    I saw that on CNN last night. What a strong, determined woman. I came here and looked to see if there was a missing thread for her. Thx for making one. I hope she pulls through.

    Amazing. Just goes to show there is always hope when a loved one goes missing.

    It's horrible that her feet have had to be amputated, but I think it's a small price to pay for being alive through such an ordeal. I pray she has a strong support network around her to help her through her recovery.

    Thinking of Kristin and her loved ones.

    WOW!!!

    She has four children. I'm thankful those people were concerned and curious enough to climb down that embankment.

    This is just such a remarkable story - even moreso now that more details are coming out!

    Bet this is really what kept her fighting - even if it wasn't a conscious thing she was using to "hold on"

    What spirit she's got - already kind of teasing her kids that they're not going to get away with anything just because of what she's been through!

    Crazy that the battery was THAT far away! (and that given that it was, that the glass hadn't shattered in at least one window to perhaps help her get out.

    Note to self: carry a Sharpie in my purse or car ;)

    Her presence of mind and resourcefulness was truly astounding! (As was her will to live!)
