27-year-old Anna Bindert is in stable but critical condition in the Surgical ICU at University of Iowa Hospital after being in an automobile accident over one week ago that killed her unborn child and severed both of her legs above the knees.
A GoFundMe has been set up by Bindert’s sister to help the family cover medical expenses after the tragic accident.
An update from yesterday posted on the GoFundMe page:
Anna is getting prepped to go back to surgery to close her amputations. She still has still not woken up yet, but the night nurse said she opened her eyes a couple times last night when she said her name. I’m not sure if it’s reflexive, but it is positive progress. I just got to talk to David for the first time about his insurance costs. Their catastrophic injury deductible is $11,000 before their insurance starts to cover anything.
Bindert’s husband posted on Facebook asking for prayers:
From the GoFundMe page:
If you cannot donate at this time, we ask that you please pray for her healing, for her husband’s continued strength, and for her daughter LouAna’s courage and faith that her mommy will be okay.
Anna and her husband have a six-year-old daughter.
