April 1,, Horrible Day

Hope this doesn't upset anybody,,, when i went to the bathroom for a BM, it was a LOT of blood,,but when i stood up, or set down, it would quit.  Had to go a lot over the next 2 hours, and in time it started to clot, so i knew it was stopping.  I had kept wondering whether to call an ambulance, or wait and see.  I did call and got a doc's appointment for 10:15, and after a couple of hours, it had stopped.  I was glad i waited, found out it was a little tear and got a cream to use.  There were also a few small hemorrhoids.. It hasn't come back.,,, BUT,,,  Thot i would tell this in case there were some that have never had this happen, like me.

I had been home about an hour, after the doc.,and heard on my scanner that an ambulance was called to my bro Bs address... I called him and asked, hey, what's going on?  He and SIL were headed to Temple for a doc's appointment she had,, and he told me nobody was there, so i said maybe they got the address wrong.  THEN,,heard something about a gun shot wound, amputated arm,,,calling a helo, and sil calls me,, I didn't tell her all i was hearing, just that i was going over there.... Good thing all the cops were there, i flew.  There were LOTS of vehicles there flashing lites,, gonna have the helo land there, (changed their mind and went to hospital),,,

Found out it was an 18 yo girl, friend of nephew,,  shot thru the arm, then thru stomach, out the back, with a 30/30.   I couldn't get to him but his sister, (niece), came around the house about the time my bro B called back, so i handed her the phone and let her tell him what was happening...Nephew was still sitting in the floor holding her.

They had  stopped by his house,, fixing to go to Kingsland, and he took the gun out of his car, and in the process of unloading it, his thumb slipped off the hammer and it went off.

After they had her loaded up, i followed him out to their patio, and then his sis came back there too.  I knew he sure didn't need to be alone.  So we all stuck to him like glue.  I was the only one with him, and he kept saying he wanted to be alone, and got up when i answered my phone, and took off thru the pasture.  As soon as his sis came back, i told her, and she took off after him, but didn't find him.  You can't believe how all of our family started showing up about that time, and another 2 nephews took off down there and called back that they had found him.  We all stayed there til niece and he left together.

I'm probably not making much sense,,, but i pointed it out to my other bro, G, and dotter,,, this is what "family" means.  We were all there, the ones that lived in town.  Since this appointment sil had, took 3 months to get, and there was nothing they could do at that time,,,they went on, and kept in touch.  B called me about 9 last nite, and told me the girl was stable, after the surgeries,, fixed her stomach, and maybe would need more on arm,,,BUT,,OMG,, she was alive, and wouldn't lose her arm!!!

Don't know what's happening today,, haven''t heard anything.

We had had a prayer together while we were all still there, and i KNOW our prayers were answered and helped that girl.  I will add a note when i hear an update today.  In the meantime, tc, and
