Topic: Just when we were getting better
It has been quite sometime since I've posted and have really missed being on the site. May 8, Emilee and I were hit head on by a drunk driver just 2 miles from our home. I send praise and joy to the Lord for the both of us...Emilee escaped with absolutely no injuries other than that of the seatbelt and airbag. They flew her to Flagstaff Medical just as precaution. I however, my right femur shattered along with my ankle and heel. I was also flown to Flag, and underwent three surgeries within two weeks time. I am now in a cast and will undergo therapy after July 2 to walk again. I have a metal rod in my thigh holding things together, a brand new plastic ankle and heel! Can't wait to get some use out of them. During my stay in the hospital....I just kept thinking of Lee and all of our loved one's as they battled day in and day out, fighting this cancer...how brave, strong and awesome they all are and were to face such a beast. Their stories of hope and strength helped me not to complain. Gave me strength to get up and do as the doc's said even though it hurt like hell. Gave me peace that if they suffered the way they all did, my little ol' broken leg was nothin' but that...a little ol' broken leg and I was going to make it through this no matter what. It made me a whole lot tougher than I ever could imagine. I am soooo very grateful that I found this site well over a year ago...because looking back, I would have never thought I would be where I am now, getting through every day on hope, faith, love and the inspiration of everyone here.
