Hollis is coming home today ! She’s in the air as I write this and is scheduled to arrive in San Francisco around 2:30pm !
This a repost from Agent Chaos on friendsofhollis.blogspot.com :
“Thanks to a very large loan with interest and everything, Hollis’ family was able to secure a flight while we are still in the fundraising state. We will be giving all of the money we raise to her mother. She has been paying the hospital bill everyday in India, and she will be taking care of the financial burden. Now we know that Stanford has offered their care, but we have to be real about the nature of her injury and the mystery it is shrouded. Brain stem controls the involuntary motor skill, like blinking and breathing. While she was still on the respirator, the future looked very grim to me. When she began to breath on her own again, it was a very good sign. We need to be real about the possibilities of her outcome. She could have a full recovery, or she could need assistance for the rest of her life. This money you have donated will be the safety net for her while she is considering waking up from the horrendous moment where everything changed for her. And really, the fact that she is calibrating her eyes to both look in one direction, and that she is communicating through slight hand squeezes shows that she is regenerating. These things take time. I can only that our golden light we are lending her and Harrison will be the strength for the next step. And a better one.
Rick Lamark gets a big High Five for donating an ambulance to pick up Hollis from the airport tomorrow. He and his crew from the San Mateo division of the American Medical Response will be picking up our lady and transporting her to the Stanford Hospital in the next 24 hours. They will also be escorting her with a response vehicle too, so our lady has an entourage.
I will be asking the hospital about the visiting hours and regulations, as well as her room number so we can start scheduling visits with her. I will post those here, so stay tuned for more information.”
