So I get the call. The call to duty as it has become. As soon as Beth said they were in a wreck I was out the door. so fast that I forgot shoes, and Oliver in the back yard. As I'm pulling out of my neighborhood I have to pull over for an ambulance. scared. the. shit. out. of. me! So I call Beth, as I'm following the ambulance, to make sure its not coming for them, she said no but it was still going in the direction of where they were. Turns out it was another accident, a pretty bad one- head on collision, firemen helping people on the ground- multiple ambulances and fire trucks. So I'm on the phone with my mom freaking out because car accidents of any kind make me crazy. I finally get to Austin and Beth. They were stopped behind someone waiting to turn into a parking lot and a kid behind them wasn't paying attention (probably texting, which I am seeing on a daily basis and becoming somewhat of a honking vigilante, I honk and yell at them for putting my life in danger with their stupidity) anyway his truck slammed into the back of the hummer sending it into the back of the car in front of them. As soon as I got there an ambulance did come, Beth's neck was hurting and she was sitting with her legs up in the seat and her knees hit the dashboard so she decided to go to the hospital to get checked out. I rode with her in the ambulance, which would soon prove to be a life threatening decision. So everyone knows not to stop on train tracks right? wrong. The freaking guy stops the ambulance right on the tracks and guess what HERE COMES A TRAIN! he reversed it right before the arms went down. stupid ass almost had three more patients. Jimmy and Austin stayed to get everything cleared up at the scene.
We finally make it to the hospital.. at the same time as the ambulances from the other wreck. So poor Beth has to lay on the stretcher in the hallway for like ten minutes. I was glad I got to see that the people from the other accident weren't seriously injured. Then she got a free eye brow wax! kinda. The firemen were so cute trying to take off the tape that was holding her head to the board, joking about an eyebrow wax. I felt bad for Beth because from her position on the stretcher she couldn't see all of the hotter than hot, hotties in the hospital. I swear I felt like I was on an episode of Grey's Anatomy. Every, and I mean every fireman, police officer, and paramedic looked like he belonged in a calendar! We finally got into a room and a doctor checked on her. Then we got moved to the "kiddy korner", I told Beth it was because they saw that she was 5ft and assumed she was a child. As soon as we were alone Beth shared that she had left the house sans bra. We were cracking up! I assured her that the straps holding her to the board were really working for her, you couldn't tell at all. We waited for what seemed like forever for her to get x-rayed. (this post is taking me forever to write because the RANGERS ARE GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES!!!!) back to it.. Austin and Jimmy came to the hospital to get Austin's neck looked at. Austin and Beth are fine, just sore and frustrated. They both got some meds and we left. Everyone at College Station Medical was beyond helpful. It was actually an enjoyable experience, Beth would probably tell you differently but I have never been in an ER and I would feel comfortable coming there for an injury. They were funny, and really nice and knew that it was scary to be there and were very accommodating!
Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure..
As you can tell from Beth's pictures, I did a great job of keeping her happy and entertained. AND I had a test today but because I spent all night at the hospital I didn't have to take it! In the spirit of positivity I'd like to to leave you with some good things that came out of these events.. I now know where the hospital is, plenty of eye candy in the ER, everyone survived, and I postponed a test. pretty sweet if you ask me.
