Hard Pill to Swallow

Blindness, paralysis, limb immobility, cerebral fluid leakage, multiple future surgies, even death . . . all possibilities tomorrow.

He may never be able to hold Ryanne again.

I may never be able to hear his voice again.

He may never be able to see Ryanne or I again.

He may not be able to walk again.

It's a hard pill to swallow to think these are all possibilities with his surgery tomorrow.

The cost of treating someone with a spinal cord injury at age 25 (close to Trey's age) is approximately $730,000 over his lifetime, not including the possibility that he may not ever be able to work again.

I'm giving it all to God. Our future is in his hands.

He knows the road before us, and I trust that he knows what Trey and I can handle and has a plan for us.

Please keep Trey and the surgeons in your prayers tomorrow as he goes through his surgery. There is so much at risk, but with prayer I have faith that Trey will make it through wonderfully.


For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. ~ Jeremiah 29:11

Lord, YOU are the Great Physician. Please guide the hands of the surgeons, anesthesiologists and nurses before, during, and after Trey's surgery. We know You can heal him without their help, but please use them in his journey to a full recovery. Give Trey and Leah peace, rest, and strength.
In the name of Jesus, Amen
