First, Skye and I are both 100% okay but it was a pretty awful day.
Skye and I had gone out to lunch with some friends and then we were headed home so that I could feed her. We were stopped because of some traffic when we got rear ended by a teenager. My airbags didn’t go off (not sure why) but my head hit the steering wheel and our car hit into the car in front of us. I jumped out of the car so fast because I was terrified that Skye was hurt.
I was so afraid. Skye was crying instantly (which is a good sign in this case) and I was able to get the door open (it took me a minute to get the door open because the crash really jammed it) and get to her quickly. The paramedics got there shortly after and they checked her out right away. From there they took us to the hospital to the ER to check her out (and me… although I couldn’t care less about my head at the time because I was so worried about Skye).
Long story short—> Skye is completely fine. The doctor was very thorough and did everything he needed to make sure that she is fine. She is eating normally, crying normally and smiling normally. We are SO lucky. Oh and of course all of this happened while Andrew was on the airplane and we couldn’t reach him. My mom came to the hospital (she bought a new carseat on the way there so that she could drive us home because my car is probably donezo), drove us home and stayed with us until Andrew got home. Isn’t it crazy how fast things can change? I am so grateful that Skye is okay. I love her so much.
We’ll chat more tomorrow but I’m going to go to bed now (I write my posts the night before)! I hope you have a great Saturday!
I am beyond thankful for car seats and seat belts.
