Cousin Update

After bringing my Aunt Ruth back from her Maryland vacation, Cousin Debbie was on her way back to Maryland, she stopped to say hello to cousin Bob, after leaving his house she was broadsided by a small pickup truck on the driverside door.
My cousin Bob was a few minutes behind her, ran up to her car and cut the deployed driverside air bag, called 911 and helped her until the ambulance got there.
She has a few fractured bones,3 fractures in the pelvis and 2 in her leg and a few bumps and bruises.
Her car was mangled but thank God that she is alive!
When I got the call last night it took me back to August of 1985, when cousin Mary was killed in a car accident, Cousin Debbie's sister,I was in a bad way all night until I heard her voice today, Debbie's that is.
Thank you All very much for your prayers.
Thank you Lord for being with her and keeping her safe.

And as always,thanks for listening!

There was lots of prayers going up for her, it wasn't her time to go to be with God. An angel was with her.

Thanks for updating us on your cousin, John. I can only imagine the thoughts you were having until you heard how she was doing. I hope she has a full recovery from her injuries.

Thank heavens your cousin Bob was right behind her & able to help her. I hope the other driver didn't leave the scene...She'll be laid up for awhile with those injuries but at least she's alive. And what a nice thing for her to call & re-assure you this morning. Linda in Washington

I am pleased that your cousin is alive after that smash, John. It's a shame about the broken bones, but they can mend. Cars can be replaced, people cannot.
