A MIRACLE

Dear Readers,

I need your prayers like never before! Yesterday (7/20) at around noon my 18 year old daughter Allie was driving on the I-10 in Phoenix when a 4 ft. steel rod came from nowhere through her windshield and hit her collar bone ... spun her car into a 360 and ended horizontally across three lanes of traffic without touching another vehicle. Allie was rushed to a nearby hospital where they immediately took her to surgery for suspected life-threatening injuries. They feared severe damage to a major artery. Three hours later, we received the most incredible news ... no major damage to a major artery! God is quite the miracle worker!

Allie is still in ICU and we are preparing for another surgery in the next couple of days. They will be putting in two screws to her fractured collar bone. She is bruised, sore, some chipped teeth, and emotionally shaken.

Not knowing whether your child is going to live or die is something I hope no one ever has to experience. Add to this hysteria the fact that my son and I were thousands of miles away in Iowa. We were able to get a flight out and arrive in Phoenix at 1:00 this morning.

Please pray for Allie's recovery, my friends! Today is my birthday and I have received the most incredible gift from God !!! - my daughter! Allie's faith is strong, and she has many loving and supportive family members and friends.

Praise be to God!
Love you all !!!
Love, Nancy

Jenn in GA said...

when i was reading this, i thought to myself, "but she's in IA, isn't she?" what a terrifying phone call to receive!

so glad it appears that she will be just fine, but will remember all of you as this was quite a psychologically and emotionally challenging event.

praise God she's alright. keep us posted...and happy birthday!

Cheryl said...

Thanks be to God that her injuries weren't any more serious than they are. My husband had a similar collar bone injury when we were involved in a car accident 5 years ago which required surgery as well, so I know what she's going through. I pray that Allie will heal quickly and not have too much pain. She may have difficulty lying in bed at first as my DH did, so if you have a comfy recliner chair for her to sleep in, I'd recommend it for the first few days she's back home. Not exactly the birthday you were probably thinking of, but having the gift of still having your daughter with you must be a wonderful present indeed. May God continue to watch over the Riley family.

katemeri said...

Our God is an awesome God! I lift Allie and her doctors and your family up in prayer. I pray that the recovery is swift. How scary for you to be so far away. Praise God she is going to be okay! What a wonderful birthday present!

This is the kind of thing you hear about on tv and never think it can really happen. What a mighty God we serve!

Praises to Him for keeping your sweet baby safe. Praises to Him for getting you and your son home safely and quickly. Praises to Him for healing her collarbone and her heart. What a scarry thing for such a young girl to go through.

Thanks for taking the time to let us know. How great it is for us to be able to minister to you and your family during this time.

Oh Nancy,
I will have your daughter and your family in my prayers. I have no doubt that there were angels all around protecting her from fatal injuries. As parents we feel so helpless when it comes to our children...but in reality, only God has the ability to watch over them. Praise be to God for He is good! Love You!

Nancy said...

I can't imagine what you and your family must be going through, thank goodness your daughter is in good hands, spiritually and physically. With all these great thoughts helping her I'm sure she'll pull through.

Wow, What a miracle!! Thank god!! I live in AZ also and have actually been driving on the I-10 lately. My prayers are with you and your family. Anita

Melissa said...

Nancy, I'm also from Phoenix and the exact same thing happened to husband approximately 2 months ago. He was on I-10, heard a big bang and a crowbar came straight through the windshield and stopped about 5 inches from his nose. It was terrifying and he never saw it coming. I will pray for your daughter. I can't imagine how scary it is to have your child in the hospital with lifethreatening injuries. God is good and was truly watching over her.

Diana said...

Praying for your family. May continue to bless you. I can't even begin to imagine how terrified you must be. Be strong.

Stacey Schafer said...

My apologies - I've just re-read your post and see that whilst no Major arteries were damaged Allie has in fact suffered major damage. Sorry for my mis-interpretation. I do hope that her collarbone will mend quickly and that her life can return to normal soon.
