Wendi is still progressing and continually doing better. Last night her ventilator was at 80 percent, and this morning it's at 40 percent. This means she is 60 percent in charge of her own breathing. They are planning to continue weening her off of the tube today.

When we got to go see her earlier, she was responding to commands to wiggle her toes, to open her eyes and to squeeze the doctor's hand. We are allowed to talk to her now, and when we do, she responds. She tries to sit up when she hears us, and tries to spit out the ventilator. She still isn't focusing with her eyes or looking at anything directly because she is still heavily medicated. It's wearing off though, and to my knowledge, they aren't giving her anything else to keep her sedated.

We thank you so much for your prayers and your thoughts. Surely they are being answered!

We will continue to update on Wendi's condition throughout the day, every time we are able to find something new out ourselves.

Thank you
The Hansen Family


  1. We have been out of town, and we got the news this morning! Our hearts go out to all of you, and we pray that Wendi will continue to improve each day! Love, The Montoya Family

  2. I would really like to help more with raising funds to assist with the medical bills. One option to help get the word out to friends & loved ones is with a First Giving page. It is easy to set up & makes it very easy for people to donate. and anyone who uses facebook can share a firstgiving link with their friends. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.
    Much love to all of the Hansen family!
