Sunday evening update:
Heidi had several visitors today. We are blessed with so many friends who love us – thank you! Andi and Andrew also came and brought Megan back. It was so good to have Heidi and her “hero” together today and I know it lifted Heidi’s spirit to get a hug from Meg. Megan was her cheer leader after the accident when they were waiting for the paramedics to get to the scene. Erin has made it safely back to Illinois State University to finish up her semester. As most of you already know, our girls rock!
Heidi has been taken off the pain meds through the IV and is now taking oral meds for pain. She also successfully went for a ride in a wheelchair — zoom, zoom, zoom. For now, she is snoring as I type this update and hopefully she will have a restful night. I will be leaving soon to be with Megan.
I will plan to be here early in the morning to talk with the surgeon for an update, I’ve been spending most of my time into the late night hours with Heidi. We are hoping to get some good information about what it will take to be able to leave the hospital. We have no information about that yet. I know many of you are asking “when can she go home?” and we just don’t know. The discharge area of the whiteboard says TBD.
Please continue to pray for healing and ongoing issues related to rehab, especially emotionally, for all of us.
