I wasn't sure how to label this, then 'cry for help' seemed to fit, as in the form of a request for prayers and well wishes. Today SO and I visited brother and sis-in-law at their daughter's hospital bedside. She had a serious car accident on her way home to Oxford. Care-flight brought her to Dayton and her parents drove down from Akron.
don't even know yet what caused her to drive off the road. The rescue
team spent nearly an hour cutting her out of the vehicle.
That said, her injuries could be much, much worse. It was still horrible seeing her sedated yet intermittently scared and in some pain. I can only try to be there for her parents much as possible and pray
she recovers well as caregivers expect. Feeling her squeeze my hand brought a torrent of tears.
This bright young woman was set to graduate from college next month and had
an exciting fall language teaching internship lined up. Her mom, desperate for
some positive focus, contacted professors and all are more than happy to work
with her through the recovery. That comforted me to no small degree considering all her hard work.
Isn't that nice of her present and future associated professors?
