The 19-year-old UMD student who spent a night on a front porch in below zero temperatures underwent amputations Monday, according to the family's Caring Bridge website.

Alyssa Lommel's mother, Terri, writes that surgery went well, but said that Alyssa ended up "losing the tips of her toes on one foot, so she has little nubs yet, which will help greatly for balance and walking, but the other foot they had to take just below the ball of her foot. She should be able to walk fine with inserts in her shoes."

Terri Lommel said there is still concern with the Alyssa's heels, and that they are more damaged than initially thought.

According Terri, Alyssa "wants to get this all done and move on." She writes that Alyssa knows the quicker they do things the quicker she can go home.
