After nearly two weeks under intensive hospital care, Former State Representative Selim Noujaim has been released home following his accident on Oct. 30. He was transferred to Yale-New Haven Hospital on Friday for specialized testing and monitoring and released late Saturday.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to the very skilled staff of St. Mary’s Hospital in Waterbury, CT, for their professionalism, dedication, and compassion while caring for our father. We are overjoyed that the expert staff at Yale were encouraged enough to allow him to return home.
While we are so very appreciative of the outpouring of support and well wishes, we do respectfully request privacy as Selim gets acclimated and begins his new routine of intensive outpatient rehabilitation therapy in the months ahead. Phone calls and visits are not encouraged at this time, but we know our father looks forward to seeing everyone again in the near future. The road is unknown and will be very strenuous, but we are fortified by all the positive thoughts and prayers we are certain are coming our way. Please keep them up! To our friends, family, and our community at large: we are eternally thankful.
