    hi all,

    i am asking for prayers for my brother. he was in awreck after hitting black ice on a bridgeout in TN where he lives. he had to extracated from the car. when he hit the ice he went right down the embarkment. he shattered his ankle, broke both bones in hislower leg, fractured hiswristand ruptured a disc in his back. He had surgery yesterday on his leg, ankle and wrist. the back surgery will beeither Monday or Tuesday. Him andhis wife live with and take care of my father in law. he asked yesterday if any of his siblings were there. I feel bad and wish i could do more,butwith such short notice i would have topay full fare to fy out there. I can't abandon mykids during Christmas week. I haven't spoken toh him yet but think i will try calling him later today. Please pray and keep in your thoughts formy brother and his wife too.

    Hi Annmarie,

    I am so sorry to hear about your brother. I give you strength and offer my prayers during this difficult time.

    It's hard when families are spread out all over the states. Please don't feel bad for not being able to get there right now.Connecting by phone and letting him know your situation and how much you love him is a really great idea.

    Please let us know how he's doing,

    OMG, how horrible! I will def. add him to my prayer list. God bless, and the phone call to let him know how much you wish you were there, and able to go should be enough. It is so hard to be spread around like that. My heart really goes out to you.
