Mothers intuition????

Ever get one of those sick feelings in the pit of your stomach that something is wrong and you just can't shake it? Well, that was me this morning. Andrew worked a 12 hour shift last night and got off at 8am this morning and Richard and Hunter left for school at 7:30am. I sat here with that feeling and just couldn't shake it. I needed to go upstairs and quilt but I was afraid that with the machine running that I would not be able to hear the phone ring if someone called. So I tried to get my mind off of having a bad feeling and went through some emails and stuff like that. Then at 8:20 Richard called. As soon as I saw his cell number on the caller ID, my heart started racing. I answered and it was nothing he was just trying to give me a phone number for someone. After I hung up with Richard and went and got dressed and was brushing my hair when Andrew calls at 8:45am. That is when I knew....

I answered the phone and all I heard was...."Mom, I'm okay...but..." Needless to say that I lost it. He had an accident and they were loading him in the ambulance when he called. He swore that he wasn't hurt bad but his back was hurting. He tells me that they are taking him to a hospital 90 minutes away from me!! (Long story there....we live in KY on the WV border and when you wreck in WV they take you to a WV hospital. He works in WV so that is where they took him.)

Let me tell you that was the longest trip that I ever drove! Here I was going 85 and 90 on the interstate trying to get there.

He was okay, just banged and bruised up pretty good and some back injuries. Nothing was broken but he was still in alot of pain. You just don't know how much praying that I did on my way and how many times that I thanked the Lord once I found out that he was okay.

You can see here that he is okay. He has some seat belt burns on his stomach and bruising from the air bag too.

The cute thing about it all.....look at the underwear that he had on!!! LOL! Sesame Street! Oh well, at least they were clean! :)

He hit some black ice and hit the guardrail, then bounced over and hit the hill and turned the truck over!! The police said that he was only going about 45mph, just when he hit the ditch and hill it sorta ramped it and flipped it over.


He is home and will probably not feel like moving much for a few days. I'm just thankful that he is okay and that God was watching over him.


Now.....MOMMA NEEDS A NERVE PILL! LOL!

Oh Kristie! Bless your heart! I will say a prayer for both of you! I am so glad that he is ok. I know it's not as important but how is his truck? I ask because I know how proud he is of that truck and that he bought it himself.

Hope he feels better really soon!

Yes, we are very thankful for God's mercy and care. I hate waking up with the feeling that something is wrong. Just try to relax and take a day or two off for yourself to recover with your son.

Oh, thank goodness, he's alright. It's funny that we moms can always sense when something just isn't right?

I'm glad he's ok!!! But was this in his brand new truck that he is so proud of? ugh!!!

Strange, that intuition. You have said, however, that he is really working hard, maybe doing too much. Perhaps you felt instinctively that he couldn't keep it up without something giving. I'm so glad that he is safe and without major injuries. I'm so glad he is at home where 'Mummylove' is plentiful and you will be at peace looking after him. Speedy recovery! (Sorry, I'm English, should have said 'Mommylove'!)

How scary! Pleased to know that he will be ok.
Love Oscar :)

Oh, my! I'm glad he's OK. You gotta trust your intuition - we moms just KNOW sometimes.
