To all of you who have been visiting my blog and leaving such beautiful comments and saying prayers for my Dad ...the Good news is ..he had his surgery ..did very well ..the Dr. was able to save the artery and open it wide ..and we are pretty much out of the woods for a stroke...Praise God !!! He's home and looking Great ..if it wasn't for the big bandage on his neck ..you wouldn't know he went through surgery ..this is the best he has ever looked after a surgery and I know it's because so many of you were praying for him. God Heard and he answered and all Praise be to him !!!
As for my More prayers Please Title ..Yesterday we brought Dad home ..My Sis and her husband came over to see him ..and about 2 hours later we were called that my sis was in a very bad car accident ..and going to the ER. She was on a very crowded off ramp nearby ..that I hate to get on because people drive absolutely crazy at this off ramp and cut in and cause accidents all the time. I have said for years they need to put cones up on the long stretch so people cannot cut in ..How many lives will be changed until something is done. Unfortunately my sis was one of those caught in the middle. From what we can gather ..a lady must have tried cutting in behind her ..at full speed and was not able to stop and plowed into the back of her throwing her car into the one in front. The picture of her car are unbelievable ..it is totalled ..the trunk is in the back seat literally ..We are Thanking God the kids were not with her or they would have been dead. Her air bags did not deploy and she was thrown into the steering wheel. Her face is so swollen, black and blue and she has fractured the bone that holds your teeth and nose in place. As well she is battered and bruised and so sore. It is without a doubt an absolute miracle she is alive. I told her the angels were surrounding her and saved her. She will have to see a maxiofacial surgeon this week. To determine if surgery will be needed. And of course we are very concerned as each hour passes that nothing else will happen. So once again we call on all our dear friends for prayer. Healing prayer and to Guide us to a Dr. that is very capable and skilled and can help her.
Thank You again for all your sweet and lovely comments ..I look forward to posting some lighter side posts and sharing more pictures of our show and of course getting the Free Giveaway winner picked ..
Please remember Life is about choices...in all we do. When we are driving a car ..we tend not to see it as a deadly weapon and poor choices behind the wheel ..when we are tired ..in a hurry..talking on a cell phone ..etc...all these things though small in our minds can truly be the undoing of our own lives ..but more importantly that of others. Although this person did not intentionally hit my sis ..a poor choice led to an accident that could have otherwise been avoided. Remember consider others when you make choices ..your choices affect everyone.
Hugs and Blessings ...Sara
