Amy could fly home on Friday

I spoke today with Rich Werner, father of Vermont student Amy who was so badly hurt in the car accident on West End Lane a couple of weeks back.

Rich sounded more upbeat and the news that many of you have been asking about is that Amy continues to make good progress. She still has a long way to go. She’s breathing unaided now, and she can move her arm – seemingly in response to stimulus.

An American PA at the hospital very kindly arranged for two Thanksgiving dinners on Thursday night for Amy’s parents, and there was even a special Thanksgiving meal made for Amy, who is still receiving fluids only.

Her progress, and reasonably stable condition mean that she could be heading back to the US on Friday. This would be in an air ambulance and she would be transferred directly to Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston – part of Harvard Medical School.

As you can imagine, the Werners are excited at the prospect of going home, so fingers crossed that Amy’s recovery continues. They asked me once again to pass on their thanks to all the local people who’ve been sending messages of support and keeping Amy in their thoughts.

    Tuesday 27th update. Following a meeting with the neurologist, Amy's return to the US has been pushed back a week just to be on the safe side. She continues to recover, but will undergo another operation today

    Sunday 2nd update. I met with Amy's parents last night. Amy continues to make progress, but it's steady rather than rapid. Depending on the results of the latest MRI scan, they hope to fly her home this Wednesday.

    They made a point of thanking the West Hampstead community for all its support and good wishes.
