Wilkins left the hospital on Wednesday and is recovering at home.

“We cannot predict what lies ahead for Michelle,” the Wilkins family said in a statement released Wednesday. “What we can say is that we have all been deeply moved by the many people who have reached out to Michelle and her partner to share their own personal stories of tragedies they’ve endured and how they managed to first just survive and then eventually start to heal. That alone has given us the strength to get up and face each day.”
