Megan's accident

Monday, March 16, 2009

I have so much to say. I've been away from blogging for too long. Just a quick update and a request for prayer.

On Thursday afternoon my sister Megan was in a motorcycle accident. She had just picked up her bike from the shop and was entering into traffic when a car struck her. She fell off her motorcycle, and her helmet popped off. Thankfully she didn't have any head damage.

An artery in her left leg was completely shredded, and she broke her leg in three places. The doctors took a piece of an artery from her right leg to put in her left leg. Megan wasn't getting any blood flow to her foot, and the surgeon said she was too young to lose her leg. The first two surgeries were unsuccessful, but the surgeon was finally able to save her leg with the third surgery.

Megan is still in the ICU and on a ventilator. We're hoping it will come out today. A plastic surgeon will also be stopping by today to look a Megan's skin. During the accident, Megan's skin became very twisted around. My mom came up with a good analogy. When people put on ribbed socks, most people straighten out the ribs. Megan's skin is kind of like a sock that isn't straightened.

In several weeks, once the artery is healed Megan will have surgery to fix her bones. Her leg was broken in three places. Right now she has some huge rod attached to her leg to hold it in place.

Only two people are allowed in Megan's room at a time. There are four visiting times a day, twenty minutes each visit. It's very difficult to leave her.

If you're the praying type, please pray for Megan's recovery. She has a long road ahead. For updates on her condition, you can check the Facebook group, Get Better Soon Pistol.
