Good evening everyone; thanks for checking in on Shane. I had the chance to eat lunch with him today and spend some time with him tonight. Today was probably one of the toughest days for him since the beginning of his recovery relative to mindset, approach, and emotion. He was pretty much, as he put it, “quite the basket case all day”; he spent a lot of time in tears. He misses home, has been in a hospital setting for 2.5 months, the realities of the obstacles before him seem to be bigger than ever, and he was quite discouraged. We talked through each one and found perspective through each and discussed the reality of where he has come in the 10 weeks since the accident, with half of those being in rehab while the other were in the ICU Trauma ward in Hartford, being in a relative unconscious state. We discussed a lot of scripture and found encouragement and inspiration through them; he is truly praying for purpose and the good that can/will come out of this difficult situation and impact many for good. We parted tonight as we always do in prayer; I am confident he will sleep well tonight and tomorrow will be a new beginning with a fresh approach. Romans 8.28 says, “for we know that God causes ALL things to work together for good for those who love Him and for those called according to His purpose”. He is sovereign and in this we stand. Have a great night; we certainly appreciate all of your prayer and love.
