Perhaps you missed the note from Nance of Mature Landscaping in the comments on yesterday’s post: elderblogger Ashleigh Burrows was one of the shooting victims in Tucson on Saturday.
Her daughter updated Ashleigh’s blog, The Burrow, yesterday:
”My mom attended the Congress on your Corner event yesterday at her local Safeway. Just as she reached the front of the line to shake Ms. Gifford’s hand a gunman appeared and began shooting with an automatic weapon. My mom was shot three times.
“She suffered a wound to her left chest, one to her abdomen, and a third to her right hip. She is incredibly lucky that none of her organs were hit, even though one of the bullet’s entry wounds was in her abdomen. She has been taken care of by some fantastic and proficient doctors and nurses, and a wonderful social work team.”If you haven’t, you might want to bookmark Ashleigh’s blog. I suspect her daughter will continue to update us until Ashleigh herself is able to do so.
