One summers day in Wisconsin we were out on the lake in our speed boat. My dad was driving the boat. In the boat was my mom, my two cousins, and my little brother.
All of a sudden my dad lost control of the boat and it crashed into an island in the middle of the lake. I was watching them come back on the dock and I saw them crash. My older cousin rushed over on a separate boat to see if anyone was injured.
They saw that my mom was injured, she had a very large and deep gash on her leg, so they immediately got her in the car and took her to the hospital. My dad and my Aunt went with her while me and my two brothers stayed home.
Once at the hospital my mom was informed that she was going to need a lot of stitches. They put her to sleep and gave her lots of medicine. After she awoke she had gotten 30 internal stitches in her leg and 30 external stitches on the outside of her leg.
By the time they got home it was around 2:00am. Everyone else was asleep, but we had to see if our mom was okay. We were so relieved knowing that our mom was alright.
After, my mom could not move from her bed. She was in her bed for six weeks. She even needed help going to the bathroom. It was a struggle for our entire family.
