"As the ambulance arrived I was feeling the Holy Spirit flow into me, quickening my body and giving me strength!
Strength to get out of the car with the paramedics help. What an Awesome feeling that was! Though I still was not able to stand on my own without the paramedic holding me steady, but I was so Thankful that God gave me the strength to get out of the car and stand so that I was not going to be put on a stretcher!
So I walked. I was in so much pain and the paramedics were walking along with me to the ambulance. I decided to try to ignore the pain by talking to the paramedic. I said to him 'you look really young, you look like you just got out of high school'. He said 'no he had been doing this job for several years'. The drive to the hospital was a nightmare! I was feeling every bump the ambulance hit, and that was a bumpy ride. It seemed like she had taken the long route to the hospital and the way with the most potholes.
My body was going in and out of feeling. I was feeling so light headed, and I was refusing to allow my body to shut down and not respond, so I told the paramedic what kind of work I did and I also let him know that 'compared to your job, my job is boring'. Then I asked him 'what is the most difficult thing you have seen? Something that almost made you want to give up or quit? Or did you have a time like that and you wanted to share because you are still feeling pain?' Even in pain I still was trying to relate to someone and help them out.
Now we arrived at the hospital.
I am not able to take deep breaths, almost about to pass out while getting out of the ambulance. While coming into the hospital I am still having a silent conversation with my body, telling it not to collapse and to stay strong. I am still not entirely sure what is going on. I was having flashbacks 'why was this truck coming toward my car?' and 'why was the other driver staying in his Truck, not wanting to get out?'. Then when I was walking to the ambulance I remember the driver of the truck came up to me, after he was seeing me in so much pain, and said "I am so sorry that I did that to you."
