A is doing much better. She was in the hospital (icu) for about 5 days after the reattachment, then Mom stayed with her at SVU for about a week after that (Dad was there part of the time). She is managing very well and is going to be able to finish her classes. I went down this weekend to pack up her stuff and move it to storage. Let me tell you, that was alot of work!! The pictures are from a week after the accident. It kind of looks like a slug with yellow eyes. She now has the stiches out (still has the pins). She probably won't be able to do much physical therapy until the bones heal and they can remove the pin. They also had to release her carpal tunnel in order to get to the tendons that needed reattaching. I hope I thoroughly grossed you all out with these pictures. :):):)go to her blog for pictures our prayers
are w/ her.
