moving forward

navigating through the life that was and moving into the life that is

Saturday – 10:00 PM

on November 19, 2011

We were able to take Alana and Cameron to see Sandra twice today. The kids really enjoyed seeing mom and Sandra was overjoyed to see them. Sandra has made so much progress in the last 48 hours that you would think she could go home today if it wasn’t for her physical injuries. Her conversation is almost normal with only slight lapses of memory.

The contrast between she and Glen is almost heartbreaking. We are so glad for Sandra and so sad that Glen seems to have made almost no progress by comparison. We all need to know that Glen is going to be OK too and just haven’t received much encouragement from the doctors. On the plus side, he is out of the RotoProne and in a regular bed and his breathing has improved. They are taking him off the paralytics as he is not in the RotoProne and he does not need to be kept immobile. It takes up to 36 hours for the paralytics to be completely out of his system. Then we should be able to get a better read on his mental condition.

Keep the prayers coming their way!

    So happy for Sandra and the kids!!! I am so sorry about Glen not having as much success at this point. We will continue to pray hard for him…sometimes the body and mind just need time. Lifting you all up in prayer tonight! Hugs and love!

    My thoughts and prayers are with all of you, as you mourn the loss of Glen. My kids were friends with Tom Meeker and Sandy Meeker during their years in East Grand Rapids, and I just heard about the terrible auto accident. My heart goes out to Cindy and Doug and all of the family.

    God Bless,
    Gwen Wallin (Mom to Michael, PJ, and Carley Wallin)
