What A Week!!

Just a quick so you know some of you have heard that my Dad (this is Angie) was in an accident that involved serious head injury! Any way he is doing well the have put in a drain on his brain and it has held his brain pressures at a great pace! He is in ICU and at this point they don't have a plan as to how long! He is doing great in the respect that for critical patient you can say he is stable! I haven't had much sleep so if this is random I am sorry! He has injuries to the head broken C2 vertbre and a broken right temperal bone Sorry for the spelling no sleep and medical terms don't mix. He looks great and is doing great they are starting to take him out of the coma that they put him in and are feeding him trough a tube! It is a wait and see at this point. I will try to keep you posted as I know more! Thanks for all the calls and care and prayers We feel totally loved by our family, friends and also the Lord! I was reading a blog of some friend from dental School and her quote of the day totally hit home! So i am stealling it from her Thanks Tonya!

I found a beautiful quote from Elder Neil A. Maxwell that gave me peace:

“When in situations of stress we wonder if there is any more in us to give, we can be comforted to know that God, who knows our capacity perfectly, placed us here to succeed. No one was foreordained to fail or to be wicked. When we have been weighed and found wanting, let us remember that we were measured before and we were found equal to our tasks; and, therefore, let us continue, but with a more determined discipleship. When we feel overwhelmed, let us recall the assurance that God will not overprogram us; he will not press upon us more than we can bear."

I will try to keep in touch as I know more!
Love Angie
PS. All of my kids went to school for a while today! So I was supposed to be home alone and get stuff done but took my neice and nephew instead someday? But it was a great supprise for Hunter who wasn't sure about school in the first place! Pictures to come
