Please join with us in prayer. Dr. Mark is in a fight for his life. We received bad news from the Surgeon. The last MRI and EEG showed that there was relatively no brain function. The stroke that was caused by the bleeding was located in the center of his brain stem. As a result information is not able to be received or delivered to the rest of his brain. Below the stroke simple functions like breathing and cough are there, but nothing above the stroke is working. However the worst is that Most importantly the stroke is located directly where the “wake-up” function of our brain is. The surgeon has seen this type of injury before and has never seen any one wake up from the coma. He told us my dad is in a deep coma and will not return. We need you to call out his name in prayer. Tomorrow we will have one final test. They will attach electrodes to his head and feet and see if the signal gets through.
This the entire family would like you to pray…Please pray for a clear direction for us. The decsion ahead of us is too difficult for any of one us to decide. Please pray for our family, we realize today we are the legacy of a man that was and is truly a good and faithful servant. His wife, Anne,His daughters and sons Kari, Kijsa, Whitney, Mark And Stephen. His grandchildren denton, Zach, Whitney, Westleigh, Talia, Keaton. Isla, Champe and Eli and finally Pray that God would be glorified through our family. That the staff and doctors would see God through us.
One of the last conversations i had with my dad he said “these are the days that will define a man” That is the truth. today tell someone you love them because we realize now that time is limited…
As I write this it is pouring on the cape. It is as if the very tears of heaven are joining our family as we celebrate the legacy before us.
We Love you dad
