Eily’s Report – 13th June

A lot happens in a week, some good and some not so good but my story today is one of a miracle, a real miracle. Last week I told you about our dear friend who was hit by a car while out doing what he loved best,cycling. He was found by County Council Workers and airlifted to CUH where his tests revealed a very serious brain injury.  He was put on life support over the Bank Holiday weekend,  the doctors to come on Monday to remove it. In the meantime his family said their goodbyes and invited his closest friends to do the same.  While we all waited for that phone call to say he was gone, a very different account came to say that our 68 year old friend had woken up and called his family members and friends ,(including myself) naming each one. He replied  correctly to their questions. He took some liquid food and very soon taken out of the high-dependency room. A week later he can walk a little with the aid of a zimmer frame and is in a four-bed ward. Needless his wife, son and daughter are almost afraid to think that this is not all a lovely dream and that they will wake up and find that it was. Nobody knows what his future holds, but right now they are treating his case as a pure miracle. The medical team are dumbfounded, so also the nursing staff and all connected with his case.

And to quote the thought for the week from this weeks missalette.

‘Those who wait upon God get fresh strength, they spread their wings and soar like eagles’.

Needless to say this Godfearing family were in our prayers from the start  and  recovery so far is inspiring, proving once again that we must never give up on the Power of God.
