Default Not a good day... UPDATE - today was a good day!

This isn't bow hunting related, but this is where I spend all my time on here, and it's where my friends are. Today my wife was birthday shopping for my daughter's birthday tomorrow. She drove out of the mall in her Focus and was broadsided by a jeep. Thank god the impact was on the passenger side. It totalled the car. She was hit so hard that it blew ALL of the glass out and now the two bucket seats arepressed againsteach other. The driver of the Jeep is fine, but Beth is in the hospital. She's bruised pretty badly and has a lot of small cuts from flying glass, but the problem is internal injuries caused by being thrown so violently into theseat belt on her right side. Still, if she hadn't been wearing it..... I don't even want to think about it.

They're not going to operate until tomorrow morning. After they finally got her into her room, I made sure she was resting and came home to make sure the kids were okay (no family in the area), get a shower and get something to eat. I'm about to head back. Just thought I'd drop a quick line. We could use some positive thoughts right now.
