In a second


Yesterday, I was not feeling it and had a headache and felt yucky.

At about 3:45, the kids and I were headed back home (almost there) when I collided with a truck and trailer. I don't even remember what happened. I was just in shock and worried about my kiddos and the sweet baby in my belly.






Where I met with the truck.



The Yukon is gone. It's totaled. It's replaceable, but these babies aren't.

I was worried about the lil one, so we went to the ER because I was worried. My side airbag hit my stomach on the side. The nurse who came to do the doppler asked me if the baby had a normally low heartbeat, and I said no..totally freaked me out. So the Dr. ordered an ultrasound. I hate having them I'm the hospital. They wouldn't let Scotty come with me, and the tech wouldn't let me see my own baby. I kind of felt robbed. She did a 20 min US and I got to see nothing. She told me nothing. It freaked me out a little. She probably knows whether my baby is a boy or girl but she wouldn't tell me. I understand they have rules, but compassion? Geez...

After I got back downstairs, the Dr. came back and said heartrate was 158 and baby was perfect. Wish I could've seen. At least for reassurance. Baby was moving but I was still nervous.

When we left, I needed food fast. And some caffiene. My head felt like it was going to explode. So we got some Taco Bell and I came home and crashed. My head and neck hurt a little bit this morning, just SO thankful we are all OK.

Oh my goodness!! I am SO glad that you and your little ones are okay. I'm sorry that you have to replace your vehicle, and deal with insurance mess, but like you said "all replaceable."

Again, I am so thankful you all are okay!

(And I can't help but smile at the picture of innocence running down the street after an accident in child like wonder. God is good!)
