Sunday Update

Erin had a relaxing day. She seems to be healing every day. It is amazing to see her every morning. It is human nature to want to see her make an "improvement" every day. We have to remember that she does. Her body is healing itself. Every day that she rests is a day that the trauma subsides and her brain swelling contracts. The doctors and nurses aren't expecting any further swelling, but are constantly monitoring her vitals 24 hours a day.
Erin had an awesome show of support today from all of her friends and family. My cousin Shawn and his wife Tracy came in from Canada to help out for a few days, it's great to visit. Erin had a slight temperature last night, but it quickly went down.

Erin found St. George's 10 years ago and we are so thankful for the experience and support she gets from her "Dragon" family. This week the 8th grade is making their yearly trip to D.C. and Erin is absent for the first time since I can remember. I think I've mentioned this in a prior post but it is worth mentioning again today. She always looked forward to the trip and loved to see the kids learn about our country's rich history and take part in a future generation learning about our government, an aspect that is uniquely American. Sorry for the late update. I am looking forward to a positive week in Erin's recovery.


  1. What great news that Erin has been taken off the ventilator. Seems like it was a good weekend and I hope every day continues to get better for Erin and her family.

    Thinking of you all,
