Katie Needs Your Support
As you may know, Katie Mills, age 23, suffered a brain aneurysm the morning of September 4, 2015. She was airlifted to CMC where she remains in an ICU step-down unit. The aneurysm occurred at the base of her brain near the speech center. Katie was just starting her life as a young adult, and her life is forever changed. She is paralyzed on her right side, and has started to regain some of her speech and is able to write some. Her brain and body have a very long road ahead. Katie has started rehab and her doctors remain optimistic that they can help restore 80% of all her functions – but the exact timeframe is unknown.

Update from Alason 9/29/15:
Katie had a small setback today, she had two small brain bleeds beside the original major bleed. Shocking and earth shattering to hear, however the two blood vessels that bled are no longer active bleeds which is good news. The original bleed has decreased in size, also good news. No further damage was caused from the two bleeds today and she has not lost any progress she made in rehab. She has been moved back to the critical care ICU for monitoring, and will more than likely, God willing, be moved back to rehab within the next day or two. The CT scan in the morning will tell all. She is emotionally and physically exhausted, and wanting nothing more than to go home and continue her road to recovery. Please continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers, for she has yet again jumped another hurdle by the grace of God.
