Meg arrived safely in Atlanta

Thursday, April 26, 2012

Quick Update
Posted about 12:15 pm

Note from Grandma,
Meg was upbeat and anxious about the flight to Atlanta. Wanted to have juice, Blueberry Yogurt, and Peaches for breakfast. She touched down in Atlanta at 11:00 AM. Keep the prayers and thoughts coming for Meg as she continues her journey.


Dolly Goodwin Throckmorton, Meg's mom
Posted around noon on Facebook near Norcross Mobile Home City, GA via mobile

It's a beautiful day in Atlanta!



So glad that Meg remains positive and is so excited about eating healthy foods. Amazing how these young dancers eat healthier than anyone I know...including me. They avoid putting junk and excessive foods into their bodies as it zaps their energy. I wish someone had made sure I knew and understood that at such an early age.

I am asking for continued prayers from my spark friends as Meg goes through this difficult rehabilitation. I ask that God's will be done as He brings continued healing to her. Although we do not know the direction He has planned for Meg's life, I know that it will be the right one for her.
Have a wonderful week.
Blessings, love and hugs,
Helen

What a great day it has been! After being told for a couple days she couldn't eat and drink yet, Meg is finally allowed! They gave her some water and soft food to munch on and she couldn't be happier. They asked her what she wanted next and she can't even decide. Grandma Throckmorton brought some homemade butterscotch pie and Meg said she would want some of that later! Meg is just ecstatic today and said it's the best day ever. Along with this, they also adjusted the vent in her trachea so now when she talks you can actually hear her and not have to read lips.

Tomorrow is the big move down to Atlanta, GA to begin rehab at the Shepherd Center, which specializes in brain and spinal cord injuries. This is a top facility for spinal cord rehabilitation and Meg is anxious to get there and to start working hard already.

Thank you for all of the continued thoughts and prayers and we will keep everyone updated on Meg's progress of the next couple months at the Shepherd Center!

Update for Meg and God's answered prayers

Monday, April 23, 2012

This speaks for itself. Praise the Lord for His answered prayers...all in His time!!!


Monday, April 23, 2012
Posted about noon

Oh what a weekend it has been. Saturday after her surgery, Meg was exhausted from her surgery and had trouble resting the night of and that day. By the afternoon they had gotten her settled down finally and she was able to get a few hours of sleep.

Sunday morning, Meg was ready to get out of that bed at 6am after being told on Saturday that she would hopefully be moved into a wheel chair she could then be moved around the Pediatric floor and possibly outside and get out of the ICU for a while. After begging every doctor or nurse all morning, Sunday afternoon they finally got a team together to move her into the wheel chair so she could get out for a little while. Sadly, the weather didn't cooperate so we could only take her to the fish tank in the main lobby and to the windows. Just this half hour or forty minutes was enough for Meg to relax and feel a lot better. She had a smile on her face the entire time.

Meg has also been begging for something to drink so Sunday morning we were able to give her a little water on a sponge to suck off then eventually she was asking for some blue Gatorade. We tracked down some Gatorade and gave her a few drops from the straw and gave a huge sigh of delight afterwards. Not long after Meg was asking, "That's it, give me the straw!" Unfortunately, she can't have too much liquid yet but that doesn't stop her from trying to trick every person that walks into the room to give her a few drops!

It's been a good couple days and Meg just wants to watch some movies and veg out until it is time to go to rehab!

    It is great to hear things are progressing for Meg!

The water/Gatorade thing reminded me of when I worked at a nursing home. There was one patient who was on fluid restriction, since left to her own devices, she would drink so much water that she would get a horrible electrolyte imbalance and could die. Yet, she begged for water from everyone and tried to trick them into giving her some. We had to go so far as the turn off the water to the sink in her room. It was very sad, actually.

Update on Meg...please continue prayers

Saturday, April 21, 2012

Each day gets easier and each day brings a small miracle even if it is simply a step forward :) Thank you for the messages and prayers everyone! We are overwhelmed and are sorry we cannot respond to everyone individually, but we appreciate every single kind word, prayer, card, etc and so does Meg! She continues to work hard and be so strong and brave that she astonishes us. Again, we appreciate the support of our community!

Friday, April 20th, 2012
Meg's surgery went great with no major complications. She had a
tracheotomy and a diaphragmatic pacer inserted which will allow her
to breathe on her own. She'll have the weekend to rest up and begin
rehab on Monday!

Our girl came thru all 3 procedures with flying colors today! The surgeons were thrilled :) will get to see her soon!

Saturday quick status:
After all that she's been through in the past week, Meg's got a smile on her face and is happy to be able to communicate easily! She is enjoying all of the prayers and kind words she has received!

Meg was injured in a fall at the dancing studio owned by her mom on Friday, April 13, while practicing for a dance competition. She has done these dances a thousand times or more but it only took a second for this freak accident to happen. She was life flighted to Ruby Memorial Hospital where she has remained in the Pediatric ICU. She broke her first and second vertebrate and has already had one operation to put in pins. Her rehab will be long and extensive. I cannot say any more at this time because I have been friends with this family forever and will respect their rights to privacy. I will only share what they share.

I am asking for continued prayers from my spark friends as Meg goes through this difficult rehabilitation. I ask that God's will be done as He brings healing to her. Although we do not know the direction He has planned for Meg's life, I know that it will be the right one for her.
Have a wonderful week.

Update on Meg...asking for continued prayers

Monday, April 16, 2012

We received this tonight from Meg's mother and I wanted to share it with you as I ask for your continued prayers for Meg and her family.

"First, the Throckmorton Family would like to thank everyone for their love and support during the past few days. You may have already heard that on Friday evening, Meg suffered a spinal cord injury and is currently in the Pediatric ICU at Ruby Memorial Hospital. We want to reassure everyone that Meg is stable and completely alert and aware of her situation. Meg is an incredibly strong and smart girl, and she is fighting hard to rehabilitate herself. We are still in the early stages of recovery, but she is receiving the best care at Ruby. We respectfully request no visitors at this time, as 100% of our focus needs to be on Meg. However, we graciously welcome any cards, letter, or pictures to be given to Heidi which will be forwarded to Meg....Again, we thank you for all of the thoughts and prayers for her, and the continued support is much appreciated. We will continue to give you updates as we feel necessary and as decisions are made."

I am asking for continued prayers from my spark friends as Meg goes through this difficult rehabilitation. I ask that God's will be done as He brings healing to her. Although we do not know the direction He has planned for Meg's life, I know that it will be the right one for her.
Have a wonderful week.

    They are in my prayer more than once daily, I put her picture as my wall paper. It breaks my heart she has a spinal cord injury at such a young age. I was 37 when I was paralyzed at the T-7and I am a complete injury for twenty years now. It is a traumatic time for the family but prayers and cards went a long way to keeping my spirits up. I have a friend my age who was in a car wreck with her boyfriend at the age of sixteen. Her story is amazing, she helped mentor others while they were in the hospital. She married and had a baby girl the last I heard from her! Life can go on and dreams fulfilled. It is hard to see it in the confusion and difficult emotional shock of it all. The recovery is one day at time, it is all you can handle physically and mentally in the beginning. My prayers are that with all the new drugs they give you right away she will still have some nerves undamaged and just effected by the swelling! I pray the swelling goes down and she starts to have some sensation below the injury level! Do you know her level of injury? C-neck, T-the chest, L -lumbar the back below the chest, C- coccyx the lowest of the back and tail bone. I fell from a fire engine on the job and lost so much of what I loved to do, but I am alive, I am here to be a mom to my two daughters and a wife to my awesome husband. I would love to send a card when you feel it is ok!

God Bless her and her family and give them strength during these difficult times!
