Life Is A Vapour

It's still a mystery what happened during the accident. We've been at the hospital for several hours per day since Friday evening when we were told my mom had flipped her car and hit a pole--on the other side of the road. She has no recollection of it and the police report has not been seen by any of us yet. As a family, we are praising the Lord for the life of an amazing woman who was given more time with us.

When we arrived in the ER, we barely recognized our mom's face and we three sisters broke down. She broke her nose, fractured vertebrae in her neck, burst her L3 and L4 (they are now saying, possibly her ribs). She tore the inside of her arm open from elbow to knuckles and they spent hours in surgery cleaning grass, glass and dirt from it and repairing tendons and nerves. She is stitched in several places. She's in a lot of pain and I'm asking for prayer. I believe the Lord will heal completely and we're thankful there are no life-threatening injuries.

Exodus 15:26b "for I am the Lord who heals you."

Oh Heather...I am so sorry! When I saw your update on my sidebar with the title, my heart just sank! How true it is....our life is a vapour. May the LORD give complete healing to your precious Mom, and may you all know HIS hand upon each of you as you walk this path. We will be praying for you all tonight as a family.

Much love,

Thanks so much, Camille.

Your mom is an amazing woman. There is not going to be one nurse or doctor who has anything to do with her, who will not be changed and introduced to her Saviour. She is just so remarkable that way. One day, one moment, one breath at a time. We will all keep praying for every single one of you.

Much love,

Dear Heather,
I happened to come across your blog through a mutual facebook friend and read your last post. Thinking of you and your family and your Mom and praying for complete healing of all her injuries and to be free from pain.
What a beautiful family you have :)

I'm so behind on my reading... I'm breathing out thanks for how your mother's life was preserved. I can't imagine showing up at the hospital with my two sisters in this situation. How is your mom doing? Praying that God would bring quick healing.

Oh Lord Jesus, please heal Heather's mom. I pray for strength and courage and healing. Thank-you that she did not die in the accident. Thank-you for your presence there with her.

You are in my prayers Heather.
