In August, I wrote about my brother-in-law Lance.
I asked you all for prayers and I have updated and continue to seek prayers for him on my Facebook page.
It has been an incredibly LONG and difficult 3 months for Lance and my sister Erin and will likely continue to be a very long road to recovery.
Lance was in the hospital for the first two months off and on, fighting infection after infection,
and has finally been stable enough to remain in rehab and is starting to make incredible progress.
When he first had his aneurysm he nearly died.
A few times.
He was on many machines to keep him alive and the outlook was very grim.
But, as time has ticked away,
Lance has amazed all of us with his drive and dedication.
He just wants to get better and go home.
It’s his prayer and it’s our prayer for him.
During the time he’s been in the hospital,
he has missed the birth of his new niece,
his son Ryder‘s first birthday,
and recently, Ryder’s first steps.
We’re all hopeful he can be home for Christmas and the new year.
But it will only happen if their home can be prepared for his arrival.
They will need to widen doors, add ramps, make at least one bathroom handicap accessible
and without donations it can’t be done.
My sister is a hair stylist.
Lance was the main breadwinner
and they didn’t plan for something like this happening.
They are in their thirties and so unprepared for life being turned upside-down.
And now they are trying to face it head on and changing every plan they ever made for their future
and just feeling so very fortunate that they have any future at all.
(Funny how nearly dying will do that to you.)
Please watch this video my sister Beth, Erin’s twin, made.
Take a moment and realize how very fortunate you are,
hug the ones you love,
and if you can
Many blessings to you and yours.
and if you are able donate
