Sad News

I've been quiet the last few days due to a horrible accident that befell us. On Sunday night the caveman was struck by a car right around the corner from my parents' house in NJ. We had pulled over on a deserted (and wide!) residential street so he could get something from the back of a car. An older woman plowed him down, admitting to the police she was distracted by something in the car and didn't even look up.

We are all so lucky that he survived, but will now have a long road recovering from five broken ribs, a bruised lung, broken nose and minor skull fractures. The hospital actually discharged him today and we made it back home (to CT), but it will take a while to get back to normal. We were actually meant to leave for Cape Cod on Saturday, so I had already been planning a happier hiatus from recipe posts.

I will try to get my mojo back in the next day or so, but think I need to sleep for about 20 hours just to recover from all of the worrying, driving, waiting and phone calls. Thank you everyone for understanding, and hoping to get the spark back soon...


  1. I am so sorry to hear about the accident! I am thankful that Caveman will be OK and am praying that his healing goes without incident.

  2. What a scary thing to go through. I hope he heals quickly and the recovery time is short~ God Bless...

  3. Hope you're all feeling better soon.

  4. So sorry to hear about the accident...our prayers go out to you and your family for a speedy and complete recovery. Take care!
