Better than Expected

Thanks to everyone for the support regarding my mom. She called me this afternoon, heavily drugged and, therefore, pain--free. I read her the posting I put up yesterday & she said to thank everyone and, "I can feel the prayers."

Except for really intense pain when she moves, she's doing a lot better than expected. Healing & physical therapy will take time, but she's optimistic and says I should stay in England. Mom told me that her spinal cord seems fine & so if nothing impedes her recovery, she should be able to drive in 6 to 8 weeks. The vertebrae that was believed to be shattered is fractured in several spots, but not pulverized. When she called, she wasn't wearing a back-brace.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know. Thanks so much all of your concern & your prayers. Heavenly Father is listening.
