All The Belongings

I got a call yesterday afternoon from my father. He was calling from the emergency room and needed me to take him home. He had been in a car wreck. He got T-boned in a major intersection by a lady who ran the red light. He’s ok. Lots of back pain, bruised ribs, bruised kidney. His car is totaled though. I went and got stuff out of it at the towing place. I cleaned out the glove box and boxed up all the belongings he had. Then we went and got a prescription filled for some pain pills. Strong stuff. He’ll be passed out most of today, which is good cause he’s going to be hurtin’. I worry because back problems can stick with you and haunt you all your life. Yesterday I told him he was lucky. He just looked at me and laughed. He sure didn’t feel lucky, but he knew what I meant.

  1. Oh geez, I’m sorry – but you’re right, he *is* very lucky. Just make sure he keeps up on getting his back checked out so that a potentially small problem doesn’t turn into a huge problem later on. (You know how dads can sometimes get about doctors…my own dad would have to be bleeding out of his eyes before he’d willingly see a doctor.)

    I’m glad he’s okay.

  2. Having a parent go through something like that is always tough on you and them. My first Bloody Mary will be cheered to your pop’s speedy recovery.

  3. Thank you all for the kind words and support. I think the positive enegy will help my pops with a speedy recovery. I know it definately balms my nerves.
