Jane’s health status as of 07/19. SHE IS HOME!!!

Many of you have asked for updates on Ken’s wife, Jane, as she has dealt with this illness that she has been facing. She has had a serious, yet treatable illness called Guillain–Barré syndrome.  She is HOME!  She is doing better than expected with her rehabilitation process. She has begun to take her first steps. (She walked, with a walker, for 21 feet yesterday.)  She has tremendous upper body strength. To go from COMPLETELY paralyzed from the neck down, unable to blink her right eye, to being able to take a few steps, is truly amazing. Many people have asked “how long until…” Here is what I will say to that. We will know how long when we look back after it is all over and see how long it took. We now know it was 6 weeks until she was off of the ventilator…8 weeks to hear her voice…10 weeks in Chicago…and 6 weeks in acute rehab.  To be honest, she doesn’t remember much of her Chicago hospital stay. She has been reading all of the cards in the past few weeks and has been so encouraged. All of the well wishes, cards, encouragement and prayers have been so appreciated by Ken & Jane.  THANK YOU, BVNers!
