Seriously ?!

This past weekend, 5:00 pm ... my 17 year old daughter was a front seat passenger in this car. She is still not recovered from a car accident from when she was rear ended in February. That car was totaled also. (I mention the car was totalled, not for the loss of the car .... it can easily be replaced .... but to point out how serious these accidents were.)

How she even lived through this crash is mind boggling. Grant it she is really banged up, cut up, bruised and will no doubt be seeing a variety of specialists for months to come, it is a wonder she came away from this with no broken bones or major injuries.

This past Sunday 5:00 pm, 3 blocks from Saturdays accident, both my daughters and 1 year old grandchild were stopped at a traffic light and got rear ended and slammed into the car in front of them.

This car is also totalled (... less then 2,000 miles on it). Baby just suffered a belt burn on his shoulder and bit his tongue, 17 year spent the evening in 2 different hospitals, but again suffered only bumps and bruises on top of the ones she already had, other daughter ended up with stitches in her lip, a loose tooth and a very sore neck and back. Still, they were all very lucky, it could have been so much worse.

And to answer those many kind, concerned and thoughtful emails I have been getting over the past few months, asking if something has been up due to my lack of posting and not answering emails in a timely manner ... this past weekend is pretty typical of how our lives have been going over the past months. How we manage to get through one train wreck after another is a wonder, but we do. I'm thinking it's enough now and I am ready to have life get back to normal !

Oh My! I am so glad to hear that everyone is OK. Thankfully cars now a days are made with what they call "Crush Factor" (I think). Which means they can be hit pretty bad and look like doo doo on the outside, but the car kinda folds and crushes AROUND the folks inside to keep them as safe as possible. I am so sorry to hear this. hang in there, my friend.

I feel so sorry for all of you and I wish you well after these terrible and potentially life altering accidents. I have been permanently injured due to a car wreck and will spend the rest of my life in pain. I am unable to even go outside much, (only for doctors visits and occasionally to the art store, that's it) as the wind causes me severe pain. After the accident I thought I would be fine. Again I wish you all well.

Carol Q said...

jeez Ingrid, no wonder you're not posting much if this is the scale of your life recently. that first car is terrifying. just glad to hear everyone has survived and hope they don't have any long lasting injuries.

Ingrid, I'm so very sorry you have all been going through this. How difficult it must be on all of you -- and all at once! For the life of me I cannot fathom how one tragedy could fall right on the heels of another. I know you must be very busy caring for everyone -- and I hope you know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. xo

Best of luck that there are no more accidents.

Karen Samuelson Ricks said...

It kinda makes you not want to let any of your family out of the house!! But, apparently they all have alert guardian angels. :)

Elena said...

OMG!!!! Ingrid!! I am so glad everyone is okay! This should be IT for your family, at least for a while!!!
