Another Update on John's Mom and Sister

The last post was an update on John's mom and sister but apparently I understated their injuries some. The accident was fairly severe - John's mom Lorna blacked out for the accident and had to be removed by paramedics. She had a concussion and so felt fairly sick today, as well as being fairly bruised up. John's sister, Jen, was driving and got a deep gash in her foot that went down to the bone. Apparently that gash was from the brake or gas pedal. Jen's new (4 month old) car is now likely totaled. They weren't sure what the condition of the other driver was.

The recovery for Lorna and Jen will likely be about 4-6 weeks, which means that they won't be able to be as helpful to Jess and John while Katelyn remains in the hospital. Lorna and Jen have been very helpful, watching their son Johnny, cleaning the house, and making meals. Pray for a speedy recovery.

Lastly, Katelyn's spinal tap is scheduled for tomorrow. Pray that it will occur and that Katelyn's protein levels will have lowered enough that the surgeons can perform the shunt surgery within the week.
