And the wall came tumbling down

Nobody like bad news, but I think I have to tell.
Start with good news. Coming back from Synergy, I received several emails from Magazine Editor who interested in my works and want an article as well as a book.
Then the parent's worst nightmare began. My daughter got a car accident. A (apparently) drunk driver had hit her car head on. With severe brain injury, fracture skull, broken ankle, she is fighting for her life at Critical care unit at the hospital. She is still in coma and I am fighting to be strong.
Sorry about the bad news. Please remember me, I'll be back when I can get my life together.
Hugs
Ponsawan

I'm so sorry for what happened. I read about Ada going to Paris and then coming back; I remember your fear of her moving to France forever, and the love you have for her. I can't stop thinking that fortunately, you're home, because if it happened when you were at Sinergy, you would be so anxious about going home as fast as possible, that your nerves might collapse.
I can only hope that she will recover. Be strong, we can say nothing else to ease your pain, this is the worst feeling a mother can suffer. Hugs. Be strong.

So sorry to hear about your daughter. My son was in a bad accident with severe head trama and was in NICU for over 3 weeks. The dr. did not give him much of a chance to survive. He was out of the hospital in 30 days with the dr. saying a higher power gave him back to us. He is doing great now. I will pray for your daughter. Prayer does amazing things. I know it is hard, but please keep up the prayers and hopes. Miracles do happen!

kimequa said...

Still praying from Houston.

I had two dreams on the plane that Ada woke up. In the second dream, she was craving pizza! Haha-I think it's because I kept joking that she was only cranky at 3am because she was hungry. ;) At any rate, it was nice to have such positive dreams!

It was so nice to meet you and your family. Keep your heads up and stay positive! Ada is a strong girl and she's got TONS of prayer, meditation, and positive energy on her side too!!
