I do not remember much since I was knocked unconscious and it took me quite a while to figure out what was going on. Shawn said he saw the car, remembers spinning into the other lane, and watching the police and paramedics try to get me out. The car hit right where my front tire was, buckling the roof above me and jamming my door. Shawn was knocked out briefly, had some cracked ribs, and hit his knee pretty bad. The center console was twisted and thank goodness he had his boot on (from his surgery). I think it protected his foot and ankle from what could have been a more serious injury. We were taken to the hospital in an ambulance and spent the rest of the night there.
We are very blessed with great friends here in Maryland and as soon as they heard met us at the hospital and stayed with us to take us home. Thank you Jay and Jazz! Jay even drove Shawn and I around the next few days to get medicine, a rental car, lunch, and to see Oasis to gather my belongings before I signed him over. The boys were even able to stay with their Auntie Dina who is always there for us. This allowed Shawn and I to recover without having to worry about caring for them. I know they had a blast at Auntie Dina's (they always do) and we are so appreciative of her willingness to always help.
We also appreciated the calls, texts, prayers, and visits from all our family and friends. It has been a little over a month now and we are doing much better. We are still dealing with some of the pains from our injuries but they should get better with time.
The car that hit us.
I only remember telling the police/paramedics I needed my glasses to see and my house key because I had dogs at home. I kept telling them this over and over again. I remember them handing me back my ID...I asked again for my glasses and keys. Nothing. Then before getting into the ambulance they said "ma'am here are your brownies". They were still warm and still had the lid on them. Not one crack in my pyrex dish! So when we got home from the hospital at 1 or 2 a.m. we all had brownies and ice cream! They were delish!
