Not a great start to the Year....

{**Warning: graphic photos...not for the weak of heart}

Last week on the Monday after Christmas Break, my Father N Law's world came crashing down as HE came crashing down off a ladder. He, who my kids refer to as Grandpa Ron, shattered his heel and will face a LONG Recovery complete with surgeries, pain and a lot of sitting down. Because the bones shattered into many pieces he is experiencing painful "fracture blisters."


.....Post Edit......
Little did I know that when taking the photos of Ron he already had a major infection in his leg that would bring him close to amputation. The day after this picture was taken he had emergency surgery....more of that story later.



Then about an hour after he was released from the Hospital...my Sister N Laws family was brought by ambulance to the same Hospital. They were hit by a lady that was most likely texting. Poor little Ava needed stitches and got beat up pretty bad on her eye. Emmie & a friend were okay, while the baby Elsie had a minor owie. Tiffany & Jason got whiplash, bruising & teeth chipped but we are just glad everyone is okay.

Awful! Texting while driving is really eating at me. It needs to be outlawed!!! It's driving while impaired ... same as drinking & driving!

Oh my goodness! How sad! Both stories. That picture of Ava just breaks my heart! Little kids shouldn't have to go through things like that. All because of someone not paying attention.
