Robbie has made progress today. They are baby steps, but they are steps in the right direction. His ventilator tube was removed which has made him more comfortable. He is not in excruciating pain, but is in major discomfort right now. His wound is doing ok and they are continuing to keep it clean and infection-free. This is still our top prayer request. He also got his “tortoise shell” brace today that fits around his torso area to stabilize his back injury. As for the kidney, he spoke with the urologist today before I arrived and was told that they are going to give it the chance to repair itself and hopefully -another prayer item-regain function.
Robbie is very tired and sleeping most of the day. He has been through so much, but has come so far. God is amazing us with His grace and provision for each step of this very painful journey.
I feel so inadequate to express my gratitude for the amount of love and support we have received. It is truly overwhelming. Please know that we ask God to bless all of you for the love you are showing to our family.
I also just want to publicly thank our sweet friend, Stuart Reid. Stuart was riding with Robbie Tuesday morning when the accident happened and also suffered some minor injuries. If Stuart had not been with him that morning, I can’t imagine where we would be right now. I am so grateful for how he took care of him while they waited for the ambulance and went to the hospital. He and his wife Michelle have been our lifelines and we love & appreciate them so much.
Thanks again. Please continue to pray as Robbie’s long, hard road to recovery begins. The kids are doing well and pray for Daddy all the time. God has been good to us and we give Him all the glory and honor.
P.S. Some of you (you know who you are 🙂 ) will be happy to know that I finally ate some soup tonight. Thanks for taking care of me.
