A LITTLE HELP FOR MY FRIEND

I have not been blogging much lately, and that's because a very dear friend of mine who is more like a sister to me recently had a terrible accident a couple weeks ago.  Brenda was coming home from grocery shopping and going up the stairs from her garage into their town home.  We don't know what happened but she fell backwards off the steps onto the concrete floor and fractured her skull. She had multiple spider fractures and massive bleeding in her brain and has been in a coma.  She very recently came out of the coma, but is only semi back.  She has a long road of recovery ahead of her.  Each day we hear of a little more progress.  She doesn't recognize people yet, but she is beginning to say a few words now and then.  She just had her feeding tube removed and hopefully will be able to eat again on her own.  There is a very long road of therapy and rehabilitation needed for her and the financial burden is tremendous, so I started a fundraiser.  I hope nobody will get offended at my posting the link to that here, but I want to give every opportunity I can for people to help this dear couple.  I'm just bringing it to the attention of everyone I know, because I love my friend and I miss her greatly and pray daily that we'll have her back again to her normal self one day.  I would want someone to do the same for me.

I've set up a site where people can donate http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/brenda-jean/115358  I'll be placing a widget with a link to the site on my sidebar as well.

All donations go directly into their paypal account.  I'm doing all I can to get the word out!  I want my friend back!

God bless! None of us knows what tomorrow brings.  Be thankful for friends and family while you have them and show them you love them!  If all this makes you do is be thankful for them and give them a huge hug today, then that too is a good thing.

    1. The fundraiser just ended, and I really am so very thankful for all who helped and gave and prayed. She is making small progress, but still unable to remember much. We don't know yet how much of her memory will come back to her. We're continuing to pray and hope for the best!
