In Need of Prayer
« on: August 18, 2007, 06:42:42 PM »

My sister's husband was involved in a very serious accident on Wednesday. His car was hit on the passenger side by an 18 wheeler, and he suffered head injuries, a collapsed lung and broken ribs. He's heavily sedated and the doctors don't know what his prognosis is yet. So any prayers, entreaties to deities, ability to tap into The Force or just positive thoughts sent her way would be much appreciated.

They've been married for 24 years and you never saw a couple more devoted to each other.

Sending my positive heling thoughts and prayers!

Do you at least live close to your sister, so that you can be with her?

Judy,

I am holding your sister and her husband in my heart and have a candle going for them. 
Let us know how he progresses,

The accident happened in Tupelo MS, and my brother-in-law is in the regional hospital there. My sister says it's very good and they're doing everything they can. Once he's stable, he will be moved to a facility that specializes in brain injury in Atlanta. He is a Mississippi native and has lots of friends and family there, so there has alwasy been someone with my sister since the ordeal began Wedensday.  Mississippi is a fairly long drive from Wilmington NC, so I'm staying here for now.  I expect I will go down to Atlanta when he's moved. I'm sure my sister will continue to need moral support through the rehab process.

There's no news yet. He's still sedated.

Thanks for your prayers. I'll keep you posted.

Looking back at the thread, I realize I said I'd keep you all posted and I didn't.  I apologize.

As you probably can guess, the outcome was not good. Ron lived for 11 days after the accident, but in reality, the person he'd been for the last 61 years ceased to exist on impact.  It was a tough time for my sister, and it still is.  The funeral was at the end of August, so she's at the point where the numbness wears off and the reality sets in. I've been talking to her most every day, as have my two other sisters. She's in good spirits, but in every call there's a silence and tears.

I appreciate your thoughts and prayers.

I am noticing that I can't go past a cross along the highway without feeling very sad for the family left behind.

Judy, I'm so sorry it turned out like that.  Sounds like your sister has wonderful support and wonderful memories.  I'll be keeping her and the rest of the family in my prayers.

Thank you for letting us know.
