Friday night, my sweet Mom was in a car accident driving home after we had a fabulous dinner out together. She's a bit fuzzy on the details, as to how it happened exactly, but she was injured pretty badly. A fracture to the C-2 vertebrae, right now, we are still waiting for it to be determined if she's going to need surgery or not. It is a scary time for us all.
We are fortunate in that my sister and I both live in the same town, and the hospital is very close to home. We are also very lucky that although the rest of Mom's family is out of town, she has a fabulous network of really close friends who are just waiting for us to determine what will need to be done and are willing to help us out in any way they can.
Mom is in pretty good spirits, although not thrilled with having to be flat on her back and immobilized. She's hungry too, as they won't let her eat until they know more. We like our good food, so that its making her a bit grouchy from time to time.
If it is your thing, I ask that you say a prayer for my sweet Momma --- that healing comes swiftly and it all works out okay.
