I once had three sisters. One died in 1995. Sis and I are closest in age and have always been close in every other way. My oldest sister has more or less always resented the "baby" of the family, and she and I rarely have any interactions. So yeah, its rare for me to talk about anyone other than Sharon.
She is doing well. They repaired fractures to the cervical vertebrae 5 & 6 and that went extremely well. My niece is most likely completely overwhelmed.....she has 3 children, a husband out of town, and is much closer to the hospital than is her younger brother. My nephew, who doesn't know his crazy old aunty well at all (I never lived in the same state when he was a child) forgot to call me post op!!!! God bless my nieces friend who is staying with her girls for telling me everything that she knew. By the time I called her, I was getting pretty frantic!
I found the story in the local paper there online. Seems that my brother in law missed a stop light, hit a van, both vehicles rolled and people in both had to be "extracted" by the fire dept. The highway they were are is one of those more or less rural divided ones, so luckily their speed wasn't as high as had they been on the interstate. I'll tell ya, being the one almost 1000 miles away is sheer hades!
Fingers crossed that the ultrasound was clear!
Ginger, yes, I can talk a bit, but I sound kind of like an old wrought iron gate with VERY rusty hinges! It gets a tiny bit better every day, so hopefully in a couple more weeks I'll no longer sound so wierd! Is there any word yet on your SIL? Sending up lots of prayers for her.
LOL at baddog in another thread looking for help for a newbie. Guess I'll have to break down and find a place for a laptop on the first floor so I don't have to constantly run upstairs to post. Or.......they could just fix whatever is wrong so that we can posts from our phones......
