Yesterday afternoon Mary Grace’s family posted on www.caringbridge.org an update on her condition saying “Mary Grace has continued to make slight improvements. However, due to the intensive/acute therapy she is undergoing, the medical staff is making a few changes:
Effective immediately, they want to stop all visiting with the exception of immediate family. Even then, they only want family visiting for very short periods of time. The doctors feel she needs significant rest at all times except for when they are performing their therapy work.
Also, there may be fewer updates posted in the coming weeks. Rest assured, we will continue posting as any significant changes occur.
