Hey all, thank you so much for all the thoughts and comments about my accident. I was real surprised you guys even knew about it. My brother told me in the hospital that everyone had a different story. That is CRAZY! Hehehe...but I am alright.

This is what happened...I was riding and wanted to hit a BIG sno drift. Well I floored the Mountain Max, I was goin about 50-60mph when I hit it, I was about eight feet in the air before I landed. NO THE SLED DIDN'T LAND ON ME, NO I DIDN'T DIE. I smashed the back end...my brother flipped out. It's pretty smashed...Haven't seen it yet, I'll go out there tomorrow. I landed on my back, knocked the wind out of me. I got up to my knees, Koury and Justin carried me to my sled and I was gonna ride home until Koury lifted my jacket and noticed a big lump on my back. Half the size of a basketball. It was BIG! So I layed back down on my stomach. Before I knew it the ambulances where by my side. Never thought I'd go out and break my back! I got out tuesday(3-4) at 930pm. What a long 9 days of Peds.

So that wed(2-26). I had back surgery, Doctors placed 3 screws, a bridge and a rod in my back. I'll be back on the sled SOON!

But thanks again all, means lots to me!!!

I am BACK

Heres to a full and speedy recovery...getting hurt sucks. Take care and rehab it right..you'll be BACK to normal and riding soon enough. Heck, you might even be able to get a new smooth ride out of the deal... maybe a ummm, errr, a REV! (they are really easy on your back you know!)

Please check with your Doc, might be able to get him to write a scrit for a new sled as part of a therapy program :) lol yeah, wouldnt that be nice...

Good to hear! Like bc3 touched on, REHAB it RIGHT! I broke my leg years ago and all but ignored the rehab bit and now my leg to this day is missing the muscle strength and flexibility. It's very important to take it seriously. Best of luck to ya, here on in anyway! :)

Moonz, glad to hear your OK!
What is even better IS that you cant wait to ride again!
When I crashed on Christmas 95, it is a day my family and I will never forget, I didnt break my back, but my left arm was broke in 9 spots, and I shattered every bone in my shoulder! I spent only a few days in the Hospital, but 3 months at home, and 7 months re-habbing.
My family about freaked out when I went out and bought a NEW sled-DONT LET ANYTHING DETER YOU FROM WHAT YOU WANT!!!!!God Speed girl!!
