“Despite all of the challenges she faced our little girl has amazed everyone with her recovery to the point where we were discharged with her hopping and skipping out of the hospital. She has lots of rehab, medication, and scans ahead but we are so grateful to be where we are right now. Thank you to everyone that’s reached out to us. Keep your loved ones close,” added the southpaw.
