Wednesday, 5:45PM

Allison is still largely the same. She hasn't had her MRI yet, I think that is happening tonight.

Jon was able to go see Allie today. When her parents told Allison that he was coming she got really excited and was kind of flailing about, which is good. Unfortunately, that meant they had to sedate her some so I don't think she was very responsive when Jon was there. They had quite a bit of time alone together then one of Allison's nurses went in and was able to answer a lot of Jon's questions.

Jon had PT today and was able to hop all the way to the hallway and back (maybe about 20 feet?) but afterwards he was absolutely exhausted and sore. They gave him some leg exercises to do while in bed. He's been able to eat a bit more solid food, soup and crackers and such but he still doesn't have a big appetite. He's been getting some good rest today.

We had a visit from one of the responders at the scene today, I wasn't there for it and I won't go into details but needless to say we are *very* fortunate that they are both alive. My dad went to see the wreck today and took some pictures. I haven't seen them yet and I don't think I want to right now but he said it was absolutely unbelievable. Short update for now, I'll let you all know if there's more news.


  1. Thank you so much for the updates, Dave. You are all in my prayers--please let Jon and Allie know they are loved dearly-

  2. Thanks so much for the updates. I just now learned of the accident, and am still in shock. My thoughts are wtih Allison and Jon - please let Connie and Mike know my heart is with them.
    Thanks much - take care, all.
