This week

We had our breakfast on Tuesday morning while watching some deer out by the pond. This is the only good picture I could get that morning. Then when we all arrived back home that afternoon, we found these sweet little babies out there playing.

Close Call

The week that we got the new car, Brian waxed it on the weekend and then the Monday after, this is what happened.
A little storm with heavy rain and wind blew through. This fan was in the window in the garage. As I ran out to close the windows, the fan flew out of the window, out of the socket and this is where it landed. It did not touch the car, but you can see how close it was to slamming into it! I would have been so mad!

Update on Jerred

He has been moved out of critical care to the 9th floor. Staying another day. Doctor's think that would be beneficial to him. Does not have to wear the neck brace for 6 weeks like they thought. Took that off today. He does also have a small fracture in his skull. Should be going home tomorrow.

Just spoke with Cheryl. Jerred is off the ventilator and is talking and drinking. Still in alot of pain. They want to get him up walking today with the possibility of going home tomorrow. Praise God for his many blessings!


From yesterday: The doctors said that Jerred is doing better, but still has a rough road ahead. His left lung in severely bruised and he has a broken shoulder blade, several broken ribs, and a small laceration on his spleen. The main concern is his lungs. He is still on the ventilator and they put in a feeding tube. He is responding well, giving thumbs up, and writing notes.

This morning: Brian, Taylor, and I went up again last night to see him. He looks good. He squeezed my hand and I did get a little smile out of him. It still hurts my heart so badly to see him like that. You can tell he is still in some pain, and is very frustrated with all the tubes. Still has some fever. Taylor did not go in to see him the first night, but was very glad that he did last night. They wrote notes back and forth.

Talked to Cheryl first thing this morning and he is still doing well. They hope to get him off the ventilator today. Cheryl did finally get a little rest last night!!! Please, Please continue to keep them in your prayers. He is not out of the woods yet.

Also, my sister-in-law, Missy, lost her mother early this morning. Please pray for her and for my niece and nephew, Emily and Evan. They were at our house yesterday afternoon and all night last night. My other niece, Amanda, came over to stay with them last night while we went up to see Jerred.

Terrible storm came through last night and the electricity was off for over 8 hours.

It has been a LONG week already!

Urgent Prayer Request

One of my very best friends' son, Jerred Hembree (who is also my oldest son's very best and longtime friend) was in an accident with a vehicle while on his bike late this afternoon. He is in critical care at Vanderbilt. Please pray for him as well as his mother and father, Cheryl and Jerry Hembree.
