Keri Lynn's update

Keri Lynn was taken to a little hospital in the Florida Keys, and they did tests on her and discovered that she has a fracture at the back of her skull. That's where she hit her head, and her brain jostled to the front of her skull where she has small spots of hemorraging.
Talk about feeling anxiety like a balled fist at the pit of my stomach.

The doctor then went on to explain that they will transfer her to a hospital in Miami where a neurosurgeon can have a look at her. Then, he expects, she'll probably be observed for a few days and then released.

Mike and Cathy are there with her and say she's holding up just fine.

The hospital is arranging ambulance transportation for her now. Then, once we talk to the neurosurgeon, we'll know more about what to do from there.

I talked with Keri Lynn for a few minutes. She's in good spirits but, as she puts it, is "an emotional wreck." Poor baby. I wish I'd gone with my instincts last night and had her taken to the hospital then. I was glad, though, to have the opportunity to talk with her and explain a little more clearly to her about what the doctor told me.

Parenting. Life's biggest adventure!

I have not been over for a couple of days. I am so sorry to hear about Keri Lynn. I am praying that she will be good as new in a few days. I know it must be extra hard on you not being able to be with her. I will be thinking of you and keeping you all in my prayers. connie from Texas
