We got home a week ago from our Christmas Trip to TX (Sunday around 5PM Central). Monday was an exhausting day of unpacking, cleaning, inventorying, restocking, and laundry. Managed to get the RV cleaned washed and put away for the winter. Monday night we had guests over and I got a phone call about 6:30. My oldest daughter had been in a car accident with my 3 1/2 year old grandson 8:25 AM that morning.

My middle daughter called me to inform me, she had been taking care of things all day long, and just didn't get a chance to call until than. Toni was in the hospital in St. Cloud. Conor was air lifted to Childrens Minnesota Hospital. So its been a very rough week!!

The good news is Toni was released Thursday and was able to go to Childrens to be with her son who was 85 miles away. More good news last night, Conor is doing well and we are hoping he will be going home soon. He was on the side of the truck that was t-boned, but in the back seat. Which was a blessing. If he had been in the front seat I don't think he would have survived. The truck is totaled! And the passenger side is pushed in enough to break loose the passenger side seat and shove the center counsel into my daughters leg and leave a nasty bruise.

After a long week, Conor has come a long way after surgery and being in the PICU for the week. He is behaving pretty much like his old self.

Great news!!! Conor is now out of the PICU and on to the first floor. He had solid foods last night, and went for a walk with his mom and dad. As his dad put it "Conor escaped from his bed several times during the day."
All sure signs he is ready to go home!!

So sorry to read of their accident and injuries. Will tuck them into my prayers for awhile and please let us know their progress.

Thanking God for looking after them. Guardian Angels had to be on duty. Know how stressful this had to have been. Will keep you all in my prayers/Lillian

I have 2 praises, 1 that your daughter and grandson will be OK and also that you were home in time to see them. It's so scary, it seems there are so many awful car accidents in spite of all the safety measures that are built into them.

God bless you and your family. Hope Conor gets home soon

I'm so glad they are going to be ok. It is hard getting news like that.

by airyfairy 14 Jan 2018

As a parent, I think it is one of our fears. I am so pleased that your daughter and grandson are doing well.

It sounds, from the way you describe the truck, it could have been so much worse. I know it was bad and thank heaven above, they came away with their lives. Car accidents can happen so quickly and change lives forever. Wishing you and your family all the best. What kind of surgery did little Connor have? leg, head, etc.

He had bleeding on the brain on the right side. Thankfully it was not on the left which is where the language center is located.

One of the worst phone calls you could get. Thank goodness it wasn't worse. Praying for a speedy recovery. Hugs.
