I know some of you have commented asking for updates.
My daughter came through the weekend without incident. The doctors say this is good. There was swelling in her brain which has since subsided; I think that was the reason for the induced coma. She was taken off those meds but has not regained consciousness.
She’s breathing on her own but only about 70%, so she’s getting oxygen too.
Her right upper body is in a cast. Her lower body is tractioned to help the broken hip heal properly.
She was given last rites by the hospital chaplain prior to surgery, but it looks like we’re past that now. Physically she can heal, but until she regains consciousness we have no idea if our little girl will come back to us.
Other notes – our friend who was driving and her daughter both have good prognoses. They asked me to thank you for the prayers.
The driver of the other car was on his phone when he ran the light. PLEASE put the damn thing down when you’re driving. It can wait.
Finally, thanks to John for the flowers and balloons. I hope she wakes up while they are still fresh enough to enjoy. Grace, where did you find that bear!
And thanks to all of you for the prayers offered. Don’t let up.
Update when I can.
