Family Emergency

by Meghann on March 8, 2009

Hi everyone.  It’s Caitlin.  As you may have already heard via Jenna,  Meghann and I had to ditch the Britney Spears concert and RUSH back to Orlando.  Meghann’s lovely sister, Kelly, was hit by a car this evening while riding her bicycle.  Luckily, she was wearing her helmet.  Her prognosis looks OK right now.

 

Meghann is with her family on the east coast of Florida and doesn’t know when she’ll be back to Orlando.  But, she’ll resume blogging upon her return.

 

I know Meghann and Kelly would appreciate your support, so please keep Kelly in your prayers and thoughts.

 

This is a friendly reminder to ALWAYS WEAR YOUR HELMET — no excuses!

Hopefully your sister is okay, and makes as speedy a recovery as possible. I know a few people who have been hit by cars while bike riding, and it’s so scary. So yes, everyone wear your helmets, and if you are driving your car, watch out for those on bikes.
