NORFOLK, Neb, — Neil and Becky Pfeifer welcomed home their son, Isaac, on Tuesday after an extended hospital and rehabilitation stay in Omaha and Lincoln.
The Norfolk family, with the help of construction workers and volunteers, had been getting their house ready in recent weeks for Isaac. He has been confined to a wheelchair since suffering a severe spinal injury Nov. 6 in a Norfolk Catholic football game against Fort Calhoun.
After initial hospitalization and surgery in Omaha, Isaac had been staying at Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in Lincoln.
It isn't known when he will return to classes at Norfolk Catholic High School, where he is a senior.
