Nella was leaving work in Fargo, ND. She was on the ramp to Hwy 94 and hit an icy patch. She spun into on coming traffic and was hit broadside.

She is now in the ICU in a coma at Essentia Hospital. 

She has 2 broken vertebrae, broken arm and ribs.

On a ventilator and in a coma.

I know there are hundreds of her family and friends concerned about her. When she DOES wake up and comes back to us. She will need a lot of help.

Please help Nella any way you can !

Bill and I wanted to thank you again for your generosity in contributing towards medical and other expenses during Nella's recovery. My apologies for not providing updates here; we have been using CaringBridge to provide updates to family and friends. Link is included below. If you are interested in updates, I'd encourage you to follow her there. Register in the site by simply including your email and then you will receive emails when there are new journal entries. I've been trying to write every few days.

It is going to be a long road. It has been 27 days since her accident in Fargo. She was transferred from Essentia ICU to the Regency Hospital of Minneapolis (a long term care hospital) a week ago. She remains in a semi-comatose state, but we are seeing baby steps of progress every day. And I keep seeing glimpses of our girl. Most recently, her playing with a stress ball shaped like a small softball and she keeps fingering the ball to align the seams :)

It takes a village, and we have a strong one supporting, loving and caring for Nella. <3
In gratitude,
Collette, Bill and the Pitzen Family
