Saturday Sept 12

Dear Friends,
Tina & I have been overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and encouragement that has been shown to us. We are doing as well as can be expected under the circumstances. Micah is doing better than he was when first admitted to Jackson General. However he is not showing as much progress as the doctors are looking for. He is still unconscious. He is breathing a lot on his own but the ventilator has to stay hooked up to help him. We put our trust in the Lord and look to Him for healing. Our God is able to do exceeding abundantly more than we ask or think. We ask that you continue to pray for us. However we kindly request you not make any trips to Vanderbilt unless we need you to. He is still in intensive care and there are limitations to visiting. We are trying to keep Micah in an environment we feel is most beneficial for him. We really appreciate you and are grateful for all you are doing for us. When we have some news that can be shared we will put that out. We are sending emails out to a few people who will pass it on to everyone else. As of now we watch and pray.

Thomas & Tina

    Thomas and Tina,

    Meg and I have been praying for Micah every day. We are overwhelmed with a sense of peace that God is going to restore him. We will be in Nashville this coming weekend, if there is anything you need let us know.

  5. you both are mapping out so sensitively "the interface of grief and grace", as Packer pens it...thank you for your transparency...and your faith.

  6. Wonderful blessing to see you today and hear of your faith being stengthend through this ordeal.
    Reminds me of the sermon I once heard you preach about us being sheep and when we are at a loss for words the shepherd just needs to hear us say "baaa" and He will come running.
    Love and blessings from the Roby family.
