Some of you know my little sister was in a car accident about three weeks ago. She was suppossed to join us in California on vacation, but she was pretty seriously injured. She is making great progress and continues to astound her doctors. Her major injuries are to her neck and throat. She has a fractured C-2 vertebrae and should be paralyzed, but she is not. There was major damage to the "plumbing" in her neck (larynx, pharynx, trachea) which was so severe that her doctors have never seen anyone who lived through them. Consequently, they aren't sure how to repair it either, so she will be unable to speak until she is able to undergo surgery again in six months.
My brother is maintaining a website for her with pictures and updates:
If you have a second, please register and leave a message. I have received so much support from my Micechat family, and I know it would mean a lot to the rest of my family to know that she is in the thoughts and prayers of so many. She is strong and feisty- a lot like me and she won't let this get her down, but in the coming months when things will be hard, I know it will help her to know that so many are cheering her on.
And thanks to everyone for your concern and caring- it means so much to me, more than I can say.
