Morgan Gobeil released from hospital

HUMBOLDT — After nearly 11 months in the hospital, Morgan Gobeil, one of the Humboldt Broncos in the April 6 crash, has been released.

“We are incredibly proud of the progress he has made – 333 days of extremely hard work,” his family said in a release. “He has endured many medical procedures and hours upon hours of physical, occupational and speech therapy.”

The Gobeils said Morgan has celebrated his high school graduation, his brother’s wedding, his 19th birthday, several holidays and has witnessed the change of all four seasons during his time at the hospital.

“While Morgan has not regained his speech or his ability to walk yet, we remain hopeful that those will be the kind of milestones we will someday be able to celebrate,” they said.

The family thanked Morgan’s doctors, nurses, therapists and support staff who cared for him during his time in the hospital, as well as family, friends, neighbours, Morgan’s teammates and their families, and the community for their support.

“The messages, phone calls, visits, meals, gifts, but most importantly your prayers, have truly carried us through,” they said.

Morgan now starts the next step in his recovery. He’ll work with a therapy team at Saskatoon City Hospital as an outpatient. His family is building a new team of therapists within Saskatoon to work with him as well.
