Ian’s surgery got bumped to tomorrow morning. I guess there were emergency cases that took precedence. His neuro condition is the same. He continues to move fingers and toes, to blink and to respond various stimuli. He does not respond to commands.

Thank you for praying for a miracle…

We are praying for Ian and all of you! Thank you for the continued updates. I work in a hospital in radiology and when I heard about the accident I knew the implications of what had happened. But, it has only made me all the more excited to hear of your faith and to see God work a miracle in Ian's life. These verses came to mind as I've prayed for, and read about, you all.
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as we share abundantly in Christ's sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too." - 2 Corinthians 1:3-5
"We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and the love that you have for all the saints, because of the hope laid up for you in heaven." - Col 1:3-5 Your faith has been heard of all across the country and across that ICU. Thank you for your example! We will continue to pray in faith that God will work a miracle!

I wanted to thank all of you for sharing this experience with all of us. God is using this in wonderful ways. His people are becoming fervent in prayer - not just over Ian, but over everything. We have been reminded anew of how fragile we are as humans, how we are not God. We have been reminded of His tender mercies.

You are all fervently in our prayers. Thank you so much for your transperancy during this time. Thank you.

we pray for a miracle because we know the God who performs them...
and that's a miracle in of itself!
thank you for your faith -

Deuteronomy 10:21
He is your praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes.
