This following two updates were shared by Dee's son Billy Stanley via his facebook profile:
"Had a nice visit with mom... She's a little better, she was talking to me... Just breaks my heart to see her, like this though... She told me to tell you guys, Thanks for the prayers and thoughts."
"Mom is doing better, but it's going to be a long road to recovery... She won't be coming home, she'll be going to an assisted living home, first... After they evaluate her condition there, then we'll know more..."
