As Worried As I Am, I Am Still Referring To Them With Bird Names

Although I have paused before putting this much "real life" on the blog, I know that some of you come to me via my good friend The Crib Chick, so I want to make you aware.

Mrs. Chick was on her way home from VA to be with her father, who is very ill. En route, she and the family were in an accident near Nashville. During a snowy-sleet-storm, she lost control of her van, hitting the last car (a semi) of a pile up. She was nearly missed by another semi that stopped just short of hitting them from behind. They are fortunate to be alive.

She, the Rooster, and the peeps are recovering in Nashville. Her mother, stepfather and brother drove out to help. They are unable to recover their things from the car and are working to get insurance issues fixed before coming to OKC to spend time with family.

Worry and pray with me.

Thank you *so* much for posting this! I have been praying hard for The Crib Chick since she posted about her trip back home. Please let her know that she and her flock are in our prayers!

I am so relieved to hear that they are recovering. Please, if there is anything that I can do personally to help, please reply here. I can email contact information directly.

Oh No!

Thank you for letting us know! Are they all okay? (i.e. not hospitalized)

Their family will be in my prayers.

If there's anything we can do, please let me know. (You can leave a comment on my blog, and I'll get it.) Please let Jill know we're praying for them and are thankful they are all okay.

PS: If her family is coming through northeast Kansas and need a place to stay, they are more than welcome here.

Oh my.

I don't know her, but she's got my prayers for sure.

Thank you for letting us know. We're praying for them here in Alabama. Please post updates as you hear more? They are some of our favorite birds in the world, and we're worried.
