Mom is in ICU recovering from surgery. She has a thing on her leg to try to stabilize it. Dad is in surgery now. Both are stable. Thank you for the prayers!

We were going to try to keep it quiet till we got there, but everyone seems to know already. Ali Cherry and I (with Nani and Grand Dad behind us-John Heldreth) are headed to Asheville, NC. Mom (Marcy Heldreth Cherry) and Dad were in a motorcycle accident. A car crossed into their lane and hit them head on. They each have a broken leg, dad might have two, and he has a broken arm. It's serious, but they're both stable. Mom is in surgery and dad is next. I will try to keep you updated, but we really don't know a whole lot and probably won't till we get there.
Please pray for them and the doctors, and for our family. Also give a prayer of thanksgiving to God for protecting them from what could have been so much worse.
