On Jan. 15, Cheryl Ott suffered severe head trauma from a fall. She was lifeflighted to Toledo and had surgery for bleeding and swelling on the brain. She was kept in an induced coma for 12 days. She has been improving every day. She will have to have another surgery in about three months. We want to thank everyone for their prayers for Cheryl.
