never a dull monent...

My only sister was out bike riding yesterday. She rides about twenty miles a day. Anyhow, she was minding her own business and a car hit her really hard . It knocked her off her bike in nothing flat. She bounced off the front fender, threw her into the air and she crashed into the windshield. She cracked the windshield and broke her super duper helmet in two. Then she flew onto the street. She laid there for quite some time and waited for the ambulance to get there. They put her on a backboard and loaded her into the ambulance. She was very concerned about her helmet and bike. Needless to say they are destroyed. They did five hours of testing at the hospital,but the doctor said it was like a miracle. She had no broken bones and no concussion. She has like whiplash and bruises all over her body.so they dismissed her two hours after all the testing. She and I went to lunch today and I just kept hugging her and being thankful that I still have a sister. Mary never does anything half-assed. I am so grateful.

That's awful! I hope the driver is prosecuted! Thank god she's okay - as you say, miraculous!

Is that Mary in the icon? - the littler one? :))

No, that's me in the icon. We were all blessed to have her still with us.

I'm so relieved she's okay. That had to be one horrifying situation, and like unbelievable2. I hope the driver is prosecuted. (Well, actually I hope he/she is strung up by the short and curlies.)

Hugs and more hugs, but gentle ones because of all the bruises.

Thanks, Tinnean.

Glad she's (more or less) okay.

Some drivers seem to take the presence of a cyclist as a personal affront. I hope this one gets the book thrown at him!

It was a she driving. She had a small child with her and the child was hysterical that her mom killed someone. Even lying on the ground my sister told the lady to let the child see that she was alive and talking. We are sure the driver will be prosecuted because the cops were writing out tickets and reports.

I did use 'him' as default pronoun... Glad to hear there will probably be a prosecution.

Oh my! Thank goodness she bounced! Big hugs from me too - what a horrible scary thing to happen. *hugs you both*

I just kept hugging her all day. But very gently. Thanks for the hugs.

OMG, I'm so glad she's okay. It is a miracle. It sounds like if she'd not had that helmet, she could've been seriously injured!!

The doctor said it was good that she had such an expensive helmet, it saved her life.

It's worth every penny to buy the best protective helmet or anything else that will keep you safe.

Thank the Lord! Scary to say the less.

Package is going in the mail this afternoon.

Thank you. I will tell mom.
Oct. 20th, 2014 05:02 pm (UTC)
That is such a miracle that she is even alive! Her angels must have been working overtime!!
Oct. 20th, 2014 05:34 pm (UTC)
I know right?
Oct. 20th, 2014 06:00 pm (UTC)
Wow, she was really lucky not to be seriously hurt. Thank goodness for that!! I bet you're glad you were able to visit with her today and give her that hug up close and personal. *hugs*

You are so right. I'm very lucky her angel was looking out for her.

I'm so glad your sister wasn't badly hurt. What a horrible shock for her. I hope her whiplash and bruises heal up quickly.

{{{hugs tightly}}}
