    Thank You For Thoughts & Prayers About My Son:

    Bkthomas made a post about an accident my son had very recently. I want to thank everyone for your thoughts, prayers, and private messages. Here is the story of what happened:

    My 19 year old son left for work @ 3:30 in the afternoon the other day. Before leaving, he told me goodbye and that he loved me. About 20 minutes later, I received the phone call from the paramedics informing me of my son's accident. Though, the paramedic had witnessed the accident because he was already on the scene taking care of another in the same area, he did not go into detail of Daniel's accident.

    I showed up at the scene and saw Daniel's SUV on the other side of the median, facing the wrong direction. I could tell by looking at it that the vehicle was completely totaled and was wondering just what happened. Although, Daniel was in shock and was not completely coherent to what his surrounding were, he told me he was changing lanes due to an accident and he hit black ice. His vehicle began spinning then started flipping across the median. I could see his SUV barely missed the on-coming traffic and was glad the vehicle stopped when it had. The vehicle had flipped 4 times, according to witnesses. Daniel said it seemed like it was all in slow motion at the time.

    Because the paramedics were so busy with accidents in the same area, I was the one who took my son to the ER. According to the paramedics, police, and medical team, Daniel was lucky to be alive. His air bag did not deploy. Between the SUV's roll bar, seat belt and God, Daniel was saved and I am grateful. He suffered a concussion, cuts from the glass on areas of his body that wasn't covered by his coat and jeans. He had a lot of tiny pieces of broken glass in his forehead and ears. (all the windows were broken). He has bad dreams from the accident. Other than that, Daniel came out pretty good. Sometimes he looks like he's doing okay and other times, he is at that accident.

    As for me, I did very well through the whole thing until it was all over. Then I did not do so well because thoughts of nearly losing our son kept running through my mind. Now, every time Daniel or DH goes to work, I am desperately worried. Although, our DD doesn't live with us, I find myself worrying about her. She has an hour to drive to work everyday. I hope I can get over the worry sooner rather than later because it's no fun. I've even been feeling depressed lately. Don't know why, but there it is. Want everything back to normal.

    Thanks ya'll, you're a really great group of people.

    Glad to hear that he's basically ok. Time should heal the rest. It's your job to worry, it's all part of being mom.

      (((MISA))) So thankful Daniel is on the mend. Try to remember that he is okay, and will get better as time goes by, but do avail yourself of professional help if you need it. Can you talk to your clergy or doctor? Maybe that will help.

          Oh Misa, so scary - you sound like me - hold it together until everything is over and then have a mini meltdown. I hope that you have someone that you can talk to and express the fears and find a way to get a handle on them. Anxiety is no fun and it may take professional help.

          Thank God he was not seriously injured. Continuing to keep all of you in my prayers.

                I am so glad you son is doing ok and he will be better as time goes on, he is probably still in shock from it all as you probably are too. I understand your worry, its because you're a loving mother.

                  Glad to see that he came out as well as he did. I pray that the emotional torment will fade quickly for both of you. Stay strong, you will come through this. ((Misa))

                        (((Misa))), incredibly happy that Daniel has survived that horrible accident. Time will heal the mental nightmares, he might want to find a professional to talk to. I was in my early 20s when I was in a bad car accident and it took a very long time before I could drive that stretch of Down Town LA freeway again. I would have panic attacks even as a passenger when others drove me to my clients. I wish I would have gone for help.

                        As another mom, the worry will stay with you for awhile on high alert, then taper off again. It's part of our make up dear friend. God made us this way.

                        God has blessed our families that is for sure!

                            OH, chica!
                            I'm so glad to hear Daniel is okay! Black ice scares the heck out of me.
                            SO unpredictable....

                              Oh Misa, I'm so sorry to hear about Daniels accident. I have you both in my prayers. Continued worry? That seems to be the thing I do best when my kids get hurt.
