Update on Morgan

As many of you know our sweet Morgan and her companion were hit while riding there bikes yesterday.  It has been a crazy and unbelievable night and day.  I feel a need to post an update.  She has , and our a family has,  amazingly wonderful friends and family who are concerned about her.  We so appreciate all of the calls, visits and prayers.  Please keep praying for her.  We were relieved to hear that her sweet companion was released from the hospital.  We pray for her and her recovery.  Morgan loves her.  She has been an amazing companion and a great friend.  We are so grateful!  Morgan had emergency surgery to relieve pressure on her brain early this morning.  We just spoke with a Doctor in Salt Lake who is working with the Doctor in Tahiti.  He feels she is getting great care and is getting the same kind of treatment she would here in the states.  We are so glad to hear that.  They plan on tapering off her medically induced coma on Monday.  We are praying for more miracles in addition to the ones she has received.  They do not plan to try and transport her back to the states for 10 days. It would be to dangerous for her at this time.  We will be updated again with the Doctor Monday night or Tuesday morning. Until then please continue to pray for her.  She has a long road ahead for her.  We do want to express our thanks to her mission president and his wife.  They are watching over her.  We are again grateful.  The things that make me so sad right now is how Morgan is going to feel when she realizes she has to leave her mission and the great people of Tahiti. She has many friends and loves them so much.  She will not be happy with this goodbye.  So, we will get her healthy and will return with her to thank these good people and to see the sealing of the couples that are being baptized next week.  I can't wait to hug my beautiful daughter.  She is truly amazing and will overcome the trials ahead.  I have no question.  Thank you all again!  I will update when more information is given to us.


  1. We all love her and will continue to pray for her and her doctor. Thank you for the updates. Wish that I could hug all of you right now. Know how much you are loved. Morgan is, indeed, a strong young lady; she's used to doing the difficult things. I have no doubt that she'll fight her way through this one.
    Much love- Jeanne Nielsen

  2. My whole stake is fasting for Morgan! I sure hope everything goes well!! Remember: "Peace be unto thy soul; thine adversity and thine afflictions shall be but a small moment; and then, if thou endure it well, God shall exalt thee on high..... Thy friends do stand by thee, and they shall hail thee again with warm hearts and friendly hands." D&C 121:7-9. Morgan and her family will be in my prayers!!! :)

  3. Oh, Marci! We are feeling it like it's our own missionary. And praying for her like she's ours. Jenny and James Willmore

  4. Since I heard I can't stop thinking about your family! Nothing like a tragedy and miracles to bring you closer to Christ and the true meaning of Christmas. I can't imagine how hard it is not to run to be at her side. My thoughts and prayers go out to you.
