Prayer Update on Emily
Wed., Jan. 19. 2011 11:06am EST
A few months ago, we asked you to pray for Emily, an 18-year old friend of ours who was very seriously injured in a terrible motorcycle accident in November. Here's an update from Emily in her own words from this week:
I'm feeling a lot better now. I'm still a little weak because I lost about 20 pounds in the hospital from not being able to eat for four weeks. My jaws were wired shut for the first four weeks because of all the fractures in my face, but I was very lucky because my bottom teeth fell out at the accident but the oral surgeon was able to put them back in and they kept. Please join us as we thank God for all He's done for Emily thus far, and as we ask Him to continue healing her.
I still have a lot of nerve damage in multiple areas, but we are hoping all the feeling will come back. I have 13 plates in my face, two in my arm, and one plate and two screws in my pelvis. They said it's not necessary to remove any of the hardware so I should be done with the surgeries. In all I had four while at the hospital to repair the broken bones and then to remove a 1.5 liter hematoma.
