16 year old Jake Burnside was the lone survivor that killed three high school classmates
Burnside's family says Jake has been moved out of the intensive care unit and he'll be tranported to a rehabilitation center on Tuesday.
His parents say Jake used a walker on Monday to take some steps, he's been sitting up in his chair without assistance and he's been talking to many well wishers. Among those paying a visit were
Creighton's Doug and Greg McDermott.
The family statement says the McDermott's visit was a welcome surprise that brought a big smile to Jake's face.
Jake's road to recovery is expected to be long. His parents say they don't know how long he will need the rehab.
Carter and Karen Burnside praised the doctors, nurses and support staff at Alegent Creighton Health Creighton University Medical Center. "They did a great job handling the emotional as well as the medical aspects of his care. They were caring, showed heartfelt sincerity and understood our issues. I can understand why this is one of the best facilities in the midwest."
The Burnside's say the continued thoughts and prayers for Jake's recovery are apppreciated.
