Hi everybody. It's been a very difficult couple of weeks. My Mother-in-law and her two sisters were involved in a very serious car accident last Monday, the 5th. The car struck slush on the highway, spun 180 degrees, and was rear-ended by an oncoming car. Mom was in the backseat; the only reason Aunt Rosemary didn't go out the rear window was because her foot caught in the seatbelt. As you can imagine, the injuries are very serious. Aunt Mona was driving, and escaped with just a broken shoulder. Mom and Aunt Rosemary, however, have both taken a turn for the worse. Mom has a broken pelvis and severe internal bruising, and today it was found that she has fluid on her brain and cannot be taken off the respirator as was expected. Aunt Rosemary suffered a shattered upper femur that required surgery, and also severe internal bruising, and has recently been placed in isolation due to a massive infection. We had initially expected Mom to be awake, and Aunt Rosemary to be home, by Christmas. This most recent turn of events has been almost as devastating as the original accident. Guys, I know this isn't really the place, but the atmosphere here has always been so supportive that I didn't mind asking. Cory and I are believers in the power of positive thought and energy. I'm asking for any prayers, to whomever you may pray (thanks Merlin, I've never known how to put that before); every little bit will help. It's going to be a very difficult Christmas.
