    Default My Nephew

    Early Friday morning my nephew fell asleep at the wheel while driving home from work (3rd shift). He hit a tree doing 60mph. He has several facial fractures, and lacerations, bruised lung, and almost severed his ear. Plastic surgeon reattached his ear and sutured his facial lacs. They look really good. He is home now and on the mend. They are going to wait til the swelling goes down before they determine whether he will need surgery to repair any of the facial fractures. The car was totaled. Thank God his injuries were no worse than they were, and he was wearing his seat belt. He is upset, as am I, that the car is totaled. It was my mom's car that she had left to him. And he had been taking such great care of it. But he is ok and that is the most important thing. He is in a lot of pain in his face, and various other parts of his body. But he is a healthy young man, and will be fine.

    Someone upstairs was watching out for him for sure. I'm glad he's ok but I'm still gonna say a prayer for him.

    What a relief he survived it. Poor guy! I hope he mends quickly. It's a shame about the car but he is so incredibly lucky he's alive! What a blessing your nephew is still here.

    Oh, I'm so glad that he survived that terrible crash. His guardian angel was working overtime that morning. Prayers for him for a speedy and full recovery.

    Prayers for healing going up! As a medic, I have to say, he is meant to do something here cause that kind of accident doesn't have this outcome often. He has been blessed. Hugs, Jan L.

    Prayers added for a quick recovery. That 3rd shift is a difficult one to work...messes with your own body's clock.

    Thank heavens he's going to be ok! This could have been much worse. Someone was definitely watching over him.
