Grateful

Ok so on Friday night hubs got into an accident on 80. In our new car we got a week ago. Winston was also in the car. 

 <br> they are both ok. The car is not. I regularly attempt to show gratitude for

what I have in my life, but getting the call from the paramedics that my husband was in an accident and can I get to the hospital makes one realize how quickly things can change. Nothing is guaranteed in life. Hug your people and animals extra close and try to remember how important they are even if they annoy you at your holiday gathering.

Re: Grateful

  • You're very right. Things like that are super scary but really put life into perspective. So glad to hear they're ok!
  • Omg, how scary!! I'm so sorry that happened, but SO glad your hubs and Winston are ok. Your poor new car... Wow, just so thankful you guys are ok.
  • SOOOO happy they are both ok!! We took the dogs with us to the Bay Area yesterday and I had this weird panic attack about getting in a car accident with them and what would happen.

     Can I ask-What did happen with Winston? If your hubby with the paramedics to the hospital what did they do with him?

  • How scary!  I'm glad they're both doing OK.  Hugs to you.
    I'd rather be rock climbing or playing volleyball

  • Ugh, sorry you had to go through that and I am glad he and your dog are ok.

  • Tory after making sure Colin was ok Winston was the most stressful thing about the situation. They took him to an after hours drop box at an animal shelter. Like a big PI box for animals. It was awful. We couldn't get him until 10am Saturday.

    OMG.. thats horrible. I'm so glad your husband and Winston are ok. I worry about my pups in an accident as well (and my husband.. but he at least has airbags and a real seatbelt), and make sure they are buckled in to some degree (not as good as human seat belts, but some device to make sure they don't go through the windshield.). 

  • Yes

     Thinking of you and Colin and Winston.

  • Good perspective.

    I'm glad to hear they're okay...

  • That is so scary! Thank goodness they are okay!

  • I'm so sorry they had to go through this. What a terribly frightening experience for all :(
  • I'm so glad they're all right! I'm so sorry for you given how scary it was. It's horrible when you get that call. I have been there with DH when we were still dating. His car flipped over and he landed upside down. And he was already in a wheelchair so it was super scary. I am sorry your car didn't fare well, esp a brand new one. Lots of (((((((((HUGS)))))))))
  • Yikes. It was bad enough to take him to the hospital, huh? How did it happen? Poor pups. Glad everybody was OK though.

    Regarding the grateful thing, lately I've been thinking that life is so good it's like a movie where everything is happy and people are in love... and then it turns into horror movie. You know, like in Wolverine when he's working as a logger and living with the teacher he's madly in love with in a cabin in the Canadian Rockies and then they kill her off. Makes me appreciate what I have (and now I'm babbling).

    My favorite place on earth: The Amargosa Valley.

  • Wow! I'm so glad your husband and dog are okay. That sort of phone call is something I tend to worry about sometimes. Thanks for the reminder to appreciate what we have. I really needed it today.
  • That must have been so scary, I'm so glad that they're both okay!
  • Poor Winston!! I guess it's good they took him somewhere where he was safe, but uh-it's like Doggie prison!!

     Again, I'm so glad they are both ok!
