Dear friends.....the last 50 hours have been a whirlwind.
On Thursday evening, my wife, Jan ("Photinii") was driving home on a two lane road when her vehicle had a sudden steering failure. It pulled hard to the left--nothing she could do to correct it--and went up an embankment, then filipped and landed on the highway on its roof. Despite the airbags failing to deploy she did not lose consciousness.
The bystanders first on the scene included a couple of off duty police officers who helped her to extricate herself from the vehicle. She was treated and released from the hospital; no concussion, no fractures, no spinal injury. Our Priests were at the hospital in record time and she received Unction.
Now the various aches and pains are beginning to manifest. First neck (so time for a soft cervical collar); next increasingly limited movement of her left arm.
Since this is the eve of her name-day we were at Vespers in spite of the pain. Pray for dynamis that she can received the Mysteries on her feast day.
