minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day

It had been 16,320 minute, 272 hour, or 11 and a half day since my daughter accident, still, she is in coma. She is showing sign of reflect action; moving her arms and legs when gets pinch, open her eyes half way, twisting her body. She's still unconscious, but hopefully the doctor can wean out the drugs and she can regain consciousness by her own, we hope. No promising what so ever.
I stopped crying after 7 days, no more tear to cry. Fighting my way into the crowded visitor room, gather some couch, chairs and table. I sleep there during the night so I can catch the doctor in the morning then go home. I can see her anytime I want. Many of her friends and my friends had stopped by all day. Many had dropped off dinner. I had my moment but the anger had subsided but the fear of the unknown had set in. What if, what if, what if.
Let's pause our lives for a minute, give your love one a hug, tell them you love them, because you will not know what will happen in the next minute. next hour, or next day. Group hug everyone.
Thanks for all the kind words, pray and encouragement.

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.
