I just learned today that my birthmother, Mary, and her 91 year old “boyfriend” of over 25 years, were in a serious car accident yesterday. She was bringing him home from a doctor’s appointment, when a car broadsided her driver’s side door. VERY thankfully, they are both alive and neither of them suffered internal organ injuries. However, she has a broken pelvis and leg that will require surgery, and he has some fractures as well.
My aunt Cinde called me with the news and is trying to organize and figure out how to manage things going forward. Jack lives 3 hours from my birthmother and Cinde’s home, and they were down at his residence and are hospitalized in that area. Mary is a primary care giver for Jack, so this is going to be a long road of recovery with many obstacles and complicated parts.
And of course I sit here feeling very concerned and helpless. 😦
Prayers of healing for Mary and Jack and wisdom and strength for Cinde as she navigates the challenging weeks ahead are very much appreciated.
