Phone Calls

Sunday morning. Before noon. The phone rings. Uh, oh, NOT good. I let K answer. His nephew, the father of The Nephew who is staying with us, was in an ATV accident. He was airlifted to a hospital in Duluth. From what little we know, he has multiple broken bones--not sure about what else is wrong. He is in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery, but it will be long in coming. K's sister--the mother of the injured one--will probably have to put off her yearly winter get-away-from-the-snow vacation this year to take care of him. I ALWAYS hate early on the day phone calls--they NEVER are good news.

And I think what REALLY sets us off with accidents like this is the fact that my husband's identical twin brother died as the result of a motorcycle accident when he was 21. Scary memories.

They were called murdercyles in my house growing up. We lost a relative, too.

So sorry...good to hear a full recovery is expected!
