Unbelievable

Girlfriend leaves for work on her bicycle this morning, I get a call from her @ 8:00 AM (10 minutes after she left) and I almost ignored it.

Answer the phone wondering why she's calling me and it's some unknown womans voice asking if this is Mike. I say yes and she tells me that my girlfriend Calle got hit by a car. I asked where and ran out of the house half dressed to my Taco.

Get on scene and there are so many people surrounding her I couldn't even see her. Paramedics get everyone out of the way and tell me t okeep my distance.

Long story short car hit her doing 35, head through the windshield (no helmet) and then rolled 10 feet or so.

Get to the hospital and she is awake and talking, after all the scans she has no breaks, no concussion, no neck/spine/back damage. Sprained her ankle severely (baseball size swelling on the ankle), 3 inch gash in her neck and a pretty good beating to her left side.

Not so much looking for prayers/support for my girlfriend, but looking for prayers that more car accidents involving bicyclist/pedestrians turn out like this.

It's been an extremely long day, just now settling down (she is home) and decided to write this up while it is still fresh in my mind.

I am by no means religious, but something/someone was watching over her today.

I am glad to have my girl at home and safe, I hope that more accidents end this way. She is extremely lucky.

Not sure how to end this post...

Glad she's okay. Nothing scarier than coming up on a scene combining a loved one(s) and first responders and not knowing the situation.

And I don't want to be a dick, but perhaps rethinking the helmet situation from now on might be wise...

You're not being a dick. Helmet is a definite must from now on.

If she approves I will post a picture of what she looked like when we first got into the ER. It's amazing how untouched she looks/is compared to the damage on the car.

I spoil her as is, but at this rate I think she won't mind staying home from work indefinitely.

She sounds lucky! Glad to hear she's ok. On the other hand my teacher at school wrecked his bike and seperated his shoulder this weekend. he didn't come out so lucky.

I have reminded her numerous times today how lucky she is. I am grateful for the luck she had today, it could have been so much worse than it is.

Even then, she is in a lot of pain and the vicodin isn't doing much for her.

Keep an eye on her. Head injuries can rear their ugliness later. My mom's uncle was hit by a car in the 90's and was checked out by the ER and 3 days later he was back with a subdural hematoma,.

She had brain scans done first thing upon arrival at the ER.

I read through that article very quickly but it does not seem like that would slip through a MRIs and CAT scans.

Best advice if she was unconscious or could have a concussion, keep an eye on her. The ER should have given you a sheet with what to be on the lookout for.

And though nothing may show on the CT or MRI, that doesn't mean there's no injury. The more time that passes since the initial injury though, the less you have to worry--again, the ER should have given you something to read with after-care info.

I have tons of papers regarding at home care. And I have looked at the majority of it. Looking at the rest of it now I don't see any paper similar to what you are indicating.

She was never unconscious during the whole ordeal. Although, with this new information, I will give her primary care doctor a call in the morning to see if there was something I missed or a misunderstanding.

So happy to have her home and resting right now, she's pretty miserable while she is awake
