Survival



My Aunt Charlotte (my Dad's oldest sister) was in a pretty bad rollover car accident yesterday morning. She was driving back to California after a visit to MN for her Granddaughter's & nephew's (my first-cousin-once-removed & my cousin) graduation & to spend time wiht family. On the way home, near Sioux Falls, SD she fell asleep at the wheel, over-corrected & then rolled.

Very very lucky she survived.

She has numerous injuries, including- broken ankles, leg(s?), broken ribs, broken collar bone, dislocated shoulder, numerous lacerations, skin on one hand nearly gone....more, but I just don't know quite what.

It could be worse, there have been no signs of brain injury, but holy cow, this will take a while to recover from.

Please send your prayers her way. Thanks

So very sorry to know about the accident with so many injuries but seems there should be a full recovery even if it will take time. Will be praying for her and the family. I use to have to take caffine tablets when I drove on long commutes in the afternoon to keep from going to sleep. Dangerous especially when you are alone.

Wow! That smashed car looks terrible! I'm continuing to pray for your Aunt Charlotte. She has a long recovery ahead of her.
