Mini vacation photos...


During our visit to Owatonna we went to Mineral Springs Park. There was a nice little playground that Owen enjoyed with several slides. One slide was very large and he loved that one! Here are a few photos from the park.




This is Owen and Princess Owatonna.



We haven't had any news about my aunt yet. She is still in the ICU. They should had her body temperature lowered for 24 hours which is supposed to help preserve brain tissue. Due to this she was sedated and paralyzed so she wouldn't shiver. They were going to begin warming her back to normal body temperature yesterday which would take 8-9 hours. After she was at normal body temperature they would begin removing the sedation, which would take another 8 or so hours. After those two things were done they would be able to watch for signs of brain activity and do further tests. She was down for close to 30 minutes before they were able to revive her. However, her heart appears strong. We continue to hope and pray that she will recover. Thank you for all of your prayers and concern.
