Patrick says Hilary is in stable condition, and he anticipates she will be taken from the ICU to a regular room soon. "At this point, we're just so grateful for my sister and everyone's prayers that they've sent out for her," he says. "She wouldn't have been able to survive without them. And we also send out our deepest condolences to all those that are injured and dead."

As her body continues to mend, Patrick says his sister talks about the shootings "a little bit," but his family's main concern is getting Hilary well again. "We're trying to keep happy thoughts right now and we're trying to get her just to focus on herself and get back to health before we really start to reflect on the incident," he says.
