Maryann, yes, Heather did remain paralyzed, but just being alive is a miracle in and of itself. She is pretty healthy, and full of joy, and stays busy all day long. Feel free to click on the "author" hotlink and email me if you have more thoughts/questions.

I would love to hear more details about Heather's outcome physically. Did she remain paralyzed? I know the focus of this article is on the many miracles she received, but I would like to know more.

You two are great examples to so many . . . including me!

Thank you for sharing this inspiring story; I, too, have experienced many of those types of tender mercies. My accident was 19 years ago today, and my spinal cord is injured at the C6-C7 level. I am blessed with a wonderful family who takes care of me, and with the privilege of working in the temple. I’m so thankful for the tender mercies of the Lord! ❤️

Such a deeply touching story, especially because my own life was saved under similar circumstances. We can be so grateful for our faith and for being able to see the hand of the Lord in the detail of our lives.

Thank you Diane for your message of faith, determination, and the Lord’s tender mercies. We stand in awe of the love and persistence you have given to Heather and shown the rest of your extended family over the years.

The miraculous fortitude and angelic spirit of this young lady humbles ME every time I visit her. She can run rings around a computer to creative the most awesome graphical renderings. She is truly a wealth of beauty and determination

Seeing you and Heather in the temple regularly has been a tender mercy in my life—a great blessing from the Lord!
