This has not been a good summer for blogging. It has been one thing after another, mostly wedding stuff. But the latest is by far the worst.
David and I were in Pennsylvania last week when we got one of those phone calls every parent dreads. Our oldest daughter was in a 1 car auto accident out in Ohio where she lives with her 2 sisters. Our middle daughter called us from the hospital (fortunately she was home and able to rush over there) to let us know.
Thud went our hearts. Heavenward went our prayers.
After Xrays and a Cat Scan, the doctor found a hairline fracture in her pelvis. Fortunately the fracture is in a spot that heals quickly but will require time. Fortunately she had on her seat belt! And fortunately her sisters were there at the hospital so she was not alone. But she needed her mom and dad so we immediately headed to Ohio.
This is a picture of her Honda Civic, now totaled.
She wasn't using her phone or speeding. She just went off the side of a country road, couldn't get back on, and before she knew it, she hit some trees and a guard rail.
We are back in Massachusetts now. I didn't want to leave until I was sure she could manage crutches or walker so our last day there she was able to shower with help and use a walker. Each day she shows improvement and today was her first pain free day.
We are so thankful for all of the people who have reached out to our family in so many different ways. The prayer support has been incredible and much needed. Needless to say I am going to be needing lots of thank you cards so hopefully I can get to that soon! Don't worry I will be posting them.
