You ever have a lot of thoughts you can't articulate and don't know what to do with?
That's what I got right now. Just at a loss.→
My 15 year old niece was attacked, suffocated and beaten. The blows to her head and/or the suffocation were enough that she has no memory of what happened between going to lunch at school Monday morning and waking up in the hospital that afternoon. The classmate who attacked her is in custody and has so far been charged with sexual assault but police are holding off on more charges as they hope to be able to bring an attempted murder charge.
My niece has severe swelling of the face and head and a number of puncture wounds to her face (they still don't know what made those wounds). She is off to a battery of neurological tests in the morning.
On the bright side she said she wishes he could be released so she could "beat his ass"
and she is referring to it as "the worst valentine ever"
. She is tiny but tough. Also, the school has arranged things so she will not have to go back for 3 weeks.
Me, I'm full of stuff churning around. I can't imagine what her dad is feeling.
