Adjusting to home

Cory and I visited Debbie on Saturday evening. It nearly made me cry to walk into Wright's home and finally have Debbie there. I had been there a few times while Debbie was in the hospital and it felt empty.

Debbie is doing well and adjusting to being home. She does really well getting around the house and taking care of small tasks. Her body is pretty healthy- skull, of course, is still healing. She is now working through the remaining side effects of the accident. On the right side of her body she has trouble with vision, hearing and face numbness. The hearing and numbness (inside her mouth as well) make talking clearly difficult. Several people have compared her current situation to recovering from a stroke. Doctors told Debbie that it could take up to a year for her to be fully recovered. We will all be there supporting her along the way.

Cory and I were both impressed with how well she looked compared to the last time we saw her. Her recovery thus far has been a miracle.


  1. Thanks Jamie for the update. We all appreciate you doing this site. We were wondering how she was doing at home. Heard she was doing a bite of 'farm work' over the weekend, hope she is really careful!!
    Thanks again Jamie.

  2. We are glad to hear that Debbie is home and doing well. We will continue to pray for a speedy and full recovery.
    Thad and family
