I, Jennifer Hites Littrell died at age 22 All because while I was driving alone on my motorcycle, an eighteen-year-old high school senior was driving her mother’s car with NO automobile insurance. She made a U-turn, causing a collision with me as I was traveling 35mph. It was May 23, 1996 at 11:37pm. I was pronounced dead at the scene for 4 minutes. I then was air lifted to a trauma care hospital, with a broken right collar bone, ruptured spleen, crushed left optic nerve, damaged inner left ear, I had received a severe head injury and was in a coma for 2 weeks. So now, I live with no eyesight in my left eye and no hearing in my left ear; (without the use of a hearing aid). I was wearing a helmet, jacket, riding boots. I probably would have stayed dead if I hadn’t been.
Now, 2011 comes around and with a new hurtle. I will again have defied the logic of doctors. In my story, my family names are correct. But my medical staff names have been changed. All medication will have a * next to them. Also, I will place the day with a # into which the chemo month I am currently in. I will separate lines when the event occurs thru out the day. Despite my memory struggles, though at times there may be an attitude, I never give up.
