Lyn Cote's Christmas Miracle

Wednesday afternoon my daughter passed out at the wheel and totaled our faithful van.

That wasn't the miracle. The miracle was that our van was totaled but our daughter is suffering only sore limbs--not even a scratch or bruise.

In case you're wondering, my daughter wasn't on illegal drugs or alcohol but in the ER, they couldn't find out what had caused her to pass out. The impact into a slender maple tree which stopped the van didn't even wake her. The First Responders had a time rousing her. And she was disoriented and remembered nothing.

We have an appointment with her primary doctor on Tuesday. She can't drive until we figure out what caused this.

She went off the road on a state highway and fortunately stayed on her own side. Not far down from where she went off the road is a lake on both sides of the road. She would have drowned if she had gone off the road there.

Some kind person called 911 from their phone reporting the accident. God bless them even if they couldn't stop.

So as you might expect, we are praising God for this miracle.

God bless all of you and keep you safe.

Hi Lyn,
So glad your daughter made it through that accident! Hope the doctor will find an answer and she will be able to drive again soon.

I ordered Her Patchwork Family and can't wait to read it over Christmas.


Lyn Cote said...

Thanks for your well wishes, Carrie. I hope they find it out soon too.
And I'm flattered that you ordered my book. Merry Christmas!

How scary for all of you. I will pray that you find out what happened and that it's manageable. I ko wI used to faint a lot as a teenager and young woman, and it was just low blood pressure that sorted itself out.
I'm sure you'll be extra thankful for this Christmas.

Lyn Cote said...

Yes, we are all grateful. Merry Christmas!

How scary for all of you. I am so glad nobody was hurt and thank goodness for whoever called 911. I'll pray that whatever the cause of her blacking out is not a serious problem and that the doctor can figure it out and take care of it.

Hello Lyn,
I am so sorry about your daughter's accident, but Praise the Lord for keeping her safe. I pray the doctors will discover what happened and it will be nothing serious. ~ Have a blessed Christmas, Patti Jo

Thanks so much for all your well wishes. My daughter has an appointment in Feb with a neurologist. Until then she won't be driving.
Hope you all had a lovely Christmas!
