thank you heard a yell this morning. He came in to see if it was me - I wasn't quite awake yet. Jess had left a few minutes before for the bus. He opened the front door. Jessie was laying on the ground at the foot of the porch stairs. She is the one who yelled. SHE WAS HIT BY A CAR ON THE WAY TO THE BUS!!! The car was turning around in an empty driveway (house is empty - being sold) and they backed into her. Somehow she managed to make it home - about 1/8th of a mile! But she couldn't get up the steps. I grabbed my phone and sat on the steps holding her has I called 911. They sent out 3 ambulance/firemen vehicles - and then the county sheriff came and then a state trooper came to make a report. Jess is banged up - her right rib is bruised but likely not broken and her right knee is a mess. Thank heavens she had capris on so her knees were not shredded on the gravel. She will be OK in a few days, though she will hurt like heck for those few days. thank you was such a total sweetheart - brought her a blanket, offered to bring her aleve or a drink or anything he could think of while we waited for the ambulance. I called my parents' house and Wiz answered - we were waiting for the ambulance when I called. My dad drove out here faster than I knew he could drive! He ended up taking thank you to school - I was NOT having him walk up to the bus today. husband came home, and is going to do some work from here. I am still just in shock. I never, EVER expected anything like this. If she gets much worse we will take her in to the hospital later, but I don't htink it will be necessary. I did get the trooper to make a report, though Jess didn't get a good look at the car. Keep us in your prayers, that this does not get worse.
