Here are the latest developments on mom blogger Stephanie Nielson of the Nie Nie Dialogues.
For months now, we've been engrossed in the story of mom blogger Stephanie Nielson, mother of four, who was in a plane crash with her husband back in August. She was in a medically-induced coma for over two months while she underwent countless skin graft surgeries for her burns, which cover over 80% of her body.
Stephanie came out of her coma last week, and is even sitting up and talking. She has not been able to see her children yet, but doctors say she is "out of the woods." Read about her sister's latest visit with Stephanie here. (Warning: Break out the Kleenex.) Meanwhile, her husband Christian, who was burned on over 30% of his body, has been released from the burn center and is in outpatient rehabilitation therapy. Their children continue to live with Stephanie's sister Courtney, who is a blogger in our momlogic network.
Fundraising efforts continue for the couple. Their medical bills are expected to reach into the millions. Find out how you can help here.
