I couldn't sleep last night - I received a call from a neighbor, her 45 year old husband fell out of a tree, and crushed his 7th vertebrae and it sliced the spinal cord.
This means Chris will be paralyzed for life.
I do believe in miracles and I am asking everyone to please please say a special prayer asking for a miracle.
This couple has had the worst luck of anyone I have ever known. They were uprooted from California where they both had successful careers by her mother who needed help taking care of her father. Well, her Mom died of cancer a few years back and her dad is near incapacitated now.
They have both struggled just trying to find work.
He finally actually found work he loved, manual labor, and now this. My prayer is for "a doctor" to see something that no one else sees and somehow save this young man.
I know it is a slim chance - but miracles do still happen and they can certainly use one.
I will update as soon as I hear again - won't be until next week.
Well, my DH saw Becky today and Chris will be paralyzed permanently from the waist down. I am not a doctor or nurse - sometimes the miracle is not all we hope for. But they still have each other and Praise the Lord it isn't total paralysis.
We thank everyone for the prayers offered up for this courageous couple.
