We just want to update you all on what is happeneing and how Wendi is doing. We have been visiting her room often and Richard has been by her side all day. She has been off all sedatives and pain medications since about 5 this morning, and is still working to wake up completely. She periodically opens her eyes and looks around at family. They have been pretty strict about who can visit and how many of us can be in the room at once (which Wendi has questioned us about in her own special way). She wants us all to be around her and we are taking turns visiting. She is still pretty sleepy and isn't able to talk because of the tube assisting her with breathing, but we are hoping she will be awake soon.

The nurses are running some tests currently and they will be moving her from the Shock Trauma Unit to a regular hospital room to make room for more critical patients, which seems to be a good sign.

We are grateful for all of your prayers and continue to be blessed with comfort and strength. We are grateful for the power of the Priesthood and the blessing of the Gospel.

We love you all.
The Hansen Family
