To everyone at Legacy:
I talked with Ellen this morning while she was still in the hospital. She was so glad to hear from her friends at Legacy last night and she wouldn't let you know this herself but she is in need of care. She like me, doesn't normally reach out, but after the car accident, because she is alone now, she has had to rely on neighbors and witnesses and people she knew, and now nurses to provide her with comfort and concern. She is not only grieving for her husband since 3 months has passed, as you all know, but is unsure of how long she will be in physical therapy or what will happen to her and other medical concerns she is worried about. I told her I would let you all know that we talked, judging from her voice, she was in fair spirits and was happy to hear from me and all who are remembering her in their thoughts and prayers.
On a personal note, I feel extremely fortunate for family that I have since Ellen and I talked, and now I am realizing this even more so because she is by herself. It really must be difficult to be alone, but she has some newfound friends who are doing what they can for her. From what I understand someone brought her flowers, but on a sad note, she is in much pain and remembers everything that happened to her. She is stressed about the fact she doesn't know when she'll be able to get back in touch with us, but I tried to assure her that God will get her back with His strength in due time.
She thanks everyone and will get in touch when she is able. I just wanted to keep you up-to-date about this setback for Ellen and hopefully she will be well enough sometime in the near future hopefully to post again, but she doesn't know when.
May God bless Ellen with His care and strength and all of her friends here at Legacy,
I tried to call Ellen again on the Hospital number that was provided which was 1 (781)704 8636 and it was busy so if I am able to get a hold of her I will give her your messages. Christy, that is such a wonderful idea about sending her cards, but I don't know the address. She will be sent to a Physical Rehab, she told me but I don't know when nor do I know the phone number or address. God bless you all for your thoughts and prayers on Ellen's behalf, she thanks you. I'll keep in touch.
