Yes--it was pretty bad. I was stopped in a turn lane in my Ford Escort hatchback and a kid rearended me doing 70 MPH. I ended up 1/4 of a mile away in a ditch in the pasture. I do not remember anything about the wreck itself....just have all the pics from it. I was without a pulse and was turning blue when the ambulance arrived. I woke up in the hospital in the Cat Scan machine---I honestly thought the aliens had gotten me, they were real and this was my payback for laughing at all those shows. A nurse walked in and i was so scared of the 'alien' I must have passed out again. Next thing I knew, my hubby walked into the room--he was crying. I realized that it was not aliens, not a bad dream I was having but something had happened to me. I had 5 broken ribs-same side of body- one was broken in 4 spots. Collapsed. torn and bruised lungs, bruised diaphragm, torn kidney and spleen, I was scalped on the left side of my head, had a damaged vertebra and disc, whiplash, permanent brain damage, torn shoulder rotator ligaments on both shoulders and many bruises and cuts. I was in ICU for a week and a half. The son of a bitch lied his way out of a ticket & had minimal insurance.
I had every one of my guardian angels on my shoulder that day--I am very lucky to be alive, to have gotten out of the car ---which did not resemble a vehicle in any way anymore--in one piece, well, with everything still partially intact, and that my father in law saw the wreck and told my husband and stayed at the scene to be there for him when he had to go through it to get to the hospital. The cops said I was already gone. This was to my hubby when he asked where I was after not finding me in the current ambulance.
It was a sad but life altering experience for all of us!!! Live every day to your fullest--I went to go home to see my hubby at lunch and did not make it. Thank God I was able to make it there a few weeks later--not everyone gets that other chance.
