I am not sure where this is supposed to go, so if I placed in the wrong place would someone please move it?

To my wonderful friends at Critical Dance,

Your generousity and thoughtfulness has overwhelmed me and just makes me cry with happy. The cards, flowers and stuffed animals are just amazing. I have never received anything like this before! Not even close!

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I hope we can see ballet together soon.

The rest of this message is one that I used on other sites also, explaining what happened and what I can expect in the future.


With the generous help of who paid for the phone installation at the "Home" and the loan of a PowerBook from my previous paper I am able to get back on line!

I have missed my online comunity SO very much - more than I ever would have thought. No friends to communicate with, no words descrbing my beautiful desert and and just no joyous presence you all bring to my life. The cards and flowers and teddy bears from people I have never met have touched me deeply. Thanks to all.

You all should see my zoo! At first it was just a couple of bears, then more bears and then a coyote and now a donkey and Halloween Cat have been added to the zoo. I am having such fun looking at them late at night. I am coming to the conclusion one can not have enough teddy bears!

Also, the wildly coloured HUGE butterfly balloon that is up on my ceiling is very interesting after I have had my heavy narcotic medicationl. Thank heavens I am weaning myself off that no matter how pretty the pictures in my head!

The donkey is very soft so I sleep with him tucked up under my cheek. I have regressed to being 5 years old.

The accident was mostly my fault, I pulled out in front of a pickup truck that was speeding and I misjudged his speed and whump.

I sent someone for my friend who is the curator for the museum I had been visiting. She came and put her head down next to mine and I told her "this could be it."

Little did I know how close I was in several different ways of shuffling off this mortal coil. The emergency folks and the doctors at the trauma center did a fabulous job. First just saving my life and then when they figured I was stable a week later they did the recontructive surgery on my shattered pelvis and hip. The X-rays are fascinating! Sorry if this is more than some of you want to know. But everyone always seems to be so curious as to what happened.

I will not be able to walk for a few months and hopefully the bone will grow quickly on the hip for it to regain it's strength. I am thinking I may have to give up my vegetarian ways and eat red meat because I need the protein.

Well this is long enough. Bests to all and thank you so much for your love and prayers.

(If you read this same post in other sites I apologize, but I am too tired to write different versoins!

Love, Lara

How great to hear from you, Lara! :) :)

My thoughts and prayers are with you and for your speedy recovery.

Those stuffed animals can be very comforting, and so is the knowledge that so many people are concerned and sending good vibes your way.

Keep going, Lara!

LARA :) :) :) :) :) !
Welcome home to criticaldance!

I'm glad you injury wasnt any worst and considering the accident youll be walking again in less than a year.
Maybe you can spend some time watching some dance videos or some I LOVE LUCY tapes(laughter is the BEST medicine).
If you want to be more frustrated watch things like that STUPID Bachelor 2 show(LOLOL).

Welcome back, Lara. I hope you are recovering well. I'll be moving this thread to the What's New, right next to the other thread we had on you! :)

It's good to hear that you have been readmitted to Cyberspace Lara.

You've had more than your fair share of bad luck in the past year and I hope the coming months are MUCH kinder to you.

Get well soon y'hear! And to aid your recovery here's a great dance image:

Lara, it's great to hear from you! :) :) We were all very worried when we heard you had been in an accident. :( Maybe watching Will Kemp dancing in this Gap ad will speed up your recovery too -->
