Update – Lexi DeForest

Do you remember Lexi DeForest?  In case you don’t, she is the Colorado State University student who in late August made a video of herself while she laid waiting (painfully) for a Search and Rescue team in a remote section of Wyoming after severely breaking her ankle.  For more information about what happened, please read our original post.

Anyway, about a month after her accident, Lexi posted another video.  In it, she provides more information about what caused her to fall and the effort involved afterwards to rescue her.  Like the first one, this video offers us all many great lessons — Chief of which is the power of positive mental attitude.  Happily, Lexi appears to be doing amazingly well.
