"I have been in an accident, I have been in the hospital since 7pm"
At first we thought it was Kieffer who left a message... my kids sound a lot alike...
So Sam called Kieffer
"Are you Okay?"
"Ya I'm okay why?"
"Then Kris is in Desert Regional Hospital in Palm Springs, he has been in an accident!"
"Dad I am close by... Kevin and I will run over there"
"Ok, Mom and I are our way, Kameron has already left to go"
"Ok, I'll let you know how bad it is when I get there"
Kieffer calls us back "Ok, I'm not going to lie to you, he is pretty jacked up, there is blood all over his face, huge gash on his head, road rash across his back and his leg isn't broken but it looks like it is... his ankle is as big as a grapefruit
I guess Kris and this girl Crystal were in her new car [Mazda something or other] she was showing off, blew a stop sign, hit a bump, they went up in the air, came down and started fishtailing, they started rolling, both were ejected from the car...
When we arrived at the hospital, Sam and I went to see Kris expecting a totally mangled face... but the nurse had cleaned Kris up... his face was fine... all the blood Kieffer must have seen was from his head injury... which took 7 staples to close up... His ankle is a mess... he won't be able to walk for weeks...
He is on my couch right now... The girl he was with is still in the hospital with head injuries...
Last night Kris said something to me I will never forget...
I said "Kris, have you called Loni?"
[his bio Mom who acts like a drunken college student or thinks she is anyway, who drains his bank account to go to the casino... trust me on this statement... the word Mom should never be used in conjuction with Loni... because she doesnt know what the word means... a Mother wants what is best for her child and Loni only wants what is best for Loni...
"No I am gonna wait for a few days"
[because she is a drama Momma]
"Ok... I hate to say this... but I don't want her in my house Kris... I'm sorry"
"Mom...don't even worry about it... I understand..."
"I know but I feel bad saying that Kris, I really do"
"Mom, what you want is more important to me, YOU are more important... and you always will be"
Whoa.... blow me over with a feather...
If I hadnt been so tired at 1am in the morning I would have started crying... I have raised this child as my own since he was two years old! The teenage years were NOT fun... If I had a dollar for everytime I heard "I hate you" well you know! Loni fought me every step of the way...
Example: I spent $5000 on Krisorthodontics, the most out of all my kids... He had to wear neckgear 8 hours a day... she took him for the weekend [after being an hour and a half late at the meeting area... if I had a dollar for everytime she did that I'd be rich too] She didnt make him wear it so I sent her an email
I just wanted to let you know how Kris not wearing his headgear affected my end. He had to make up extra hours and I became the bad guy. That is not fair. Please make sure he wears it in the future when he is with you. This is in his best interest.
I'm sorry but I forgot. I think it is more important to have a little bit of fun than get all stressed out on whether the kid wears headgear or not. He didnt choose not to wear it we just forgot. [there was a bunch more snotty stuff but I forgot most of it now... I actually still have the emails because I was floored]
In the future, I am not going to 'stress out' about him not wearing his headgear when he is with you... I'll be secure in the knowledge that when the ortho tacks on extra time Kris will know its not because of me.
She fought me on everything every step of the way... anyway how did this become about her... Eeewwww...
I gotta go now...
Send prayers Kris' way, he is going to be hurting quite a while...
Whoa ouch.... and someone get me a brush...
And the police said they didnt think Kris was ejected from the car... uh ok... where did the road rash come from?
He is lucky to be alive... Thank you Grampa!
