My Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site, created to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and prayers.

We received a call around 9 pm Sat., August 18, 2012, that my mom, Nancy Howard, had a gunshot wound. A man came into the garage as she was arriving home, just before she exited her car, and shot her once, just above her left eye. The bullet traveled through her throat and lodged just above her right lung. My mom was able to call 911 and talk with the dispatcher and EMTs before they intubated and sedated her. She is stable and responsive, knodding her head and squeezing the hands of those she loves. We have a great support network, and my mom is a fighting like a champ, and we expect to have her home soon!
