Some of you know that I left about 5:00 AM to start one of my monument pools for two doctors 128 miles into the wilds of East Texas. I left my truck at the office and rode with the owner of the company (Burn his $4.00 a gallon gas).
We were about a hundred miles down the road when I get a call from Sylvia that she's had a wreck, nobody hurt...just that her Honda will need a nose job. Not much I could do from where I was so I called the office and had one of the guys go pick her up and give her my truck to drive until I got in touch with the insurance company regarding a rent-a-ride. 30 minutes later the other call came in from Cayce's wife, Donna, wanting to know what room Rene and Sylvia were in at the hospital. HUH!!!

I got Syl on the cell and she told me to stay and get the pool started...there was nothing that I could do there. She assured me that Rene was busted up pretty good, but the doctors said that nothing was life threating. So I stayed.

Arriving at the hospital tonight my 50 year old baby girl was as Syl said...busted up pretty good! She had just been put back in ICU after her surgery...she was sleeping and the nurse assured us that she would be out for the night.
Dispite my pleas, Momma Syl elected to stay with her for the second night in a row.

It's 12:30 in the morning here in Texas...my upstairs bedroom is a sauna (we turn it off during the day). Need to sleep. Sister Sue G has been doing a super job keeping you informed.
We appreciate your prayers and kind thoughts. Phones don't work in ICU, so we sneak out and call Susie. She can post any progress.

SueanN Zerre just arrived from Austin to help Syl stand watch...a wonderful friend.
