I'm pretty shaky still, a terrible thing happened yesterday afternoon!
We got a call from Desiree , my oldest daughter, saying that Astrid, my other daughter just had been hit by a car and that we come there quick!!!!!!!!
I'm sure you can imagine how scared I was. I didn't know how bad she was hurt etc. They wheren't far away as they just left on their bikes to visit a friend. I jumped on my bike and went to them. It was very near by but it was the longest ride of my whole life! All kinds of terrible things went through my head.
There where allready a lot of people helping, somebody called for an ambulance, another one was leading the traffic and another one was with Astrid. She was laying in the grass and was awake. She seemed to be ok, only her back and legs where hurting. The man from the car she has been hit by said that he hit her bike and she did fly through the air and landed on his front window. He was also very upset. Desiree couldn't stop crying as she saw it all. Then soon after that the police came and the ambulance. They checked her there and because of her back they brought her to the hospital. I went with them and Marcel came wit our own car. In the hospital they checked everything and also made photo's. They told her she was very, very lucky that the man didn't drove hard and that she landed on the grass and not on the road so now she has nothing broken. She really hurted her muscles and she is bleeding on her arm, a leg and foot because the skin is gone for small parts. They all took care of that and after a couple of hours we came back home.
We where still shaky , she was too. But we're all so thankfull that she is fine as it could have easily ended completely different.Today I can't stop thinking about all the terrible things that could have happened to her, and that we where very, very lucky! She sure must had a guardian angel with her!
She is doing fine now, only a little bit sore and her back is still hurting a bit.
The man that hit her called yesterday to ask how she was doing and just now he also called to see if she's allright. he told me that he was so upsett that he couldn't sleep well last night as he was thinking about the accident all the time and how terrible it was.It's real nice of hime to call and show he cares of what happened to Astrid.
I wanted to finish my banner but I just didn't feel like it. So maybe tomorrow I can finish it.
