mid-december update

Today, for the first time since arriving at denver health hospital in October, Amy left her room in a wheelchair to sit on the fourth floor with a beautiful view of snowy down town Denver.

Over the weekend while childhood friends visited from CA, Amy ate her first full meals sending us running to the grocery store.

The physical therapy team continues to work on the right side of Amy's body which was affected most severely from the accident. Left side brain injury impacts right side physicality and visa-versa.

We met this week with a nurse from the traumatic brain rehabilitation center where Amy will be living for intensive therapy for about 6-8 weeks with family. To our delight Amy is nearly strong enough to make the move and we will do so after the holidays. This is the news we have been waiting for.

Amy's room is decorated with beautiful snow flakes and paper cranes made by friends. I'm looking forward to showing Amy posters for the January dance benefit when they are ready. We wish you all safe snowy holiday travels!


  1. I love reading good news about Amy, and I hope many of her friends will be able to visit during the holiday break. To all of you, a very happy holiday!
