My Not So Merry Christmas. Prayer Needed.

I was napping on Christmas Eve when I gotta phone call. My little sister and brother, ages 20 and 17 were in a horrible car accident. It was over the news, streets shut down. My sister was trying to brake, but her car slid and she lost control, got tboned and then slammed into another car. My little brother was ejected from the backseat. He shattered his jawbone, broke his pelvis, collarbone, sternum, and clavicle bones. His brain is swollen and he's in a coma. My sister WAS paralyzed on her left side but now she has feeling, she just can't move it. The cause is she bruised her C1 spinal cord and her C1 and C2 cords are chipped so it's nerve damage. Their friends were also in the car. One is out of surgery and the other had to be flown to another hospital for spleen rupture. My Christmas Eve and Christmas day were spent in the hospital with them. We know it's a long recovery ahead of us, but we are grateful that they are alive. I need all of your prayers. Thank you. Love you all.

    Is this the same accident near Connecticut Ave on the beltway the other night?  I am praying for your sister and brother; for the healing of their injuries and for your family.   I am very sorry this happened and I can only pray that God will restore them 100%.   

    @MrsBad - Prayers as well for the family involved you mentioned.  That is a tragedy no one especially children should have to witness or endure.  



    Love is the ultimate superpower.   
    It can make you weak and strong simultaneously.  



  • Ill keep them and you in my prayers

  • Thank you all so much. We're now waiting on my sisters MRI results to see if she needs spinal surgery. My brother is now getting fed through a feeding tube which is good because he hasn't had any food since the accident. The pressure in his brain went down and the swelling did just a tad. But we'll take any kind of improvement over none. And Island, no this was on Brandywine Road in MD. Close to Waldorf.
