While I was complaining on UJ this morning about my daughter bringing home a kitten, a truck pulled out in front of my son and her and they T-boned it. That cat seems kind of trivial now as I sit beside her hospital bed. She is far worse off than he, but under the circumstances the news has been as good as it could be. Her legs are a mess. Tibia and fibula broken on both, getting surgery on those in the morning. Compound fractures of her ankles, now set. Possible damage to small bones of both feet. Fractured L3 lumbar in back, but thankfully no apparent nerve damage, waiting on an MRI. Two broken ribs and bruised stomach. The doc said it will be a long, difficult recovery but she should recover fully. She's drifting off from the pain Meds now as my wife goes home for clothes for us. She just graduated high school Sunday. My son has a broken pelvis in a non weight bearing area, no surgery required, and a partially collapsed lung. Plus his hands are cut up. Keep us in your prayers and thoughts. 

 

I havent heard about the driver of the truck. He was taken away in an ambulance but they said he appeared OK. Think of him too.
