UPDATE:

The battle isn’t over but the war is being won. He has been moved to a rehabilitation hospital and the insurance has approved one week. He said that the doctor who is over his care estimates two weeks, but it may be a struggle to get him to stay that long. He has been gone since April 2 and it’s now May 4. I’m praying that he will stay as long as he needs. I will trust his decision as he knows his body better than anyone. His body looks so frail and broken. He has lost between 30-40 lbs and he wasn’t overweight to start. He is a strong warrior though and I know the day will come that I can look back on this as not a closed chapter, because he will be a changed man, but as the end of a chapter in a long book.
Psalm 91: 9 If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
What a tender and loving description. How blessed I’ve been to see this happen to my son and to feel carried by angels and your prayers. How I love you all!

Give me a little time and I promise to answer all of you dear sweet friends who have taken the time to pray and send your love and hugs for recovery. We are moving forward steadily. The last 2 days have been extremely difficult for him with having pain and then pushing himself as far as he could humanly go to try and get better.
He is also in a place where stroke victims and folks with brain injuries are in rehabilitation and his heart is breaking for them.

He sounds as loving and caring as his parents. A child of God for sure, to have compassion for others, whilst going through dark valleys yourself.
You don't have to take time to answer us...we know what it means to you... just hearing how he is, is enough.
We love you and right now want you to take time for him and YOU.

His mother-in-law stays with them at night. She works during the day and his wife stays with the children then while I'm with my son during the day. Wifey also stays at night and gets up early to get home to take the children to school so as to keep their schedules as normal as they can be at this point.

I am so thankful that he has started to turn the corner. Continuing to lift him and your entire family up in prayer. With all the antibiotics, I am also praying that he will not have to fight another bug called C-diff. It is a good bug in the colon but can go haywire with all the antibiotics he is receiving. My dad came down with it about a month after being in hospital for infections. They said that he probably had it longer but no one caught it until it had invaded his entire large intestine requiring it being removed. I know you have so much on your mind right now but please ask what the signs are to be watching for. It too can be treated if caught soon enough. Hugs.

Dear Jerrilyn, I know we are so far ahead of you with regards to time, so I'm hoping that things are looking better for your son since your last update. I pray for you, your husband, family and your son every day and I know that he is being upheld by many people from all over the world.
Psalm 91 has beautiful imagery and I often refer to it as I truly feel that when we are upheld in prayer that God's loving arms lift us up like Eagle's wings wrapping around us, bringing us peace, safety and security. May your son know and feel the tangible love enveloping him. Love, prayers and blessings to you all Chris

Sunday,day 9. Had 2 surgery on Wednesday, I guess I forgot to update. My brain 🧠 has been in some crazy places as far as time is concerned. We’ve seen the doctor and are going back to CT scan to determine whether another surgery is required to revove yet more tissue that isn’t recovering. Of course we are still in intensive care. I’m reading each sweet message you leave and will answer each when time permits. I’m unbelievably busy caring for his needs. When you think of us, whisper a prayer. No matter what happens, God has his hand on this. Big love!
