Elaine Astrue’s Journey

March 15, 20140 Comments

On Christmas Day 2008, Elaine Astrue was riding in a car headed to San Diego on I-5. The wind was extremely strong and they drove through the worse dust storm she had ever seen. Visibility was nil at times. Then, they hit a stopped car on the freeway. Her head hit the back of the seat in front of her. It happened all at once, like a flash of light.

Elaine healed, but had suffered a traumatic brain injury. She is now fighting back with stubbornness, compassion and commitment. Her story of recovery is ongoing in her blog, Route 66, a Journey.
