Makayla Noble may soon be moved out of the ICU. She suffered a spinal cord injury during a tumbling accident. And she has a message for those who have shown her support over the past few weeks.
As the football season goes on at Prosper High School, 16-year-old Makayla fights on in her hospital bed. The senior cheerleader is making strides in her recovery after suffering a spinal cord injury from a tumbling accident last month.
Makayla’s father, Greg Noble, has been by her side. “She’s handling this better than anybody, adult or child, could,” he said. “It’s inspiring. I am so proud of her.”
In a huge win for Makayla this week, she could swallow on her own and could be out of the ICU in a few days. The world champion cheerleader still has limited movement in her arms.
Makayla is on oxygen during the day, and some nights she needs a ventilator to breathe. Two weeks after the accident, doctors say it’s still too early to tell if she will ever walk again.
Prosper cheerleader Makayla Noble goes home for the first time since her accident in September.
