Our miracle

So about a week and a 1/2 ago I got a phone call from Spencer's phone but it wasn't Spencer- Spencer had left about 40 min prior to go on a big group bike ride and it was a fellow bike rider telling me Spencer had been hit by a car on his bike and was being taken to the hospital, but he was awake and talking. When I finally got to see him at the hospital he was pretty beat up, shaking and his blood pressure was through the roof, but when he came out of the scans and x-rays he didn't even have a broken bone. The police man came to visit him at the hospital and couldn't believe how lucky he was. He said they think the car was going 40 miles an hour when it hit him. When another biker brought his mangled bike by he couldn't believe Spencer was up walking around. He said he saw the whole thing and it was like it was off a movie- the car slamming into him, him crashing the windshield and then flying high in the air and smashing down in the asphalt. Luckily Spencer doesn't remember any of it- he blacked out and when he came to he said that all these people were surrounding him telling him not to move and then some guy was praying over him- hey maybe it helped. His helmet was cracked on both sides first from hitting the car then from hitting the road. All I can say is that I really believe someone unseen was protecting him. I keep playing the possibilities of what could have happened over and over in my head and I just feel so blessed that he made it out with only some cuts and bruises.
