I was going to post the tutorial for a towel dress yesterday, but something happened and my blogging time went out the window...
A couple days ago, Mr. TRH got in a bike accident. I was just about to step out to take my kids to swim lessons, and then the phone rang...
"Hello?", I said.
Mr. TRH: "Hey, hon, can you come to the Instacare?"
Me: "Sure, but what happen?"(I thought he got sick or something).
Mr. TRH: "I got in a bike accident..."
After I got to the Instacare, he told me the details of what happened.
Before he started work, he decided to get his biking done. He went on the bike trail. He rode some, and was ready to head back to work. Long story short, someone wasn't staying in their own lane and drove Mr. TRH off the trail. He went over the handle bars, landed on his shoulder and skidded off the path down a gravel embankment. The other biker? He kept on going (I think he didn't notice what he had caused, at least that's how I want to think). When he was trying to climb back up to the trail, two bikers noticed him and helped. Mr. TRH rode 4 miles after that to work, and someone took him to Instacare.
I am so grateful for people like that.
Although there were no broken bones, he did pop his shoulder out of joint and back in during the crash. He was injured pretty badly and had road rash on his hands, knees, and right arm. When I first saw him, he was in a wheel chair (he had to go get X-rays on his shoulder), and looked so pale.
Half of his face was swollen up, from his forehead across his right eye and cheek and there was a deep cut under his lips. The first thing the kids said was: "WOW...." (from a distance).
5 to 10 minutes after we got there he started to get his color back. We were talking, making some comments and joking around about the ordeal.
The nurse came in to scrub his wounds to clear out all the dirt and pebbles. Mr. TRH winced and said, "Oh, this is the part I wasn't looking forward to..." Then, I sang a song for him:
Do you really wanna make me cry...
(this is an 80's song just in case you don't know). Mr. TRH started to shake, he was laughing and in pain at the same time.
Also, he started to sing "I got a dream" off the movie "Tangled". That has been our family's favorite song lately, and the part of the lyrics was perfect for what he looked like. It goes;
Plus something here that oozes
And let's not even mention my complexion
As he was singing, he was pointing at all the injuries on his body. The kids started to laugh and they were singing it together.
The doctor and the nurse might have thought that we are an odd family, but that's how we roll most of the times. :)
We were talking that the accident could have been much worse. We were so grateful that even though he is still in pain, it is not life threatening.
There is never a dull moment in our household. I just keep sending signals out there so that good and exciting things will come to our way.
Well, I am off to spend time and take care of my husband. I will see you at the next post!
