Mikey’s update…..


Of course, he is always Mikey to me……exploratory surgery this morning did not find the nerve system they were looking for so at this point they have decided to let him heal from the wound and in a few months military neurosurgeons will work on the nerve damage from the M-16 bullet.  This was an accident during a.. rescue training exercise.  Thankfully, the doctors and helicopters were involved in the exercise so they got him to a trauma center via helicopter in 12 minutes.  The surgeon confirmed that one centimeter in any direction would have killed him. God has given his mom and dad a spirit of gratitude that even surprise the doctors……his parents credit it to the Chief Surgeon who is not yet done with Mikey (God!).  Thank you for your prayers….keep them up.
