Crustybeef

A lot of you know Elizabeth from Crustybeef. She had surgery, came home, took care of sick Ben, then had to be admitted to the hospital with colitis. Things have been hard for her. Her kids miss her terribly. Yesterday her brother Jimmy was in a terrible traffic accident and was brought to the same hospital with a brain injury. He's had surgery, and is in a drug-induced coma. Please keep Elizabeth and her brother and family in your prayers. She's been updating regularly on Facebook, so if you're her friend there, you can stay in touch that way. I've spoken to her on the phone a few times, and she's holding up, but very, very frightened. She'll be released from the hospital today, but because her brother has pneumonia and she has a virus, she won't be able to see him. Her plan is to go home and try to get some rest, then spend as much time at the hospital as possible. Her MIL is flying in tomorrow to take care of the kids and home. Whew. Prayers, friends.

I've been checking her blog, but I didn't know she was on FB--thanks for sending the shout out for prayers for her and her family. They need it so badly.

Sounds like crusty has her plate full. We never know what life will throw at us or when.

When you are on the cape this summer give me a call and we can hook-up at Panera Bread.
