    I have been MIA the past couple days... missed the biggest loser (sorry girls wasnt trying to be a slacker). If you of you have been following by drama you will know this is the LAST thing that I wanted to happen.

    So yesterday afternoon I get a phone call from my dad (who lives in Colorado) telling me my sister Shelby (the one who just ran off and got married) just got into a car accident right outside of Heber (Her and her husband were driving back to Colorado from Phoenix) he tells me that right now she is unconcious and stuck in the car and tells me to stay near the phone and he will give me more info... well at this point Im totallyh freaking out, I feel helpless I dont know if I should just start driving or wait or what.... so later my dad calls me back and tells me that the ambulance just arrived and they are taking her to the airport to get air-evac'd to Phoenix because of her symptoms...

    Well basically what all happened within the crazy last 24 hours was:
    They were going like 70mph, a deer ran out in the front of them so they hit the deer, car spun and fell off a 25 foot cliff. My sister was driving and was the most injured b/c everytime the car rolled it hit her side. Needless to say there was someone watching over them because neither of them should have survived.

    So after me having to go pick up her husband in payson and driving back to the hospital last night I only got to see her for 10 minutes because she was in the trama unit most of the time which we cant go in. Later they put her in a room and was much relieved after I was able to see her. I took the day off work and was with her all day. She ended up having a fractured pelvis, her CT came back abnormal but I guess they figured it was congenitial so wasnt from the accident so has to go to a neursurgeon for that. Her whole left side is bruised, had a horrible concusion and basically feels like hell. But considering what she went through she is doing so amazing.

    So anyways I am hoping this is the end of all the drama. Im so so happy she is ok!

    Ok thanks for the vent, I feel much better!

              Thank you ladies,
              Yeah her husband is doing great also. He also got knocked out and has a bunch of scratches... he had to kick the window open because he was going to pull her out, but wait until the paramedics got there in case there was a spinal injury. But of course he was being a tough guy and didnt tell the paramedics because he didnt want to get separeted from Shelby. I do have to give his so credit though, he was unbelieveable during all of this as far as communicating with everyone and being there for her.

              My parents are doing good now, they were miserable last night knowing there was nothing they could do about there daughter they just felt hopeless and were a nervous wreck. The got the earliest flight they could so arrive this morning and got to spend all day with her.
