The phone call came when dad and I were busy in the kitchen. We were getting dinner ready since mom was running late coming home from work. Then the phone rang, and dad went to answer it. It was the police, and they had some terrible news for us. When coming home, mom’s car was hit by a drunk driver, and she was at the hospital. We ran out of the door and almost forgot to turn off the stove. We got to the hospital but could not see her since she was in surgery. After what seemed like forever, a doctor came and told us mom was doing okay. Lucky for her, she only had a fractured leg and arm. But no major organs were affected by accident. A few weeks later, she was discharged, and we took her home. Mom began her healing process and had to go to physiotherapy to help with her leg and arm. However, the recovery process was not easy, and at times she was in a lot of pain. Mom did not want to take lots of pain meds, so she began using CBD oils, which offered relief. There was a weed shop a couple of blocks from our home where I went to get her some. Dad was the best all this time because he took care of her so well. Mom never had to do anything because dad had all of it under control. All he wanted was for his wife to get better. I promised mom we would do a lot of things together once she was able to go exploring.
