Kim Whittley put a hand to her left cheek: Every morning when I wake up, the weight of the worlds right here. The pain never stops.
Her face and mouth were extensively injured in a frightful fall from the bed of a utility bucket truck following Thayers Sept. 1 homecoming parade.
One second, Kim was sitting in the truck. The next, she was on the street writhing in pain. I dont know how it happened. I was waiting for traffic before getting down, then I was on the ground spitting out teeth and rocks.
