Stacey is at the Lafayette Rehab Center. A great facility. She is walking on her broken leg, great progress! She is also texting me and using Facebook. She will be there for a couple of more weeks, so don't be afraid to contact her, give her encouragement, and reach out!

July 2 ,2013

I stopped in last night to see Stacey again. She really wants to go home, but has a few weeks left of rehab. She is looking really good and she is gaining strength. I continued to be amazed by her determination and her recovery.

She has been on Facebook, and she congratulated me on Gentry's acceptance to school  in the fall!

I told her I was safe in her room, as it was my daughter's first driving lesson during the time we visited. She appreciated the humor and told me I'd live through it! Tim is doing an amazing job in his role of care giver and supportive husband. Most of her therapy is in the morning, and she enjoys having visitors.

Kevin and Rachel will visit her this afternoon.

I continue to visit Stacey, and I marvel at her strength and spirit. She is responding well to therapy, can sit on the side of her bed, stand on her "non-broken" leg, tell stories, smile, and laugh. She is stronger every time I see her, and she looks great. It is hard to believe that just under 3 weeks ago she was in ICU. She continues to be amazing. I encourage you to stop in for a visit, as it is hard to be away from home, work, and friends. The address is:

Kindred Rehab Center
300 Windy Hill Drive
Lafayette, Indiana 47906

And you can visit any time, but I have found that late morning she is not in her room due to her rehab schedule.

Yesterday, I was holding her had and she teared up and thanked me for holding her hand. Gentry is going to stop by and do her nails in pink, which was Stacey's request.

I know that Tim could use support as well. He has been by Stacey's side through the entire ordeal.

Visited Stacey in the recovery center and she was talking, eating, smiling, and doing really well considering what she went through less than two weeks ago. She is tough and we miss her. Received a picture from Tim earlier this morning of her sitting in a wheel chair, they might even get to take her outside today. Rumor has it that Olive can visit her. I took Yang's Monkey in today and got a big smile from Stacey. Keep sending those well wishes and visit her if you have time.

Good news today. Matt arrived and visited, shortly after, Tim met with the doctors and they have upgraded Stacey's condition. Stacey was moved out of ICU today. She is still At St. Elizabeth East, but now she is in room 3S20. Assuming she continues to make such good progress, she will transfer to a rehab center early next week. Friend power!

Visited Stacey this morning. Tim is still sleeping in a chair in her ICU room. Brought coffee and fruit. She looks better each day. According to Tim they has used a lifting devise to sit her in a chair for a couple of hours the past two days. She is managing her pain with fewer meds and is interactive. She is eating and drinking and working to regain her memory. Expect her to be in ICU for another week or two.
