ON 7/7/2015 WE WERE EMAILED BY THE MISSION PRESIDENT AND INFORMED THAT HAILEY HAD BEEN HIT BY A CAR. WE WERE TOLD THAT SHE WAS NOT CRITICALLY INJURED BUT HAD ABRASIONS, BRUISING AND HAD HURT HER BACK. THAT'S PRETTY MUCH THE ONLY INFORMATION WE WERE GIVEN EXCEPT THAT SHE WAS IN THE CROSS WALK AND A CAR DID NOT YEILD WHEN TURNING RIGHT. WE OF COURSE WERE INSANE WITH WORRY. THIS IS THE FIRST LETTER WE RECEIVED AFTER THE ACCIDENT........
So I am alive and functioning :) let me tell you what
happened. I was crossing a street where cars turn down and there is no
light or anything so I crossed and this car came down really fast and
side swiped me. Really I was protected a lot. He didn't hit me head on
but side swiped the whole left side of my body and ran over my foot.
Luckily it was going so fast nothing happened to my foot except I have
a burn on my leg from the metal, but it's not super bad, I've been
scraped worse, and it is bruised around it. I walked away from it,
thanks to the shock, but after wards my back was in pain. I went to
the doctor and he said nothing was broken, and that I would just be
sore for s couple of days. So I came home and I was definitely sore. I
have a big bruise on my lower back so that hurt if I walked on it to
super long. Then I think my sciatica was irritated because that whole
area was irritated, sooo that was annoying but nothing too serious. I
stayed home for two days because walking all day was hard, but I've
been on A TON of ibuprofen and I ice it every time I am home. When I
wake up it hurts the worst and if I've been standing for a long time.
But I'm being really good about resting and I don't feel like anything
is damaged, just bruised. When we walk a long time I make sure I sit
down. I'm really sorry that you've been worried all week, but really I
was protected by Heavenly Father.
