Terrible wreck victim
Organized by: Janice Kalogiros
My mom is 79. My dad is 83. Mom lives on kidney dyalisis. And just learned how to walk and function again, after complications she had from kidneys. Stopped breathing. Was in hospital , then nursing home for rehab for these last 6 months. She's been home about 2 months. She was walking without walker. And driving locally to town to feel independent. I am always with her. Thursday night we were pulling out of my ex husbands driveway, looked both ways. We seen no cars coming. Proceeded to pull out, was hit by a F250 big double cab truck. We were at a standstill pretty much. When the truck hit moms rear side going 60 miles an hour. The impact was sooo hard. Spun her car in circles several times, until we stopped on the other side of road. Going into the woods. We had seat belts on. Thank God. Once I opened my eyes and looked over, seen mom was knocked out. Breathing was slow. Seat belt embedded in chest. Air bags all deployed. I couldn't get her out. Then she opened her eyes and said my name. Once tescue arrived they cut cars seat and airbags. Got her out. Taken to Shands. Where she still remains. Cut and bruiser to face , neck, arms and major bruising all over chest. She was in shock. Now she is very confused. And does not know who we r for the last 2 days. She has been moved today to the Neuro unit to begin seeing what's wrong with her head. So my parents car was totalled. They have insurance. Raising money to help them get a car. They will owe 5000.00 once the insurance covers value of car. They don't have it bi don't have it. They rely on their car. As my mom is only going to keep surviving by going to dyalisis once home. And dad needs transportation to see her everyday at Shands. Article on my Facebook page. Thank you. I've never done this before. But my parents really need help. Thank you.
