Amber Oursler, Kaelynne’s mother, provided an update on her daughter to NewsChannel 9 TV and Syracuse.com’s Charley Hannagan.
Oursler was quoted yesterday saying that Kaelynne is able to walk a little with a new prosthetic leg at Boston’s Spaulding Rehabilition Hospital.
Her arm is not yet ready for a prosthetic.
Mom said Kaelynne was disappointed to miss the opening of school, misses her friends and can’t want to get home to Homer.
A welcome home party is planned for Saturday, September 17 at 1 pm at the Homer Community Building.
The two men who helped bring Kaelynne Driscoll and her father Christopher ashore on July 7 were recognized by the Onondaga County Sheriff’s department in a ceremony Tuesday night.
The Driscolls were injured in a boating accident on Skanateles Lake.
Sheriff Gene Conway spoke about the heroic actions of David Goetzmann, 28, of Skaneateles and Eric Marcinkowski, 40, of Syracuse, before presenting both of them with the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Civilian Recognition Award at the Skaneateles Firehouse.
