I have never met a more determined person than Suzy Moody. That probably explains why she is so successful in most everything she sets her mind too! Her injury was very serious because she lost a lot of blood when she hit her stomach on the handlebars but held on until the rescue people could get her to the hospital. We had a team doctor who met them at the hospital and made sure that all the equipment and proceedures were up to date. (Which they were). After only 1 and a half days in ICU Suzy was moved to another room where she just had to wait as they drained her stomach. I visited her each day and she was never concerned about herself but that Mandi and I had made it. She was always cheering for us. It was only after a few days that she was sitting up and looking really good. She made the doctor take her off the Morphine and the IV. The problem was that they wanted her to stay 10 days and she wanted to come home. Healing is always easier at home. However, the doctor said no so Suzy just had to take matters into her own hands and well let's say break out. Daryl pushed her to the sun room where the nurses thought she was just going to get some sun. (She said they were even giving her medication on the way down) Once the nurses left she hoped in the car and they headed for the airport. She probably should have just stayed but I don't blame her for wanting to get home. She did check herself into the hospital here in the states and will just relax until her body completely heels. I forgot her address again today but I will try to post it tomorrow. She is doing well though.
