Thank you for praying for Nicki. Sorry, I've been out of touch the last few days. Lots going on, obviously.

Nicki is headed into surgery as I type this. 8:00 AM CST to repair/set his broken pelvic cradle and hip. The doctors strongly believe his lack of responsiveness is in most part due to the immense pain he is suffering. They hope once this surgery is complete, he will be in less pain and more responsive. FYI, they predict 8 hours in surgery with a good number more hours in recovery.

The tracheostomy is moving ahead to preserve his vocal chords and larnx. The longer he is intubated through his throat, the most damage to his vocal tract.
Ok..thanks again for praying & inquiring. Makes a world of difference to know there are believers in agreement for healing, restoration and salvation.

I am just catching up on the e-mail that I missed over the past extended weekend.

Please know that we have prayed and will continue to pray for your step-brother and the whole family.

God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we are able to ask or think.

Love and Prayers,
