Prayer Update on Ben!

Yesterday, I recieved this email update on Ben.  Would you please continue to keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

"A few of you have asked to hear how Ben is doing and how he has responded

to his surgery.
It is still too early to tell. The spine surgeon states it was a success,
which means that the titanium rods will support his back. We were hoping
that the back surgery would reduce swelling around his spinal cord and that
he would regain feeling in his stomach and legs. That hasn't happened yet.

A combination of the head trauma and the sedatives and painkillers and
anti-psychotics make it impossible to guage how much Ben understands what
is going on inside Ben's head. We see glimmers of hope but we just won't
know much for another two weeks or more. It may take longer than that.

We ask you to pray that we are patient with the hospital and with Ben's
progress. We also ask for wisdom regarding the selection of a rehab
hospital. And let's not forget to pray for a miracle. We would love to see
Ben walk again.

We, as a family, feel uplifted by your prayers. Thank you."
John and Francette
