..do some people/families have such bad luck?
My eldest son was involved in a 3 car accident last night. A bad one.
Luckily he's ok, they all are, even though the car apparently flipped over after a taxi decided to turn right, across their path a little too late.They were (legally) doing 60mph.For once it wasn't the teenagers' fault as so often seems the case.
George has a broken foot,very bad internal bruising, cuts and bruises and swellings to his face and what looks like a bit of a broken nose from the air bag.You can literally see the marks from the seatbelt on his chest and abdomen.Poor thing.. he's a skinny 17 year old who shouldn't have experienced such a thing so young.All three boys escaped lightly considering.
I wasn't allowed to see him at the scene of the accident but four hours (a long four hours) later I saw a sedated kid in A&E, face covered in blood,body covered in bruises. Shaking with shock, The clothes they cut from him in a green plastic bag beside him.
Sitting in the hospital waiting for any news with the 3 other distraught parents is not quite how I would ever like to spend another Saturday evening again.We had our very own episode of 'Casualty' unfolding infront of us.
At the same time, 8pm, same night, but in Hereford,three other young people weren't so lucky and lost their lives in a similar accident. It could so easily have been the other way round.
My heart goes out to the mothers of them. I cannot begin to imagine their pain.
I think the shock of it all is sinking in now.I'm starting to shake a little typing this, I dont even know why I'm typing this.
I'm sorry if my blog is becoming more like a page of 'Dear Deidre' but you know how it goes in blogland somedays are good somedays are bad..
