I got served

A few months ago my son was out past his 11pm curfew and I ended up falling asleep around midnite. He woke me up around 12:45 am covered in blood. I jumped up and asked what happen he had fallen into a brush of sticks and one punctured his leg and severed a small vein. So I jumped up to take him to the emergency room, the paremedics had already triaged his leg but sent him home to avoid an ambulance bill. So as I was driving to the e.r. we took our exit and the light was red. I was in the left turning lane and to my right was a car with the driver slumped over. She was young, maybe 17 I thought at first that she was dead as I reached for my phone to call 911 i saw an officer driving by so I honked and waved, he came over and then another officer showed up. They knocked and knocked on the girls window but she wouldn't wake up. I asked if she appeared to be breathing, he said yes. They finally opened her door and removed the keys and started shaking her, she started becoming combative and was confused as to where she was and what was going on. The officer on the passenger side raised a beer bottle from the passenger seat. S o i think she passed out at the red light. The officer took my name and info and I left. Last night an officer showed up at my house and served me with a subpoena to testify as a witness. I have to appear in court on the 24th. I'm going to be so nervous having to speak in front of all those people.
I have to go make Averys lunch, and Ian (my son) is staying home sick. He says his throat hurts. I never believe him. He was up late playing video games. He's not aloud to leave the house today. I need to go to the library and return some books. Have a great day!!!

Oh my what a night you had! How old is your son?

We rarely have leftovers. If we ever do Keith thinks he won the lottery because they go in the fridge for his lunch the next day. lol

I think you would like sticky chicken. It reminds me of rotisserie chicken.

That's neat that you may get to testify. You'll be fine because all you're doing is answering questions.

Wow! I'm glad you were there and did the right thing. You are a good citizen. I hope it all goes well for you. I hope your son will get well soon.

Have a good day today!

I've been there done that with my oldest daughter when she was a teen. She was a wild child at 16 and I didn't think we would get through it, but we did. It will get better. She is now 27 and has her life all straight.

I'm sure you'll survive your court appearance just fine. :)
I've been there with my kids staying home from school when they were not sick. My son would stay up too late and couldn't get up in the morning and would pretend to be sick. Usually I'd just send him to school and told him if he felt really bad to call the school nurse and I'd pick him up.

I hope everything will turn around for your son soon.
