We will update her status on here. So please check here for all information.
Yesterday was Erin's first day on her road to recovery. Due to injuries sustained during her fall, Erin's brain began to swell. On admission, Erin received a craniotomy in order to relieve the pressure within her skull. A CT scan revealed broken facial bones and swelling, but no brain herniation through her foramen magnum (the opening of the skull leading to the spinal cord). She is currently on a ventilator in order to protect her airway and to assist with her breathing. Throughout the evening, she remained stable. Her kidney is functioning well and she has no signs of other internal injuries. Her heart produced some arrhythmias around evening time, which was corrected after providing her with some electrolytes. She had no acute events overnight.
This morning, she had a repeat CT scan which showed no new changes. Good news! She also looks less swollen today. She attempted to take a few breaths on her own which is a good sign. She will remain on the ventilator, however, as her airway must remain secured. She is also still in a coma which is what she needs to fully recover. She has not regressed any throughout her journey so far, but she has a long road to recovery. Erin is certainly a beautiful, brave, and strong woman and she is getting exactly what she needs right now...beauty sleep and lots of love and prayers.
