Thank you so much to everybody who has reached out to me and my family. We really appreciate all the support and are thankful for the kind words and prayers. Hannah is a fighter. The progress she's made in the last 14 hours has been incredible. She was taken out of the coma but has yet to open her eyes. She is breathing on her own and doesn't have to be asked more than two or three times to follow commands about wiggling her left toes, right hand, etc. She knows her name and over night she said, "my head hurts" and "help me". There's still a long way to go but she's doing great and I'm so proud of her. Please keep her in your prayers.
