"She will need emergency surgery. Her popliteal artery is severed & needs a vein graft.",said the attending #ER surgeon.

I understood.

"I would like to see my #daughter.", I said holding together the brokenness I felt.I then remembered the need to call the #prison #Chaplain
"Mom, don't look.", my daughter said as the #ER team worked to put her together as much as possible.

I went to her to whisper in her ear, "We should pray now. They will be taking you into surgery to stop the bleeding. #Pray and repeat after me."
I held my #daughter & prayed as I heard my oldest daughter yelling from the other #ER room."I'm sorry!.", she yelled.She was driving that night.

The #nurse stopped me midway to my older daughter's room as the ER team continued to work on my other daughter.She could see...
..my weakness. I was weak to my knees. The #pain was unbearable. I felt breathless. I felt I had no life in me. I asked the nurse to pray for me. We stood silent.
They wheeled my daughter away to surgery and the medical staff tended to my other daughter. Her injuries were not as severe.

I escaped the area. My #spirit mourned & needed to yell with everything I had inside.I searched inside my #soul & yelled to the heavens, "You Promised!"
