An Update On My Niece, Bridget

I heard from my niece, Emily, Bridget's older sister yesterday. She said Bridget got up with a walker 3 times the night before to go to the little girls room and that she stayed awake for 5 hours straight. She may be able to go home Sunday to begin her long process of healing.

I also got a little better description of how Bridget hurt herself from Emily.

Emily writes, "From what I have heard from the various sources, this is what happened:

They were practicing rescue and retrieval and Bea was on a 20 foot platform. They lowered someone to the ground and she went to unhook them. She got nervous and unhooked herself accidentally. She didn't realize what had happened as she was falling and, even in the midst of the fall, thought she would be caught by something. She doesn't remember hitting the ground, but when she woke up, she was surrounded by people and she realized what had happened. She thought "oww. that hurts" and tried to get up and "shake it off" as she said. She feels very badly about the whole thing - our poor Bridget!!

Anyway, things are looking good and we are feeling so blessed that she isn't hurt worse. From what all the docs have said, she is one lucky girl!!! We are so happy she is still around :)

Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers - she still needs them to keep her spirits up and work hard at recovering."

So, Thank you all who have left such nice messages about Bridget. I appreciate all your thoughts and prayers and I know Bea and her family do too!!
