BOISE — A Wallowa woman who was lost in the woods near her home for a week in late October remains in serious but stable condition after undergoing amputations last week.

Mischelle Hileman, 39, who lost both legs below the knees as a result of frostbite, is expected to have skin graft surgery this week.

Hileman was found on Nov. 3 after spending eight days in a freezing mountain canyon, nine miles northeast of Wallowa. She had fallen and injured her leg while hunting and was unable to hike out of Alder Creek canyon.

Last week her parents expressed appreciation for all the support they have received, including donations "from people we've never heard of in Colorado and Wyoming," her father Benny Hileman said.

Support has continued from Eastern Oregon and the Hilemans' hometown. Kathy Wolfe Lewis of Boise served the family a Thanksgiving feast at St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center, where Hileman is recovering. It was but the latest of several meals provided by the former Wallowa native.

The Wallowa Mountain Quilters Guild will be raffling a quilt to benefit Hileman, who has no insurance.

The hand-made churn-dash design quilt is on display at the Country Quilter in Enterprise. Tickets at $1 are available there, at Savoy's Specialties, The Uncommon Thread and elsewhere.

Contributions can also be made to an account in Hileman's name at any Community Bank branch.

Well wishes can be sent to St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center, 1055 N. Curtis Road, Boise, ID 83706.
