Florida's Foreverly Shores
I spoke with my sister today, and Rachel may be moved from Intensive Care tomorrow if all continues to improve in her condition~
She has had multiple plastic surgeries, the broken arm (elbow was protruding) has been set, her leg and foot are doing nicely after the repair work, the nose has been reset, the deep head gash is responding nicely~
The pelvic fractures are the most painful, and naturally they have had her highly doped~
They began weaning her from the morphine today ... hoping they don't have to do a body cast ... the plan right now is to see how she does with reduced medication and then make the next decisions~
She has no memory of the accident and is beginning to remember other things, so progress is happening for her~
Thank you all for the kind thoughts and prayers ... POWERFUL !
It doesn't rain, but what it pours ... last night Jon (Rachel's father) and Eric, her brother, were returning to the hospital in my sister's car when they were rear-ended. Jon suffered a badly bruised back but Eric was unharmed ... THANK GOD !
Rachel's car was completely totaled in her wreck and now my sister's car is all messed up too~
Sooooo much to curse ... yet, so much to be thankful for ... and so we maintain the faith~
Again, my deepest and sincerest appreciation to each of you for caring ... genuinely caring~
Hopefully, I will return with better news as each day passes~
