I am Grateful

September 23, 2017

My poor sweet momma and our beloved clinic manager was just in a bad car accident. I think she is going to be ok, a broken femur is all we know so far. We're at the hospital and they're doing a ct scan to look for other injuries. She is in a lot of pain and on a lot of drugs. You are all part of this family and should know these important things. I'm sorry to bring such bad news. I will keep you posted as soon as I know more.

Addendum: the femur is broken up near the hip, it's a spot called the trochanter and its shattered. She has 2 broken ribs and air in her chest around the lungs (pneumothorax). Her fibula is also broken. Seeing my mom in so much pain is torture, but I know she will be ok. In the midst of all this my mind keeps going to the earthquake and hurricane victims with similar and far worse injuries, but no pain meds and no help. This is a terrible thing that happened, but I am grateful.
