If you follow 21_F.gif judi on facebook, you know what she has been going through the past few days.

If you haven't, here's the story in a nutshell -- she was in a riding accident and hit the back of her head on a rail fence (she said the fence didn't break). She has been in the hospital, home, back to the hospital and I think is back home now awaiting an MRI on monday.

She seems to be in good spirits, but *has* been fairly seriously injured, and could really use your thoughts, prayers, positive energy or whatever you do. :)

Judi is a long time member and inspirational photographer, so as a way of saying, "We're with you!" post your favorite judi pic in this thread!

I love the simplicity of this, and the "fun" that is implied --



edited to add -- here are some words from judi about her injury (as she posted later in this thread) --

Drs said I may not get everything back. They say my brain might have had some shearing occur. I believe that is when the 2 hemispheres are jolted in different ways and they break apart in some areas. they say that is why i can think clearly but cant get the words out of my mouth. I can however type ok with two fingers a lot easier than i can speak. I still have problems with stairs and my right hand is not working. I can use the first two fingers. My double vision doesn't bother me too much and my hearing will hopefully settle. I'm allowed small amounts of computer time to keep my brain stimulated but i sleep a lot. I have lost some long term and short term memory, it appears to be all bad memories. I can see faces from bad times but i don't feel any emotion with them. But i can feel good emotion. I look at my images and I know I took them but can't feel the connection with them. I tried to create an image yesterday on the pc but it just wasn't happening. I'm scared, as are my children. My mother-in-law is coming up to help take care of me. They say it may take a few weeks but I may not return to normal. They speak of personality changes and other things. But I am determined to get better and shoot again and ride my horse one day. Those are my goals. I do have 2 entries in voting right now. They will be my last for a while. I am sorry for any bad i may have caused anyone in the past. I don't remember what i did but i know i only want happy positive times. there is so much anger and bad in the world. i don't want any more bad to happen. Please be happy everyone.

So sorry to hear of your injury, Judi.

The first image at DPC that I remember feeling overwhelmed by is this one from you:


Feel better soon.

Take care of yourself, Judi!

Ofcourse I have many Judi pics in my favorites... :) This one, to me, shows her playfulness and well, her sexiness.

I know she's a fighter and she'll be back to doing what she loves in time.

Best wishes Judi.

I hope they find nothing with the MRI. You can get a MRI Right Now in the US if you get here before Obama Care.
