Updates on Makayla Noble

Thursday, Sept. 30

Makayla Noble, a varsity cheerleader who suffered a spinal cord accident Monday, Sept. 20, underwent a procedure on Thursday, Sept. 30 to clear up her lungs. She will breath with the help of a ventilator for a few days after. Before the procedure, Noble made an Instagram TV video to thank community members for their support.

“Thank you so so so much for all the love and support and prayers,” Noble said. “I’m getting flooded with them and my parents and family and friends are sharing them with me. All of you guys are just so amazing and I’m so blessed to just have you guys in my life, and have you behind me, supporting me through this long journey. Keep up the positive energy. My optimism has definitely not gone anywhere. I’m still the same Makayla, just a little different now, but definitely still me, and I’m excited for the future, and to get a little bit better, and improve mentally and physically, and just see where God takes me.”

Noble will turn 17-years-old on Oct. 13. Community members can send birthday cards to her at: 8811 Eldorado Pkwy, #4115 Frisco, Texas 75033

Sunday, Oct. 3

Noble was taken off of the ventilator on Sunday, Oct. 3. Noble’s sister, Myriah Noble, said they hope to move Noble to the rehabilitation facility by the end of the week.

“In order to move to the rehab facility, we really need for her lungs to remain strong and for her to start eating again,” Myriah said on social media. “The nurses and staff have been really amazing here, but Makayla is ready to move on to the next phase and start working towards her recovery.”

Monday, Oct. 4

Myriah announced on social media that Noble’s left lung partially deflated and she was put back on the ventilator on Monday, Oct. 4. They installed a feeding tube for nutrition into her lungs and also put a tracheotomy tube in to suction her lungs and keep the left lung from drooping.
