The Harris Family will provide periodic updates on Allie that we’ll post below.
July 8th: Allie remains in the ICU with significant trauma to her upper body. She is making slow and steady progress. She will continue to have some days that are worse than others as her little body does what it needs to do in order to heal.
July 10th: Allie continues to take small steps forward with her overall condition. She has some hurdles ahead of her, and will start with her first reconstructive surgery this week. She has wounds and fractures that will take time and intense care to heal. Allie has been moved out of the ICU and is able to sit up and walk, for short periods of time, with assistance. Her personality is showing through during the times that she is awake and alert, and we remain hopeful that she will regain her glowing charm as her body continues to heal.
July 11th: Allie had her first reconstructive surgery today to repair the trauma to the bones around her eye. She is in recovery and doing well.
July 13th: Allie remains in good spirits! She cannot believe that so many people who don’t know her are sending her cards, balloons, and gifts. She feels so special and loved!
After surgery earlier this week she experienced a small complication that required a chest tube be placed. She is stable and her body is otherwise healing as expected. Allie is getting stronger each day. Last night she asked to watch the sunset from the window in the hallway, and soaked in the beauty. She enjoyed seeing the planes in the sky and watching the cars go by.
Allie continues to find the best in every situation. She is talking to her friends about sleepovers and playing with American Girl dolls when she gets better and is back home!
Thank you for your generosity during this immense time of need.
