Sandra Lambert Story of strength and survival

NOKOMIS   --   It's a story of survival.
An Escambia County woman attacked by two pit bulls.
They nearly killed her and she lost her arm in the attack.
  
That happened just over a month ago outside her home on Jakes Road in the Nokomis community.

Sandra Lambent is smiling, laughing.
Thanking God for the little things.
I made an omelet this morning on my own, laughing.

Her life changed back on July 18th.
I knew this day was the day I was going to die.
She rescued two pit bulls a year ago.  She was out in the farmyard with them when they turned on her.

She took me down, totally went into kill mode.  She grabbed my arms.  I had her on a leash, she turned on me, took me on ground and was tearing me up. I had no help. I kept begging her not to kill me cause I could see kill in her eyes, then I started begging her to kill me.

It was her her long time best friend, Buddy who saved her.
He saved my life, when he came around they got him, they let me go.  When they let me go,  I could have just lied there, I felt like I was finished,

She made it back inside called 911 and was airlifted to an USA Hospital in Mobile.  Buddy didn't make it.

"I love him so much"
It's been a long journey for her.  She's now out of the hospital staying with her daughter.  But she goes to physical therapy two days a week at West Florida Hospital.

I got a skin graft here.
It's now tough for her to do everyday things.  She still has several bite marks and she's learning how to live without her right arm.

Pulling up the back of my pants and brushing my hair,  hahaha.
Throughout all this she now cries tears of joy moved by the kindness of others

I'm overwhelmed, overwhelmed with this little country girl who never saw anybody.
