I Don't Think I Could Go On If Something Happens To One Of Them

A parent worst nightmare is receiving a phone call in the early morning or late night. My two oldest daughters were in separate car accidents. The first accident was in the first week of September, the second one was this past Thursday. My heart dropped each time I received that dreaded phone call and to hear your grandson over the phone crying Mommy my head hurt have you imagining the worst.

I THANK GOD my daughters and grandson did not suffer serious injuries. I never want to know what its like to loose a child before I leave this earth.

I was in a pretty bad accident about a year ago with the Mrs and 4yr old twins in the car ... on their birthday. When I had to call my Parents to come pick up the kids (who were unharmed - child seats functioned as designed), I could not imagine how terrified they were ... nearly killed me to see their distress.

Thank God for child seats and seat belts, my grandson is perky as ever and my daughter suffered severe whiplash, but she will be okay. I am happy for you and your parents. You survived for a reason and I am pretty sure you are now living each day like it is you last with meaning and purpose.

As A fellow MS suffer, I certainly do look at each day as a gift. After the accident, I quit my job and got a new one much closer to home so I could spend more time with the kids. Well worth it.
