Van Stone (Elle’s father, the love of my life and husband) had a tragic fall down our stairs the afternoon of 12/21/18. It was terrible because Elle and her two friends were playing in our basement where he fell. As I was backing out of our garage to run an errand I stopped because Elle and her friends ran out of the house crying and yelling for help. Thank God the girls were there because they saved his life.

When I ran inside, Van was at the bottom of our stairs unconscious and bleeding. The first responders were outstanding and they were able to get him to the hospital quickly. There is severe hemorrhaging on the left side of his brain but each day he continues to improve.

We are optimistic he can make a full recovery but it might take 9 months to a year. Time doesn’t matter as long as we get Van back.
