The Texas Antique Weekend is held twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. Hundreds of vendors from all over the United States gather along the two-lane highway from Warrenton to Round Top and beyond. You can find anything for sale. And I mean anything.
We left Round Top around 4:30 and headed back to Houston hoping to take quick showers, cool off, and order dinner in.
Marie maintained total control of her vehicle and managed to get off Beltway 8 (which is actually a three-lane access road at this point because the highway is under construction) and turned into the entrance to the apartment complex. We quickly assessed everyone in our vehicle, including Our Little Princess, and determined that no one had any visible injuries. We started looking for our cell phones, which we couldn't find because everything in the vehicle had gone flying.
The policemen who came to the scene assured us that the driver who hit us was not drunk and did not appear to be under the influence. The driver's wife arrived a few minutes later and told us that he was on his way home from work. We think that he may have fallen asleep at the wheel, since he never hit his brakes.
Katy called her OB/GYN's 24-hour hotline service on Saturday and was told to watch for specific warning signs of miscarriage. As a precaution, she saw her OB/GYN today for bloodwork and a sonogram. The baby's heartbeat was still good. They did go ahead and administer a RhoGAM shot to make sure that the trauma did not cause any complications related to the RH factor and possible mixing of blood cells between the baby and mother. We were all pretty shaken up. Yesterday my back and shoulders were extremely stiff and sore.
Marie was amazing. I would have been a basket case. She was calm, cool, and collected. She never lost her cool and took care of business. I firmly believe this story would have had a very different ending if we had been in a smaller vehicle. That Tahoe took quite a jolt. I don't think a smaller car would have fared as well. And thank God for child safety seats. A bump on her head was nothing compared to what could have been.
