Kerrie has continued to make improvements at Kessler over the past two weeks. Her children have been able to make additional visits and they have gone very well. Both Kerrie and the children have responded very positively to the visits. Their insurance company (Horizon) has requested regular status updates but thankfully has not denied coverage since the first denial (and Kessler’s successful appeal) in early August. Kerrie is more awake during her therapy sessions and has made improvements that have registered on the JFK coma scale which is used to track her progress. She is following commands more consistently and has become more verbally active in response to her therapists and family. We are pleased that she has been able to stay at Kessler but are ready to respond if Horizon issues additional denials.
We understand that she still has a long road ahead of her but we are very happy with her progress over the past few weeks.
Thanks again for everyone’s thoughts and prayers and good advice. Please continue to keep Kerrie and her family in your thoughts in the weeks ahead.
The Prettitore, Moore and Matteo Families
