Anne-Monique's (Annie) car accident.
To all concerning our daughter Anne-Monique's near fatal car accident in Oct 12, 2012 @ approximately 2pm:
Here is a link that basically explains it and also shows my daughter's vehicle. She was the passenger and my Son was driving her car. It states that there were two females in the vehicle. That's incorrect; my son is the second person driving the vehicle. Further South of my daughter's accident is the first accident. As a result of that accident, traffic backed up very quickly and my Son came up and over a blind hill and a 18-wheeler tractor trailer rig was literally parked in the middle of the road. The rest is history as they say.
My daughter has a right temple fracture/impact. Four broken ribs right side. Left collapsed lung. Right collar bone broken. Right clavicle/socket bone broken. Puncture wound right lower jaw, and a few other minor injuries. Tubes in both lungs. E.E.G., a breathing tube/respirator, pressure bolt in her head to measure brain pressure, and a very wide variety of other wires and tubes hook up to her that I never thought even existed, only in sci-fi movies. The main concern is the bleeding in the front right temple area. That has stopped, but then very early Monday morning her brain started to swell tremendously to the point that the medicine to reduce the swelling did not work so they had to cut a 6" x 6" section of her left skull out to relieve the pressure. That has helped tremendously, but she is still in a medicated induce coma until this Friday or Saturday to give the brain a rest and time to heal to reduce the swelling. Once she is off of that and hopefully she is able to regain consciousness, we then can determine her motor functions, what she can and can't do. We are differently in this for the long haul. My Son Jeff only suffered a right fractured rib, but of course he can't help thinking about the whole accident and the condition his sister is in now.He's doing what he can to cope with the whole situation by going to the gym and playing basketball, which he loves to do.
Friday (11/2/12): My daughter Annie (Anne-Monique) was tranported by ambulance to a Long Term Acute Rehab Center where team of experienced staff is well-versed in the rehabilitation and treatment of medically-complex patients. Nurses, Respiratory Therapists, and Rehabilitation staff work in tandem to provide weaning strategies that will help my daughter return to her potimized level of functioning. You are more than welcome to visit her. You may call me @ (702) 575-839. We only ask for the visiting hours to end @ 9pm, so that she can rest and be ready for the next day's therapy. She's now able to move her rt let and rt arm from elbow down. A traech and tube feeding was placed inorder for her to get proper nourishment. 22 days later after the accident she was able to swallow when told to do so by the therapist. Tears of joy have been coming down my face as she slowly show positive progress. I know its going to be a long haul, but we're staying strong and keep BELIEVING! I thank God each day that she survived the accident. It does hurt to see my daughter go through this who's been active all her life. But I know God is in control and He is the only physician that can heal her.God continuous to work His Miracle on her.
