Meet Nadine. Nadine is a friend. Nadine is a co-worker. Nadine is currently recovering from a broken neck which has left her in a Halo—you know, that cage looking thing with the screws and all. Apparently she has the designer Gucci model which comes in "black steel".
Nadine has started a blog where she tells all about the experience she is going through. She's an amazing person and writer—you should do yourself a favor and take some time out of your weekend to give it a read. You'll be glued to your screen as Nadine vividly describes her account from the accident to the emergency room to "Dr. McDreamy". Here's a sample:
"There I am, with one foot on the ladder and one foot on the sill. You’d think I would stop while I’m ahead, but I am pretty nimble, so I take my other foot off the ladder and try bringing it to the windowsill as well. At this point, I have to arch my back to balance myself on the windowsill, flush against the wall. This doesn’t go so well. In an instant, I start to wobble and fall backwards. It is a crazy sensation. I’ve lost my balance many times in the past, but have always been able to regain it and recover. Not this time, Chico. I am completely out of control."
You'll have to visit the blog to see the rest of the story. Luckily, Nadine didn't end up in a worse situation. All of us here at the office are extremely thankful for this as I am sure her family is also. So, check out her riveting story and amazing writing. And leave a comment. I'm sure you'd appreciate if someone did that for you. :)
