    Wow Jackie, this is incredible. Both rods broken in that car accident.

    I hope you feel better soon.

    Yes it is amazing. To be in the type of accident that I was ,My car was thrown off the road head on into a brick house, break the cervical and T1 in the accident, have a major hematoma in the spinal cord, go thru emergency surgery within hours of the accident and only the nerve to my right hand is slightly weaker, is a God given miricale.
    Then within a few weeks break the rod to the cervical and go through another emergency surgery as soon as the surgeon saw the xray, and only have a slight weakness in my right hand is another miracle.
    Of course I don't have a car and can't drive anyway because of the brace is making things a little hard but o well.
    I guess Christmas came early for me.
