I just found out that my friend Miranda has been in a really bad car accident.  http://darkestwoods.livejournal.com/66840.html

Long story short, she has a pretty major concussion, with very serious memory loss.  She has a one year old and a three year old, and she doesn't even remember having them.  The doctors are not sure if her memory will ever come back, they think she may have lost 3 to 5 years worth of her memories. 

I can't even imagine.  I'm crying as I write this.

Please pray for Miranda, and her children, and her parents who will be taking care of them.  They all need so much help, healing and light right now.

Oh, how terrible!!

There's not anything anyone can say to even... But that's what the Lord is for.

Keeping them - and you - in my prayers.

Oh no. I can't imagine how hard it must be on her kids (since they're too young to fully understand what's happened). Is the children's father still in the picture? Or is it just Mom and the grandparents?

I'll keep her in my prayers and, hopefully, her memory will improve over time.

One of the fathers died of an overdose, and the youngest one's father is in jail for a variety of things.

She's had amazingly bad luck in life, and made some bad decisions in the past, but she was RIGHT on the verge of getting her life in order. She was starting to see a therapist, she's off of drugs and away from all of her old crowd, and was just settling down to be a nice, boring housewife and a responsible mother. She was SO close to getting everything on track, that for this to happen right now just makes it all the more tragic.

Dang. It's stories like that that make me understand where the bitter atheists are coming from. :(

You're right. The fact that she was finally getting her life in order when this happened makes this story 1,000% more tragic. I really hope she can beat the odds because she and her children deserve a miracle.

May she recover well, fully, and quickly. Memory is a tricky thing...and will surprise the heck out of everyone, even the professionals.

Oh gosh, I'm sorry to hear that! I hope the concussion is some swelling or bleeding that will go down and not actual death of brain tissue. With physical injuries, the brain can make new connections, yet once the memory is gone, it's gone.

She, and her family, and you, will be in my thoughts and prayers.

3-5 years of memories? That happened to me once - I called it college.

But seriously, she must be firghtened and hurting right now, and I'm breathing some mojo her direction. The universe takes care of moms.

I'm sorry to hear that. I don't know what to say. I hope she gets better...

Wow. I am glad that your fried didn't lose her life, but losing her memory must be awful. I am praying for a miracle recovery. Given time, anything can happen.
