To everyone who sent cards, money, food, gifts and most importantly prayers THANK YOU. My family will never have enough words to tell you how greatful we are for friends and family like you. This is my first blog so bare with me.
Day 1- Kyle got up this morning and physical therapy helped him to a chair where he sat up for about an hr. He did really well, however he was in lots of pain after he got back to bed, which I guess is normal for someone with his kind of injury. They did lots of tests today and here are their concerns: First of all he is very dehydrated and is not putting out enough urine so we have really been trying to force fluids. Second his right foot seems to be really cold and pulses are weak so they are going to scan it in the Am to check for blood clots, pray its not! Finally his bowels do not seem to want to cooperate, hopefully that will come with time. As for his spirits they seem to be ok, not great but ok which is something we can work with. Tomorrow is more tests and they hope to get him up again after lunch. Pray his pain is less.
As for me, I am good, trying to stay strong for my family. These last few days have been trying but I know great things are coming I don't know what yet but I know god is good and he will make things ok. I am missing my kids, but I know they are in great hands with Kevin and Shelley, they have always loved my kids as if they were their own. I'm ok if Kyle is ok.
By the way the weather here is not as bad as I thought, kinda nice actually, still would rather be there with my family.
Love Erica M

  4. We are continuing to pray. Erica - I will say extra prayers for your Mommy heart. I can't imagine how hard it is knowing you need to be with Kyle but knowing that means being away from your kids. Kyle is blessed to have found someone as supportive as you. Praying for all of you.
