Darren Doyle, story:
Lexi Decker, a 9-year old 4th grader at South Edmonson has returned home from Centennial Hospital in Nashville after a 6-day stay with COVID. Her illness has prevented her from returning to school this year, but her family is hopeful that her return will happen soon.
Her grandfather, Dave Salzman, contacted the Edmonson Voice and is helping organize a wave party to welcome her home. Community members are invited to meet at Chalybeate Church today, Wednesday, August 25th at 4:30PM to form a parade that will drive past Lexi's house on Denham Road to celebrate her return.
"We are very glad to have her home," Salzman said. "We'd like everyone to come out."
She is the daughter of Drew and Mandee McDougle of Chalybeate.
