Friday Update

Ross is doing good today. This morning at 5:00 A.M. he woke up asking for Ice Cream, so that is always a good sign.

We are all ready for him to walk out of here, but we know things like this take time to heal. Ross remains so positive. He keeps talking about the Lord and how good our God is. What a great guy. He keeps lifting all of our spirits.

The PT got him to sit up on the edge of his bed this morning, and he didn't even pass out!! GO ROSS!!

His blood count has dropped a little, (TOTALLY normal with trauma victims and post surgery), so he is getting a blood transfusion right now. Nothing to worry about, just a normal procedure. But he will be resting for the next 4 hours while he receives the blood.

Here are a few specific prayers request:
-For complete healing from all of his injuries.
-For good rest to strengthen his body.
-For not other complications.
-For strength and energy for his family as they fight this battle with him.
-Mostly, pray that this situation will ultimately bring people to/or closer to Christ.

Thanks for your support and prayers!!


  1. ross, I am praying for you big time, my brother in Christ, i came to see you today but left quickly because you needed rest. you should just shout out at all 1500 of your friends who come to visit- tell them to leave so you can get the much needed rest. anyway, I just want you to know that I am overwhelmed by the stories I hear of you sharing the glroious gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ while you are in that hospital bed. i think of you and of the apostle Paul, no matter what his state he was content, he knew how to be abased and how to abound,everywhere and in all things he knew how to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and suffer need. Paul and YOU Roscoe can do all things thru Christ who strengthens you. Phil 4. Next time I come to visit you I want to hear Phil ch. 2 from you and then I will quote ch. 4 to you, K?
    Love ya brother, me and Bill and all of our kids are lifiting you up in prayer daily.

  2. Rossy - I sent you a text that your dad said he'd pass along, but wanted to comment here too, just in case :)

    Praying for you big time friend, Shea just filled me in on all of this this morning. I'm coming home next weekend and will stop by if you're up to it, and Judy's planning on making you some sheet cake. Any other requests?

    Love you much!
