Hey everyone – if you could say a prayer for my Aunt Linda and family, it would be appreciated. My aunt was walking the family dog yesterday evening when she was hit by a car. The driver of the car was a young man who had looked away from the road to try to find something in the vehicle. He wasn’t paying attention and the car went off the road, hitting my aunt. She was transferred to the hospital in critical condition with a broken femur and tibia. She underwent surgery today and while her condition has been upgraded, it’s still a concern whenever there’s been a long bone fracture. They are currently evaluating whether or not to put her on a ventilator, depending on how much marrow was released into her bloodstream.
I know that my uncle and both of their children will be at the hospital. This is a family that has had more than it’s fair share of tragedy. About 12 years ago, my 17 year old cousin was hit by a truck while riding his bike. His leg was caught in the rear bumper, and he was dragged to death before the driver realized what had happened. It was absolutely horrible, and I’m sure that this accident has brought back all of those memories and heartache.
