"I think it's awesome," Loren said in a telephone interview.
"It's amazing for them, not even knowing who we are," Megan added. "It's nice to know people care."
The Lettingtons live in the EBF School District. Megan and Loren have ties to the school, and Loren is known to be a huge EBF wrestling fan. The wrestling team held its own fund raiser already to help out the family.
"That turned out really well," Megan said.
Megan and her children are staying in a nearby Ronald McDonald House during Loren's recovery. She said everyone there has been great. The boys in the KMS TAG program are collecting pop can tabs for the Ronald McDonald House as its service project.
Loren is making progress during his rehabilitation. Earlier this week, he was able to get off of the feeding tube and eat an actual meal. His first dinner was his wife's chicken enchiladas, and he says it was the perfect meal for his solid food eating comeback.
Megan said his neck is getting stronger as well. He is able to turn his head to a greater degree than he used to. Loren said doctors are just telling him to take his recovery one day at a time.
The family will not be able to immediately return to home, and when they do, adjustments will be made. Megan is unsure whether or not they will try to get a new home or remodel their existing home to accommodate Loren's condition.
Loren fully intends to return to work for Vermeer when he is able. He said the company has been good to his family and done a lot for him since the accident.
"They've been a lot of help," Loren said.
