Thanks for the prayers for my brother..

Monday, November 16, 2009

I want to thank all of my friends for the prayers for my brother Bill. He is in a nursing home now and has a trach, a feeding tube and cannot talk or swallow yet. Hopefully he will again someday. It will take his brain time to heal. I don't know how much it will heal. that is up to God. He knows us and smiles and nods yes or no to many things. Some things he does not understand or remember. His short term memory is gone...he does good with long term though... He cannot walk but maybe when they get him healthier he will walk again. He still has two bullets in his face and the one in his brain exploded from the occipital area into the cerebellum... We are blessed he is even still alive. I know God kept him a live for a reason so I am waiting to know the reason and what to do next for my brother... Tomorrow I go to social security to file for his early retirement but that too will take a while. It has only been 7 months since he was shot so I still have a lot of hope for his recovery. Please keep up the prayers.. and I will keep you updated as things change. God bless, Dotty

    I am so sorry to hear about this difficulty you have been facing with your brother. What a horrible tragedy. But there is always room for improvement. I am currently interning at a nursing home and we have seen a lot of residents improve so much with time and patience. He is very lucky to have such a devoted and caring sister. Best wishes to you and your family.

How fast things happen

Friday, November 13, 2009

BIllys son Chaz will be coming in December to see him...That will be great for Bill and I hope Chaz is ok with seeing his dad in this condition. It is hard to se a man who once was so active, now lying in a nursing home bed with a trach, feeding tube and mitts on. Bill only weighs 113 lbs at 6'1". Chaz has not seen his dad for several years now. He does know about his condition and that he had been shot in the head three times but seeing is different than hearing about it. Please pray Chaz can handle this emotionally. He is a sweet smart boy and graduates this year from college. We are very proud of him. This has been a terrible thing for our entire family to go through but most of all our Billy. It is hard on his children and his siblings but mostly on his 88 year old Mother who lives with me. She goes up to se him almost everytime that I go. Billy know us and loves to see Momma. She holds his hand and he just seems to be totaly comforted by her touch. We never forget the touch of Momma's hands do we? God bless each of you and cherish your loved ones because they could be gone tomorrow in a second. Inonly 5 seconds and 3 gunshots, Billys life changed forever.
