Reaching Out

UPDATE: Vanessa came through surgery but is in very critical condition, will need eye surgery.

Last night just after 5 pm, our John's (LM's son), sweet girlfriend, Vanessa, was critically injured in a head-on car accident in Sandwich. She was a backseat passenger in a small car driven by a good friend. The driver and front seat passenger are also injured but have been treated and released from Cape Cod hospitals. They hit a pick-up truck which had pulled into their lane of travel. Vanessa was thrown in to the front seat and hit the windshield (I suspect she was not wearing a seatbelt). She was medflighted to Boston Medical Center where she remains in critical condition with head, kidney and liver damage. During the night they were doing surgery. We still await results on her condition post-surgery. We feel so sad for John in all this as he cannot leave the house due to house arrest.
All we can do is send her positive and healing energy and support John through this crisis.
Vanessa is a sweet and very strong girl and she has been such a steadying and faithful presence for John through his hard times recently. Our hearts are heavy for her and for her family. Her mother is at the hospital and updating John as she has news.
Thank you to my blog family. I know there is tremendous power in your caring.
With lots of love.....

I will certainly add her to my prayer list and continue with diligent prayers for her, and her family and to John. I'm sure he is quite upset that he can't go to her. I'm so sorry...debbie

I'll be monitoring FB and the blog for updates. I stopped by church earlier and lit a candle for Vanessa and put her and John on our prayer chain. My heart breaks for him not being able to be there for her but only in spirit. How difficult that must be for him.

Thinking of you Marcia.
