Sunday , Sept 13th 1:20pm

Some good news. Micah is on a trial run to see if he can breathe on his own. He is still hooked up to the ventilator but he is breathing all by himself! Praise God. His vital signs are all positive. The MRI results are showing some damage to both sides of his brain. It is hard to tell to what extent. His is still in the first 48-72 hr critical period. He wakes up and sleeps in different cycles through the day. He seems to respond to our voices. Sometimes he will look right at me when I ask him to and other times he does not. But overall he seems to respond to our voices. He is not moving any parts of his body voluntarily other than his eyes. Still we have great reason to be encouraged. Two days ago he was totally unconscious and could not breathe at all. Today he is awake and breathing on his own.! We pray that God will restore his brain and body to function fully.
All three of us got some rest last night. Tina and I are much refreshed. We feel all your prayers. We are at peace and not agitated. The Lord impressed me yesterday to walk the ward and pray for the rest of the patients and I am doing that. We are so blessed to see our family, 'The Church', taking care of us.
"He is able to do exceeding abundantly more than we can ask or think" Glory be to God!

  17. Thomas and Tina,
    The scripture in Romans "...We know that for those who love God all things work together for good" has been reverberating though my mind. I can see already how God is using Micah's tragedy to minister to so many people. Your witness is an inspriaation to all OF US. He (Micah) has opened the door for you to share Jesus with so many. Paul says that we are to rejoice in our sufferings, which is one of the most difficult things to do, but we see you doing it. We are lifting Micah and his family in prayer continually. May you "experience" the peace of God which passes all understanding.

  18. Know that Micha and the whole family have been in my thoughts and prayers. GOD IS GOOD and will take care of those who trust in his love of each of us. Continue to be strong if your faith. Mary Lou Climer
