Subject: BS: Grateful Mom and Sis are alive
From: Janie
Date: 21 May 11 - 12:17 AM

Mom and Annie, who some of you know from Getaways, were in a serious auto accident this afternoon. Both are in hospital with broken bones, and Annie probably has a whopping concussion and facial lacerations, but no internal injuries and no bleeding on the brain.

Apparently a driver of a pick-up truck was driving very fast, lost control and crossed the median of a 4 lane highway, hitting Annie's SUV. He died.

I am still shaking. Need to focus on being grateful. It is amazing they do not have more serious injuries, much less that they are alive.   My Dad just died.

Too close to losing my entire family of origin in a short period for comfort.

Just had to say it. Hope typing this lets me go to bed cuz I need to head home to WV very early tomorrow. Wasn't even there, but when I close my eyes, trucks are flying through the air at the people I love.

Goodnight

Deep breaths and rest, as maeve says, Janie. They are being well taken care of, I am sure and will be glad to see you when you get there. Plus, you will feel a whole lot better when you clap eyes on them, both. I *see* lots of Love and a protective Light surrounding them and you. And lots of {{{{HUGS}}}} for you, too.

Yikes, Janie. What everyone else- including you - said- I hope when you see them that gratitude and hope will drive out the nasties in your imagination. If anyone can cope, it is you.

Joining everyone in sending 'surround light'.

(You and Annie are two of my favorite inspirations.)

Janie-

I don't expect you got much sleep last night. I do hope today goes better and that your mother and sister fully recover.

Are there more friends and relatives nearby to help? There's probably all sorts of things that need to be tended at your mother and sister's home or homes.

I know these feelings all too well, beloved friend. I am so grateful for all the love, prayers, and concern sent to me by you and others here, because I now can send some of that loving store your way. That moment when you hear the news is intense and frightening. As I have been admonished by others, I now pass on to you. Be there for them, keep placing one foot in front of the other, and you will make it through although at times it will not feel so. Spend time in reflection on the fragility of life and what you nearly lost. It will be a new color on the palette of you. And most of all, as you are taking care of them, find time to take care of yourself. That is the ultimate act of giving as it gives you the best chance of being there for others.

And remember ...... I and many others here love you and are sending our blessings in all the ways that we all use to do that. For me, that is prayer.

When she is able, give my Annie a hug from Big Mick, and have her give you one too.

All the best,

Mick

Oh my! I just found this thread - Janie, this is not the kind of adrenalin one wants in one's life. Flying pickups are the things of nightmares. I hope you were able to sleep, and when you make that drive, pause for a couple of naps.

My best to your mother and sister, and to you. This has been one of those years that we all seem to experience at some point, it's hell to get through, but you eventually will. Take baby steps until you get past all of this turmoil. Here's a big fellow gardener's hug headed your way!

Thank you friends.

Things are slowly getting sorted out. Mom has broken ribs and a broken arm. She will probably be discharged from the hospital today or tomorrow, and one of the angels that helped with Daddy is going to help out once she is home.

Annie's injuries are more serious and she will be in the acute care hospital for several more days. Not sure at this point if she will be discharged to home (Mom's) or to a rehab hospital. She will not be able to put any weight on her pelvis or legs for 4-6 weeks. Fortunately she has many good friends in Maryland who have stepped in to take care of her animals, house and mail for the next couple of months, until she is able to return to her own home.

Judging from the obituary, the young man who died was well-beloved by his family. We do not yet know that drugs or alcohol were involved. Mom said the truck made no attempt to slow or correct and had wondered if something had happened to the driver - seizure, heart attack or something of that nature. His obituary said his grandfather had died in the very early morning hours of that same day. Maybe he had been up all night and fell asleep at the wheel.

Thanks for your support and your continued thoughts and prayers of concern for my family.

Janie
