The teen was airlifted to Rapides Regional Medical Center, where she remained in the pediatric intensive care unit Monday.

Family members declined to comment on Lee’s condition Monday, but said those who are interested could visit Adams County Christian School’s Facebook page, where updates about her condition from her grandfather, Terry Fisher, were being posted.

Over the weekend, Fisher wrote that doctors were taking steps to remove blood from Lee’s lungs, and that doctors hope to be able to have Lee not only able to walk but run and jump again.

Monday afternoon, Fisher wrote that improvement had been seen in Lee’s lungs, though some blood remained.

He also wrote that doctors are working to take Lee off of sedation, but are not happy with her initial responses.

“They are doing an (electroencephalogram), which will determine her brain activity,” Fisher wrote. “Our prayer is for good results from it.

“From everyone involved in Blair’s life, we thank you for your prayers. They are definitely being seen and felt. Blair is proof that God is still in the miracle business.”
