    OH you poor, hurtin' girl! I feel awful knowing how much pain you must be in right now, coupled by immediately feeling thankful that you are HERE to FEEL PAIN!!

    Wishing you a very rapid recovery and remember to push and work hard in physical therapy, but not TOO hard...rest when needed(!), take pain meds BEFORE PAIN GETS SEVERE (no waiting till it's excruciating or else it's harder to catch up with!)

    You definitely are being watched over, as everyone has stated!! G-d is wonderful and it was NOT YOUR TIME to go...clearly you have more to do on earth, specific things, and if I were you I'd be so happy to know that I'm specifically MEANT for SOMETHING...I'm definitely not trying to be "creepy", but I'm of the opinion that if one survives an accident that "shouldn't" have been survivable, it is FOR A DEFINITE REASON. You were blessed. Its an incredible thing....

    BEST to you, AND PRAYERS A-PLENTY COMING YOUR WAY! ! B2H ;0)

    I had no idea it was that horrific! The car is unbelievable. Just wow.

    Hoping for a quick recovery!

    I know recovery wont be easy, but you will be a stronger person for it.

    Oh, you poor dear!

    I have to agree with everyone else, God's obviously got some big plans for you. Looking at your car I can't even phanthom how you survived. My prayers are with you as you recover. Take your time and don't try to 'brave it out'. Be careful even when you are feeling good. I've learned after a few surgeries that just because you look a bit better or feel a bit better doesnt mean you're done healing.

    So glad that you're alive!

    So a little update..

    I am still in the hospital. The PT's come to my room and do exercises and help me go on short walks with my walker. We re-did the x-rays on my arm (this got forgotten because everyone was focused on my leg/hip. The first hospital took three days to put a half slab on.) because it started to cause a lot of pain again. Turns out the break was worse then we thought so I have a full cast on my arm now.
    Staples all came out and the incisions are healing great, although my muscles are slower. I can bend my leg about six inches now, but am moving much easier. I can get to the bathroom on my own with my walker now.
    Still, it is looking like I could be in here about another 2-4 weeks yet. Crossing my fingers I don't have to spend Christmas here..

    Engineers flew down the day I had surgery from Toronto to see if they could find out how the car took the impact so well that I survived. I don't know if it was the car, how I drove, or both, but I do know i'll make the most of my second chance.

    Thanks again everyone. You guys are awesome.

    It brings us back to earth sometimes, when an unaided trip the bathroom is a bonus, then it makes the petty struggles in life pale a bit doesn't it.

    I"m sending a 'Home for Christmas wish' your way

    These new photos look as if healing is starting to really take place (just saw this thread - oh my goodness!!) - your strength and determination are very admirable, and you can count on prayers being sent your way from N MI! There is no doubt in my mind you had legions of angels surrounding you - keep up those good spirits, and God bless :)

    I, too, just saw this thread. I am so sorry you are going through this and so glad God sent His mighty angels to protect you. You are beaten and battered but you will survive, thank God!

    Hope that you continue to make progress every day and that you are home for Christmas. Keep us informed on your progress and I am subbing this so I don't miss it!!

    Sounds like a step forward and back also. At least now the arm can heal also. I hope you don't have to be there for Christmas, but getting well is the first priority. Healing vibes are coming your way & hoping the pain is less stressful and that you can sleep.

    Much I wish to say, but only have a moment so will say what's most pressing to me at this time:
    As an RN, I can say with certainty that your incisions are healing BEAUTIFULLY! Appears you haven't a TRACE OF INFECTION in any, & the skin edges are perfectly approximated!! You are doing incredibly well...I couldn't be more sure of the speediest of possible recoveries for a person facing your sort of injuries!

    You're kicking butt and takin' names!!! Keep it up, lady! ;0)
