I called me sister and we decided we would both head over to the hospital to see what was up. My young two year old nursling would accompany me.
At the hospital, it became clear that while the accident was not the worst case senario, it was far from the best. I met my sister in the hall and she looked upset. I asked if they were broken and bloody and she said yes; we hugged. What I would later learn is that there had been a multiple car accident involving a missed red light. The van which struck them was out of control. My parents both had multiple broken bones, abrasions, and head wounds. It would be a long recovery.
