Just when life is going great.... BAMN!

My daughter was in a car accident.

The past 4 days have been very stressful. As I was cooking dinner on Tuesday and getting things ready to try making hot pepper jelly we got one of those awful phone calls.

The one where they tell you where the ambulance is transporting your loved one because they were in a car accident on the highway. What a sickening feeling.

We have been keeping round the clock vigil, I am a firm believer in family and love fostering better care and faster healing.

She is doing well, sustained some low back injury causing swelling and spinal bruising. Those swollen nerves cause huge amounts of pain, numbness and weakness. They injected steroids into her spine and things are slowly improving. Keeping our fingers crossed that tomorrow she can walk and then we get to go home.

Pet Therapy, made her happy :)

Flowers from all of her friends!

Bear went to the OR with her for her procedure.

The smashed car...

Hug your loved ones every day and tell them how much you love them! You never know what may happen.

  1. Wishing your daughter a quick recovery to a pain-free life. Looks like a mean accident. I hope she can return home soon.
