Some of you may or may not know, but Andrea was in a very serious accident on Saturday evening, June 17th and she is currently in the ICU at Harborview. She will eventually be okay, but she has a long road to recovery. From what we have pieced together, here is what happened...
She and a friend were out Jeeping at Evan's Creek on the 520 trail with a couple of other rigs. The back tires started slipping and the Jeep rolled off the edge of about a 1000' cliff. Andrea was ejected about 350' down, where she layed for several hours before rescuers were able to reach her. A couple of good Samaritans sat with her with blankets and water, while another drove down to call 911 for help. When help finally arrived, she was pulled up to the road and driven to Wilkeson, where she was intubated and airlifted to Harborview. Upon arrival, she was taken into emergency surgery due to internal bleeding. The surgeons removed her spleen, which stopped the bleeding. She is pretty heavily sedated and still intubated, until they can get her in for additional surgeries. She has a broken arm (up by her shoulder), pelvis and she broke almost all of her ribs. Fortunately, there are no head injuries and she understands what is going on. She was even able to communicate with us a bit on Sunday afternoon and in true Andrea fashion, she flipped us the bird. Haha...
Since she's still in ICU, there are no visitors allowed quite yet. We will be sure to update everyone as she progresses and once she moves out of the ICU.
Until then, this is how you can help! The medical bills alone will be astronomical and she will be unable to work for quite some time. So anything you can do to help is much appreciated! Thank you so much for all of your thoughts and prayers ♡ I know it also means a lot to Andrea.
