Alright. We see how it's going to be, you crazy generous people of the interwebs. We've upped the goal to an INCREDIBLE $20,000
thanks to the insane amount of support we have already drummed up in under a week. Think of how we could help Becca and honor Kip with one month of overwhelming support? I think we just may be able to reach it if we can tap into the competitive nature that I believe resides within each DVM student. So yes, DVM students, particularly those at Cornell, I'm throwing down the gauntlet.Here is an update from Becca's mom, including her new address for sending cards:
Rebecca has been moved to a step down to ICU this morning which is really good.... but she was frustrated with it at first because it is set up as a "ward" with 8 patients and curtains between the patients.... it is louder and busier than where she was, and she was not comfortable at first. She got a good sleep in this afternoon, and then had a good walk with PT, and a wonderful visit with some of her friends from Cornell - then the First Responder from the accident came to visit her - that was amazing!
Now we are sitting and she is playing with some puzzles. She continues to work on her language -- it will be a work in progress......
We continue to thank everyone for all your support, it means so much to all of us. Thank you so much!
Building D floor 5 Room D558B, Albany Medical Center, 43 New Scotland Avenue, Albany, NY this is an intermediate ICU so no flowers but she can get cards.
