It Can Get Any Worse

And then it does Free Smiley Courtesy of

I do have some creative stuff to show you, however it was on hold as I dealt with some meanness at work. You know that was stressful and painful enough, then life decided to throw another curve at us.

My sister in law was involved in a four car pile up early Friday morning. At this time we know she has two broken legs, a broken pelvis, several broken ribs, a broken jaw, a collapsed lung, and there was some brain bleeding last night. The brain bleeds have stopped now, they assure us that there is no brain damage, and there is no apparent internal injuries. We don't know what kind of treatment or rehabilitation she will be looking at yet. We do know that she will have to have reconstructive surgery on her pelvis, but we don't know when.

She is of course extremely medicated, she really hasn't woken up to tell us anything, what little she is awake she just says things like "where" "who" she did make us all smile when she said "holy shit" but she's still very confused, dazed and out of it. At this time Lynn continues to be in St. John's hospital in Detroit, she is in ICU and that means no gifts or vistors outside of immediate family for now.

Some of my friends that read this blog just for the crafty stuff may get tired of my family ramblings over the next little while, and for that I will apologize in advance, however this may become, for my family readers, a way to express updates if needed.

If you're the praying kind, keep sending them up to man upstairs we all apprepriate it!
