Default We had a miracle here tonight

My daughter Nikki, was in a car accident...At the height of rush hour, she went on the highway,lost control,and went across the 3 lanes of the highway,and hit the median...No other car was involved., miraculously!

She is in the hospital,getting xrays, but all seems to be good at this point.She realizes how lucky she is, and, so do we. Hug,someone you love tonight, I will....xoxox

I so happy to hear that she or anyone one else was severely injured.

Wishing her a quick recovery.

Is there any idea why she lost control?

Take care,
Mike

Trip,

Miracles obviously occur and thank the Lord above that she was a recipient of one of them.

Now you can go to bed and sleep the sleep of the contentedly exhausted!

I'm sorry, I did not know about the accident until now. I hope she had a restful night, and will not be to sore this morning.

How very scary! Yes, miracles do happen, and I'm glad Niki received one of them. She'll probably be physically sore and maybe mentally, too, after such a horrific experience. Please tell her I'm glad she's safe and wish her a full recovery very soon.

Yikes, Thank God she is ok. Miracles do occur and sometimes we forget that. Once in awhile, we get a gift from above.

I just want to express my thanks for all your kind words..there is no doubt about how our Cruisemates pull together...for this, I send out, a big smooch and a hug...!!

From my morning post:

It's cold,raw,and rainy, but for us the sun is shining brightly! When Nikki came back from the hospital, we saw the results of the accident, which was due to hydroplaning n the wet road. She is burned,on her arms, and, face from the bags exploding, she must have bitten her tongue, lips and inside her mouth, so that's swollen...the xrays showed no damage to her neck or back..She seemed still in shock, and greatful. To think that at that time of day, she was not hit, or didn't hit another car, is monumental. Good samaritans helped on the scene, till the ambulance came. Even at the hospital er, she said a total stranger, an 85 yr old woman, was holding her hand. The car was totaled, but my daughter wasn't...we really did have a miracle.

Thank you all, for your good thoughts for us...xoxoxo

Trip, I am so sorry to hear that this happened to Nikki. Thank God for the miracle that kept her from being hurt worse than she was. Prayers and good thoughts on the way.

Wow, what a terrifying experience and amazing escape, somebody up above was certainly looking after her.

We hope that she makes a full and rapid recovery,

If ever there were proof needed that we have guardian angels, this story would be it! She must have been terrified, I'm so glad it turned out like it did.

Wow I missed this thread how scary and lucky. I'm glad she didn't hit anyone and she is going to be okay. Always check your tires and don't drive on bald tires. This may not have been what cause her to hydroplane, but it can make hydroplaning more likely. My hubby worked at a tire store and it's scary the tires some people are driving on. It's wonderful to see how the Good samaritans will appear in times of trouble. We saw a lot of wonderful people during the big earthquake we had.

I'm glad your daughter is okay. I always worry about my kids even though they are now adults and 2 of them are out on their own. She must have a wonderful angel looking after her.
