Jen I am so sorry to hear about the accident! I'm crying while I'm reading this. I'm glad Paige doesn't have to have surgery and that they think she might come home this weekend. Paige definitely has my prayers. I will pray for Aaron too.

I know I have never posted on your TR before but I have been reading it and just had to post to add that I will keep your daughter and her friends in my prayers. Also all the families that were effected by that crash.

You and your family are in my prayers. I can't even imagine how scary and sad it is for your daughter to go through. No matter how much they grow up, they are always our babies.

Yes, they do look like fries! Where's the ketchup?

Just curious - how many autograph books has Claire filled with signatures from Disney so far? Do you think you have all autographs at least once yet? I was in front of a couple once that had been at the parks for 3 weeks straight - and they had a school age kid with them. It would have been March. They were on their 3rd book, and were trying hard to find Jiminy Cricket. They said he was among the hardest...

I couldn't imagine being away from home for that long, the $$ spent, nor working so hard just for Disney autographs! I like Disney, but not that much!
We have a couple of books. It's not always a priority for her to have them ,but she likes to get them if we are meeting a character. On our first trip with Claire one of the first characters we went to meet was Jiminy. but I now he's hard to find now.
I would love to stay that long, but I know it's not for everyone.

Glad the line was short, but that does stink that Rapunzel wasn't there.

We did get to see her later though.

It was awful. I went to see the site where it happened today. You can see his tire tracks right up to the field so he must have not flipped till they hit the beans.
Aaron is sounding like he should recover, but it will be slow.

I ended up seeing a therapist after and it really made a world of a difference in my anxiety while driving. So it may help to look into this. If there is anything I can do please let me know.
We have talked about this too. I told her that her and Ashley should get some sort of counseling. I know Paige will need and and Ashley remembers everything, so she for sure needs it.

I've had lots of tears this past week.

I hope that you will continue to update us. I am very sorry for the tragic loss of life in this accident. What you described is literally my worse fear and the reason I never turn off my cell phone at night.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and the other families at this difficult time.
We were lucky and she didn't need the chest tube. They said the lung will heal on its own.
Yep, I will keep mine next to me always now.

Paige was allowed to get up out of bed on Thursday. She was in so much pain that I thought for sure it would be at least Sat. before they released her, but by Friday she had really improved and was released. She was so happy to get out of there. She is doing very good. Still sore, but moving more and even without the aide of the walker half the time.
She is now bored out of her mind and antsy. Tomorrow we are going to go and get her plates for her new car she bought about a month ago. This is her exciting outing and she can't wait. Her friend said she would pick her up today to take her for lunch, but I said I will drive here there and Claire and I will sit at a different table. Yes I am over protective Mom right now.!

Ashley had to go back to the hospital this week and they found she had a concussion. She was felling dizzy and sick all the time. I am not sure what they did for her, but Paige said she has a slew of medications she is taking now.

Aaron was downgraded out of Neuro ICU, which is such a good thing. We have heard he remembers nothing of the night or accident and thinks he is there from another accident he had last winter. He knows nothing about Nate dying at this point. Paige and Ashley have decided on waiting to visit him since he doesn't remember and they don't want to be the ones to trigger any memories.

Paige thinks she might be having some small flashbacks to the accident. She says she is dreaming of it being dark and hearing radios going off. It might be a memory or it might be just something her mind has made up after us talking about how the night went.

I went to the accident site yesterday. You can see light tire marks coming from off the side of the road and then across to the bean field. The truck must've really bounced because the beans are hardly damaged at all. It looks like the tops of some of them of broke off and only a few spots where it might've touched ground before going airborn again. I could also see the tow truck tracks. The truck did land quite a ways away from where it entered the field.
I saw some orange spray paint marks and I am not sure if that marks where each person was, or some other important thing. Amazingly, I only saw a small amount of glass in there too, but I didn't walk all the way around. I just wanted to see it and kind of get an idea what happened.

We are happy to have her home and to get back to a semi normal life. I also think God must've pushed me over the past weeks, because I did a lot of work that didn't need to be done then, but I wanted to be ahead, since I had so much going on this month. Thank God I did, because I can't imagine concentrating on it completely over the past week or even the next. I just have to tweak stuff now and thats not hard at all.

Thanks everyone for the thoughts and prayers.
