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

Stevie Marino said...

i admire you for being so brave!

Maria said...

Oh my God, Kandee! That looks so painful! But I'm very glad it didn't get to the femoral artery or anything that bad.

I love that even after what has happened, you're still the same happy and positive Kandee we all know and love.

I'm sending happy and healing through your way! xoxoxo

tinedangganda said...

When I saw the picture you posted on facebook, i was like is this her or someone else...

But I'm glad you're ok... I was really worried about you... I showed my hubby the picture of your leg and then I shown him your face, and he was like, she's a girl?

hope your leg heals quickly..

thank you for praying for the others who suffers pain too...

you're just so kind...

ali.probert said...

Carolyn said...

OWWW!!! That looks awful! I'm glad you're ok--you are such a strong warrior Kandee! I hope it heals as fast & as painless as possible. God Bless xoxo

chamkurogi said...

OMG! You are soooo brave!I am so sorry for what happened to you, I hope your leg heals safely.

Susan said...

OMG Kandee!!! You are SO LUCKY that you didn't do more damage than that. Its amazing what adrenaline can do to a body. It can make us faster and feel less pain at times when it just doesn't seem possible to be able to do those things. I'm so happy you're okay (relatively). Stay off that leg sister! And let that cute boyfriend of yours nurse you back to good health. Again, I'm so glad you're okay. Someone was watching over you for sure!!!!

Ramona said...

When I saw your post on Facebook - I coulnd't picture how hard ahd you cut your leg, but when I also read that "I almost had my leg cut off today" I have that I really was in shock and I quickly turned to your blog to see if you had posted something. I have never seen such pictures of a wooned before; I am still in complete terror of what had happened to you. I can't believe that I saw pictures of someone I "know"; I mean I watch your vids on YT all the time and it's really terrible that has happened to you, 'cause really your the best.
I really want to wish you from the bottom of my heart that your leg heals quicly and that you stop feeling any excruciating pain.
My heart goes out to you. Take care!

Gittsy said...

oh my gosh!! you're such a strong woman, I am so glad you're ok!! I go to school there & will be there all week.. let me know if there's anything I can do or help you with! ruthieaviles[at]gmail[dot]com

get well soon <3

BabyGurrl said...

You are an amazing person Kandee!! It's incredible that you did it without pain medicine! And of course you'll think about others when you're hurt, it's okay to just think about yourself in those times girlie ;)
Hope it all goes well, and you feel better soon!!! xx

Kristina said...

OH MY GOSH!!!! KANDEE!!!!! That is nuts!!!! I am so glad they could fix your leg and you can walk. My friend had a similar thing happen to his arm and his motor skills are very different now. It's so lucky you can move all your toes and everything will be good!! AMAZING!! You are so positive and strong!! An inspiration to us all, we are all thinking and praying for a speedy recovery and no pain!!! You deserve all good things in the world!!! We love you, Kandee!!!

I almost started crying when you talked about the others in the world that are in worse pain - you're an amazing person Kandee.

Gayle said...

Whoa! I'm confused on how the glass fell. Did you trip and fall into the glass with a decent amount of force...or was it some crazy fluke...was the glass damaged or not set correctly & was an accident waiting to happen?

Jessica said...

selenity_luz said...

lollylight said...

OMG Kandee, you are even more of an inspiration than i had previously felt - you are so positive and so willing to look at the bright side of things, just know that even all the way on the other side of the world in New Zealand you have a friend who thinks the world of you!!!

maria said...

Laura said...

Wow, it HURTS to look at the pictures. I get chills. I can't even imagine how much it actually does hurt. You're amazing, having gone through that and still keeping your cheerful disposition and optimism. You are one of a kind, Kandee!

I'm so glad it wasn't worse and I wish you a speedy recovery! You have a lot of love being sent your way :)

Oh my god kandee... I can't believe it! Poor thing. Take care! Lots of love

priyanka said...

Oh my!! it looks really bad. Im sure you will get well soon, you have the love and blessings of so many people who love you and your optimism. God gives pain only to his stronger children, who can cope up with the pain while keeping their head high and their faith in God intact. So be happy, you are one of the Gods strongest children.

I know how the pain feels i just underwent three leg surgeries, and im on bed from last 13 mnths. But mine was a planned cut and yours wasnt, so i can imagine how it must have felt.

All my love and blessings :)

priyanka said...

Hehe one more thing you have a nike sign on your leg now... lol

Oh my gosh!

Judith said...

I cut my knee open on broken glass, and if i hadn't stepped back before i turned around i would've lost half my leg! So i know what you're going through. My gash did not look nearly as impressive as yours. Funny because when i was in E.R i was talking bout eating a caramel sundae and laughing! Hope all is well and God Bless you Kandee. You make my days brighter!

BittersweetKindaNew said...

OMG is pretty much all I can say to that. How scary!!! Thank god you are brave! Jeeeeeeez, that is horrific. xx

FemFort said...

That is a really bad cut. REALLY BAD! But you're so positive and strong. And it's so great that you have Bobby by your side. But I'm still really sad that this happened to you. I will keep you in my prayers.

ashley said...

angelic_tourniquet said...

Hey Kandee!
Hope you have a speedy and full recovery! Just wanted to say how awesome it is that even though you were going through something really awful, you were still thinking of everyone else who may be worse off than you. I think that's really amazing.
Feel better!
Kari

Keep strong.

Kandee,

You are one strong cookie! I wish you a speedy recovery and am glad you are doing better. I'm sure you will do something creative and funky with your bandages (like zebra hot pink or something, lol). God Bless!

Tory Ammiano's Portfolio said...

the first picture you posted on facebook didnt do it justice.. I didn't realize just how bad it was until I saw the actual wound! oh kandee im so sorry that happened to you.. as always stay positive! keep making videos, your fans love you very much!

lanapt said...

Oh My god Kandee, hope you are feeling better .. im praying for you .. lots of love .. kisses

kateypie35 said...

HOLY BANANAS lady!! I am kind of sorry I kept reading, but I couldn't help myself! *gag* I can't believe how bad that looks, but it sounds like everything will turn out fine...yay! And, you know its sexy to have scars - adds character and makes for good stories. You should tell people you got in a biker brawl, and you won of course. Or wait, I know - tell people you wrangled a Great White off the coast of Bora Bora...yea, yea...that's it!!
xooxoxoxoxox
relax and be well, and eat lots of ice cream...very therapeutic!
xxooxxoox

Reba said...

Kandee, I am so sorry this happened to you, but darlin', you handled it like a trooper! I hope the pain isn't too bad and that it doesn't scar too terribly, but even if you have a scar, you will always be a beautiful girl! I've been watching your YouTube videos for about a year now... I just want to say how much I enjoy them. I found you one day when I wanted to cut up a t-shirt and had no clue how to do it. I googled it and your video came up. I cut my t-shirt successfully, then did another, and now all my friends want me to cut shirts for them! God bless you, hon, and I hope you get better soon!

Christiane said...

Dear Kandee, tank god Bobby was there and knew what to do! You'll need a lot of rest for your leg to heal, please don't go working for a while. I know you need money for your precious little one, but they also need a healty mommy.
Take good care of yourself...
your Élyse

Holy Cow, that looks serious. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

OMG!!
that looks so painful. i can even feel the pain just by looking at the photos...i hope you get well soon. Take your medicine on time ya.

DaniB001 said...

Wow, this looks really bad. I'm glad for you that nothing worse happened that day. I hope you'll recover very soon. The bigger the scar the tougher the hero :)

Bebe said...

YOU ARE AMAZING KANDEE!!! I do not know how I would handle something like that. I had a 9 lb 1 oz baby naturally, he tore his way into this world. And hasn't stopped the destruction since. (LOL) But at least my hardwork and pain lead to something great. I pray that this pain leads you to something great. Maybe after physical therapy you'll learn a new sport or make a new friend. =) Good Luck Kandee.

jess said...

That's crazy! And of course you were talking about desserts - that just sounds so you. I wish you a fast recovery!!

RAE said...

Oh Kandee...I am so sorry that happened to you! That is crazy! Prayers are with you for a swift recovery and that you will have as little pain as possible. Can't say enough how bad I feel for ya!

Janner said...

OMG!!!!!!!! That looks Freaking AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!! You are amazing for not losing it... I would have lost my mind.

Crystal Gan said...

Oh my.. my jaw opened wide when I saw the huge cut in ur leg! I didn't thought it was that serious. You're truly one tough woman and I admire you for that. I pray that you get well soon Kandee! And I pray for miraculous healing for your wound, that hopefully you will not need plastic surgery for it to look normal again. =) GET WELL SOON!

kristie alexis said...

You are a strong woman, best of luck in your recovery.

Heather said...

We don't realize how strong we are until we go through something like this. My mom always thought of me as her "weakest" child until she saw me fight cancer AND WIN. She calls me her hero now. God is good! I'll be praying for healing for you Kandee, that sure does look painful. Be careful and take care of yourself.

Michelle Ortiz said...

Wow, thanks for the update and the pics. Another test for you Kandee and i am sure it will make you stronger. Its lovely to see that you are thinking of others at this time, it is very sad when a child has to go through pain. Heal quickly and our wishes are with you. x

xo, Kate @keeping up w/the Moreland's said...

oh my gosh!! That is insane! I am so glad that you are ok!!! prayers are being sent your way for a quick recovery!!! xo

Jinni said...

Oh, goodness. I have such a weak stomach when it comes to that stuff, I literally wanted to read everything and NOT see pictures..so I held my hand up over the pictures and squirmed when I saw them on accident.

You're incredibly strong, lady. Strong and blessed to have had your love with you, too. God was really looking out for you that day!! <3

Hope you have a speedy recovery and heal without any complications!

Michelle said...

Kandee, I have no idea how you stayed so strong throughout that entire thing. You really are an amazing person and you are so strong. It is just a huge relief to hear that you are recovering in your room from such a traumatic thing.

I love you so much Kandee and I'm praying for you. I'm also thinking you should take a day off from work. You definitely deserve it and I'm more than 100% positive that they would understand.

Get well soon Kandee <3

Such a shame it happened now, when you were so happy with the glaminar and everything.. Praying for you! Hope it's a fast healer! xoxo

Kim said...

God Bless You Dear One....Praying for a complete, quick, and miraculous recovery for you.......

You are so strong, Kandee! I will pray for a speedy recovery. I love how you share the real things that happen in your life! The good, the bad and the ugly. You are such an inspiration. I'm so glad your boyfriend was there to help you. Let the hotel pay for your hospital bills and plastic surgery :)

Sirenazul said...

I must hurt really a lot but it could have been much worst. Take care and you'll see how you will get better in one month. Be very strict with the medication and all the cares. The worst rist now is infection but if you don't get it, everything will be fine.

Cat V. said...

That's gruesome! Stay strong sweetie! <333

Alice no País da Desbunda said...

Huge kiss from a big fan of you, :*

Ashley R. D. said...

You're such a damn trooper Kandee!
I hope you heal completely.
You poor thing *HUG*

Franka said...

oh my, this looks really bad! My thoughts are with you. Hope it recovers fast! (I can´t believe you were out eating ice cream that day!) The best wishes to you and your family

Elisabeth said...

Kandee, I love you as my sister through Christ. I am praying for the pain to ease and the healing to hasten. I am so sorry that you've gone through this. I am so proud of you though, you won't let anything get you down. You are so strong! and I admire that very much. Keep your head up girl! Love, Elisabeth. :]

natalie75 said...

Oh Kandee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a freak accident, I am so sorry to hear..... uhhh and see what happened to your leg. (yes, I couldn't help but to continue on to the pictures) Unbelievable! Please don't push yourself too hard, get some rest and give your leg time to heal........ I will keep you in my prayers.

Nora said...

I'm very sorry about what happened.. i wish no ill or evil ever comes your way! but i'm glad you are this strong! it definitely inspires a lot of us who can't deal well with pain or suck incidents..
in my culture.. they would call this being struck by an evil eye..
and there's a lot of ways to protect yourself from that. May God bless you and always protect you and your family.
Much love Kandee xoxo

Anabella said...

You're such a brave woman. You've been such an inspiration for me since I discovered your videos on youtube. Keep on going iii (independent, inspirational, incredible) grl!

Tanya said...

HOLY CRAP KANDEE!

I say again - HOLY CRAP KANDEE!

Please promise us that you'll take it easy and stay off your feet until you get all healed up! That injury is worse than you would have with a lot of surgeries! I love watching medical shows and have no problem with graphic stuff, but I was not prepared for how severe that injury was.

Thank God that Bobby was there to be your guardian angel and stop the initial bleeding. I'd say that he's a keeper.

kelliegonzo said...

Jessica said...

I am so happy to see that you will be ok. But you completely astonish me I mean here you have had this horrible thing happy but you still have the time to say there is worse out there and you pray for them. I give you so much credit girl and you are a role model for everyone on your courage and positive outlook on life!!

Erin said...

I am so happy you are...ok(ish). I am so happy it wasn't any worst then it is. I can't imagine the pain though. You seem to be really strong, I would have been out of it. I hope you heal quick with little to no scarring. It looks like a really good closer from the pictures. You will have to post pictures as it heals.

Get well soon, heal fast and so glad you're ok and nothing worse happened. Glad your boyfriend was with you or it coulda been alot worse if you were in the room alone.

Oh My Goodness Kandee! I'm so glad that Bobby was there and knew what to do and that you got the best care at UCLA too. You are a brave woman and so deserved your custom cookie ice cream sandwich.

Best of luck healing, hope you have a speedy recovery! Someday you will have a cool story to tell about your badass scar. Also.....get the hotel to pay for everything!!!! :) Sending you healing thoughts.

Diane said...

Holy crap Kandee, that was quite a gash!
Looks like they did a great job stitching you up.
Don't forget to take ALL those antibiotics...you do NOT want to get that infected. (I'm an old nursee!)
Take care...

love, Frances

Yo Mera said...

You're so brave, it happened the same thing to me when I was 5 years old, only it was in almost the entire body. My accident happened in a hotel because of a sliding door. I hope you get better soon, take care.

Janeth said...

Oh Kandee, this looks like right out of a movie. I'm glad that it wasn't even more serious than it is. I can't believe how strong you are taking pictures and chatting it up with the doctor... well actually I can haha.. you're like SuperWoman! Get better soon! I'll keep you and your pretty leg in my prayers :)

Gardener-Sinya said...

Oh my goodness!

Dear kandee,

You are so brave, you know.
I don't even dare to look at your severe wounds' pictures closely.
I feel weak myself when I see wounds or blood, but I have already donated blood for 26 times, amazing!

Thanks God, you had your kind boyfriend who knows how to give you first-aid treatment when the accident happened.

My God bless you and bring you health, my friend.

Take good care of yourself!!

Caryn said...

OMG aren't you glad your legs were shaved?? Praying for a quick recovery and let someone pamper you for a change!
