Little Ja’Nyela Marsh-Highshaw is heading home after being shot in the head last month.
Doctors at Children’s Hospital are calling her survival and recovery “astounding,” a story from FOX 6 Now reads.
Ja’Nyela was shot Nov. 4 while sitting in her family’s car at 18th and Villa and had to be airlifted to Children’s for treatment of her wounds.
Remarkably, she was awake and talking just two weeks later after coming out of a medically induced coma.
“The fact that she has survived is astounding. The fact that she has survived and done as well as she has is even more astounding,” Dr. Bruce Kaufman noted.
Jannika Marsh, Ja’Nyela’s mom, knows her little girl has a long road still ahead of her, the story from FOX 6 continues. Not only will she require at least one additional surgery, Ja’Nyela continues to recover all the growth skills – including memories – she had before she was shot.
“The more I see her do, it gives me the ability to just stay strong, because every day something’s new for her,” Janikka told the news station.
Racine police continue to search for the suspect(s) who shot Ja’Nyela, and Crime Stoppers of Racine County is offering a $1,000 reward for the anonymous tip(s) that lead to their arrest.
Anyone with information about this incident can leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at (262) 636-9330, via web at:http://racine.crimestoppersweb.com/, or by text message: RACS to 274637(crimes).
