling at the hospital. That's for sure.


Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, moms to be, and single dads that take on both roles. Do something special even if it's only sleeping 10 minutes longer this weekend!
Lata!

Damn! Looking at that wreck and hearing about what happened it's fortunate that 3/4 of the family are at home recuperating or chilling.

Your mom will be in my thoughts. Considering what happened and what almost happened I'm sure this Mother's Day will be particularly special for you.
