We have been touched on how many tender mercies that we are constantly given. This accident was no exception.
First, the people that surrounded her were her friend Lisa, who is an RN, a very tall big man, who is an RN, and an EMT. Because of their knowledge, they did everything right.
Second, one of Kelly's friends and fellow riders showed up late. He had managed to make it to their group and needed to rest before going on. The second the accident happened, he called Kelly. Kelly didn't answer, so he was able to bike like I'm sure he never had before and reach Kelly to tell him that Cindy was in an accident. Otherwise, it may have been hours longer before he found her.
Third, when Cindy met the surgeon, she felt peace overwhelm her. After the surgery, she found out that the surgeon's specialty is trauma orthopedic surgery. He has great experience and was on rotation from Cassia Regional Medical Center in Burley.
Fourth, the anesthesiologist was on rotation from Pocatello and is a long time friend of Cindy's and was able to help Kelly give her a blessing.
We do not believe that any of this was a coincidence. Cindy had the best care possible. All of the staff were LDS and that was a comfort to her. There were so many that stopped to see Cindy and Kelly and see how they were doing who did not even know them. Sometimes the Lord has something that he wants us to learn.
