Well this will be a pictureless post. So Saturday night my friend Ruby got into a car accident and I found out about it Sunday evening. When I first heard I was VERY sad. It was really scary hearing about it, but Janine had already gone to visit her and said she was alright. Even though she reassured me that she's doing fine it still made me sad and I cried a bit thinking about it. I think I was so scared because a classmate's older brother died earlier this school year from a situation similar to the one that Ruby was in.

I didn't know the details until I visited her today. This is the second time I've actually gone to the hospital. Both times visiting someone, but last time it was with a friend to visit her father. This time I was actually visiting because someone I care about was there. Ruby is still in the hospital right now :[ She was coming back from Disneyland with her boyfriend and boyfriend's older brother. It was past midnight so I guess everyone was tired and her boyfriend's older brother fell asleep at the wheel (everyone else was also asleep). It sucks though, because Ruby got it the worse. Both her boyfriend and his older brother were out of the hospital on Sunday.

When I went today it was very sad seeing her on the bed. It wasn't too bad at first, we talked and hugged. She also had a nintendo 64 to play so we did that together for a little until she started to eat. After eating a bit she got up to use the restroom and that's what made me sad. She fractured her ribs and back, had bruised lungs, and legs were pretty bruised up also. So when she got up she was struggling in so much pain even with a walker. While she came out of the restroom her boyfriend also came into the hospital room and we talked for a little. I got up to help Ruby while lover and her boyfriend talked. Ruby struggled to get back onto the bed and even though she was in so much pain I know she was trying to be strong. Lover and I had to leave so we hugged her and left.

I am tired right now because we went to Irvine and found out we were at the wrong place, so we spent an hour or so trying to figure out how to get to the UCI Medical Center. It's not even IN Irvine, it's in Orange (the city). By the time I got back home it was around 7:41pm and I didn't get the chance to practice driving, again. I suppose it was worth it though, I got to see her. I'm taking my driving test next Monday, a day before Ruby's 18th birthday. I'm hoping I can pass and we can do something even if she's still stuck in a bed. I just wanted to share a bit about that, not that a lot of people actually read this. It's just scary how easily things like this can happen and how lucky we are if people are able to stay in our lives. I'm a bit angry at her boyfriend's brother, but I'm happier she's still alive.
