According to the latest update from fundraising event coordinator Linda Foster, on Wednesday, July 13th, Jensen experienced severe pain in her neck and back of her brain. Foster added additional information about the Caring Bridge. She said, “(Jensen) had a hard day with pulmonary mucus buildup that obstructed her tracheal tube.” The report also noted that Caitlin Jensen’s medical tests were delayed because facility staff were overburdened with multiple traumatic cases. Jensen needs to recover quickly with her proper treatment and rehabilitation.
