Better...

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to those who left comments and emailed me - I do appreciate your prayers and support.
Nikki is doing really well considering - it was touch and go for a while, but she's a pretty tough cookie.
She is now awake and today was taken off her machines. They will start surgery to fix her face within the next day or so - broken cheekbones, shattered jaw and a nasty gash from chin to ear. As you can imagine she doesn't look too pretty right now, but she is alive.
The problem was not so much her injuries as the blood loss. She had to have a massive transfusion (the doc said all her blood, plus more) and the danger is, that stirs everything up.
She has metal rods in her leg, one arm encased to the shoulder in plaster and a few pins in her jaw so far...

Sorry for the gory details, but again, a huge thank you to you all - your prayers and kind thoughts definitely helped.

Flossy,
Thank the powers that be; prayers, family love and support, good docs and nurses, and the power of youth, for helping Nikki come through the early and unknown time.

I heard about this accident from Robyn.
Are you related to her? Daughter?
Peace and comfort to your inner being Flossy,

Flossy,
it has been a good long time now and I pray this means you are busy with your Nikki and that she is on the way to a full recovery.

We think of you all often and hope this finds you coping and well.

Just wanted to drop in to see how things are, do not respond we know you must be so very busy.
