Hi again, everyone
I'm responding to some PM's I received since I posted on Sunday to let Nemeses' friends know what happened to her Saturday. First off, thank you for those PM's and making me feel welcomed here. I can see now why my friend loves being a part of your community, you are a very caring and friendly group here.
Second, I was asked to post an update when I could, so that's my purpose here today. She is still in the hospital recovering from the injuries she received, as well as the knee surgery. Although she is in a great deal of pain, she is recovering well and is hoping to go home by the end of the week. Last night when my wife was visiting her in the hospital, there was a group of nurses gathered in her room watching a show on tv, I believe it was the star's dancing show. My wife said she insisted they wait until the show was over before giving her the pain medicine that she needed.
One bit of news rather brightened the day of both Dawn (aka Nemeses) and her husband, as well as the rest of us who care about her, and that's that the drunk driver who hit their vehicle was caught on Sunday night. Apparently one of the other restaurant patrons who witnessed the accident was able to get the license plate number for the police, as well as a quickly snapped picture from a camera phone. The driver was arrested at his home the next day and admitted to the hit-and-run. We understand he had 9 DUI convictions on his record in the past 4 years. I'm not sure what will happen in the process with him now, though he's been arrested, but hopefully he'll get some jail time that he obviously deserves.
My wife and I will be going to visit Dawn/Nemeses in the hospital tonight, and one of those PM's I received about her here suggested I could let her know about all the good wishes and prayers sent her way by her friends here. I thought was was a wonderful idea, so I thought I'd stop by here again before we go there tonight and just print them out and take them to her. I'm sure it will brighten her spirits to read them. I read some of your wishes to her yesterday when I stopped by here, as well as the notes and wishes sent to her via my PM box, and it was gratifying to know people care about her. I wasn't certain if I should have posted what happened to her here, but I'm very glad I did, now.
So I will print out all the PM's sent to me and meant for her, as well as those posts I can find that were sending good wishes and prayers to her. One problem I have, however, and it's quite embarassing since I still don't know my way around here very well, is that I can't find where I put my post on Sunday letting people know what happened to Nemeses. I know that's where I read so many of your kind posts to her, but today there are about 30+ pages of unread posts since my last visit. Perhaps I'm just missing them, or don't understand how to use the Search feature correctly. Does anyone know which topic I posted that under so that I can find your posts to her and print them out later today?
