These last 6 months have been wonderful seeing Michael come around to his normal thinking patterns and wonderful sense of humor. Although, his wrist still bothers him in the cold, the doctor gave him the go ahead to use it as he felt he needs to. If it gives him pain, don’t use it, but other than that the healing of the bones look good. Michael lost his old glasses recently, and had to get new ones. His vision changed slightly, but he needed new glasses anyway. It’s really great to have our son back. What a blessing he is.
Michael was given the OK to start using his wrist, as long as he monitors the pain. So as long as there isn’t pain, he should be able to start using the wrist in a more normal way. Michael tripped at work this week and fell on both his wrists, but praise to the Lord it seems he was not re-injured. His boss decided he would see how Michael would do on the machines, so has assigned him full time this week to run a machine. We are so grateful for the care and love Michael’s bosses have shown. This kind of work environment can be hard to find, but God is faithful, and we praise Him for showing Michael where to go. Merry Christmas to you all.
A quick update from Michael. Merry Christmas everyone.
We are enjoying having Michael back with us and know the miraculous recovery he has made. He has mastered most of his old facial expressions, and his playfulness is back. He does love a good joke, or just to pull your leg. He is really loving all this ice and pulled his quad out to have some fun pulling his niece and nephew around on the ice. The kids thought sledding would be a blast, but it was so cold we couldn’t get them to do it more than once. On a serious note, we have learned the young man who was driving the other car is not dealing well with this accident. Please pray for his healing as you did for Michael. The devil is attacking this young man and he needs all the prayer we can give him to be strong and find his way. God is faithful, and hears all. Stay warm and happy Sabbath.
What a blessing and joy it is to have Michael with us during this holiday. A true miracle and gift from our Heavenly Father, the creator of all heaven and earth. I pray that today you will feel the warmth and love God has for each of you. May you have a blessed day.
Happy Sabbath! This week Michael was going in to his work for a couple of hours a day, and the boss says his technical memory seems to be there. They will continue to work with Michael and see how much work information he has retained. It has been a struggle for Michael to gain his strength, and going to work every day has wore him out. We realize this will be a slow process and we are grateful Radius HD is willing to work with us on his recovery process. They are so wonderful, and I pray God will continue to bless their business.
Met with Mark Spillman and his family this morning. What a wonderful God fearing family. He and Michael had a great conversation and we were given a few more little pieces of the puzzle, as to what happened after the accident. We understand the young man driving the other car (Samuel) was very upset and we are asking you to pray that God will give him the peace he needs to deal with all of this. We do not blame this young man, and feel that if the shoe were on the other foot, we would be just as worried for him as our son, as we feel his parents are for him. Please do not forget him when you pray. From the very beginning God placed people who were gifted with the skills Michael would require in a position to use their skills to help save Michael’s life. There must be a purpose for all of this and this helps our faith to grow.
On September 25th our world as we knew it changed. Our son Michael was in a terrible motorcycle accident. A Constable (so far unknown) was first on the scene and used his car to block traffic and protect Michael as he lay in the road. Quickly after that an off duty North Richland Hills fireman (Mark Spillman) showed up and began rendering first aid. Next, an off duty fire chief, Jonathan Peacock, from Weatherford battalion 2, going home from work, came upon the scene in the traffic behind Michael. Jonathan took a commanding role and coordinated needed emergency services. This included Clint, a volunteer from the Silver Creek Fire Department no more than a block down the road from the scene of the accident, CareFlight LifeCare Medic 21 helicopter, and a local DPS officer, Trooper Peterson. Though they may not have known it, God’s providence placed all of these people quickly on the scene to take good care of our son. We thank the Lord Jesus for all the care He has provided so far and will continue to lean on Him for His miraculous care.
Michael went to see the orthopedic doctor today and was told everything is healing like it is suppose to. He has been given the OK to start exercising his wrist to make it stronger. We are hoping this will help some with the pain. He is getting around a lot better and becoming more active. Memory and speech seems to be healed up. He just doesn’t talk very loud because the vocal cords are still not what they should be, the respirator can cause damage to the vocal cords so we are giving this more time. We love you Michael.
