Lauren has been at Craig Hospital since Tuesday, April 19th. She is sleeping and eating well, her physical injuries and facial scars continue to heal well. She is generally frustrated and confused at times, which is a common emotional stage of recovery for TBI patients. While there are no set expectations around recovery phases and timelines for TBIs in general, there are several common patterns that occur and that can be helpful for her support system and helping Lauren through her recovery process.
Lauren is very active, which is understandable given the fact that she was in peak fitness at the time of her crash. The doctors and physical therapists are limiting her to walking for now and exercising her legs is calming for her.
The doctors will run several tests this week (MRI, EEG, etc) and we’ll keep you updated.
Fox31 from Denver did a story on Lauren, you can read and watch it here.
