Crossing Congress street I was hit by a cab flying down the street. Before I knew what happened I was in the air, breaking the windshield and ultimately slamming on the street.
I am glad to say that I am feeling better and was released from Mass General Hospital after a day of tests.
In my mind I must have replayed the events a thousand times. I am not angry at the driver who struck me because I know he did not start his day planning to hit a "middle aged" attorney running into court. I chose to focus on all the strangers who came to help me.
First, I would like the thank the stranger that called 911.
Next, I would like to thank the two Transit police officers that stayed with me until the ambulance arrive.
I am also grateful to the two attorneys on their way to work just like me, who came to help heard me telling the officers that I had to report to court on a trial. They offered to take care of it for me and they did. I have never met those people before but I they treated me like we were lifelong friends. Lawyers, sometimes rightly, get a bad rap but I am proud to call these two attorneys colleagues.
Then I would like to thank the Boston EMTs. They provided me not with just a ride to the hospital but also a level of much needed comfort. They were consummate professionals and a credit to all Boston EMTs.
I am also thankful to all of the Doctors and Nurses at the worlds best hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital.
I would also like to thank all of my friends that called or texted. It is nice knowing your thoughts are with me.
Last but certainly not least, my family. My dad stayed at my house all day until I got home. My aunt also stayed watching the kids. Finally, my wife Sarah Piercy Donovan for dropping everything and racing to be at my side the entire day. It would unimaginable to have a day like today without her love and support.
Sorry for the long post but when life literally blindsides you it really makes you think.
