don't ever scare me like that again!

     On October 27, 2012, Dustin and Myles were in a horrible ATV accident. Dustin was driving 60mph through a corn field with Myles on the back, they crashed right into a ditch. Myles was catapulted off the back and landed right on his face. He had seizure activity and was air lifted from the scene. Dustin was transported by ambulance to a local hospital and then transported to the same trauma hospital that Myles was air lifted to.
     So 2 of my 3 children were in this awful accident. Myles broke his jaw on both sides, his orbital floor on both sides, and his left cheek bone. He had surgery on October 29, to wire his jaw shut to allow it to heal. Even though he broke his face, he had no head trauma!, and no internal injuries. Dustin had internal bruising of his liver, pancreas, kidney and lung. They had angels watching over them I am convinced.
     I plan to put them in bubbles now, because I seriously might die if they scare me like that again! I am so very thankful that they are gonna be OK. Myles has the inconvenience of eating his food through a straw for 6 weeks, but he's gonna be just fine. No scars, no lost teeth, no head injury, no visible damage. God is so good. We are so blessed.

Yeah, I think as their mother, you’re probably the most affected. It wasn’t your fault, however, that they were allowed to ride an ATV. Maybe that was just an eye-opening experience, for them not to get too relaxed. Most often, accidents happen when we get too comfortable with what we do that we forget to anticipate things, thus they catch us unprepared.

Thank you for your kind response. I certainly an forever changed by this accident. If I have my way they will never be on an ATV again, and no I didn't allow them on it in the first place. I am however so very thankful that they are ok, and that things are getting back to normal (whatever that is!) They certainly do not realize how blessed they are. I know they had angels watching over them.
