A recent update on the GoFundMe page, which was started by a woman named Melinda Pastors, reads:
As I sit here with Billi holding her hand this morning, in her ICU room, I can’t help but feel the love & care that’s being shown to her. She’s giving this whole ordeal one helluva fight!! she’s strong this morning, even opened her eyes!! Mike said she tried talking but was very limited on speaking as the tubes are making that next to impossible. And more good news this morning (bring it on)…she’s finally stable enough to do an MRI on her mid/lower back!! (Lots of damage in the spinal area). Another good mention from the Doc, is that she could, quite possibly have her spinal surgery (fusions) early next week IF she keeps improving at the rate she’s displayed this morning. Billi is proving to us ALL she’s giving it all she’s got, fighting hard & staying strong!! This girls in it to win it!!! She’s still on life support despite all of her progress.
We wish her all the best and hope she makes a quick recovery.
