Get Well Soon

This is a card I made today for my (sort of) stepsister, Katy, who is in the hospital after a serious ATV accident on Sunday.

Update on Katy's condition: She was taken off of life support and oxygen today and is breathing on her own. She still can't eat, and is being fed and hydrated with an IV. She does recognize everyone who has visited so far and REALLY wants to get out of her wrist braces and pull her IV out lol. She's a fighter that one. She even kicked four visitors out today (including me). She said "Go Away." simply like that. She's got a lot of healing ahead of her, and they expect she will be in the hospital for about 3 weeks, but she should be okay. Her injuries, that I know of, are three skull fractures, a number of broken facial bones (all I was told is many), and an ear injury that they are  unsure as to the extent of damage, and a little bit of road rash on her backside. Amazingly, no road rash on her face. Odd because her head is where most of the damage is. Her face and head are very swollen, and her right ear seems to be in the "wrong" place. But, time will tell if she will need surgery or not. They are hoping that once the swelling goes down her ear will right itself. And, if the bones don't move, she won't need surgery on those either. Still keeping her in my prayers.
