I'll have to admit, I get kind of sad on the weekends when it comes to the blogging world.. I normally wake up to a couple new posts to read, but on weekends not so much!
So I wanted to blog yesterday but couldn't fine the strength nor really the time. Yesterday was a hard day for my family, 6 years ago yesterday my brother was involved in a horrible motor cycle accident on the campus of Baylor in Waco, Texas. I am not going to go into detail of all the things we went threw but I'll just say they pronounced him dead on the scene, the paramedic said no, I finally got a needle in him to do cpr, I'm taking him to the hospital..
We were told he had a 3% chance of surviving. Yes 3!
After numerous surgeries, scares, cry's, hospitals, friends and family visiting, doctors, sleepless nights, emails, plus 6 years... Here we are today!
My brother beat that 3% like a champ! He still has several issues today and faces new challenges EVERYDAY but he's alive and we are so Thankful for that!
My friend Danielle told me yesterday (as I was having a break down and she was texting me)
I need to celebrate that he is here rather than look at yesterday as the anniversary of his accident.
So from here on out that is how I am going to look at it, yes I may still cry when I think of things of hear a song but I'll try my best to think happy thoughts!
So enough of the sadness now that I'm balling again ;)
So proud of this family! We've come so far!
I hope everyone has a Happy and Safe Halloween!!
I will be spending the day shopping with Rachael and the evening carving pumpkins and passing out candy with Megan!
Off to the pumpkin patch tomorrow!
Lots of pics to come!
