Greetings to all the wonderful people of Aethelmearc from Elisabeth
Johanna von der Flossenburg
First of all please let me thank you! I was overwhelmed by the phone
calls, well wishes, cards, flowers, visits and offers for help. I am
truely blessed for being a part of this Kingdom!
Baronesse Ekat and Lady Biotta, both from the Hael informed this list
of my having been involved in a vehicle accident, literally within
hours from when it happened.
I cannot tell you much for it did happen so fast that I literally did
not know what hit me until it was over. my PT Cruiser was a brave
little protector and did a marvelous job protecting me, even a the cost
of its own life. Yes we will buy another PT Cruiser!
Two young men in a Trail Blazer I guess were feewling their oats and
tempted fate just a little too much and found out that a Trail Blazer
cannot outrun other traffic its crossing, that even a Trail Blazer has
to yield to stop signs and mostly Trail Blazers cannot fly.
After the being hit, hearing the front end clattering down the highway,
airbags surrounding me completely and the car finally stopping,
neighbors on whose properties the Trail Blazer and the Cruiser landed
helped all of us out of the cars. Also at the time I thought I was the
least hurt, especially since I could exit my car very normally through
the door, yes it was steaming from both radiator and airbags and the
neighbors thought it was going to blow up, the two young men were
pulling themselves out through their windows and their trail blazer was
upsidedown. It really was very sureal. Kind of something you see in a
commercial against drunk driving or speeding., just nothing that would
be ha[ppening to yourself.
The adjacent neighbors all came with first aid kits, blankets, cell
phones, etc to check us out. We all said we were fine, but were
informed that police and ambulance were called. After I called Harold
from a borrowed phone, my own was somewhere within my car along with my
eyeglasses, without which I do not see so well, I sat down in the grass
and noticed it hurt a bit to breeze. I immediately figured I had
bruised ribs again like in December. Well as soon as the ambulance was
on sight they grabbed me, checked me and off I was to ECMC. Trauma
Unit! After Xrays, Cat Scans, lots of pocking and pricking I was
informed they would have to perform emergency surgery since I have a
colapsed lung, and no their is not time to call my husband, and yes I
just have t trust the doctors and sign a consent form even if I cannot
read it, there is no time. Yes, it will hurt, yes I will be the guest
of this wonderful insitution for a while, and I better sign RIGHT NOW!
You can imagine I was not a happy camper. My cloth had all been cut
off me including my most favourite jeans as well as undergarments. AND
THEY HAVE THE NERVE TO ASK ME WHAT I WOULD LIKE DONE WITH THE RAGS?
They could not make one straight cut! I almost got up from the board
and showed them how to cut cloths correctly...... In my birthday suit
just wearing a neck brace...... Of course that did not happen. No,
they would not let me take over the hospital!
When I awoke on Wednesdaqy morning the phone calls started coming in
with Lady Biotta asking me for permission to post information. Well
and then the outporing of generosity only Aethelmercians can do
started. I thought I was in a wonderful garden sourrounded by love and
friendship. And believe me even the nurses commentated. Yes, I am
And I would like to thank you with all my heart. I am sure that all
the love and great thoughts extanded to me helped my recovery and my
release. It will take a little bit to be completely whole again, but I
am still surronded by the most precious thing: FRIENDSHIP!
Thank you !
