So... Rob/italian_jew's mother is in the ICU; she was in a car accident yesterday (Wednesday). I'm (Beck/celtic_cherokee) her daughter-in-law, which makes us both out of commission for a few days. Voting for Challenge 20 (Retro Cartoons) will most likely go up on this coming Sunday (so you can still enter if you want to!), and Challenge 21 (Black History Month) will be open for another week. For those who'd like to know any details, please read further. Thanks for the patience guys! :)
Rob's mother, Barbara, had a seizure as she arrived to work yesterday morning. She accelerated through the parking lot of her Sears store and traveled 400 feet (at least) before she was launched into the air via the dirt/curb/mulch of a median/island and slammed hood-first into a light pole. The pole came down, her car partially on top of it. The car is totaled. She received head injuries and lacerations to her forehead. Her sternum and ribs on the left side are broken. She had a collapsed/punctured left lung. Her ankle was dislocated, originally believed to be broken. This was not the case; despite the fact that her shin bone was protruding through the skin. It's apparently extremely rare and hardly heard of, and apparently it's worse than a break. She's conscious now, and has been taken off the ventilator. She's spending her second night in the ICU tonight, and might be moved to a regular room tomorrow. Any positive thoughts would be crazy!appreciated.
Thanks again guys, and I hope to see lots and lots of icons coming in! It'll help take my mind off things here. >_>
