Philippians 4:13

   Wow what a whirlwind this last couple days have been.  Sorry we haven't been able to keep up the posts but a lot has happened.  Jeff was released from ICU on March 25 and has been given a room in the Neuro Trauma Unit.  We now have better access and can visit whenever we want. 

   It was great that he was sent there before Justin and Kassie had to leave so they could get back to their beautiful girl Makayla.  It was Kassie's hope that she would see him out of ICU before she left and God answered her prayer.  This has been the theme all week.  God has been so gracious and has answered every one of our prayers. 

   When we came out here we had no idea where we would be staying we just knew we had to get out here.  Bob's office manager just happens to have a niece who is a nurse at the hospital that Jeff was admitted to and made arrangements for us to stay at the Hanson House which is a non-profit home set up for family members of patients and is a two minute walk from the hospital.  Then we found out that the Marines are going to pay for our plane tickets and our room charges.  We didn't even think to ask for this but apparently someone prayed for it because God provided this as well. 

   As for Jeff, he has amazed everyone especially the hospital staff.  They cannot explain it because only God can.  He has been cleared by the physical therapist and the occupational therapist with no rehabilitation needed as he has lost no motor skills or memory or anything.  The neuro surgeon cleared him to leave whenever he is ready.  We are waiting for word from the Marines that he is clear to go to Grand Rapids and we are hoping to get that Monday or Tuesday.  Once we have that we will be coming home with Jeff to start his treatment in Grand Rapids.  None of this would be possible without the miraculous power of our awesome God so please keep praying and know that God is on the Scene.
