My 100th Post

Well, it is my 100th post and I was going to do a giveaway, but instead I am going to ask for all of you for something. I am asking that everyone keep my niece, Bridget, who attends Fort Hays College in Kansas, in your thoughts and prayers. Bridget, was in an accident today. Bridget was participating in a first aid class for a camp job she was going to have this summer. Somehow, I don't have all the details, she fell 20 feet. She has a broken pelvis and a collapsed lung. Currently they don't think she has any head injuries. My mom, Bridget's Grandma Jo, is on her way to be with her because my brother and his wife are in Chicago at another child's college graduation and they can't get a flight out until tomorrow. Bridget is one of those people who has infectious smile, she is creative, and has a strong desire to help others. Just look at that smile!
So for my 100th post I am asking everyone to please say a little prayer and/or just keep Bridget and my brother and his wife, Mike and Therese, in your thoughts today.

An hour and a half later (11:30ish):
I just got an update.
For some reason the just moved Bridget out of the regular ICU and put her in a Coronary ICU. They told her cousin it was so they could watch her lung better. Mom's there now so she'll find out more.
Another update - her lung isn't collapsed but bruised. It sounds better but I guess it's worse. It puts more pressure on her heart, thus, the transfer to CIU. Bridget doesn't remember how she fell or what happened. I guess they are going to investigate it in the morning??

Update at 12:25 the Next day:
I guess Bridget had just finished up doing a mock rescue on some ropes when she fell. My mom said it is going to take 6 - 12 months for her to fully recover and be pain free. Bridget's goal though is to be able to walk down the isle at her brother Joe's wedding in August. Bridget is the maid of honor. I hope the best for her!! I'm sure with a lot of determination Bridget will accomplish a lot!

Thanks again for remembering her in your thoughts and prayers!
