Gunshot survivor gets prosthetic face

Chrissy Steltz, 27, from Milwaukie, Oregon, was shot accidentally at close range by a friend at a party in march 1999.

The shot blew a huge hole in here face where her eyes and nose used to be.

Mrs. Steltz went into a coma and spent six weeks in hospital.

Doctors said it was a miracle she was not killed but the blast left her badly disfigured. She was also blinded and lost part of her hearing.

Mrs. Steltz, who married last year and has a one-year-old child, wore a sleeping mask to cover the hole but has now been given a prosthetic replacement 11 years later.

Doctors used photographs of her as a child to create the mask as they thought she would look like now.

New blog and new address

Since my last blog was taken down last night for reasons that I'm not quite aware of (they haven't told me exactly why yet), I had to start another blog! How long I will be on this address, I don't know but I hope it will be for a while!
Hopefully I will be able to start where I left off in the other blog but all the things I wrote about there is lost I'm afraid! Who knows, maybe they will find out that they made a mistake with the other blog and let me continue with it!

May all your days be magical
