Treasure every moment

Today was a scary day for us. It started out like every other day. Jesus kissed me goodbye and headed off to work and I got up to get the kids up and ready for the day. About 10 minutes after I got up I got a phone call. Jesús was on the other line "Alison, I've been in an accident, Im ok, I need you to come get me at the Chevron by the old Mesa Marin." I of course just grab the kids and the bag, everyone in their pajamas, and head to the car in a mad dash.

I called my Mom as I was getting the kids buckled in and told her what was going on and she told me to meet her and she would take the kids and I would take her car. We did this and I took her car to the accident. When I got there, Jesús was standing there with a Sheriff and a couple other people. I got out and saw his knuckles were all scraped and bleeding and he was holding his arm. His clothes were torn. I was so scared. Information was collected and then the fire truck and the ambulance showed up and he was strapped to a board and put in the ambulance. I wasnt able to tell him goodbye or that I loved him as they shut the doors. My dad helped me with the motorcycle and I headed back to my Moms to check on my kids and change at our place and run to the hospital.

When I got to the hospital and was waiting for them to take me back to him, it felt like hours. Finally they took me back and I got to see him and kiss him. He told me that there was a broken bone in his hand that they knew of for sure and that they were waiting until the rest of the results came back until they could take the neck brace off. His hands were torn all over and the bandages they had on his bigger and much more serious scrapes were starting to bleed through his bandages. They let me stay with him the whole time. They took him away for maybe 10 minutes to X-ray his foot which was hurting him. They came back and told us he had two broken toes and would need a splint on his foot and leg and they would need to set the bone in his hand, put a splint on his hand and arm.

We waited while they prepped for that and then they came to numb his hand so that he wouldnt feel the serious pain from setting the bone. It all seemed to hurt him either way. Finally after he was all splinted up they discharged him. Now we are working on how he will be able to get around until they can get a cast on his leg and arm. Luckily we were able to borrow a wheel chair and that should make things much easier. We wont be going anywhere any time soon so visitors are welcome.
