Our Poor Girl!

  

Our poor, sweet girl Alex, was involved in a nasty accident today! A woman jumped a red robot (traffic light) and hit her while she was crossing an intersection on her motor-bike! She has broken her ankle in two places and is undergoing surgery as we speak. Please pray for healing and peace of mind.  It must be every parents nightmare - to receive a call - "Your daughter has been in an accident!" 

She will be alright, thank God. It could have been worse!  Being so far away has made it worse. P off to Durban to be with her tomorrow!

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, dear. That is always something I dread in my parenthood. No matter how old or independent our kids are, we suffer when they're injured. Mentally. Keeping you all in my thoughts. Hope dear Alex mends 100%

My heart dropped when I read the news. I am so glad it wasn't anything more serious, but still...

Praying for Alex!

So, thankful it isn't worse...I know you are feeling so bereft not to be at her side...
We got a call like that once...luckily ours was not a bad accident either.

Oh no. I ride a scooter myself most days and they way some people drive is scary. I hope she gets better soon.

I also hope she's gonna claims from the road accident fund AND nail the woman as well. .
