Sunday night update-10-28-2012: from Dad

Shane had a full day today filled with visits from many very close friends. Coach Keith from Shane’s Varsity soccer team presented Shane with a Blue Knight jersey with the signatures from all of the current players on this years team. Coach reminded Shane that once a Blue Knight, always a Blue Knight; being part of the family is a relationship that does not end. His face further lit up as he embraced his close friends Ryan, Jake, Nate, Raven, and Jordan. They spent a few hours laughing, cutting up, and reminiscing on old times. Even though Shane is not yet able to speak he was able to hand gesture and write brief notes on his writing pad. Beth, Denise, and Lori visited with Shane for a bit; their support and friendship have been such a powerful source of strength and encouragement for us during this time. Chelsea’s good friends Jessica and Eileen came from work and spent some time with Shane to close out his day. When I said he had a full day that was no exaggeration: once cared for by the nurse and us having some time in prayer together, he pretty much crashed.

Tomorrow they will reassess the swelling in his throat and determine a course of action. We are truly believing to see some great progress made this week to the point where he will move from this step down room to the final room at this hospital prior to being released to his rehabilitation program. Again, this will all unfold in its due time.

We heard a message from Joel Osteen this morning entitled ” staying in the game”. He spoke of those times in our lives when confronted by all odds, a bad thing happening, or an apparent catastrophe or event and our response to them. We were very touched by the message and were convinced it was a word for Shane and us at this time. We were pleased to record it and were looking forward to sharing it Shane at the appropriate time. Well, Shane woke up and our interaction led to me sharing a little of the message I heard today. I shared that I heard a message this morning and a little of what it was about. As it turns out at the time Joel came on, Shane’s TV was on and it was on the same channel as Joel’s broadcast and he heard the entire message. We believe in the ability and sovereignty of our Lord and are convinced He will work out all things together for good. At a later date we will revisit the message: what an amazing sequence of events. We love u; will revisit with u tomorrow.
