I'm sending lots and lots of vibes!

19!! It's a good thing she's so strong, hopefully she will get through this, but it will be long road to recovery.
I hope they find the people responsible soon.

Oh, my heart goes out to your friend, and so do my prayers... what an amazing person she must be, to save herself that way! I hope she recovers completely, with no ill effects.

And as for the other driver... when is our justice system going to start treating drunk driving as the criminal offense it is? So often when you hear these horrible stories about whole families wiped out by drunks, it turns out the driver had already been arrested for DUI once, twice, a dozen times. Why are these people driving at all? A car is a deadly weapon, and driving is a privilege... not a right.

Maybe we should make Designated Driver a paid profession, and legally require the use of a "DD" as a condition of being served alcoholic beverages.

I spoke to Alexis's boyfriend today, and she is getting better. She will eventually be able to walk again, and they have begun physical rehab already. Her docs say it was nothing short of a miracle. They gave her almost no hope of surviving, much less walking again. She has a long road ahead of her and many surgeries to restore her face, but they have high hopes for her, considering the way things have gone so far.

A lot of prayers, vibes, and TCS magic have once again helped someone in need!

That is amazing! I'm so glad she's on the mend. She sounds like a very spirited woman, determined to live through this ordeal. Many vibes to help her continue healing, and comforting vibes for you, her family and her boyfriend, and everyone else who's affected by this. horrible accident.

The drunk drivers will eventually come to know what they did, if they don't already, and I hope they will have it on their conscience for the rest of their miserable lives.

The only oddity I see is, how do they know she was hit by a drunk driver, if it was a hit and run?

I'm glad to hear that she pulled through!

for a speedy recovery!

mrblanche, the drunk driver thing was the story around the cab lot, but I got the real story from her boyfriend/cab owner. I guess I should have clarified that after I found out.

Glad to hear she's doing so well!


Its not nearly as important as her surviving and eventually being able to walk again, but since those things look good, how will she be looking? You mentioned before that she was in something of a fragile place, and that the wreck was very damaging to her face, and when she gets well again physically, something like that could be very hard for her.

With all the wonderful things that are happening for her already, I'll send a few more and prayers that either the damage won't be too great, or that she'll find the strength to be very grateful and joyful for a second chance at life, even if its not as perfect as she might hope.

She is looking pretty bad right now. The top of the cab squashed down and nearly scalped her. They sewed the skin and muscle back down, but she will probably lose some hair. They had to reattach one eyelid and she has staples down both sides from her temples to her cheeks, crossing her nose. She has not seen a mirror yet. She was a beautiful young woman, and looks barely human right now. I am afraid that is what is going to send her over the edge mentally. She is under the mistaken impression that her looks were all she had going for her. She had a rough, abusive childhood, and was still emotionally fragile from that. She retreats like a whipped pup if anyone says anything to her that she has done something wrong like she is afraid they will no longer love her for the slightest infraction. Even though she is recovering from her back injury, I am still very afraid for this poor child.

So glad to hear she is improving.

I know the scarring may cause dismay but plastic surgery can do wonderful things. Most important right now is the support of her boyfriend. I hate hearing of couples that split because one was unable to handle a situation like this.

Great news to hear that she is getting better.

I dropped in again today to follow this - I am so glad that it is good news. I will keep up the vibes to her and her boyfriend hoping that they make it through this and come out the other end of this life disaster tunnel much stronger and happier.

I just saw this thread, I'm glad Alexis is doing better. I will keep her in my prayers and am sending .

My heart goes out to her, because our society DOES put so much emphasis on looks.

One of my best friends in high school had a burn scar starting at his chin and going all the way up both sides of his head. A great guy, but he ran into prejudice all the time because of the scar.

Her boyfriend is several years older than her, and has been a rock. He plans on sticking by her and eventually marrying her. I honestly did not think he was that serious about her until this happened. He is making plans to build her a house, and is having the plans altered to accommodate her. Thankfully they will not have to include wheelchair access, just make getting in and out a little easier.
I just hope that she does not push him away because of her state of mind. He truly loves her no matter what she looks like.
I wish i could go see her, but the hospital is 2 hours away, and I can't get there. She will be coming to a rehab nearby soon, so I can spend some time with her.
I cannot stress enough how much all the prayers and vibes are appreciated. She was so amazed when I told her about it, and that people that she does not know are asking about her. It has been a real boost.

Her boyfriend sounds amazing, and he will be just what she needs during this time. Hopefully, even if she does try to push him away, he'll see it for what it is and not let her.

Keeping the and the prayers up for her!

That's a wonderful update. More for recovery and strength to deal with the surgeries to come.

It's amazing that she is recovering so quickly...how wonderful for her! Continued vibes for her complete physical and mental recovery
post #53 of 53
I'm just seeing this, and I was so relieved to see the good parts of the news.

I really hope they find the car that hit her.

Sending many for her complete recovery - both physical and mental.

She is very lucky to have you as a friend.
