She was diagnosed with a concussion, possible whiplash, fractured clavicle, chest contusion, hip pain, 4 staples in her head (yes she was wearing a helmet and it was split in half.
8 weeks for initial healing and 6-8 months for complete healing of fracture.
August 6th Debby retuned to Vally View Hospital because she was having difficulty breathing. Debby spent 4 days in the hospital she has pulmonary embolism ( blood clots in the lungs in lower, middle and upper areas).
During her stay she was rediagnosed with mulltiple fractures of ribs, arthralgia of hip and traumatic brain injury.
August 25th another set back, the clavicle bones have seperated and dropped. (It was broken in three places originally). This means more time away from work and possible surgery after she is off blood thinners which could be 3-6 months.
Debby is a self-employed hairstlist and salon owner of Paradise Day Spa in Glenwood Springs Colorado. She only has 1 hairstlist that works 6 days every 5 weeks as a renter. She can not work due to her injuries for sometime. Mean while she has salon and medical bills coming in. We would like to raise enough money to cover her salon cost till she can get back to work.
Thank you for anything you can donate to alleviate financial stress during her time of healing.
Debby is my sister' I am hoping to relieve some of her worry and financial stress due to this traumatic incident. Thanks for helping my sis!

Another challege has risen as Debby's insurance company is claiming she has no coverage out side of in-patient coverage. She continues to have regular lab visits, is seeing two doctors ( one ortho and one internal medicine). She is temporarily closing her business until she is able to work again ...the new location on Walz Ave in Glenwood Springs.
