Steve's Life Story
Steve's 18th Birthday
Steve Stoica was involved in a severe car accident on Tuesday night (October 2nd, 2012). Around 11:45pm, Steve was heading back from work on N. Textile when his car ran off the road, crashing through several trees and ending up in a ditch. It took firefighters two hours to get him out of the car, and he was immediately transported to the University of Michigan's hospital via helicopter. Since Steve's arrival, he's been in surgery twice, which doctors said went well. Now all we can do is pray and wait. For all those who know Steve, he's a great guy and I'm sure he'd appreciate all of the thoughts and prayers. God bless.
It has been awhile since the last time there has been an update, but healing takes time! Steve has made amazing improvements since December. His therapy is going very well making greater and greater steps towards his recovery! He has started taking a few classes to catch up on his school work. He is lifting weights again (which is not a surprise!). He currently still has one more surgery left for his right leg and that is scheduled for April. Now for even better news! Rumor has it that Steve is planning on coming to church one of these upcoming Sundays! Which One? Come to church to find out!!Steve & His Family are Thanking Everyone who has come to visit him at home since he has been out of the hospital! Please continue to #PrayForSteve & His Family for there is still more work to be done!
As many of you know after 78 days in the hospital Steve wnet home today at noon! The Stoica family thank all those who have visited and have kept them in your prayers! Steve will continue to have therapy dailty so any visitations MUST be coordinated with the Parents first! Please continue to #PrayForSteve and his family for there is still more work ahead of them!
For those who plan on visiting Steve TODAY visitation hours will be from 5pm do to his therapy schedule. And there will be NO Visitation this Saturday, Dec. 15th!
A message from Steve to everyone: "Thank You to everyone who came tonight. Thank You for all the Prayers and Thank You for all the birthday wishes!"The Stoica Family thank all those who came out tonight to celebrate Steve's 18th Birthday! Also thank you to everyone who helped make this event happen! Please continue to #PrayForSteve and his family!
Steve is making great progress as each day goes by. Therapy is going very well and he is catching on to things quickly. He has started TALKING since Monday with a very quiet whisper and as each day has gone by his voice has been getting louder and louder, and now his voice is normal again. He understand what people ask him and he still remembers everything. We Thank God for the healing he has done so far but he still has a ways to go until he will be completely healed. We ask for everyone to continue to #PrayForSteve and his family.
Steve has been moved to the 10th floor since 5:00pm for the next 24hrs as he will be having his trach tube removed tonight. You may still go and visit but because this is the PICU you must first go to the WAITING ROOM! We will inform you once he is back to his original room! Please continue to #PrayForSteve and his Family!
As many of you saw in the pictures circulating facebook, Steve is doing much better! God has moved mountains and given us miracles upon miracles and He is STILL working :) Steve has woken up, however, he is obviously not the same Steve before the accident. All of this will take a lot of work and therapy as well as God's interference in order to get him back there, but as of right now we praise God
Steve has been moved now to the 12th Floor of C.S. Motts Hospital. Hospital visitation hours are from 9am - 9pm.Since this is a new floor and we don't want to have any problems with the staff please keep the sames rules as before.1. When you arrive, go to the WAITING ROOM FIRST NOT STEVE'S ROOM.2. You MAY NOT go to Steve's room WITHOUT a family member escorting you!3. Also the room is not as big and so they will only allow 2-3 people at a time due to space. Steve has therapy scheduled everyday during the week in the mornings at various times each day for a few hours. So for those who want to visit Steve the best time will be after 3pm. If you go before 3pm you may end up arriving during the time he is in therapy and you won't be able to see him. So to play it safe, come after 3pm.Please spread the work around and continue to #PrayForSteve and his family!
