Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. Thanks to some caring friends Cassie was found on April 7th on her apartment floor after being unconscious for potentially up to two days. She was brought to Sacred Heart Hospital in Eau Claire, WI where she was found to have a Blood Sugar reading of 1150 and a Temp of 90.7 degrees putting her into a diabetic coma and having hypothermia, as well as being very dehydrated and having ketoacidosis. She also had a small brain bleed, but they don't seem to be concerned that it will be a problem. Although they have gotten her blood sugar down and temperature up, there remains a long way to go for Cassie to find her way back to wellness. There have been many small improvements showing us how hard she is working to get better. Her blood pressure and heart rate have improved greatly, her potassium levels have gone down and her white blood cell count has improved. Please continue to pray for Cassie, as well as her family. We have a long road to travel together!
Cassie is spending the weekend in Red Wing with her mom and dad. She will head back to Eau Claire for the week so she can attend her physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and wound care appointments as well as following up with her endocrinologist and any other specialists she'll have to see. Tony and Denise will continue to stay with her switching on and off taking turns throughout the coming weeks. She is gaining back her strength little by little every day!
