Auntie Em's Guide to Life

A guide to all the important things in life- marriage, family, cooking, gardening, reading, travel, Christian living… And whatever else grabs my attention!

Ah, November…

on December 2, 2012

If you’ve read Sunshine’s “substitute” post, or my Facebook page, you know we had a little too much excitement last weekend– my husband, Mr X, was in a serious motorcycle accident while riding with a friend. He’s going to be okay; he spent 3 days in the hospital and has a broken nose and 3 broken ribs. He also had a small pneumothorax (air between the lungs and lining that can lead to a collapsed lung; fortunately his dissipated before we left the hospital) and internal bleeding leading to a large hematoma inside his pelvis. It quit bleeding and will eventually absorb. In the meantime, he’s stiff and sore, and moving slowly, but thank God, he’s moving! His friend was also injured but able to walk– stiffly– away.

I went back to work Thursday and Friday, and haven’t had a minute to write anything, or any spare brain cells that are really working that well– so I decided to do a month-end statistics report. As non-mathematical as I am, somehow I love studying statistics!

Check out some of these posts if you haven’t yet, and hopefully this week I will get some new words down. In the meantime, I appreciate all your prayers, and please keep them up! As I said on my Facebook page, the fellowship of believers (All over the world!!) is a sweet and powerful thing!

  1. Wow! So glad he’s gonna be ok! My husband rides too. 🙂 Linda ❤

    • Auntie Em says:

      Thanks Linda! I hope he wears protective gear– Looking at how the helmet and jacket were torn up, I know if he hadn’t been wearing them, our story would have a much different ending.

      • Oh my, yes he wears a helmet. I do too when I ride with him. We don’t have to here in Pa. but we do. By the way, I sent you a message via facebook. Whenever you get sometime…thanks! Love your blog/!

  2. My husband has ridden since he was 16, and I started riding along as a passenger when we met over 30 years ago. We all know the risks, but drive with as much care and awareness as we can, as well as plenty of prayer. So glad your hubbie and his friend are ok. Leather and helmets are a biker’s best friend!

    • Auntie Em says:

      He says it’s the best hobby he’s ever had, and he’s loved every minute until the wreck– he’s selling the bike now, though– that’s a good thing for me. It’s lost all its appeal! I am more aware than ever, though, of the need for prayer for all the bikers I see!

  3. Phew! Praise God He is going to be fine. Sorry you and him had to go through this. Visiting from MM party,have a super blessed week!

  4. Lori says:

    Glad your Mr. X is going strong – hope the recovery period is quick!

  5. thoughtsfromanamericanwoman says:

    Been praying and thankful all of our prayers were answered in this way – how scary. Blessings – Patty

  6. Wow! I’m so thankful that Mr. X will be able to ride another day! I’m sure you were both pretty shaken and you’re probably holding onto to him a little tighter right now.
    Thanks for listing your posts…I’m off to check them out!
    Thanks for stopping by WtoW!
    Blessing to you!
