    Indianapolis, December 29 - Lennis Dean can't stop thinking about her great-granddaughter.

    "She's an outgoing child. She likes dancing. She likes to swim," said Dean.

    But right now 11 year old Meghan Butler, a star pupil at Holy Angels Catholic School, is fighting for her life. The news still seems hard to believe to the great grandmother who helped raise her.

    "It was a horrible, horrible feeling. I hope you never have to experience it."

    I'm praying she pulls through this without any serious brain damage. I bet her brother feels horrible about this happening. Poor kid.

    from the link above:

    It happened Tuesday afternoon near a bench in the courtyard of an apartment complex on Indianapolis' near east side. Meghan's 10 year old stepbrother was swinging a campfire roasting fork, when the handle came apart and the sharp metal flew out and lodged in Meghan's forehead.

    Indianapolis, Feb. 28 - The clapping, cheers and enthusiastic welcome back were a bit overwhelming for 11-year-old Meghan Butler. Just two months ago a bone flap was removed from her right side to relieve swelling after a grilling fork pierced her forehead and lodged six inches deep.

    The link takes me to a "we're sorry" page from the newspaper, but I'm glad she survived... I'm sure by now (over a year later) she's doing great again. :woohoo:

    Happened to us camping only the fork stuck in a tree and not someone's head. One of the kids was swinging the fork around on that little strap on the handle and the thing just came apart.

    What a little sweetheart. All she's been through and she worries about her brother and mother.

    God bless her and I hope she continues to improve.
