Settling down

Things are settling down here. Someone up there was looking out for my son. He is feeling aches & pains from being hit by a car & flying backwards onto the street. He said he does not remember the actual moment of impact. He saw that it was going to happen, somehow remembered hearing that one should try to swerve with the direction of the thing that is going to hit you. He said he tried to not tense up.

I volunteered to go back to the driving to pick him up from after work again.
A 14 mile round trip commute at 10 pm for now. We are still waiting to hear when his workplace closes down if he will still work security there, or what.

Just still so thankful that he walked away from that accident in one piece.

Ain't it the truth ... it's times like those that make you realize what's really important.

Amazing that your son had the presence of mind to remember to swerve with (not into) the vehicle bearing down on him. He lessened the impact MPH greatly by doing that.

What DK says is so right on the money. He had amazing presence of mind - and he probably knows a lot about bicycle saftey - still, he kept his cool and that probably saved his body, his life. Screw the bicycle.

Big hugs to you, Fran.

so glad that he is okay...phew...big big sigh....he instinctively knew what to might be set aside in his mind for a little bit- that is what the body and mind do to heal....

many hugs to you
