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!

Urgent Prayers Needed

Urgent Prayers needed!!!!

Good evening. This afternoon we took Margaret to the Dr. for a check up on her sore. All I can say was the look on the Dr.'s face said it all. He took off the bandage and had the look and his assistant said "Is that the Rods?" and the Dr said yes. So long story short the pressure sore has opened up to the point you can see the rods. NOT GOOD!!!! So basically today they put some A Cell on it which is Pig Bladder hoping it will help regenerate the skin. We go back on Thursday if it has improved they will put more on it if it hasn't she will be in surgery on Friday.

This is very scary for all of us so please pray hard for this to work. We are all very worried about his. Thanks and I will post more tomorrow.

Good Morning. We are sending you all our thoughts and prayers. Give Miss. Margaret our hugs as well. When I was 10 i had rods placed around my spine and I never had anything like a bed sore but my rods got infected due to how the local hospital done a 18 spinal taps and got them infected. Well they left my back opened to heal from inside out, what ever u do please remind the doctor/nurse not to use the packing that has the elastic in the gauze that will make things worse. How ever we are here if you guys need us. Thoughts n prayers for u guys. Kirkpatricks
