Mom was in a car accident last Monday. Both cars were totalled. Mom was a passenger in the back seat and wasn’t wearing her seat belt. She was thrown forward and konked her head on the headrest of the seat in front of her. She has a huge knot on her forehead and since then, has developed amazing black eyes (seen to the right in their early “red” phase). I’ve been teasing her about going Goth. She’s doing remarkably well otherwise – not anywhere near as achy as I feared she’d be. Just don’t touch her head – it’s still pretty swollen. The other people in the car are doing a bit worse, but nothing”s broken and they are hanging in there.
