swimmer paralyzed in accident where spine was severed

olympic gold medalist amy dyken has become paralyzed in a car accident where as her legs are numb and cant move them. i believe she won 3 gold medals in swimming. what a shame for this to happen to a young athletic woman. i believe it was a all terrain vehicle that flipped but i could be wrong. i do not know the prognosis but if the spine was severed it does not look good. pray for her.
I have 4 fusions from L5-3, the latest last May '12 where they fixed my disc that broke.They went through my side this time. I take 40 mg of oxycontin 4x a day and 4 fenatyl lollipops 300 micro gms 4x a day.


  • I saw this about 2 hours ago, such a terrible tragedy.It's awful I feel so very sad this has happened to her... Healing prayers are being said.

    Hugs and Prayers,
