Stephanie Needs Our Help!
Stephanie Ford was taken by ambulance to Regional Medical Center in Anniston, AL on November 13, 2014. She was very confused, disoriented, and had absolutely no idea what was going on around her. After many tests and two weeks in the hospital, Stephanie slipped into a semi coma, a mild comatose state. She was finally assigned a wonderful neurologist who properly diagnosed her with herpes type A (the strand that causes fever blisters) and encephalitis (inflammation around her brain). Stephanie was on life support for four days in the ICU where she fought hard for her life!

Stephanie recently passed her latest swallow test completely! She is now able to eat or drink what ever her heart desires! Praise God! She is in much better spirits now that she can eat, & is very thankful she doesn’t feel like she is starving all the time. We are so very blessed & thankful for each & every person who has helped us pray for Stephanie through this journey. She still has a long recovery, but is improving daily!

Stephanie is doing amazingly well & is continuing to make daily progress! She is now speaking, talking in complete sentences, and is able to eat some foods. She is working hard towards her goal of being able to eat solid foods & most importantly, walking! We believe that she will accomplish these things in time. “Patience is trusting in God’s timing”. We are so thankful for the rehab facility & the dedicated therapy team who is working very hard together to give Stephanie the best treatment & to help her make a full recovery!

Stephanie is my sister whom I love very much. I visited her today and she looks so good! she's talking but it's just a whisper now; she's eating soft foods and doing physical therapy daily. #Godsgother. Praise Him.

She looked back and marveled how far she had came.. she didn't wonder how she made it.. she already knew the answer. Only with God's help had she powered through. For without His strength she could do nothing
