Cara ~ Glad to see Frank is improving quickly. Hope he's out of the coma and back into your home to recover really soon. I'll keep up the good thoughts and prayers.

Rocket ~ Yikes! That's a shame about the new car. Hopefully your insurance company does you right.

Katie ~ Good luck with Knee Surgery 2.0. Hope you're up and dancing again really soon! You're so lucky to have a guy like Glenn to dote on you during recovery. And...behave yourself.

He was put into induced coma, has a comminuted femoral neck fracture, which was operated the same night. He also has a broken pelvis, which needs surgical treatment within the next days, broken rips and a broken sternum. Due to this his lung is also damaged.
All that happened 400km away from Hannover. I will travel to Regensburg today. Even if I can't do anything there, it's better than sitting here and worrying.
Cara, so sorry to hear about your husband. Sending some your way to watch over you, hubby, and family. Please keep us updated.

OMGoodness, so glad no one was hurt. My mom and I were at the post office the first of last month, and when we came out someone had backed into the back drivers corner of the car and cracked the fender. But they didn't leave a name or anything, and nothing major was broken so we're just dealing with it.

He is in the OP right now to get the pelvis fixed. His condition was so good, they decided to do it now and not by the end of the week.
After That they will lower the meds, so he has the Chance to wake up.
I know the induced coma was good for him, but he already fought against it, stubborn as he is ;-)
Right now I Hope everything goes well and I will be able to See him later!
Cara I just read about Frank's accident. I am glad he is doing better and that you are with him now. Thoughts and prayers going up for both of you.

So sorry all this stuff has been going on.

We're sitting out on our balcony overlooking the Carribbean Sea, watching the palm trees sway in the breeze. A couple of accoustic guitarists are playing outside of a restaurant down below. We've been up for over 24 hours, between driving, hotel, and flight delays, and are totally exhausted, but now we're in Paradise. Life is good!
