Black Cloud over Cedar Park

Would someone please come and remove the black cloud over us? After getting the news from hubby's doctor on Tuesday, the day went downhill even more. We got the phone call no parent ever wants to get. The one saying, "Your daughter has been in a car accident"

*blood drains from head and settles around the feet*

"Where is she, is she hurt, where did it happen, we will be there in 5 minutes or less"
This is what we rolled up on. That wreck and our daughter on the stretcher with paramedics. She is going to be fine. No bad injuries. The other 2 17 yo girls are ok, one has a broken rib. Everyone wore their seat belts and no one was drinking or taking drugs. My daughter made a serious error, she ran a red light, she wasn't paying attention. The other car is damaged but the occupents walked away with no injuries. Our daughter has bruises, scrapes, and is sore from head to toe. She is so so lucky to be here in one piece. Thank goodness for airbags and seat belts, thats all I have to say!

I am now back to being fulltime chauffer again. She says she will never drive again. I plan to give her time to heal then make her get behind the wheel in a few weeks. I really don't want her to be afraid and dependent for the rest of her life. We are taking baby steps.

I may need therapy and lots of alcohol!

Oh my, Karen. What a blessing she is safe. Driving by the accident site with her in safe and lit conditions is helpful. It took me a week to go back down the FM road I slid off of last month, but each time it feels a little more normal.

Big hugs to you!

At least they were all okay. Cars come and go and can always be replaced but our love ones can't.
