Our sweet Ashley was involved in a car accident Thursday night (August 23, 2018) and suffered serious injuries. She was transported to Denver Health and Hospital where it was determined that she sustained a fractured vertebrae at C6-C7. She had surgery early Friday morning to stabilize her injuries, an Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion (ACFD) was performed from T1-C5. She will undergo an additional procedure on Monday August 27, 2018 to stabilize the back of her neck. She is conscious and responsive, but they are keeping her sedated for her comfort.
Ashley is paralyzed from the waist down but she does have limited mobility with her arms. We are hoping after some reduction in the swelling of her spinal cord she will regain complete use of her hands.
We remain hopeful and always positive that she will achieve the best outcome possible. We need your prayers for her strength of mind, strength of body and strength of soul.
We know that Ashley has many friends that want to come and visit her and provide support but as a family we are asking that visitors are limited to immediate family for now. She is currently in intensive care and will be there the first week at a minimum. The family appreciates all the support but resting is part of the early healing process. Ashley needs rest.
If you wish to leave a message on this site we will make sure and share that with Ashley.
This will be a place to get updates on her condition and progress for her recovery.
