The Omaha World-Record also has an excellent article on Alexis Verzal. Link

You can see it in her shining blue eyes as she navigates the halls of Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital - always the center of attention, just as she likes it.

You can hear it in her voice, so full of energy, as a 2-year-old's is meant to sound.

Friday marks one year since Alexis Verzal, the daughter of Nebraskans Brandon and Tiffany Verzal, suffered life-threatening brain hemorrhages.

The injuries, according to a police report, occurred at her day care in College Station, Texas.Texas authorities believe medical evidence suggests that Alexis' injuries were consistent with shaken baby syndrome.Her daycare provider was arrested last June and charged with injury to a child, a first-degree felony punishable by up to 99 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Meanwhile, Alexis pushes forward.

The subject of a World-Herald story last May after her transfer to Lincoln's renowned Madonna center, Alexis continues to make unexpected and consistent progress.
