My girlfriend and I met at Burning man this past year and had an absolutely magical and crazy time, and have been living together ever since. We just got engaged last week and wanted to get married at burning man next year. We had just started to plan our wedding and were also planning on moving to Colombia later this year.
She came down to visit me here in Colombia where we rode to the coffee region outside of Meddillin on my motorcycle. On our way back to Meddillin for her flight out we were riding around some very dangerous curves in the mountains. As we came around an extremely sharp turn a little to fast and found ourselves head on with an 18 wheeler. I tried to turn as much as possible and we hit the gas tank of the truck and bounced off and shot about 20 feet down the road.
We are both extremely lucky to be alive, a couple inches either way and we would have been over a cliff, in front of the truck or under the truck. My girlfriend broke her lower back in 3 places and shattered part of it, and the first doctor told her she would never walk again. We got another doctor who worked on the head football coach of colombia (who got shot 2 years ago and couldnt even breath on his own and now is moving, breathing, talking and possibly walking soon).
She is in the best hands possible, and we have been so fortunate that everyone has really come together in this situation. We have so many positive vibes coming our way and im sure a couple more couldnt hurt. She is in a 6 to 8 hour surgery as we speak and we will know more later today. They said after this sugery she will need another one 8 to 10 days later to put plates and screws in her back.
She is the absolute love of my life without a doubt and we were both so excited about our wedding at burning man. We were planning a Â¨Space CadetÂ¨ wedding. I want to give her the wedding of a lifetime and believe me shes an amazing person and deserves the best. We are currently preoccupied with other things as you can tell, but she said it would mean the world to her if she could walk at our wedding and she is a fighter and I am confident that she will if she wants to but it will be a long and hard process.
Anyway if anyone could help us in planning our wedding or pointing us in the right direction it would mean the world to us. Even if you cant help, just send your positive vibes and good vibrations this way, god knows she could always use more of them. Everyone here has been so amazing, and I am sure that everyone we encounter in the future will too.
Thanks in advance.... I will post more when she gets out of surgery, her doctor said to go in with a smile, and she was ear to ear. So things are looking up but im sure she would appreciate all the support she can get at this time.
