One year ago today...

One year ago, I got the phone call saying my baby sister, Erika had been in an accident and was life flighted. I almost lost her that day.

One year later, she isn't done with her surgeries, she still doesn't have an ear, but she is alive and beautiful.

I am so thankful she miraculously lived through that horrible accident. I don't know what I would do without her. I love you Erika Renee!


  1. My heart goes out to her, I experienced that at 14 and can remember the darkness, depression and the confusion that came with the head injuries, it took me seven years to feel like me again and for the horrible nightmares to stop.
    I pray that everyone has patience with her and unconditional love....accidents like that are life changing and the truth is unless you've lived through the same thing you have no idea the intensity of the effects!
    To your sister.....fight hard to recover, allow the love around you in and remember although it may be hard to sometimes...thank god you are alive! My thoughts..prayers and love Goes out to you!

  2. I also experienced a trauma similar when I was hit by a car, though I was much younger. It gets better, so hang tough! Erika, you look great!
