    Warm Thoughts, Warm Fuzzies, Good Vibes, etc.

    My niece Tammy was critically injured in an auto crash on Saturday night http://www.dailynews.com/Stories/0,1413,200~20943~1140092,00.html

    The left side of her face looks like a pepperoni pizza, she has no teeth left, broken jaw, two collapsed lungs (on a respirator), torn intestines, broken pelvis two or more places, broken right leg, broken ankle, broken left wrist, left arm looks like pepperoni pizza too, and has had seven pints of blood since Saturday night. Her blood pressure is screwed up too... 125/53

    She arrived at the ER conscious and able to tell her name, address, and phone number... but has been unconscious since. Doctors say they are keeping her in a drug induced coma and they so far don't think she has TBI... according to CT scans and other tests. But who knows... all that other damage... and no TBI too?

    Please say a prayer, sent warm thoughts, warm fuzzies, good vibes, etc for Tammy.

    Thanks,
    FrankF

    edit: Frank, just corrected the spelling of the title (hope you don't mind)

    What an agonizing torture to go through.
    Being in a coma is the best way for the body to heal itself. At least in a coma, the pain is shut off. My prayers are with her and also with you.

    Prayer and Faith can do great things, Frank. I am proof of that. Have already started a prayer chain for your niece and for you and yours to find the strength to handle what lies ahead. She is young and getting good care. Whenever you need to unburden yourself of doubt and worry, we are here. For that is what friends, family and this great place is all about.

    My thoughts are of you and your niece, Frank.
    I've also asked a 'practitioner', of my acquaintance, to 'work' for your niece.
    I'm suspect that you don't know what that means, but, no matter;
    who knows if it'll help, and it certainly can't hurt, eh?

    Regards,

    That was bad. She is alive. Of course my heart and thoughts are for her. She is alive. Just be there. when she is released from the hospital she will still be severely damaged and you will walk by her side.
    Put your problems in a drawer for a bit. Help.

    Update: My Niece Could Use Some Prayers...

    Thanks all for the prayers and warm fuzzies...
    My niece Tammy regained consciousness yesterday... but she is talking about things that never happened or didn't happen the way she remembers... not making a whole lot of sense. Could be the meds... or traumatic brain injury (TBI)... or both (I suspect TBI though). She has two broken ribs and a punctured lung, but is off of the respirator. No more blood transfusions since Monday... so hopefully whatever was bleeding inside has fixed itself. Keep those prayers coming... she still needs them.
    Frank
