I thought it might be helpful to let everyone know our updates by blogging. It's either that - or hiring a publicist. And since there is no time to interview applicants... we are blogging.
Sunday, December 5, 2010, we were awakened to one of those dreaded, middle of the night calls -- Nathan (our middle son) was in an altercation and fell, and hit his head. The words were, "he's been intubated" I knew instantly, we were in trouble. When we finally saw Nate, we were stunned by the tubes, the swollen head... and emotionless expression on our 26 year old's face. He has suffered a fractured skull and several small bleeds on the brain and spinal cord. There is some swelling in the brain, tomorrow there is a CT scan with contrast to see the extent of that. Over the past two days, numerous CT scans have been performed, medications have been modified, but until Nathan is able to follow simple commands, the tube will not be moved. Today we saw him open his eyes, and he has responded to my voice.
1. First and foremost, I want to see God glorified. Like Moses, I just want His presence, and I desire that others see it too! Someone once said "Id rather walk with You in a valley, than to dance on the mountain top alone!" He has not left us!
2. Pray that our Nathan is completely restored and healed.
3. Pray that lives are changed from the miracles they witness!
God desires to show us His glory; however, as He passes by, we must believe He is doing all He promised!
Stay tuned! I love you all!
