Last week we asked for your miracles and we were blessed to have women open and ready to share. This month Kim Shultz will be sharing....
June 16, 2010 was a day that my family and I will never forget.
It started out as a normal day, with my husband and I headed to work at a local restaurant where we were both prep cooks.
We were driving on the highway when out of the corner of my eye I saw a pickup pull out from the stop sign on a side road. I yelled, "Look out!" to my husband and that's all I remember.
3 days later I woke up from a drug-induced coma and was told what had happened. We had been in a car crash.
Later I found out that a hospital chaplain told my son, who was 14 at the time, to plan my funeral.
I was in the hospital at total of 27 days. During that time I had 4 surgeries: 1 to put a plate in my fractured knee, 1 to put a plate and screws in my shattered thighbone, 1 to put a plate in my broken upper jaw, and the last 1 to graft skin from my thigh onto my forehead because a piece of the skin from it was left on the windshield.
I would later find out that I was given a 40% chance of walking. I do walk now, sometimes with a cane, and on my worst days with a walker. I couldn't even begin to put weight on my right leg until 3 months after the accident due to the severity of the fractures.
By God's grace, I'm alive even though the accident has left me totally disabled.
I struggle daily but I try to remember to thank God for those struggles and for giving me more time with my husband, my children, and my grandchildren.
Many people have called me a "walking miracle". They're right.
