On Friday, Jan 2nd, 2009 Sherline was working at McDonalds when Erin, Margaret and Grandma Kay came to visit her. Shortly after leaving they were in a very serious car accident. Sherline saw the ambulance and fire trucks go by her work and immediately felt sick. She called Erin and no one answered. She called Kay 's phone and was told she needed to come to the scene. When she got to the scene, they would not let her see Margaret. Erin and Grandma Kay were taken to St. Mary's to be treated and were released. Margaret was life-flighted to the University. She is suffering from severe head trama, where they had to shunt her head to release pressure. Other injuries were 2 broken femurs and a broken neck. She is in the pediatric intensive care at the University. The doctors say that it is too early to give a prognosis but if she does make it through this she will probably be paralyzed from the neck down. The extent of the head trauma is unknown at this time. Please pray for a miracle for they do happen. Our faith is strong but we need the circle of prayers to embrace the family during this difficult time. Sherline, Eric, Erin, Katharine, Patrick, and Margaret need our support!

Latest Journal Update


Please say some prayer for Margaret, Katharine and Erin. All 3 girls are very sick. Katharine seems to be on the upside. Margaret and Erin not so much. Margaret's nose is running non stop. Oxygen is low and constantly setting off the alarms so we are having to keep her on oxygen. She is not eating, not wanting to get out of bed and has me worried. So we are staying in and laying around. Please pray they all get better soon. Will keep you posted. Thanks for your support.  Have a great night and God Bless.
