This is from an email I received today from Da Law's wife. I've paraphrased where necessary for privacy.
Quote:
Everyday Da Law makes a little progress. Today he was not biting the brush as often as before. It's not much, but it's progress in the forward direction. For me, these 3 weeks have seemed like an eternity. Last night I woke up to our youngest son crying for his daddy. I feel so helpless. Da Law has always been the rock for our family. I don't know if he ever knew how vital his role as husband and father is to us. I pray one day we'll be able to make him understand. Please ask all to continue to pray for Da Law's healing.
There are lessons for all of us here.

When you put on the uniform, slide the badge onto your belt, put the badge on its chain around your neck, before you walk out the door into that other world, tell those important to you how you feel. Don't let them have any doubts.

Please continue your prayers and views of this thread. It means a lot.

Stay safe...

Not only leave your loved ones without doubt about your love, but also ensure all the important life documents (life insurance beneficiaries, 401K beneficiaries, wills, bank accounts, investments, etc...) are properly filled out, filed and in place.

That's a good lesson for anyone, I know it well. I check this thread every day and send up prayers for DaLaw and his family.

Yes, very, very important.

Progress may be little. Nevertheless it is progress. May they continue to develop that trust in the G-d of our fathers, on the Rock Christ Jesus. And, by the Holy Spirit know that G-d is ever present.

All y'all's prayers, thoughts, good wishes, crossed fingers, they seem to be working.

Da Law tried to talk today.

Now, there is discussion among those of us who've been talking trash at times as to whether we want to hear all he has to say...but, at least he's trying.

Mrs. VR, thank you...

Good luck to your friend RussP. My heart goes out when a family man is stricken in such a way. It affects so many more than just him. My prayers are there.

Subject: Today

We are storm ready. Da Law was always working during the storms, so I am used to being alone. Actually his brother is still with us, so if the hurricane unleases Zombies, then I do have someone around who can shoot. But if the storm only knocks out power, then I have the generator ready.

Today... when I asked him my name, he said it. Then nothing for a long while. As I got ready to leave, I said, "Da Law, I love you." He replied, "I love you too." He added the word too. I left feeling more hopeful. Please continue to pray for his healing. I believe it's working.
Not much to add to that...

Thanks to all supporting us!!!

Well, the big change this day was relocation from one hospital to the rehab hospital for intensive help.

For the time being, Da Law will not be allowed visitors. I'll get updates from Mrs Da Law, and I will continue to send her the view count from here.

Please continue your prayers.

Checking back in. Please let the family know that we're pulling for them.

And remind the Mrs. that she can't help anymore if she turns herself into a casualty. Make sure she's taking care of herself. It'll help Da Law, too. I know you know what a relief it is for someone in the suck to be assured that his family is safe.
