Haven't been online lately since I'm having problems sitting for any length of time, but was downstairs to order more diaper covers (my big 9 pounder has already outgrown hers!) and wanted to stop by and let everyone know we're still around...<br><br>
We were in a pretty serious car accident last Saturday, and fortunately walked away with only minor injuries. Someone ran a red light and smashed into the front quarter panel drivers side of our car. Dan (DH) was driving and is hurting pretty bad in his back (this is his 5th car accident-none his fault- in a year and half!!) I was in the back middle and Peri was in her Britax Marathon behind the passenger seat.<br>
I was thrown into the carseat a little and have some back pain, shoulder and neck pain, but most noticeably, it increased my lochia and I have a rather large vaginal hematoma that makes it PAINFUL to sit- it's like sitting on a big sore softball <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Since everything is so painful down there, I can't feel the urge to urinate, so I also have a bladder infection now as well.<br><br>
Peri has some torticollis (sp?) that she may have had anyway, and is going to the chiro for adjustments and cranial sacral work this Friday. She is spitting up quite a bit today and we're waiting to hear from the pediatrician about whether it could be related to the accident and cause for worry.<br><br>
Anyway, please keep us in your thoughts and send positive energy our way as we deal with the stress of this and heal. Poor DH thinks he is a target now that he's had so many wrecks. It's really getting to be scary <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Hope everyone is doing great. I wish I could sit here and read through the past 2 weeks at all I've missed!<br><br>

Wow, sending prayers your way. Glad everyone was ok. . I was hit head on a week before I delivered DS1. . car wrecks are never any fun, but even scarier when you have LOs.

I'm so sorry to hear this, and your poor DH- That would just drive me nuts, I can't imagine 5 in a year. Has he heard of the Law of Attraction? That which you focus upon, you draw to yourself. So thinking you're a target could actually make you become one- He might be right- eek!<br><br>
We wish you speedy, uncomplicated recoveries. Stay in bed, relax, and know we're all rooting for you! Try to convince him he's not a target- that must be scary!

Oh, Manda, so sorry to hear this. I remember how your poor DH had already had a rough time with the car & now this... Hope Peri is fine & that you & your DH recover in a reasonable time - although the emotional recovery can be tough.

so sorry that you went through that!<br><br>
My friend's DH has been in 4 accidents (none his fault) in the last 1.5 years.<br><br>
He has been feeling like a target as well, since every accident involves someone crashing into him!!<br><br>
That is so scary. Hopefully this will be the last one for a while!!
