Moose vs Man

On May 17,05 Josh just got off work at midnight and was heading back up to the Valley,which is about 40 miles from Anchorage. When a moose was cross the highway. I don't think he saw the moose till it was to late to do anything. The moose went up over his Focus,peeling it back like a sardine can.
A nurse had just got off work or was heading up the Valley about that same time when she saw him after he hit the moose. All he said was my name and they had to find out the phone number. She told us what happen and that they were taking Josh to the hospital.
I was so scared and I had to tell myself to keep calm and that was hard. My hubby was back at work and I had to be the strong one. But I had my other kids with me so that helped. But I did say a quick prayer.
We got to the hospital and stayed with him till they release him that same day at noon. He was doing so well for what he had just gone thru. The Lord really was watching over him that night. We thank the Lord for all that He did for our family. I still get teary eyed when I look at some of the pictures. Even doing this story with the pictures.
Here are some pictures of the accident and him today!

Lord kept him safe.

he had glass in his arm,probably where he shielded himself

he got a big cut in the back of is head..I believe it took 20 stitches to close it up.

Josh today. He is doing good and got a different job here in the Valley. No more commuting. Also they are expecting their first baby in August. Congrats to Josh and Aj. The Lord is so good!!
