Accident Victims

On Thursday, I was driving the Geo Prism heading East on Warner. I had the green light and was passing through the intersection at Val Vista when an SUV came barreling towards me from my left. I slammed on my breaks and swerved out of the way as much as I could but this SUV was going Fast and gave me little time to react so we collided with each other going at at least 45 mph. She hit my front passenger side.

The impact was really hard. I thought we were all dead. The SUV even rolled over. The Geo is totaled. I couldn't really move or breath right after impact but I heard the girls in the back seat crying and screaming and that was music to my ears. Since I'm pregnant, I was air-evacuated to the Good Samaritan hospital. The paramedics had me on the stretcher and were working on me before air-lifting me and asked me if I had felt the baby kick and that is when I completely lost it -screaming and bawling- because I hadn't felt the baby kick since the accident and the thought of loosing the baby killed me.

Once we were in the chopper, they got a heart beat on the baby and I felt baby kick so that was a huge waive of relief. By this time, Dan was at the accident and he road with the girls on an ambulance to Good Samaritan.

Once at the hospital they gave me a cat-scan and took xrays of my chest and did blood work. They were only going to keep me at the hospital for 4 hours but I was having regular contractions so they kept me over night. Sydney and Alex got checked out and seem to be fine. Poor Sydney has nasty bruises from the seat belt and she was feeling a lot of pain and has had stifness in her back and neck (hopefully she doesn't have any problems in the future with her neck and back).

I was released from the hospital yesterday and besides this horrible pain in my chest and ribs, I'm doing good (As long as I don't move I feel fine). Thankfully, everything seems to be fine with the baby and me and the girls. We are so blessed to have not sustained any more injuries considering how hard the impact of the crash was.

I have been excited about having this baby but now I am incredibly anxious to hold and kiss this little one that I thought for a short period of time I might have lost.

Thanks to everyone for your prayers and help!

Scorpion at Melting Pot

To Celebrate my 26th Birthday, my friends, Lynda and Robert, came with Dan and I to the Melting Pot where Robert Got stung by a scorpion on his hand during the main course! Unbeleivable!

I had a fun Birthday, though. A couple of my sweet girlfriends took me out for lunch, I got a pedicure with Lynda, and Dan surprised me with some sweet new lenses for my camera.
