12.06.10 – Update

Peter is still at Baylor and is about to finish his stay there after his ankle surgery nearly a month ago. Right now the plan is for Pete to come home Friday, but we are praying that he will progress to the next level of consciousness so that he can stay and have formal rehab.

Today they are taking Peter’s leg casts off and fitting him for new braces. Earlier this week they also fit Peter for a new mouth guard which will help protect his teeth since he grinds them so much.

The neuro psychologist has told us that they’re seeing a wider breadth of responses from Peter, but the responses aren’t consistent enough for him to go to rehab. Overall though, Pete seems to slowly be becoming more aware.

Here are the things that you can pray for:

1) That Peter will be able to stay for formal rehab.

2) Pray that Peter’s language will be restored. This is something we have been praying for a lot recently not only so that he will be able to understand us when we talk to him, but so that someday he will be able to talk to us again.

3) Pray for our continued strength and trust in the Lord. This is a long slow, roller coaster ride, and we sometimes can’t help but battle weariness on every level.

4) Pray for our physical health and strength as we prepare for Peter’s return home.

5) Pray that God would use the people who are helping Peter to encourage him. There are days when Peter looks really discouraged and frustrated that he can’t communicate with us. Pray that God would give him comfort and strengthen his faith.

We appreciate your continued intercession on Peter’s behalf, and apologize that the updates have been so sporadic.

For the family,
Hope

    precious family…holding you up to God and believe your post/update are proof God is working…
    and wanting you to rest…

    per John Piper…battling anxiety
    Psalm 56:3 says, “When I am afraid, I put my trust in thee.” Notice: it does not say, “I never struggle with fear.” Fear strikes and the battle begins. So the Bible does not assume that true believers will have no anxieties. Instead the Bible tells us how to fight when they strike.

    1 Peter 5:7 says, “Cast all your anxieties on him, for he cares about you.” It does NOT say, you will never feel any anxieties to cast onto God. It says, when the mud splatters your windshield and you lose temporary sight of the road and start to swerve in anxiety, turn on your wipers and squirt your windshield washer.
