Update: He is now awake! Within the first hour, despite being under heavy sedatives still, he recognizes her, understands commands, and is even showing humor! I am so, so happy for them!
In just one instant, our lives can change so dramatically.
My close friend, Vicky, who is serving in the Marines in Hawaii, had to take an emergency flight to Seattle yesterday because her husband fell on concrete and had a serious brain bleed. He’s had major surgery and the doctors are waiting to see if he’ll wake up.
He is 29 years old, and they’ve been married for less than two years.
I am looking at my life in a whole new way today. Who cares if dishes are left in the sink or money is a little tight this month? I have my husband home and healthy, and that makes me the luckiest girl in the world.
Please send your prayers and good thoughts to Vicky, so that she has her husband home and healthy very soon, too. And consider sending someone a card or a letter to tell them how much they mean to you. Life is too short to leave things unsaid.
