The Myers family from Versailles, previously trapped in Houston, Texas at Texas Children's Hospital by the rising waters, is now on their way home to Ohio.
The family had been there for multiple surgeries for their 9-year-old son Aiden. They arrived August 8 for evaluation and had two surgeries, the last one last Friday — then the storm hit.
After being released from the hospital, Houston residents directed the family to two open roads out of the area.
Hurricane Harvey made landfall just as Aiden Myrers underwent neurosurgery at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston.
Myers has a rare genetic disease called Tuberous Sclerosis Complex or TSC, which causes tumors to grow in many of his organs.
The surgery to possibly end them had them make the long drive to Texas Children's Hospital in Houston before the storm hit.
"Friday as the hurricane was making landfall, Dr. (Howard) Weiner performed surgery on Aiden, removed a couple of the tumors from the frontal lobe of his brain to finally control his seizures," said Myers.
"At that time, Houston wasn't really getting hit that hard. It was raining but no flooding," added Myers.
"Dr. Weiner did get here Saturday morning to check on Aiden, and Saturday night we went to bed and woke up the next morning, it was flooded. The roads out here are impassable,” Myers said.
The Myers' have three other young children at home in Versailles that started school this week.
But it's not their family they were worried about. "We are not struggling with the flood, our hearts are with the people, the staff taking care of us here at Texas Children's. They may not have a home to go to, we do in Ohio."
She asked Ohioans to show Texans their support. “If there is anyone in Ohio that can supply food, clothing, supplies, please do that, they need it down here," said Myers.
She described the images she saw in Houston, and the view out her son's hospital window.
