prayers worked ! Allyson finally made the move from the
burn center at UCSD, to the re-hab facility where she will continue
to heal, and work to regain her strength through physical and
occupational therapy. Her condition has been upgraded from critical
to stable, but Allyson is still very weak, and still has the trach
collar which is preventing her from communicating verbally. Her
progress has been remarkable over the past few weeks, and she
may only have to be hospitalized for 3-4 more weeks. Although
she may be able to come home, she will still have to be transported
to re-hab daily for PT & OT.
We know there are many people who want to visit Allyson, and express
their love and support to her, but she is still not ready to receive
visitors. We know this is frustrating to her many friends who
want to see her, but please have patience with her...the time
will come when she wants to see people, but for now she is still
struggling with her losses and working to regain her strength,
and she has requested that we ask people to give her some space,
and time to heal. We will keep everyone informed of her daily
progress, and we will continue to share with her the messages
left on the guestbook here, and the many cards and letters she
receives in the mail.
Thank you all for your prayers, and support which continues to
lift us up and support us through these tough times.
Lori, John, Jason, and Allyson
