    and I'm really worried. Apparently, she was walking across a street when a van was driving at high speed to beat a light and he ended up hitting her. Now, she's in the ER and doesn't even know what part of her body was hit by the vehicle! They're testing for damage to her spleen, ribs, other internal organs. She had an x-ray, a CAT scan and doesn't even know if she had an MRI! I'm so angry at the driver for speeding and feel very "jumpity" at this moment.

    I'm about an hour and a half away from her on a good day. Right now, there's a snowstorm in New York and it's icy so I don't know how long it would take me to get there. My parents are the kind of people who say, "Oh, don't come." but sometimes they feel bad if I don't. I don't know if other people have parents like that.
