My Sister

Last Friday I got a call from my mom that my sister had been in a bad car accident in Chicago! She was in a cab on her way home from the airport. We didn't know all the details, but the doctor's were concerned because there was bleeding in her brain. My mom immediately left for Chicago and I took the first flight out on Saturday morning.
My sweet sister had a concussion, a deep cut in her head that they stapled, and her body was bruised. This is very traumatic and hard on her and all of us.
She is doing better, but the recovery will take awhile. They have a lot of things to sort out with insurance, the police, court dates, work, and missing their summer vacation.
It was so good for me to be by her side. I love my sister with all of my heart!
Thanks for your prayers and support! The Lord has been so gracious and it amazes me how He uses people to come alongside us. He is good!

I am so sorry to hear about your sister Lara. I am very glad she is doing okay and better. What a scary ordeal. I'm glad you were able to be there with her and your family. We will keep your family and your sister in our prayers.
