Update on my the friend I asked you all to pray for
Wednesday, September 15, 2010
Well I've finally found out what really happened to my friend who I thought had been hit by a couple of cars. She got hit (and dragged) by a semi truck! Her husband was almost hit, too, but he was "lucky" enough that all that happened to him was having to watch his wife get almost killed by a big rig.
Holy cow! Maria is so lucky and so blessed to be alive today. I talked to her a week or two ago and she sounded great. She's in a wheelchair and she's a little bit frustrated about the fact that she can't do much of anything, but she's very happy to be alive. She still needs one more skin graft and a surgery to fuse the bones in her ankle, and then lots and lots of physical therapy.
We've been collecting some things for her at work. There's a basket with food (and Metamucil....if you knew Maria, you'd understand just how appropriate that is) and a basket with bath related things and fun stuff. I'm going to go take them to her after work on Monday. I volunteered to be the one to take the stuff to her because I really need to see her with my own eyes so that I can prove to myself that she's really going to be okay. I know that she wil, but I still need to see her for myself.
