Wreck Pics and new truck

I just wanted to share what has been going on in the past 6 months. I was driving from my Fire Dept Aug 30 2011 with my girlfriend when I had a seizure going down the road. As soon as I started seizing I stiffened up and nailed the skinny pedal. My girlfriend freaked out because it was my first time I had ever had one. We blew threw an intersection at approx. 80-90mph, went over a median and the truck flipped several times. We were buckled up so we were not thrown. My head was caught in between the door and seat and I was blue when the paramedics arrived( I was still seizing). My girlfriend had a broken back but was not paralyzed. After cutting me out I was airlifted to Charlotte trauma center. I woke up the next morning with no recollection of anything that had happened. Turns out the seizure was caused by meds the doctor had put me on weeks before. I suffered a broken back and a broke rib but nothing major. I lost my license for 6 months since I lost consciousness while driving, and as you can see the truck was totaled. If it was not for God me or my girlfriend would not be here, and I can honestly say the good Lord and a Ford saved my life.
