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!

Margaret's Therapy Garden

We are working on Margaret's therapy garden.   We are still trying raise the money to finish it. We have had the concrete funded and some donated. The tires were donated. And the swing is being funded. So we are still trying to raise the money to purchase the fountain, park bench, the fence to go around retaining wall so she won't accidentally go off the side. All the landscaping, lighting so that is lit up and some sort of lighting to go along the side walk ...so she can go out in the evening. We would love to have your support. If you can't do anything that is totally fine. Would you consider sharing the post and link. You can either donate through her go fund me page http://www.gofundme.com/htevrs or you can mail a check to the Margaret Romph Benefit fund at PO box 105762. Jefferson City MO 65110. Thank you again with helping with this project to give Margaret an area she can go to and call her own. Until now she has had no place to go around our house except the street which we don't encourage.

I shared the link on Twitter once, but I'm glad you posted this because I had meant to post it again but I didn't get back to it. Will share it again right now.
