Amanda, 23 y.o beautiful being was Shot Point blank range by her boyfriend, who thereafter left her for three hours in his apartment on the living room floor...Amanda went into shock (as told by the doctors) and instantly lost almost all her blood...some how, some way, God or maybe just this monsters tiny bit of a conscience...he had came back for her...covered her with a blanket..carried her to his car & drove her to the hospital..HIMSELF. She arrived at the hospital...clammy skin...indented chest...blow to the head...and one pint of blood left, then her heart stops. the doctor immediately tries to resuscitate her...after 20 mins he was still trying while other doctors were insinuating that it might've been too late...he continued and thanks to him..Amanda is still alive today, fighting for her life. she had a minimum of maybe 12 surgeries in that brief moment. Her right side of her brain was completely filled with bullet fragments and served no purpose to her...causing the doctors to essentially remove it. Amandas skull was fractured...and up until this point her nose, cheek bones, and forehead are still broken bones attempting to heal. soon after doctors let us know that she would have no emotion, no memory, not be able to speak, or walk. and yet 5 months later she now cries and smiles...we are POSITIVE that this warrior princess will make it through. and that there will be nothing to stop her success once she comes out of this. her bright spirit and aura still shines through her body, even in this condition. i hope to spread this to prepare parents or even teens...human beings in general who are unaffected by seeing articles as such or hearing things as such...people are in denial, they think it could never be them...or anyone close to them. Her life was perfect...and so was mine and we never thought this could happen...i miss my bestfriend, i just want her back. Amanda needs all the help she can get. i never thought id be so close to someone is such a situation and this is complete devastation. share this story. make awareness. and help...anything is appreciated. we pray. you can too. #prayforamanda
