WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - A 10-year-old girl who suffered severe injuries in a boating accident at Winfield Lake last month has shown more signs of improvement, but had a rough weekend, according to a page providing updates. 

A post on the Rally for Rielynn Facebook page shared two photos from Saturday, one of the girl sitting up in her hospital bed and another of of her her hands and someone else's joining in the shape of a heart. 

"She is climbing that mountain with God by her side and all of your prayers pushing her," the post said. 
 

Then on Sunday, another post said, "Send your prayers and keep them coming the last 36 hours have been rough. Not going into much detail but just keep praying to our mighty God."

Rielynn Martin suffered severe head and brain injuries after police say a boat slammed into another parked boat in the middle of the lake Friday, May 26.

It was a huge step forward Thursday for the 10-year-old girl who was nearly killed in a boating accident at Winfield Lake last week.

Rielynn Martin suffered severe head and brain injuries after police say a boat slammed into another parked boat in the middle of the lake Friday.

After nearly a week in a medically induced coma, emergency brain surgeries, and fighting pneumonia and a staph infection on top of it, the family says she finally woke up Thursday, recognized everyone and is following directions.

 

The family says they want to flood the room with beautiful cards and words of encouragement for when she fully wakes up. If you'd like to write something for her, send it to this address:
