We found out last night that a co-worker of R's was in a bad car accident on New Year's Eve. Yep, you guessed it, they were hit by a drunk driver. Mike, R's co-worker, and his wife had just left the party they'd attended and hadn't even made it a quarter of a mile down the road when the drunken idiot crossed the center line and hit them head-on. Apparently this happened at the crest of a decent sized hill and they never saw the guy coming until it was way too late. Mike is in intensive care with some internal bleeding is reported to be doing all right so far. His wife is not doing as well, however, and they aren't sure she's going to make it. In addition to internal damage, both of her ankles totally shattered on impact. If she does make it, she's going to be facing months of treatment and recovery. They have two small children at home, ages 2 & 4.

Please pray for them/send good vibes/send good thoughts their way if you would.

*hugs* Certainly shall be prayin'. I have a friend who's gone through that whole thing, and the rehab and all that, after being hit by a drunk driver.

People like that who drink and drive so deserve to be in jail.

Thanks so much! It just breaks my heart to think of those kids asking for mommy and daddy and wondering where they are and when they will be home. They are far too young to understand what being in a bad accident means yet. *cries for them*

I totally agree--they need to lock up that idiot and throw away the key! *smacks the crap out of him*
