A Wild Weekend

Friday night, I chaperoned the Disco Prom Extravaganza for our school. Everyone cleaned up well and a good time seemed to be had by all.

Saturday night, my little brother (19 and a senior in high school and prom attendee) went to the movies with two friends and was in a car accident. A drunk driver pulled out in front of him and there wasn't anything he could do. The two girls who were riding with him were taken to the hospital and later released (on crutches). My brother is still in the hospital, being kept overnight for observation after he hit his head. The initial CAT scan looked good, but the docs weren't convinced that he was okay since he was having some problems answering questions and responding to verbal commands. We'll see what they say in the morning.

Friday night began the Georgia Youth Birding Competition that DS10 is participating in for a second time. So, he went with his teammate's Dad to get started while we did the prom thing (hubby does the school's photography events, also). Then, both dads took kids off for a whirlwind round of the state to catalog bird sightings. All went well and plans were made for next year's event.

DS11 went for a follow up doctor's appointment post surgery and the doctor found more inflammation than he wanted to see, so we go back again next Wednesday.

I can't wait to see what tomorrow (today) will bring...

If anyone actually reads this post, please say a prayer for these 3 kids who were in the accident. They were all pretty shaken up.

Hug your loved ones! Keep crusading against drunk drivers.
