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

Prayers still needed

Verdict still not in. Sore did look better according to Acell guy and nurse practitioner. Final decision comes from Dr. but we will not know until after 3:30 when he can be reached.

Also Margaret has been complaining of a sore throat and so I took her to Urgent care where we found out she has a ear infection and possible strep. He didn't test her due to the fact that the medicine he started her on would work for both.

Please keep the prayers coming. They are needed.

If it isn't one thing, it's another! (That's a saying my sweet mother used to use all the time!) But it does seem that way sometimes, doesn't it? We pray for healing - in all ways, for sweet Margaret!!
