 Update on Trey....   12/31/2021

So many people have been lifting Trey up in prayer and every single one of the prayers have been appreciated.  There is POWER in prayer and I am so thankful for all you prayer warriors.

Trey has a long ways to go, but Praise the Lord that he is alive and slowly recovering.  He had a couple of Doctor appointments this week and we now know a little bit more about his recovery time.  His orthopedic Doctor said he could not put any weight on his right leg for at least 3 to 4 weeks.  The Doctor ordered another MRI to rule out something else going on with his hip.  

The next day he saw the wound care Doctor.  The Doctor was not happy with the way the cut was looking and for this reason, Trey is going to have to have surgery to repair this leg and a couple of grafts to help correct the damage that has been done.  This should also help with the healing process.  

Hopefully he will be able to stand and see the Back Doctor within a month or two.  Right now, he is sleeping in a recliner and can only move (with help) to the wheel chair, where he can sit with his back brace on for about 30 min at a time.  

Please continue to pray for Trey.  We know the healing process is going to take several months, which means that Shanda is going to have to be off work during this time.  The great thing is, God is in control.   HE is in control of Trey's healing, of Shanda having to be off work, of physical needs, emotional needs and financial needs.  

Happy New Year's to each of you.   I'm ready for 2022!!

 It's Christmas week and I want to take this time to wish you all a Merry Christmas.  

As you can see in my header photo, I have posted a picture of our youngest grandson.  Trey was in a bad car accident two weeks ago tonight.  He was thrown from the truck and a portion of the truck landed on top of him.  We are very Thankful that he is alive.  Thank you Lord.

I'm sure that those who are friends with me on Facebook, have been keeping up with his progress.  He is home, but is not able to stand.  He is in a lift chair and sleeps in a recliner.  We are super Thankful for NO head injury, however, he has multiple injuries in the rest of his body.

He has two messed up shoulders, broken ribs, had a dislocated hip which is now back in place, two fractures in his back, and a huge (over 60 stitches) cut on his leg.  

He is unable to stand, due to the hip, the cut and the fractures in his back.  Looking at possibly 8 weeks before he can stand.  Shanda has had her hands full, taking care of meds, blood thinner shots, and making sure Trey's pain level is controlled.   His dad and brother  have to help him move from the wheel chair to the potty chair and back to the recliner.    215 pounds is a little too much for our small Shanda to handle.  

So many people have been praying for him, and we have seen some improvement.  There is great Power in Prayer. I would just ask each of you to pray and to specifically pray for his back and his cut on the leg.  We are praying for healing of the back and NO infection in the leg.  

Needless to say, the month of December has gone by fast and my mind has been far from gifts and Christmas cooking.  It has taken all of us (his family) to keep things running smooth and to keep him comfortable.  

Trey has had a good attitude even with all the pain and trauma.  He is a great young 18 year old man.

I do hope each of you enjoy your families this Christmas Season and that your lives will be rich in God's love.
