Accident Update

If you don't already know, Mom had an accident.  On Saturday night she took a good fall while trying to climb onto the back of her motorcycle!  She essentially crushed her left shoulder, dislocating the joint and breaking the bone below the joint.  The resulting trip to the hospital, surgery, and trauma has left her home trying to cope this week.  Currently, she's having difficulty keeping down food and pain medications.  Her body seems to be really reacting to the trauma.  I tell you this for several reasons:
She won't be back blogging for a while!
She needs your prayers.
If you think you could send her a note of encouragement, irregardless of how little she knows you, I think she could really use it.

Here's some things you could consider praying for: 1)that she would be encouraged 2)that my dad would be encouraged and maintain it as he cares for her 3)that she would heal and get back on her feet as soon as possible, 4)that they would both learn the lessons the Lord has for them in this and, 5) that many good things would result from this pain and difficulty.

If you want to send her a note, send me a brief email at peternjulie@gmail.com and I'll reply with her address.  

In the meantime, I will be posting updates on this blog, worrying about my Mom and trying to find a way to come visit/help her.  I'm so thankful for her strong faith in the Lord and the way she has received it all with grace.

Julie, I am trying to think of something I can do, like how to help with all of the stomach upset. What a horrible accident. I know she probably doesn't want visitors but what do you think I could do. I will write her a note today.

Do you need some money for a plane ticket? I could maybe help with that. I would like to. Let me know.

I am so so so sorry.
