    I'm not a medical person want soever but when you think about it. The nerves that would have signaling the brain where probably destroyed. And other nerves that were working were at a location where there was no pain. I guess.

    If you want to know what most likely happened to your hand. Hospitals send all of their bio hazard material off to a place that incinerates all of their used needles, bloody gauze, gloves, and peaces removed during surgery.

I can make a couple bands to go around your wrist or where your wrist is tagged as a wedding ring love you anyway you're very special woman never forget that and you're very beautiful have a good day now sweetheart

  • Reply Burt W October 18, 2019 at 10:28 pm

    Hey Kristie, You are definitely an inspiration to so many of us. I love you for everything you do and for spreading so much positive energy around. I want to ask a couple things. Have you considered writing a book about your life and your accident? It seems like the timing would be perfect for that. Do you have any days to where your depressed about your loss and you just break down and cry? You seem so positive and upbeat all the time witch is awesome. But you must have some bad days, right? Last question. Are you in a relationship of any sort? Your so beautiful and sweet I can't believe your still single. But, if that's something you keep private that's cool. ๐Ÿ˜Ž. Take care Kristie, โค love ya!

    I totally get everything you just said! You don't take one minute for granted. You appreciate everyday. You're very conscious of everything. Even bad days are different.
    I didn't lose a limb, but I lost my mom in 2016. It was deeply life changing and sad, but I don't think of life the same way. I changed for the better and I'm a much better person than the person my mom ever knew. Anyway, I think your story is great.
    Rick Allen from Def Leppard is constantly being asked about his car accident that took his left arm in 1984. So you may have to get used to answering these questions, or just always keep sending to people to those videos where you explain what happened. Your story and your life is inspiring! Keep up the good work! Many blessings to you and your family โค

  • Reply ubermom October 19, 2019 at 1:24 pm

    You clearly think that "Did you keep your hand?" is a bizarre question, even though it's a common question. That makes me wonder if there are different personality types when it comes to body part loss. Just like some people are introverts and some are extraverts, there might be some for whom, "But it's part of me!" is strong. I'm definitely in the former, and it seems to be genetic somehow because my family all seem to be that way. My mom insisted on keeping her gallstones when they were removed. When I had a tooth pulled I pleaded with the dentist until he gave it to me. And nobody in the family considers that odd at all. It's part of you and you get to keep it. (My mom put the gallstones in one of those little plastic bubbles that toys dispense in when they're in those little bubble-headed vending machines. I put my tooth in an envelope with my dental molds and the documentation of my dental implant.) If I lost a limb I'd want to keep it because though it was detached it would still be part of me. I'd probably just have it medically preserved and it would end up in a box in the attic, but it would still be mine and I'd want it. But it seems like there are other people for whom, "Well, it's not part of me any more so why would I want it? " And that seems to be your personality.
