Monday tragedy

At 7.30 this morning I got a call from The Other Half.

I picked up the phone thinking that he’s already at work and calling me to let me know how his bike ride went.

But when I picked up, he said, “I’m involved in an accident. A car knocked me off my bike. I’m ok but I’ve got a lot of gravel burns on my body and on my face and I think I’ve broken my finger. The guy is taking me to the hospital

Sad smile Crying face

And 14 hours later, this is how he looks like

They had to put a wire in his finger to hold the bones together.

Kelam kabut I pagi tadi, hantar the girls cepat2 and zoomed off to Fremantle hospital to see him.

Dah lah hari ni, selebat2 hujan with squally winds and grey skies. Memang tak nampak apa kat jalan tadi.

I met up with him at Emergency dept and stayed with him until they took him into surgery under GA.

He dislocated his left ring finger(jari manis) with a deep gash on the ring finger exposing the tendon, suffered multiple bruises and gravel burns, tu yang they took hime to the surgery to fix his finger and clean all his wounds up properly.

They had to cut up his wedding ring to take it off sebab masa tu his finger has swollen so much.

As soon as they took him to surgery, I cepat2 balik and picked the girls up early from school.

Balik rumah, buat apa yang patut and then dropped the girls off at a friend’s house and zoomed off again to the hospital at around 4.30.

When I got there, he was out of surgery but still very groggy and tidur aje when I was there.

Ni baru balik sampai rumah lepas ambik the girls.

Kesian the girls having to stay up late tonight.

The Other Half has to stay overnight at the hospital for observation post op.

He looked really shaken up.

He said, “I like riding but I dont think I can ride again after this. It’s shaken me up really bad.

And it wasn’t even his fault, it was the car’s fault, tak nampak The Other Half because the driver was too busy looking the other way.

The Other Half said that the driver must have hit the front wheel which caused The Other half to tergolek on the bonnet of the car and rolled onto the middle of the road.

He said Alhamdulillah, other cars on the road managed to brake on time and put their hazard lights on or else memang dia dah kena gelek by other cars lah.

When I heard him said that, rasa sangat bersyukur Alhamdulillah, because he has only surface wounds and one dislocated finger.

It could have been much worse!

So, he’ll be out of action for the next one week and luckily it’s the finger on his left hand so he can still write and do things with his right hand.

farrah said...

i was hit and run (but then he kinda surrended himself to us by visiting me in the hospital) while crossing the road back in 2001. i sufferred dislocated left index finger, went into operation, but still haven't recovered until now. my left index finger still kinda 'bengkok'.

so sad, but since dah 11 tahun berlalu takpelah dah move on dah. just fikir, ada orang yang lagi malang lagi putus jari terus cannot recovered at all. at least mine still in tact walaupun agak cacat.

so sad to hear about TOH. hope he'll recover fast physically, mentally and emotionally. it took me yearssss to be able to cross the road without trembling like crazy. actually to be honest even sekarang pun masih nervous gila lagi. dugaan Tuhan untuk saya.

speedy recovery, TOH!

Gosh, so sorry to hear ( read ) your sad news, LG. Luckily, the injuries that he suffered is not more serious.Hope your hubby is feeling much better today although I'm guessing not. There are many fatal accidents involving cyclist here in NZ and it is shocking when it's due to the other party's carelessness. Hugs to you and the girls and you take care too. Get well soon to your hubby.... at least he's out of action for a week and you can pamper him. I'm sure he's looking forward to it:)

Alhamdullilah dia selamat. Speed recovery ya..Stay strong Lemongrass. They need you. My son was hit my a car middle of Feb 2011. He was 19days in General Hosp then we move him to Specialist Hosp for better treatment and was there for one and a half month. Patah tulang bahu, patah kaki and a crush heal and there's a whole sebesar bola pingpong beneth buku lali. You have to be strong my fren coz they are having pain and also truma. Doa jgn putus..Mudah2an semuanya selamat. Remember one thing: Allah x uji kita dgn sesuatu yg membebankan kita. DIA uji kita sbb dia sayang. N kalo kita rasa kita susah, sebenarnya ada org yg lebih susah dari kita, yg lebih sakit dari kita...jd Sabar banyak2 ya...regarts to TOH and get well soon...
