Been a hell of the last 2 weeks
DD14 was in an ATV accident while she was visiting cousins in upstate NY with her dad the day after Thanksgiving. She snapped her humerus in half, lost a kidney, internal bleeding and a chest wound that has required 5 surgeries as of today.
DH and I were in the car about 2 hours north of our home in VA when we got the call that she was in the accident. The 7 hrs to get to her were brutal.
ExH and I have been with DD in the hospital for the last 2 weeks. We spend the days together with her and rotate nights. DH isn't allowed to see her even though he is here, thanks Covid.
Hopefully we will be discharged this weekend and can go home. SS21 and BS16 have been a wreck and are staying with my parents. DH told SS17 what happened with no response. Not that we are surprised.
I just have to say/brag on my husband. He is so good to us. He has been the errand boy and my shoulder to cry on without complaint. I don't know what I would have done without him and honestly if roles were reversed I don't think I could handle being in his shoes (not that BM would have even told him, let alone them spend 12 hrs a day together).
DD is the star of the hospital. Nurses argue over who gets her, nursing students have made her presents, surgical staff snag her- she is just so positive and funny and has been a Rockstar through it all. Even in ICU, she was just amazing.
I can't wait to get home and start to put this nightmare behind us. PSA- don't let your kids ride 4-wheelers!!!! Nothing is worth this.
