Update on Devon Morrow


(Tuesday, Feb. 27, 2007)

Devon's progress has been amazing - hospital staff are calling him the "miracle boy".  He has been kept very busy with a school class in the mornings and various rehab sessions in the afternoon.  He will be discharged this Thursday and will continue therapy as an out-patient - initially doctors felt he would be in hospital for months.  We believe he will recover 100% in no time at all.  At this point, it is anticipated he will return to school after March break and will finish this term attending half days.


Many thanks for all the get well wishes and support from across North America; it has been overwhelming.  Our prayers have been answered.  Thank you.

Devon was brought out of the coma… a process that took a little over 24 hrs.  Of course, if you know Devon, he came out of the coma quicker and was talking sooner than anticipated.  His memory is slowly returning and this morning he remembered the previous day and that was extremely exciting and a relief.  Dev is very weak and visitation is restricted to short periods at a time.  He will be having several tests and consults on Monday.


Cards may be sent to Devon Morrow in care of CHEO REHAB 5 East Bed 1, 401 Smythe Road, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada K1H 8L1.


Thank you so much for all the support, calls, e-mails, and prayers.

Devon Morrow was in a snowmobile accident early Saturday morning, February 10th, near his home.

He suffered a severe head injury and is in the intensive care unit of the Children's
Hospital of Eastern Ontario.  At this point he is in an induced coma to allow his body to heal.  His condition is improving slightly every day.

Please keep him in your thoughts & prayers as he has a long road ahead.
Note:  for those who do not know
Devon  - he has been an avid Canadian Hackney Society Junior Exhibitor - winning many awards including the CHS Overall High Points Award on several occasions.
