Friday Night News

I had an e-mail waiting for me when I got in last night. WritingInAK who some of you know, but many of you have seen post comments here (you may also remember I went to her wedding in May)...she and her partner were in a car accident on Monday night in Anchorage. They were hit head-on by another car.

I am thankful to all the gods that they were not critically injured, but they both have multiple broken bones and will be slow to heal.

I have the immediate reaction of wanting to hop a flight to Anchorage, but I know that that is just not possible right now. So I'm asking for everybody to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

And give a hug to your family and friends!

Oh my goodness, I am so very sorry to hear about the accident! I will definitely be sending healing thoughts for a quick recovery and am so glad to hear that as bad as it was, it wasn't worse.

I'm so sorry this happened, and grateful that the accident wasn't worse! They're in my thoughts and prayers, as are you.

Check to the thoughts, and check to the hugs.

I hope they recover soon.

Oh Dear!

Best wishes to them and hope they recover well.

How horrible. Thinking positive thoughts for their swift recovery.

Eek! Get well soon, WritingInAK and partner.

Spin - it can be really hard not being able to be with someone when they are ill or injured, I know. So sympathy with that too.
