For those that didn't see my previous posts, DD1 (21) was involved in a car accident involving numerous cars. A car had overtaken her at high speed, cut her up, slammed their brakes on and swerved across the road.
As a result, DD1 has now been in hospital for 6 weeks with spinal injuries. She still had no movements or feeling from her waist down.
Today, she goes into surgery. Results of recent tests found a spinal fracture. As a result pressure is being out on the spinal cord and nervous system. Today, the operation will see two metal rods inserted into the spinal column to strengthen and repair the fracture, an hopefully relieve the pressure on the spinal cord and nervous system.
She's scared. I'm scared. The whole family is scared. Thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and supported us
The operation was successful according to the surgeon. She's in recovery right now and tests will be run soon to find out whether feeling/movement has come back.
