Prayers are badly needed

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Yesterday my cousin's daughter had a very bad car accident. She broke her neck and had surgery for swelling on the brain. She is in a coma and they are awaiting neurology reports to determine her brain activity. From the news yesterday the outlook looks very poor... she is 20 years old.

I have not gone to the hospital yet because I lost my son at the age of 20 and I don't want to be that reminder of what could and may very well be. My heart is aching so badly and I feel helpless.

The other part that is very tragic about this whole accident is that it happened 50 feet from where my father died in a car accident 43 years ago. The area is not dangerous except to our family.

I question why and yet I ask for prayers.

Today I also have a very close friends who's husband is having surgery for cancer of the mouth. Please pray for them too.

Dear friend, I understand why it's too hard to go to the hospital: I flashed back to my own experience, of getting that call from the ER saying my son had broken his neck and to come as soon as possible... That's not a feeling that fades away.

My heart breaks for them too ~
Take care, Elizabeth emoticon

    You are all in my prayers. It's so hard to understand why these things happen. Faith and prayer will see you through all the difficult times. My sister has pancreatic cancer and I understand about questioning why. There is a peace that comes with trusting God and accepting His will. God bless.
