This is a blog about entertaining with style. So why the Saab? A week ago I was driving south on the Merritt and lost control of my car, crossed two lanes and flipped my car. Terrifying. Epic. I don't recommend it.
I was pinned upside down by the roof and my seat belt while kind strangers ran up to the side of my car convinced I would be dead. Thank god for Saabs!
I was cut out of the car by the fire department and taken by ambulance to the Stamford Hospital ER. I had a concussion, swelling (my face looked like a character out of Avatar), and bruises, but was so so so lucky. My Jack Russell Terrier, Auggie, also flipped and was fine. Amazing.
I have spent the last week laying low (yes I do my blog posts in advance - so no lack of party fun) and counting my blessings. Still can't quite believe it happened, though I do remember every minute of the crash.
Everyone has been kind, but a few folks were extraordinary in the care that they showed me and my dog! With profuse thanks: New Canaan Fire Department, New Canaan Police Department, Mary, Dixie, Rom, Lucia, Thaddeus and Jenn. Thank you! The black eyes are fading, the swelling is gone, but this is a life changing event for sure.
Not to worry, back to party posts on Monday!
