January 20, 2011

Mom has left the building!!!!! We have finally managed to escape the hospital and move on to rehab. Mom was moved yesterday after a wonderful party thrown in the Maricopa Burn Unit. The staff provided a beautiful cake and dad fed the troops in hopes of showing even the smallest amount of gratitude in comparison to what they have given to us. There was quite a turn out to wish Mom well. As I am sure we have all come to believe, she is literally a miracle in the eyes of everyone that she has come in to contact with. We cannot thank each and every staff member and pray that their lives are as blessed as we have been in the past months.

Mom is tube free and has managed to feed herself the occasional bite. Hopefully over the next few weeks she will gradually find herself more and more confident in everyday activities. The rehab center will work with her to walk with her prosthetic and begin to manage the lifestyle of an amputee. She will be taken to the burn center on a weekly basis depending upon her progress for bandage changes and check-ups.

As a family, we would like to ask you all to join us in thanks for the fantastic people that work so diligently to support the burn victims of our community.
