ANKENY (KWWL) -- An Iowa mother who was hospitalized for five months after a crash that killed two of her children, is finally home.

Troy DeJoode says his wife Heather returned to their Ankeny home last week.

Heather DeJoode spent four months in rehabilitation after the May 6th accident, that left her with a traumatic brain injury, along with pelvic and facial fractures.

She was in a coma for a month.

The DeJoodes' 5-month-old daughter Claire and 5-year-old son Carson died as a result of the accident.

Troy DeJoode says a third child, 3-year-old Chase, was injured but is doing well.
