I drove down to Birmingham to visit Garrett and my brother and family yesterday. He's had a setback; is still on the ventilator and they have put him on total ventilator support to rest his lungs awhile. So he is unaware of us or time passage for now, and making microsteps forward.
Yesterday, a local TV station interviewed my brother and ran a personal touch story about the tornado and its aftermath. Here is the link if you're interested:
My brother's faith is strong, but everyone is having a hard time here. They're tired, riding the emotional rollercoaster, frustrated and still faced with the overwhelming everyday details of living. Please continue to keep them all in your prayers. Pray for strength, for rest, guidance and protection from illness for my brother, his wife, and his other son, as the two older have health problems already.
I'll post more later.
