Hello everyone! I am hoping this blog will help me to communicate with all of you and give you the most current and accurate information I have.
First of all, thank you so very much for all the support and prayers! They are helping me immensely and I appreciate each and every one one of them. They are helping me hold up and keep it together. I am not leaning on my own strength but relying on God's and it is good.
Where to begin... I guess I will just start with the facts and where we are at right now. On Tuesday, Terry and I were at our old house in Hermiston cleaning up a few things in order to sell it. Terry fell off the roof or the ladder, I was not by him so I am unsure of exactly what happened. When he fell he landed on our concrete driveway possibly hitting his truck first and then the concrete. The fall caused various injuries but the most concerning one is a sub dermal hematoma on his left front temporal lobe. We were flown to Legacy Manual in Portland and were in surgery within minutes of landing.
Terry is now recovering in ICU. He is semi-unconscious, however he is very determined - as a result the staff at the hospital have had to restrain his wrists as well as place a strap across his chest. They placed a feeding tube in him this afternoon, which allows them to place pain medication directly into his stomach. This is good because they should be able to turn off the last narcotic that he is on. The tube did not quite reach it's intended destination, so it cannot be used to feed him yet, but tomorrow they will try again to place it in the right place.
That is where we are at right now. The hospital staff has been wonderful and I am staying with family now that live only 15 minutes away from the hospital. Family and friends are taking care of things at home so I am being well taken care of. Please continue to pray!
