A young girl lies in a coma while her parents keep vigil by her bedside.

Every day is the same: no real change in her condition.  Very frustrating.

Our 10-year-old daughter, Jon-Earicka Grace, was a vivacious, active girl up until last week, when she was struck by a drunk driver while crossing the street to go to school.  Ever since the accident, she has lingered in a coma in the PICU, where she continues to fight for her life.

It's been a terrible ordeal for us, her family.  While Jimmy (husband) stays home with Paidric Nathaniel, our toddler son (he's barely two), I have been staying here at the hospital, just so I can be with Jon-Earicka.

I don't want to leave her, in case something were to happen to her.

Right now, doctors don't hold any real hope for Jon-Earicka.  They say she could have severe brain damage; she isn't really responding that well to the tests they've run on her.  She not only suffered catastrophic injuries to her brain: she also sustained a broken hip, a broken leg, and a broken arm, not to mention, broken ribs and numerous contusions, scrapes, and heaven knows what else.  She remains in poor to critical condition.

The holidays are upon us once again, but we are feeling anything but merry.  It's hard to see the joy that the season brings when one of your own family members may be dying.  I am trying to be positive, but each new report from her doctors threatens to knock me for a loop.  The news is mostly bad and frankly, I don't think I can take that much more. ... I am more than ready for some GOOD news for once!

Doctors are saying if she wakes up, she could be severely disabled: unable to walk, talk, possibly even see or hear.  She would require 24-hour care.  There are no guarantees as to how she will do; the doctors will know more when she wakes up ... that is, IF she does ...

Well, I am going to try to get some sleep.  I will update you on Jon-Earicka's status once I know more.  Until then, all we can do is hope and wait ... and pray.  Until later, this is Tammy, Jon-Earicka's mom, saying so long! Just say some prayers for us; we could really use a huge miracle about now!  Thanks in advance!

Too much sadness for this time of year. Christmas is a time to rejoice. I may have to stop reading your sad ones, Karen.

Sickness and injury don't play fair, do they? Especially during the holidays ... well done, Karen, but SO sad. Hopefully, Jon-Erica will get the miracle she and her family desperately need.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(
