Follow up on Krystal

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

It has been two weeks now since Krystal (my granddaughter) was in a car accident. I know it is a miracle she lived. A truck hit her head on, some say the driver of the truck went to sleep at the wheel and her car flipped, she was pinned into the car. After they cut her out of the car she was airlifted to the closest trauma hospital. Although she had her drivers license with her in the confusion she was listed as a Jane Doe when admitted. For a few hours nobody knew where she was. She was terribly frightened. One of the miracles is that my oldest daughter works in this same hospital and she sometimes looks over the admittance charts as she is a social worker, she went to Krystal and she recognized her, as soon as this happened Krystal's blood pressure went down.
She has some broken ribs, discs damaged in her lower back , some misc. other injuries. She is was released to go home too soon, I think. She went to E.R. 3 times over the next few days unable to catch her breath and in great pain. After the third time she has the right dosage of medication. She has had several ct scans since and she sees an orthopedic doctor today and neurosurgeon on Thursday. I am thankful for all the great medical people, I know they helped save her life. Her mom is on a medical family leave to take care of her during this time. Please pray for her during this time she is recovering. I appreciate so much the good thoughts and prayers from everyone. (sorry this is so long, I just had to let everyone know that I think it is a miracle.)

    The miracles that happen are amazing, aren't they? My brother in law was in a similarly awful accident several years ago (the driver of the car he was in was drunk), and everyone was certain approaching the vehicle they were dead. Thankfully, today he's a husband to my sister and a father to my 1 year old nephew. Prayer and a guardian angel are powerful things!

    Many prayers for your granddaughter and her continued recovery!

    What a horrible ordeal for your family and especially your GD. Thank God she is recovering. I do hope there is no lingering problem to deal with.

    Hugs to you. Embrace your miracle. I've had a few of those in my life, too.
