Up Date

It is 11 pm and we are home now. Sharon's surgery went well and she is in ICU. She is not out of the woods yet and needs our continued prayers. They are worried that they may not be able to save the foot. Only time will tell at this point. They are expecting that she will get pneumonia because of the broken ribs and cracked sternum. She has a history of pneumonia and with broken ribs she will not be able to cough and keep her lungs clear. She seemed to be in good spirits before the surgery but they are keeping her sedated at this point. She has a very long road ahead of her. We are concerned that once she is able to process what has happened that she will be overwhelmed. There was a big party planned this Sunday for her retirement and she was leaving on a cruise in June with her husband, her son, grandson, and daughter in law. The family is disappointed but grateful that she made it through the accident. At this time we do not know if anyone else was injured in the accident or what happened but it involved other vehicles and others might have been transported to the hospital. Please pray for them as well. At this time she is unable to even remember what happened.

Again thanks for your prayers.
