blood, ambulances, and a day in the ER with Kandee...

WARNING: this post contains pics that are very GROSS and BLOODY! If you don't want to see them, please click "close" right now! For the strong of stomach, get ready!

i had just finished uploading the blog I typed...called my mom...and went to grab one of my computer cables...I walked by the glass wall next to the sliding glass door....my knee, or shoulder, or something bumped against the glass window....
it sounded like a hundred plates breaking on the floor...
I looked down and saw blood all over....and my leg missing a huge chunk of skin, all around my leg, and I could see down to the bone!
If the huge piece of glass hadn't stopped at the bone it would've cut my whole leg off!
 The floor was covered in blood, and many towels were soaked in blood, my shoe was filled with blood....people could hear my screaming from the building across the street.
I had worked on The Hair Battle Spectacular Show the day before and this was the down- day with no filming, I went back to work on the show the neck day- and one of the first questions I asked the paramedics was, "will I be able to work tomorrow?"... he just laughed and said they'd help me! ha ha 

...I took a picture and posted it to facebook...it really did help distract me from crying...
we were headed to UCLA hospital


my pretty hospital bracelet


my leg wrapped in a billion towels...the blood had dried when they went to take it off....and I yelled so loud, they said they thought I was  in labor in the hallway (but I told them, I've already had 3 kids...and this hurt worse than any of the labors pains I've ever had!)

WARNING: the next pictures are REALLY, REALLY GRAPHIC...if you feel that you can't handle them, please close the website now....!


this is a picture of the glass left on the bottom of the window, you can see the blood still on it....they covered the window up with wood and tape when I got back....they even upgraded my room to a penthouse suite that is really fancy.....i would rather have my leg better and the little room though! They were glad to see that I could move my toes, and I would be able to use my leg like normal.


I had to have x-rays to make sure the glass sheet didn't sever my bone...


they had to call in a specialist to see how to re-attach my skin... we were there from 2pm until almost 9pm...and for at least 1 1/2 hours I didn't have any pain medication....they said I was "really strong" and couldn't believe how tough I was....there was a man with a small laceration that was screaming his head off....and I almost had my leg cut off AND  was doing good....


I hadn't eaten anything all day, and I couldn't eat because they said the medicine would work better with an empty stomach.....and I could only have some ice chips... 
 
UCLA has the nicest staff of nurses and doctors....the amazing doctor, Anne Schmidt, took 2 hours to sew my lag back together...she was a perfectionist, and we laughed and talked about cupcakes...and she said she couldn't believe I was laughing and talking about desserts!

j
She did such an amazing job! I can't believe how she put my leg back together! They said I will need plastic surgery to make my leg look normal again...but at least I can move my toes and walk on it!
I have to take a lot of medication due to how severely the glass cut my leg, infection could be really bad and the pain is excruciating. It feels like lighting bolts of pain and like a knife is stuck in my bone.

I am so thankful that I am ok, and that it didn't cut my neck or face, the glass missed my femoral artery, which could've been real bad!
I am so thankful that I'm ok...and I know that there are people and little babies that are in so much more pain....I pray for all the little babies and kids that are in pain or hurt, that God would comfort their little hearts and their pain...

I have crutches, because I can't pull on the skin...and it feels like shooting pain goes up my leg when I put pressure on it!
My sweet friend, Tessa picked me up, she even had to go through all the traffic causes by them shutting streets down because Obama was eating in Beverly Hills! She took me to Diddy Riese, an amazing place to choose your own "cookie" ice cream sandwich, I picked white chocolate macadamia nut cookies and espresso chip ice cream..... We had thai food, shared hot tea, and a Thai Tea (one of my fav drinks) at Mr. Noodle in Westwood.
....it is 2:49am...it's been a long day....
there's any almost eaten creme brulee cheesecake next me...
can't keep my eyes open...
I 'm so glad that nothing worse happened...and I pray for all the people that are going through much worse things than me...
huge love from me and my swollen leg.....your kandee

Melissa said...

Wow Kandee!!! You rock!! I mean I wouldn't be able to stay so strong during all that pain!!! I would have probably cried a lot ahah! But I guess that's what makes you so special! Take care sweetie and hope you heal fast! Lots of love xox

Tara said...

Thank you Lord for keeping Kandee safe!!! Praying for your safety and speedy recovery!

Have a good day! From, It's Classified said...

Big hugs to you girl - I'm so happy that the outcome wasn't worse but I feel so bad that you had to go through all of that. As I read your blog I was expecting to see a nasty cut but what you had was more a gash! The pain must have been outer limits - I hope you have good pain meds to take home too {{{hug}}}.

I must say - you are a trooper for being with it enough to take pix and post on your blog during the whole affair! LOL. Thank you for keeping your adoring readers in the loop - I think you deserve a medal of honor :-D

Priscilla said...

Wow Kandee you weren’t joking when you said “graphic”! I almost had to stop myself from reading on… I hope you have a fast recovery! Take care girl.

Lole said...

Oh my! Kandee!
I hope that everything is all right now. Well, I have to say, that I had a horrible accident two years ago and I nearly lost my arm or life. I spent the worst 3 months in hospital and then half and year on rehabs but I'm finally okay and I can even move my arm.
I just wanted to say, that I really really hope that you are feeling better. I wish I could send you some positive energy but still - I think that you are positive enough. You are so lovely and strong person. Sorry for possible mistakes.
Lots of love <3

What a horrible accident!! I pray that you heal quickly and you'll be back to yourself in no time :)Take good care of yourself!!

brandy.lynn.faler said...

dearest kandee,,
i'v been reading your blogs these past fews months && iv come to admire you very much. your one of the strongest willed persons i know, i look up to your courage and ability to overcome so much and even when its the worst of times you find the positive in everything. selfishness is a word that would NEVER be used to describe you. iv been thru some hard things these past weeks and whenever i feel like giving up i turn to you for inspiration i wish that one day i can be as amazing as you and maybe fly out to meet such a strong woman and wonderful mother as your self. you are my role model i hope to be half the woman you are one day. i have no one to talk to so i feel like when i read your blog thats where i turn to for comfort, i hope that you get to feeling better and that your wounds heal exceptionally fast. the scar will be a reminder of how brave and strong you are to over come the things in life that you have.-brandy.

Joyce said...

omg i would have been so freaked out!!! I hope it heals quickly!

r_kurz said...

I have always loved you Kandee, but the fact that you took pictures of your gross bloody leg makes me ADORE you. Haha! I've always been that sort of person too. I've even got pictures of myself holding my old liver after the transplant I had!

Anyway! Sending out positive vibes for a speedy recovery! You're a tough cookie, so I know you'll be fine, but still, it never hurts, right? And I hope you find a bit of comfort in knowing how much your legions of loyal followers care about you. :)

beyoutifulkaye said...

omg goodness kandee! u went thru a lot! im praying for your quick and healthy recovery. when i saw this on my facebook update i almost couldn't believe it! u seem like (im sure u rly are) a really upbeat and caring individual 24/7 that is here to make everyones lives better with your bubbly personality and i could just not believe this could happen to such a person! well...i supposed things happen for a reason? maybe something will come of this accident? those pictures really are intense..im a nursing student so i could handle it, im glad u had a great staff working with you. best wishes on your recovery kandee and god bless!
ps. im glad nothing worse happened to you too :]

Hollywood said...

Oh my goondess. Poor thing. but you're fine now thats all that matters. Good thing you had your prince to rescue you.
Also I should have heed your warnings... I was all "Oh how bad could it be...OH GOD!" lol
You're such a tough cookie. =]

carolina said...

OMG I am glad that you are OK now, I'll be praying for you, kisses

Heidi said...

WOW! That is really graphic! I wish you a super speedy recovery. So glad that it wasn't worse. Yay for boyfriend being on top of it!

dedee said...

OMG Kandee! This looks extremely painfull. Unbelieveble that you thought of taking pictures! It certainly knocked me out of my chair just now! I hope you heal well and quick!

xoxo DeDee

KPretty said...

oh my goodness! i am so sorry this happened to you. get well soon! =[

RadioChristine said...

oh kandee, I had tears in my eyes just looking at those pictures and knowing that you're hurting. I hope you feel better beautiful.

Cecilia Tirelli said...

Get well Kandee!! big bear hug!

Tiffany said...

Sister! I started crying when I saw your leg! It looks horrible- but you are so right, it could have been even worse if it landed anywhere else. I know God protected you, even in this terrible accident. I love you so much and we are praying for you and that no infection will follow.
That's it, you HAVE to wear a bubble wrap suit, helmet, bullet proof vest and maybe one of those chain mesh suits for people who swim with sharks. Ha ha ha!!!

Nallelyjim said...

Hope you feel better soon, and that you heal completely and speedy with less pain... will pray for a prompt and full recovery.

p.s.

diddy reese in westwood is the best!!! across the street, the habibis hookah bar has amazing middle eastern appetizers and food... if your ever in westwood again, and mr. noodle is soooo good.

Miss Vendella said...

oh my god kandee!!!!You are Wonder woman!!!
i am so happy you are ok now,and that there are people who can take care of you. Hopefully you will recover soon. Lots of kisses from Bulgaria!!!

Barbie said...

I'm def. praying for you and a quick recovery. That's insane and you should look into taking legal action against the hotel. Give you a penthouse suite is NOT enough for the damage to your leg and emotional damage. Think of your babies...they could have lost their mommy- please look into your legal right regarding this situation. You're to wonderful of a person to let something like this happen to you without fighting back.

brandi72 said...

That looks so painful!! I am so sorry that happened. I hope you are better soon! Be careful!

Nikki said...

OMG Those pictures.. I wouldve fallen apart, Im a real wuss! Will you have plastic surgery? I think it wouldnt matter at all, the scar would just be something else that makes you you! And you'd still be as beautiful as ever!
Im amazed you did so well, youre so brave, strong and just pretty amazing!

I hope everything heals, or at least eases soon :)

Natalia said...

you poor thing!!!! Be strong!!

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Fancy Pants said...

Holy Moly!!!

I'm not at all squeamish, but that was even hard for ME to look at! Poor you! *hugs*

I hope you have a speedy recovery!

Reese said...

When I saw those pictures all I can say is WOW!. I'm a nurse and seeing those pictures reminded me of my E.R days..and I was shocked to see the laceration, I can't believe how deep it went..I hope, pray and wish you a speedy recovery! I'm so happy that you're ok, which all above else matters most. Take it easy :) Love hugs and warm thoughts :)

Blonde Mafia said...

OMG KANDEE!!!

That looks BAD! I am SO glad your ok though. Wow you really are tough. I would have passed out in a flat second. Glad someone was with you. Praying you get better super soon. Take care.

KC

sarah:) said...

wow looks extremely painful:(
hope you get well soon :)

Daggers said...

OMG KANDEE!!!! You have all my condolences...Thank God you had a quick thinker with you, and good doctors too. What an awful thing for you to have to endure, here's hoping for a speedy and painless recovery, the world would be much less bright without your wonderful posts...don't let this get you down.

Yelena said...

Kandee, I am so sorry this happened to you. You are an angel and should never be hurt like this. Even after you cut your leg you still laughed and acted like a real angel :-). I hope you heal very soon!!!!

Dani said...

Oh My God Kandee!!!! That was a huge laceration! I could almost feel your pain girl!! Hope you get better really fast!
Take care and watch out for the glass walls in the future!
xoxo

Olivia said...

Thank Goodness you are all right! God bless you Kandee, I hope you have a very speedy recovery. I admire how full of love you are. It is a wonderful trait to possess. I love you and hope that everything will always turn out to the very best that it can for you and your family, even better than amazing =D
Love always,
Verity
p.s.: Do you know what caused the window to shatter?

Anwar said...

I had tears in my eyes reading this. You were so excited for Glaminar, and then this, you are so brave and strong. and I am very very happy that you are thankful after all that happened. I hope many good things happen to you after this bad thing. Take care of yourself and don't worry :)

j.mcgonagle said...

Omg Kandee!! You are such a trooper! I hope you feel better soon =)

Fancylooks said...

I can't believe you have the guts to put pictures of such a bad injury in your blog right after you had it, it is really impressive. You are so brave I just can't believe it. God bless you and bless your family. Please, keep on going strong! I can't either believe you have to go to work the next day.

Melissa said...

I'm praying for you!!!
Lots of love!!

OK said...

wow!!!!! I hope you end up being back to your normal fun kandee soon! glade you had nice doctors (sometimes they can be mean :( ) and super lucky to have such a great man by your side you deserve every bit of it!

You are like a little sunshine!
I wish you a speed recovery. Get well soon, love!

Sarah said...

So glad you are okay Kandee! How scary. I went through something similar to this a few years ago when I cut a finger off, and it was pretty traumatic. I'm glad you had Bobby there to help you!!! xoxo

Ari said...

Geez, Kandee!!
That looks so beyond painful. :(

Glad it wasn't worse.

Hope you have a speedy recovery! You're happiness is contagious :D

lori_moore said...

I hope the hotel could pay for some of your bills? Or was it not their fault, seems like their glass was not very strong though. Get well girl! I could never handle that cause I've never had any pain before.

Sylvia said...

OMGG much worse then i had imagineddd gahhh i hope your feeling better and hope your eg gets better soon sorry yur hurting <3

Zeivach said...

sorry my hope that you recover soon, god bless much.
The Bible says "all things work together for good this to those who love the Lord"

cocobenz said...

Oh Kandee girl,

you're handling this well....sending soft hugs, prayers, and warm cookies your way =) I hope that the recovery goes well, yikes that was a huge/scary cut! :( God bless you & comfort you and all the others that are going through such physical pain!

namispaz said...

Oh man! I'm pregnant and still looked at the pics without puking! Wow I'm so sorry that happened to you Kandee! But it is a good thing that you were fortunate enough that it completely missed a major artery. Hope you feel better!

Anyways girlie, keep your chin up, you are so brave! We will all be praying for you!
Many hugs from the Canadians!

I'll pray for you hun.

Laura said...

OMG!!!! Thats insane!!! I'm glad you didn't loose your leg lady. Get better soon. My stomach is turning looking at the pics of the muscles..eeiiishhh I would have passed out

katiedear said...

WOW! I KNOW how that feels, Ive had a simalar cut, your going to scar hunny Im so sorry. If you dont like scars thouogh once its almost healed start putting scar cream for zits on it and it will make it less noticeable. I hope your drugged silly right now so you dont have to worry about all the pain :(

glitterbunny89 said...

AHH!! I had no idea that it would be that bad. I really wasn't prepared to see the pictures! Hahah

I am so happy that you are alright though! We love you Kandee and I hope it heals as fast as possible. I hope it won't be too troublesome at the Glaminars as well. Much love <3

Len said...

Kandee i hope you recover very soon!!!!!

Cirien Phoenix said...

This proves you're not just a pretty face, but a strong woman as well. Stay healthy and keep your wound clean, Miss Kandee! :)

FitterTwit said...

Ok... you know... I read the warning.... BOTH of them in fact, but yet I was compelled to continue looking. OH MY FREAKING GOD IN HEAVEN... how did a vertical wall door or window slice your leg in half horizontally??? I've gotta know... that is the worst thing I've ever seen. Thank God it was only your leg... I mean it could have been so much worse. Your leg muscles are pretty tough and it went to the bone... Ok, I'm gonna just stop now. Feel better. DANG!

Boo-Boo Ninja said...

I'm glad you're okay!
Stay strong -- in body and in spirit. I'll be praying for your recovery.

p.s. I don't mean to be "the weirdo poster" but I must say: your photos are awesome! :P

LissaMarie said...

Kandee, that post filled my eyes with tears. It's interesting how I don't even know you and have never met you but seeing that happen to someone as wonderful and full of joy like you makes me so sad. I really hope you heal up fast and take it easy on your leg. Thank goodness Bobby was there with you, I can't imagine what would have happened if he weren't. You are so strong, girl! Keep up that strength through your healing. Sending my thoughts and prayers with you during this tough time! Much love!

Sammie said...

Oh my goodness! I'm in complete shock! This is just insane. You truly are strong, and I'm praying you have a quick recovery. Get well soon!

senior!182010 said...

ouch! good thing your boyfriend Bobby was there to help you!! i'm glad your okay!
get well soon!
love crystal :]

MissHotPants said...

Oh my goodness! That glass really did some damage! Looks very painfull - and in some bizarre way sort of cool! Glad that the leg and the full use of it is all intact, and all the best wishes for a speedy recovery!

mackenzie said...

Oh My Gosh!! That's absolutely horrible! I hope you feel better and are able to use it soon! You are sooo fortunate that Bobby was there with you or it could've turned out a lot worse!

Maida said...

Wow! That is intense! I'm glad you are A-Ok, despite the cuts and stitches. I wish you well!

t-richard2 said...

Curious, how did the glass window/wall thingy break? Best wishes to a quick recovery :) <3

Tina said...

Wow..thank God your alive..! I can imagine what pain you went through if you said it's more painful than having 3 kids.

Autumn said...

Wow That is awful! You were in a hotel when it happened? How did the glass even break?

Rosa said...

Wow! I'm glad you're okay! Those pictures are amazing--and scary as heck.

Sabrina said...

Oh my! your so brave im so glad your ok!!! i hope you have a swift recovery

Loads of Love and Hugs

Daria said...

you're a remarkable person. I don't know many individuals who would brave it out you did. You're inspiring because there are so many people who would never compare themselves to those less fortunate, and even without doing so. You should understand that with you being in a good place in your life right now, it makes you even more amazing just because you toughened up so much when the moment to freak-out came forth.
I wish you all the best.
Get well very soon, you deserve to.

Oh my word, that cut is intense! I'm so glad to hear you're okay! I'm not sure what I would do if that happened to me. I would probably just stare at my leg in shock, haha. Thank the Lord it wasn't worse. I hope the pain gets better and you recover super fast! Sending you lots of love and hugs! xoxox

Becka said...

That's crazy that it would cut so deep and serious just from bumping into it. Glad you're okay.

Catherine said...

i'm going to be honest and say i didn't honestly think it would be this bad... but holy craperooney that's a big gash! makes me feel like a complete wimp moaning about cutting my finger to the bone on a can of tuna the other day.

Hope it heals quickly, stick with the meds, too! you really do not want it to get infected. Best wishes on the recovery, and i do hope you get some sort of compensation for this

FaithHopeLove said...

Oh Kandee, so sorry to hear this, wow, someone was watching over you - your so lucky to have your awesome boyfriend, family and Dr's there for you. Im glad you were not more seriously hurt. On antoher note, so happy to hear about the success of your Glamanairs, yipee, i wish I could have met you that day too, I have always wanted to go to San D. You have a great attitude and that gets you through your life so well no matter what kandee, god bless

lexie said...

oh my gosh i hope you feel better! your so amazing and inspiring, ill be praying for you!!

Jeanine Faith said...

Kandee, I'm praying for a quick recovery and no infections throughout the healing process. The pictures reminded me of my mom's accident, long story but her rt leg got pinned under her own car tire! Took the fleshy part, of inner right knee out. I was holding her hand the entire time...until they uncovered the wound...then I felt like fainting, just like how your boyfriend held yours. =) God protected you that day, like He did with my mom.

20-Questions said...

Good heavens!! Well that's great to hear you're ok. A bit of a scar is always worth keeping a limb :) Good on you though for keeping tough, although I totally would have been taking pictures too ha ha.

DaShannon said...

i hope your recovery is smooth and will keep you in prayers... thanks for sharing, i know it isn't the easiest to show the stress and not so happy day...

Victoria said...

OMG Kandee - I am so sorry this happened to you and yes lucky you didn't get your leg cut off - hang in there and rest!!!! we need you back with both legs.

judy said...

OMG I can't believe it!!! I was cringing in pain just from looking at those pictures... you are so so strong I think I would have bawled like a baby and demanded pain-killers!

Praying for your fast recovery! xoxo

Jemsmom said...

Holy smoke! Thank goodness it wasn't worse. Not that it isn't bad enough. I thought I would be all brave and check out the pictures. Ugh!!! Bless your heart! May you have quick healing!

ashlyanddustin said...

Oh my goodness, I am shocked that you blogged about this already! I am so happy to hear that a giant gash in your leg doesn't even put a damper on your sunny personality. I wish you a swift and painless (as possible) recovery. Lots of love!

rubyred12 said...

fELiCiA♫™ said...

Awwww, thats so horrible. Your so strong and amazing! You seemed to have handled it so well, I don't think I could have done that.
I'm glad your doing better! :)

livi said...

that is horrible the cuts towards the end of the post almost lookd fake they were so bad :( I find it so incredable that you still think of others in so much pain hope ya feel better kandee

mnmbrown said...

Oh my gosh. Kandee! That's awful. Hang in there. I hope they gave you awesome meds. I can't believe you have to work after. Eeeek! I am praying for you girl! Lots of love your way!

Julie said...

OH MY GOD KANDEE! so glad you're okay. those images are unbelievable.. stay strong! <3

SweetChicStyle said...

Kandee, OMG girlie my prayers are with you that you have a fast and speedy recovery. May God heal your leg to full restoration and heal the scar so you won't need plastic surgery. You'd be surprised at how amazing the Lord is. I almost cut my whole foot off, the doctor's told me I'd need plastic surgery to hide scars but the Lord healed it with barely a scratch remaining where the huge laceration to the bone once was. My thoughts and prayers are with you God bless you poor thing!! Thank God you have your man there to help you with everything and getting back home. If anyone can make it thru this, it'd be you!

angel_bangel_7 said...

you are reallly strong i dont think i could have ever been able to deal with this pain. im so sorry that this happened i hope you get better really soon and have a quick and safe recovery

debbie38381 said...

Thank God your boyfriend was there, an EMT I bet he saved you from bleeding to death. It's a wonder it didn't cut your leg off. I would have past out. Stay strong and take it easy you will need rest and protein for good healing. I just had a hysterectomy and was told that would speed up recovery, 2 weeks and I was feeling great. You are in my prayers. God bless you.

Beck said...

Awwwwww, poor you!! xxoo
I think I should have closed the window when you warned us :/

play said...

It looked so bad! And you still could pray for others. You are such a wonderful person!

MarkeeCoco said...

Ouch, I had a similar experience when I was younger & walked through a glass wall at a cafe. I'm glad you're doing fine though and hopefully they will replace that glass with safer glass that will shatter into smaller, safer pieces.

melissa said...

omg....i was looking up how to care for the steam burn on my leg, when i decided to take a break and read ur blog....omg ur leg is soooo much worse than mine!!! hope u have a speeeedy recovery! (and ur bf sounds like he'll be a great care giver)

Jill said...

oh my gosh, hope you're ok!! stay strong and you are in our thoughts ms. kandee!!

leoniee said...

Jennifer said...

I am so sorry to hear about your accident. I hope you have a good recovery. :)

mannadonn said...

Hi Kandee, I've been following your blog for quite some time and have never commented. I thought I would comment this time to let you know that I'm so glad you are "okay" and that things weren't any worse. OMG! I'm so sorry this happened to you and I hope you heal quickly!

-k said...

Those pictures are absolutely gruesome! But I’m glad that everything is ok and that you aren’t permanently damaged. Feel better and get well soon!

Jesie said...

So sorry to hear that happen to you Kandee. You are in my prayers. I'm glad you're okay. Take care :)

Bridget said...

OH my goodness Kandee!!! So glad you are okay and it was taken care of!! You are very brave and strong. How did you even manage to get cut like that I don't understand?? Keep getting better. Huge hugs and well wishes.

cn said...

oh wow. i would have def passed out if that happened. i thought i could handle looking at stuff but wowserz, i think i went into a bit of shock from the pics.

You are a LOT STRONGER than so many of us, both in spirit & body. Take your time & rest, lots of supplements, & keep smilinG (the best medicine ever)

Miss♥Nikka said...

Kandee..that looks really bad. I hope you heal quick. You are so brave girl! Get better soon! XOXO

MsFashionista said...

Kenady said...

Dear Kandee,
I absoloutley love your style, and outlook on life. You have been inspiring me for more than two years! You are so charming and nice, everything about you is so welcoming. You are an inspiration to many people! Because of you I decided to try to inspire people too. I am a type one diabetic, I was diagnosed when I was 12. Im now 19 and trying my hardest to raise money for a cure. Taking 5 injections (or shots) a day is so hard, and the mental/physical pain that comes with this disease is so much harder. I was wondering if you would like to help.. I understand if you don't- youre so busy! One blog or one youtube video would really help! I am selling raffle tickets to win an ipod touch for $10 a ticket, and MAC brushes for $5 a ticket. It would be a true blessing if you could help me with this sell! I dont know many people so its not going very well. my blog is www.kenadyc.blogspot.com

Thanks so much girl! Love everything you do! I hope you heal fast, and will keep you in my prayers!

email: kenadycastillo@gmail.com

XOXO said...

Oh my gosh Kandee! I'm so sorry this happened to you! I'll keep you in my prayers. You are so brave, take it easy girl and heal quickly!

Wow, you are definitely a strong lady!
I got goosebumps from the pictures of your leg! Thank goodness it didn't hit your artery.

Sandra. J said...

Dear Kandee, ur the bravest Johnson I've ever seen. (Iám a Johnson myself hehe) I can't believe you kept a positive attitude through out the whole time. I'll pray for a fast healing for you chica. Stay Strong. Bobby is such a sweety.

Bluestar's Blog said...

Oh my goodness! I am so sorry you got hurt! I got tears in my eyes for your pain. You aresuch a trooper! If that happened to me you would have heard me a mile away. I am so glad that your boyfriend was there to help and comfort you. I am sending hugs and well wishes your way. I hope you get well fast. I am soo sorry you got hurt. So scary, but thank goodness you weren't cut on on the femoral artery. I really hope you get better soon, you are such a bright light.
Lots of love and best wishes to you and yours.

Tiahna said...

mascaragenocide said...

Holy crap! I can't believe that all happened. However, I'm glad you're okay, Kandee!! All of us love you and wish you well!

Melissa said...

EEEEKKK! you weren't exaggerating at all - those pics were graphic. But hope you are doing better now! God Bless

La Petite Sirène said...

did you say "so that's what it looks like inside?" that totally would have been something i would say to try to distract myself from what actually happened. Love you Kandee and i hope you heal up fast and well!

Sadaf said...

:(((((((

I'm so glad you are ok, i'm so so sorry :((((((
I'm praying for you sweets stay strong

Sarah said...

Oh Kandee, I'm so sorry you got hurt that bad! It must've been REALLY scary! But you're sooo strong and amazing and have such wonderful people taking care of you. You truly are amazing for being so positive even after something like this. I truly hope it heals smoothly and you'll be back to normal in no time!! :] Much love, Sarah.

Sophie said...

Wow! That looks.. I can't even explain.. I was not expecting those last few pictures hahaha.

I'm glad you're ok and I hope you get better very very soon!

SydneY3385 said...

Get a lawyer (they generally take personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis) and don't talk to anybody until then - stop posting about what happened at the time the accident occured and (although tempting as it may be) how your recovery is going.

hannah said...

I'm really glad you're okay :)

I will be praying for a speedy recovery.

nikki said...

OMG.... those pictures are scary ! i hope you feel better! Keep strong..

xx

Jairo said...

Kandee, you were not kidding about those images. I was engulfed with sadness because I don't want you to be in this situation. I don't even know you and vise-versa so I can only imagine how your family must feel right now. However, I'm sure that your strength, and positive attitude puts them at ease. I'm glad you work out because I truly believe that was a factor in the glass not penetrating though the whole leg (and of course God was watching over you) please keep us posted, and tell your wonderful boyfriend thank you for taking good care of you and to keep it up.

Lalita *]\/[ said...

omg!!! and i think you talked about those glass windows on facebook... mmm mm mmm, the thing is that you´re ok, so get well soon!!!
