Another Small Step Forward for Rob

27 Aug 2011, Posted by JaydaSteele in Blog, News

Okay everyone, she’s off the ventilator! This is VERY good news.

She is disoriented right now, not quite sure what is going on, but as much as she’s been sleeping and/or sedated, that does not surprise me. The doctors feel she should be clearer-minded by tomorrow.

For those who’ve asked, she is not yet in a room to which flowers/gifts/cards can be delivered. As soon as she is and if her mother feels it isn’t detrimental to Rob’s security and recovery to volunteer that kind of information publicly, I will share that the moment I can. If for some reason she will not be in a position to receive gifts, just keep doing what you’re doing: sending love, light, healing, prayers and buying her books.

I hope you all are having a good weekend. I am exhausted – physically and emotionally – but filled with such hope!! It’s so nice to see some light at what has felt like an endless tunnel.

So – yay for baby steps forward!!!

    She has all my best wishes for a swift and thorough recovery.

    Please consider putting up a Paypal link for donations for her. I would like to be able to contribute toward the payment of her medical bills, but I’m not interested in purchasing extra copies of her books.

    Such wonderful news!!! Thank you so much Jayda for keeping us posted — you’re awesome! I just found out about all of this about 2:30 this morning. That’s what happens when you’ve got your head in the sand with a looming deadline. I just can’t stop crying for my poor girl. Words can’t describe how glad I am to hear she’s off the ventilator and starting to wake up.

    Sending constant prayers to Robyn and her amazing mom!

    Thank you so much for the updates. The updates seem to be coming after I have closed my computer or turned off my phone for the evening, and I have found myself checking in the middle of the night, when I wake up for whatever reason, the first thing I do is check for these updates. I am so thrilled with this news. I am sending my thoughts your way Rob, keep fighting to get better, you have a lot of people out here that care about you.

  • B.E Sanderson

    Yay! Keep at it, Rob. You’ll be up and around in no time. (It’ll still seem like forever, trust me, but it really will go faster than you think.)

    And thank you, Jayda, for providing updates – through which I’m providing updates to my daughter in college. We both love Rob’s writing and are pulling for her.

  • teresa

    so glad to hear she is doing so much better, and going from when my daughter was placed in a coma, give her a few days actually to get a little clearer, she was so out of it… and pick her up a hand held dry board, the vent tubes make it VERY hard to talk after removal ……still sending healing energy and happy dance…now Jayda, GET SOME REAL REST!!!

    YAY! Wonderful news! Celebrate ALL milestones, big and small, and this is one that is HUGE! I’ll keep everyone in my thoughts thru the storm, and Rob, Mom and Jayda, keep taking it one day and one step at a time! That’s how people and worlds are made strong again! May Buddha and the Great Spirit hold you all in the palm of his hand.
