In the Blink of an Eye....

I was having a girls overnight with my best friends Penny and Mandi, and the next thing you know I am on my way home (two and a half hours away) to the hospital.  My BIL was in a head on collision this morning in which both drivers had to be cut out of their vehicles.  He was stat flighted to University Hospital, where the most significant traumas in our region go.  He was in surgery for eleven hours.  First there was a neurosurgeon, then a team of plastic surgeons.  The doctors were excellent, but minced no words about how he was far from being out of the woods yet, and this still could be fatal.  He will need other surgeries, but those will not be decided upon until his condition stabilizes.

I've briefly touched on here about some personal struggles I've had with my sister and her husband, but my heart is breaking for her.  I held her while she sobbed today.  I would appreciate any prayers you guys have.

Thanks.

I came over from ChiTown Girl's blog, and am praying with you and your family. SO glad that you have such a kind, hilarious friend coming to be with you during this time. God bless you and your family. May He bring healing, comfort and restoration, wherever it is needed.
