Quite A Scare

And no, this scare wasn’t A this time. Grandma was here today and I was running out for a little bit to get something off of my dad at work. I took their truck and got two minutes down the road. I was turning right at a light but was stopped as the car in front of me was waiting to turn after someone crossed. I happened to look to my left and there was a car coming straight for me. His arms were straight on the wheel and he was doing about 70 coming straight for my side. Within seconds I stepped on the gas and turned the wheel to the left a bit and moved up. I held my wheel tight as I thought for sure that he was going to take the back end off. I knew there was a lady walking with her baby coming from behind and I looked back and he ended up missing me by an inch, swung hard to the left, went up over the curb and missed her and the baby by an inch! He came to a dead stop on the other side of me between a house and a pole. This happened SO fast. I was so close to death I could taste it. I kinda paused and watched him. He got out of the car, looked at it and got back in. Didn’t even say anything to the poor lady! When she walked up by me I asked if she was okay and she just shook her head. The guy put his blinker on and it kinda freaked me out so I left. I got about two minutes down the road and it hit me. I had to pull over and call my mom collect from a payphone. All I kept thinking was “Oh my god, how am I still alive? A almost didn’t have a mommy.” It was SO scary. There was definitely someone watching over me because honestly there should be NO way that I am still here.

To make things a little more freaky, I just finished reading a book last night called “Suzannes Diary For Nicholaus.” Anyone that has read this knows why today freaked me even more. I started the book Sunday night and finished it last night. Two days and then this. I think I was meant to read it considering I had it here for over a year and hadn’t touched it.

Now for some GREAT news. So A has rolled over twice which I had posted before. Well yesterday I was in the kitchen grabbing his med and came into the room and he was on his belly! About ten minutes later daddy was sitting in here with him and I heard him say “good boy!” Well turns out he missed it because he was watching a show. I grabbed the video camera and started to tape him. And I got it on video!!!! I still haven’t really looked how to download onto the computer but I could watch it over and over and over!!!!

This is how I found A the other morning in his bed…

Tummy time…

Hanging in bed with daddy…

Okay now these are exciting! His physiotherapist lays him down on his belly and brings him up so he is on his knees. She supports his head and then puts pressure down on his hands. When she lets go of his head he normally cannot hold it up at all because of the angle that he is on. Well look at my little man!!

Such an amazing kid!!!!
