An update today on Holland....... Although she has fractured four vertebrae, none are displaced. They feel that the numbness was caused by a spinal cord "shock" and her feelings are slowly returning. There has been no swelling overnight which is wonderful news as it appears that she will fully recover use of her arms and legs. The recovery road will be long, but with the good news received today it will make life much easier on all of them.
I know all of your prayers were heard and welcomed. Thank you so very much. Please continue to keep them in your prayers and I will update you if anything changes.
.....who are prayer warriors, your help is needed for a friend and a neighbor to our son. While riding her horse last evening, Holland was pitched a la Christopher Reeves style and landed on her head. She was wearing her helmet, but has fractured four vertebrae in her neck. There is numbness in her body, but she is feeling pain stimulation so we are holding out hope that she will not be paralyzed. We will hopefully know more later today.
To make matters worse, Holland is also the primary caregiver to her husband who is extremely ill with lung and brain cancer. My heart is breaking for both of them and any prayers would be greatly appreciated by them.
