Thank you for Praying for the Joe Joslin Family

Joe and Kim with their daughters

Thank you for praying for Joe Joslin and his family. His wife, Kim, their twin daughters Emma and Elyse, along with Kim’s mother and Aunt were in a terrible accident a little before 4pm on Friday, June 24. Joe has been a contributing editor to since its inception.

Joe wrote on his Facebook page early morning on June 25, about 12 hours after the accident:

Updates as far as I know them:
1. Kim has been discharged as of 3:30am. She left with Erin Mock who will stay the night with her. Kim is still dizzy, weak and vomiting occasionally. She is black and blue and purple from head to toe but is doing the best of the bunch.
2. Emma had her head sewn up by a wonderful plastic surgeon. She also has a broken rib(s) but they are not serious. She has been generally alert and chatty but also has bouts of concussion symptoms. Headache, nausea, blurred vision, etc. She was admitted to the Children’s Hospital. She struggles when she tries to tell about what she saw. She was very traumatized by it all but is trying to put on a brave face. She finally got to see mom an hour ago. Grandparents are sleeping in her room tonight.
3. Elyse was unconscious at the scene and for a lot of the Aeromed flight, coming to occasionally but very out of it. She has gotten steadily better since arriving. She has a couple of non displaced fractures of her pelvis but should be able to get up and around soon with few limitations. She’s been admitted to the Children’s Hospital just a few rooms down from Emma. I’m staying with her tonight.
4. Kim’s mom and Aunt were seriously hurt as well, especially the Aunt. I don’t have any updates so I will have to leave that to others. They are alive and expected to recover.
5. There’s no way I can ever thank you all enough for your concern, prayers, offers of help. It’s truly amazing and we will never forget it. We have a long road ahead of us, but I can rest in the fact that no matter what comes I have another day to cherish my wife and kids and kiss their beautiful heads. Yesterday afternoon I stared at the gut wrenchingly real possibility that I had lost all of that in the blink of an eye.
