(5 miles)

Whew. Lives can change with the speed of only one phone call. Around 5:00 yesterday evening we received a call letting us know that our daughter, Brandy, had been in a car accident and was in the emergency room in Minden. Yet, again, she proves that miracles happen and some folks are granted 9 lives. She is down several of those, definitely one was added to the "used" column after this incident. The doctor kept running tests, an MRI, CAT scans, X-Rays, etc. She had seen a photo of the car and just simply could not believe that anyone could have survived the impact let alone have survived it without major problems. The car Brandy was driving was rear-ended by a truck to the extent that the rear of her car was forced into the front of the car with part of it wrapping around the driver's side of the vehicle. She had on a seat belt and was still thrown into the passenger side of the car, tennis shoes torn off her feet. She was knocked out for several minutes and came to only to see the driver of the other car lighting up a cigarette. She screamed at him to put the cigarette out because there could be gas fumes. It seems pretty obvious that this guy was not running on all cylinders! She is lucky, we are lucky. Brandy received only soreness and bruises. More evidence, Miracles do happen. Whew.......
