Giving thanks.

My son's guardian angel was working overtime on Friday night/Saturday morning. On a winding country road, as the snow was just beginning, my younger son spun his car around into a tree. Thankfully, he has a mere sore shoulder from the event. Even more thankfully, he was alone in the vehicle.






EMTs took him to the hospital. Hospital called me at about 1 AM. After several tests, including a CT scan of his head, and observation, they sent him home with me at 5 AM with instructions for him to take ibuprofen for the muscle pains he'd be experiencing and drink a lot of fluid.

I'm almost too grateful to be angry with him for driving down that particular road at that particular time of night! Almost!

I am glad he is safe and that they did all the tests for him to make sure he didn't have an internal injury.

Good to know he's fine. The car sure suffered the most damage. No doubt your son is quite sore, as happens after accidents. That guardian angel was on his/her toes that night. I am thankful for mine.

I can't even imagine how scary that must have been - especially after seeing the car. I'm so glad he is not hurt!

Oh thank goodness! Blessing sure do come in some funny colors, don't they?

I'm so glad he's okay :)

Woah. You aren't kidding about the car. I'm glad he's ok.

Oh, Kathleen! So glad he is OK! I had a similar, but much less serious, accident when I was about his age and it made me a much more cautious driver.
