Praise God He's ok, but the car is totalled. He was going to work and was exiting the hwy. He got hit by a car from behind. That pushed him into traffic. He got hit again and was pushed towards the center divider in the fast lane. He said the steering column came off in his hands, so he had no control of the car whatsoever. He thinks another car hit him too, but he's not sure. I know God's angels were watching over him because he walked away without a scratch. They had to take him to the hospital in an ambulence to check for whiplash. He said they tied him down to the gurney with duct tape in addition to the straps. I had to have my cell phone of vibrate because I was in a conference. I had put my phone on the back of the chair and felt it move. When I found out I left in a hurry and tried not to get into an accident myself. I didn't even know where the hospital that they took him to was at.
By the time I got there, he had been released from the hospital. We had to go back to the car to get his glasses. When I saw the car, I was shocked that Ed hadn't had any injuries. The whole back end was smashed in on both sides. You couldn't open the trunk or the 2 back doors. The passenger side was all messed up and the mirror on the passenger's side was dangling down. The steering wheel was on the floor. He said he had just filled the car up with gas too. I'm surprised that the car didn't explode into flames because there was that much damage.
I just kept saying that I was so glad that I didn't stop to get his glasses 1st because I would have been more of basket case than I already was. I can't believe that my husband had called the car rental place, was going to drive without his glasses (he's blind as a bat) to the towing yard and try to get his glasses from the car. I'm so glad I told him to stay at the hospital. He probably would have got into another accident. We just bought this car 3 months ago when his other car died on the hwy because the transmission blew out. I'm just so grateful to God that he is alright, I was not ready to be a widow yet. It was a miracle that he made it out alive, and it made me realize how much I really do love him. Don't ever take the people around you for granted, you don't know how long they'll be around.
But before the accident had happened, I learned that my sister in law was 12 weeks pregnant. She's been on bed rest the whole time. She has had several miscarriages in the past and her husband in serving overseas in the military right now. The poor thing has been sick the whole time. I think I'm going to send her a care package in the next couple of weeks. Earlier this week I started making some congratulations cards for her. I think that they turned out super cute. So for those of you that like to look at pictures, here are the pictures of the cards I made this week. I didn't put the shadows on the pictures, that's how the light hit them when I took the pictures in the morning. I think I'm going to send the first one to Leia. If you'd like to make a card and send it to my sister-in-law leave me a comment and I'll put your cards in the care package. In return, I can send out 5 free christmas diecuts to anyone that wants to help out. I'll give you more details by e-mail. Thanks for your help in advanced. Have a great week and stay safe out there.
