SYLACAUGA, Ala. (BNc) — After two weeks in a Birmingham hospital, Frances Zorn, wife of Lads to Leaders/Leaderettes founder Jack Zorn, came home from the hospital on Wednesday.
The two were involved in an eight-vehicle traffic accident near Sylacauga, Ala., along U.S. 280 after leaving church on Sunday night Feb. 15.
According to police and family accounts, an 18-wheeler had jack-knifed across the road, causing a fatality and a number of injuries.
Frances suffered the more serious injuries of the two and had to be flown to Birmingham where she had extensive surgery, in a fight to save her life. But that is all over now, and the family is marveling at her faith and in awe of the power of prayer.
One of their daughters, Sonya Zorn-Smith, said as she prepared to bring her mother home the afternoon of March 4, “It’s just incredible that two weeks ago she was in spinal surgery from this accident and last night she was sitting up eating a Girl Scout Cookie in bed. We are humbled by so many people approaching God’s throne on their behalf. We are beyond grateful.”
Jack continues to recover from four broken ribs, but is faring well.
Frances will have several weeks of rehab in order to gain full mobility, according to her daughter.
The family has provided updates on Frances through CaringBridge.org.
