I'm sorry to hear that she was so severely injured. I can relate, not only because my own accident last spring. Back in 1979 I lost my only sister to a car wreck. Years later, my mom nearly got killed in one.
Will continue to hope & pray for her speedy recovery..

I appreciate the well wishes and the thoughts as well as the prayers.I would like to up-date every one as to how she is doing.Amy has had two surgery's and she is having problems with her kiddenys both are bruised and her left one is swollen and they are not functiong like they should so the doctors are keeping close tabs on them.She is to have surgery tuesday to repair her crushed foot and we were told that even after they repair her foot that she will never be able to walk like before.We were told that if every thing goes well the surgery would take between 7-12 hours.her face looks awful it is real swollen and her eyes are still swoll shut as well and when some one touches her she screams in shere pain.They had to sahve her hair off because they had to put a tub in to keep the fluid off of her brain.I will continue to post when I can.
