ive been doing alright...since i started going back to school Monday ive had lots of pressure in behind my eye and nose bleeds but other then that im doing great!!! tonight i will be heading to morgantown to be there in the morning at 6 for surgery :/ its here already...i hope it goes well and would REALLY appreciate if people would keep me in their prayers through this all. again i am so blessed to have the people in my life that i do. i dont know what id do without them or God. i can now finally sit through a softball game and watch it so i may work my way back into softball but im not rushing it at all..we will see what happens next year and whether my surgery goes good or not. but to all you ladies playing have fun and be safe!!!!! face masks for pitchers may not be "pretty" or comfortable but they would help!!!! believe me. well i hope everyone has a good rest of the week and i will post probably when i can after my surgery to keep people posted.

these last few days have been pretty good. iv'e saw a lot of family and friends that have all but just made my day! i still get really tired but the swelling is going down which is good that i heal easy..only thing is all they're gonna do is cut it right back open again and then back to square one but it will get better from there hopefully. still don't know if i will ever return on the field again as of now that's a real big negative but hopefully it will change...time changes and heals everything. so we will see. i also want to thank everyone who has been there for me i can not thank them enough!!!!!!!!! oh and for those who were wandering i come back to school monday and will be there until wednesday but then i will be out the rest of the week because of my surgery. i can't wait to get back to school and see everyones smiling little faces :)

the part i hate the most is sleeping all day and not having anyone to talk to during the night like right now. lol. i guess i better put on here how i am doing...i am doing alright just resting as much as possible and loving the feeling of having visitors. it truely does help and eases my mind. i just can not wait to see what God has in store for me in my future i am so blessed to have the loving family and friends that i do and i couldn't ask for better! i know many people are out there and have it a lot worse that's the way i have to think when i get down and out. if anyone wants to visit me just let me know :)
okay i am doing this to clear up any questions or rumors people have and to keep people informed....last Saturday i was playing softball at the early bird tournaments in Covington Va. i was pitching and was hit by a line drive ball on my face above my left brow. i was then taken by ambulance to Alleghany Hospital. i then had a CT and was shipped off by ambulance to UVA and spent hours into the night there to get yet another CT and to be told that i have two fractures..one being a frontal sinus cavity fracture and the other being an orbital fracture by the sinus cavity. i was then stitched up with 10 stitches and talked to about surgery....

So everyone asks can you see did it affect your vision? no i have perfect vision just like i had before it happend..also people ask does it hurt? no because it damaged a major nerve and i have no feeling from bottom of eye socket to 3 inches in my hair line on left side. which right now is a blessing in disguise. All i really can say is it couldve been a lot worse.
