My daughter, Megan Smith, 24, is still at Kennestone Hospital. She had surgery on June 7 to repair a tibial plateau fracture of her right leg, a fibial fracture, and a dislocated right ankle. The laceration under her left arm required stitches and there are bruises and abrasions. She has a long road to recovery, but we are thankful that she will recover. Our family is extremely grateful to the police, EMTs, and emergency room doctors and nurses who cared for Megan after her accident.
