I don’t even know where to begin. Yesterday was a day for the books. I think the longest day has beat the longest month!
It started out nice enough, I had some coffee outside while I waited for my daughter to get her wisdom teeth pulled.
It was such a pretty day too.
Even the waiting room was pleasant enough.
My kid was in and out without a hitch in a half hour. Got her home and tucked her in with her ice packs and soft foods. All was good.
Then her dad called and said he was on his way to come and see her.
That’s where the drama begins.
She waited and waited and waited. No dad. Then my phone rang and it was him. He was in an accident on the 101 (Ventura freeway)!
We were up and out in two shakes and found ourselves here, on the side of the road.
He ended up landing and sliding on the freeway. He has a broken color bone and some horrible road rash.
There are pictures so look away!
We drove him to the nearest ER.
I have been here many times.
Her dad got the care he needed; the road rash cleaned up and a sling for the break. There is really NOTHING else they can do for a broken or fractured collar bone.
It is one of the most painful breaks.
We spent a few hours there, my kid sat there with icepacks on her face the whole time.
It was a mess.
They finally discharged him and I stopped to get everyone (accept my kid) dinner so we could tuck him in with no need of anything. I helped him change into some comfy clothes and we left him.
I don’t know how he is going to manage. He can drive with one hand but its gonna be really hard to do just about everything for a long time until the break heals. He is going to be miserable for 6 – 8 weeks.
Last week was no picnic and I am glad its over. I am trying to be in a positive place today.
My kid woke up a little swollen but feeling ok. We call her dad and he survived the night.
I have a hair cut appt. around 10:00 then my kid is going to her dads to stay and help him out.
Maybe I will take a picture to a garden shop and ask them what to do.
I hope your weekend has started off much better than ours!
