2 Years After Gino's Horrific Accident

My 3 boys
We remember this day 2 years ago when Gino was in an accident. Yes, it has been a long 2 years. 

A truck took him down when he was cycling.He suffered skull and spinal fractures.

It is in our past. But we remember this day purely to see how much we've grown as a couple, as a family and as individuals. 

Borrowing the words of a wise friend, "Healing isn't a bed of roses, it isn't a fluffy fairytale. It is tiring, gruesome and painful." So true! We are very grateful that all has healed well. 

The positives that have come out of this experience are many. Firstly, Gino is back riding his bike.
Secondly, we have become lots more aware of what we eat as a family and how nutrient dense food is like medicine to the body. Thirdly, we saw how our families and friends rallied around us. Lastly, we learnt tremendously as physios in the rehab of an individual with spine and skull fractures.

Oh yes! And our precious gift of a second son early this year.

We are grateful everyday for our lives, our health and each other.
