An update from Scott, Autumn’s father:
“Today, Autumn graduated to Craig Rehab Hospital in Denver. She is showing marked improvement almost daily and she is ready for intensive training to improve her brain function. Her periods of alertness are getting longer, and her daily walks are a little more steady.
This morning they removed half of the 49 staples in her head. She is going to have a huge scar to always remind her of what God has done. Just as Cinnamon referenced Joshua and the stones to remember God’s rescue, Autumn will always have a mark to see God is healing her.
Today marks the beginning of the next chapter that will be long and challenging. Autumn has great energy, but she still struggles with recognizing us as parents and simple facts elude her. She has vacillated the last few days between recognizing us and not having any idea of who we are. She thought Cinnamon was a long lost relative she was just now meeting in the hospital. She has also made us laugh by talking in a British, an Asian-French (?), and a Russian accent! She’s really not aware of doing it.
Each day is going to prove to be interesting, to say the least. We know the road ahead is long and we don’t know what lies at the end, but we are thankful for all of your prayers for our beautiful daughter.”
