My husband was in a car accident

and I'm going crazy! His car was totaled and he cut his head open pretty badly and it was bleeding badly as well (so I'm told I'm still in NC while he's up in VA). I'm not there and its so hard to find out whats going on and I hate just sitting here waiting! I'm trying to find things to preoccupy my time while I sit and wait! I can hardly breath, ugh. My husband is everything in the world to me and I could never live without him. My only hope I'm hanging by is that I talked to him after the accident and he was coherent, at one point he was really dizzy and wasn't making much sense but I talked to him about 10 min later and he was back to being coherent and knew everything that was going on. That's a good sign, right? They life flighted him to the hospital but that still took an hour for them to get him there! His car is totaled so I'm sure he has some more damage somewhere on him.

Thankfully someone saw him and called 911 right away. He was out on a country road in the middle of nowhere so I'm SO thankful that girl was there. I don't even know what to do right now! I have 4 cats, 2 BIG dogs, and 2 sugar gliders here with me I don't know anyone here, we're in the middle of moving and I have no clue what to do with all the animals.

Ugh sorry that was rambling but I just needed to talk because I'm going crazy just sitting here!

oh no!!! I have no idea what I would do if I were in your position. I can only imagine that you're going insane waiting! Hang in there, you're his strength in a time like this. What happened if you don't mind me asking? Or have you not been able to find out yet? Best wishes!

Wow, my thoughts are with you too. That's terrible. I'm sure that he will be okay. As for the animals, have you looked into a boarding kennel or even a vet clinic that would be willing to board them for a few days?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Sorry you are having to go through the anxiety of waiting .
Head wounds do tend to bleed alot because of all the small capularities and
Small cuts will bleed alot. As far as him being dizzy and such, he probably has
A slight concusion from hitting his head,

Also what smrobs said about the animals, call the kennels and vets,
If they can't take them for a few days they may be able to give you the name
Of a person who pet sits.

Hope everything turns out ok.

I hope everything is going to be ok... Accidents like that are always scary and thanks goodness that someone was able to call and get him help

Stay strong

Sorry to hear about the news.

The car is the least of your worries, the most important thing was for him to have been accessed by EMS and from what you said he was so he is in good hands now. Excellent news to hear you talked to him as well.

Sending my love to your family. Please keep us posted on his recovery.
