Biege and Richard have been visiting Wendi for the last hour or so. She is still on the ventilator and so she is still trying to wake up from all the sedation.

Biege has sent us a text (we are all waiting in the waiting room 'cause she can only have 2 visitors at a time right now) and he said that Wendi opened her eyes and they told her she was in the hospital and she got a confused look on her face and put her palms up and mouthed the word 'why?'- she can't talk because of the ventilator in her throat.

Another small, but significant step, friends! Wendi is getting better all the time.

Biege here: I have just come back to the waiting room and wanted to let everyone know that Wendi is doing very well. The doctor has said that when she will wake up and when she will get the ventilator out depends on her. - and it seems like she wants the process to be quick. We have been asking her yes/no questions to help wake her, and we have been explaining the situation so that she does not feel lost. We have told her of all your prayers and support and I am sure she feels everyone's love. She is sitting up more, at her request, so that she can see what is going on better. She is still sedated, but they have cut off the medicine and she is slowly coming out.

I also want to let everyone know that Richard, Bergan and Bozton are up and about, doing well and feeling good. Everyone is calm and simple waiting to hear from doctors and of course Wendi. She is in great hands (the best CO poisoning specialist in the country from what we have been told) and we have the best medical technology available to us.

Thanks to all of you,
The Hansen Family


  1. I will be praying for you. My sister Trish brings her kids to Miss Wendi's preschool. She was there Tues. am and has been shaken. I too have my own Preschool & share that bond with Wendi. I have heard wonderful things about her. I will pray for a speedy and safe recovery. I'm so glad you decided to blog and tell the facts and updates. Best wishes to the whole family, Gina

  2. We love you! Please get better soon. Audri and Aeddon love and miss their teacher Ms Wendi.
    Get better soon!
    Love the Morgan Family

  3. We have just received this blog address from Brother Peterson and are so grateful. We have had you all in our prayers continually since we first heard but never knew how you all were doing. So, it is with great relief to hear that you all are doing so well, and that Wendi is improving daily. Just can't tell you how heavy our hearts felt when we heard. We look forward to the day when you are all back home again. We love you. Adrian & Pat Tindell

  4. Great news. We'll keep praying because we know prayers are answered. Thanks for doing the blog so that those of us with phone-a-phobia can stay informed without bothering you. Please know we are with so many others willing and ready to help in any way we can when you figure it all out. Love you so much!
    Barb, Bruce and boys
