    I need to let everyone know that I will be away from the board for awhile, not sure how long. If you have any problems please send them to Narcissus or Maximum71. My young beautiful neices ages 19 and 14 were in an auto accident this afternoon, broadsided by an 18 wheeler. My oldest neice died on the scene and the youngest is in critical care with a crushed pelvis, a collapsed lung, a broken jaw, brain swelling and at this point only God knows what else. She is in a COMA and they have advised us her chances are slim but if she does pull through it will be weeks before she regains conscienceness. These girls were and are still like my own daughters. To add to the day I had to break the news to my wife, then my dad, then my mother, then my brother...... I have given hurting information to everyone that I care about and I think that it has taken its toll on me. These girls are the only daughters to my sister and her husband, what a tragedy to lose a child and possibly both in the same day.. I cannot fathom the loss as a parent. Guys grab your kids and have no regrets if something was to take them away from you. Live life to the fullest and enjoy and cherish your family. Say an extra prayer for my neice would ya?

    See you all

    A glimmer of hope! Well guys this week has really sucked, my youngest neice is still in a COMA and she is in a lot of pain. They put a "bolt" in her skull that senses her intra cranial pressure. Today at noon was day 3 at that was suppossed to be the worst for brain swelling. The neurologist cam in about 10 pm tonight and told us that it is official that she did not suffer any further injury to her brain after the wreck. We still dont know if she will ever regain conscienceness and if she does what kind of brain she will have. Her Pelvis and jaw are broken and they have to do surgery before 14 days.... Today we learned that her brain can still communicate with her fingers and toes so no paralysis so far. Guys there are literally thousands of people praying for her all over Oklahoma. If you guys don't mind please help lift her up and say a prayer for her and her parents. These two girls were extroidinarily good christian girls that loved children and wanted good things out of life. I will let you know if anything else comes about..


    Thanks all

    Captain
