The journey began last November with a broken leg then heightened in January with two emergency surgeries due to the discovery of blood clots in the other leg and lungs.  It was sobering to hear multiple doctors say, “You’re fortunate to be alive!”  I was told I had more than 100 clots in my right leg and 4 in my right lung.  This week we learned from my hemotologist that multiple tests show NO remaining blood clots!! Please join us in thanking God for His mercy and grace!  Thank you all for your prayers that He chose to answer in this way!  The journey isn’t over yet as various treatment plans continue as doctors work to get my blood in order and my bones strengthened.  Additionally, I have significant pain and damage in my blood clot leg impeding strength, stability and mobility.  God is blessing the work and ministry of three superb doctors in my life as they continue to partner together in my care.  I know many of you pray for them!  Your prayers mean the world to Gordon and me so please continue!  We’ll know in a couple of weeks about the possibility of one more surgery.  Love you all!  Brenda Bevis

This is the most recent update on Macho: They Transferred him to Houston for therapy. This is the report from his sister. Week one in Houston for Cristian Rodriguez has had some ups and downs! He’s had some negative comments from nurses that really bothered him but he picked himself back up and decided he was going to keep a positive mindset despite their scientific beliefs. He said he knows this is between him and God! He got his cath out because they wanted him to be more independent and that’s exactly what he is wanting! We are all uplifted in our spirits because he said he is starting to feel tingling in his legs.. sometimes painful.. but it’s a feeling! Drs said that’s nerves repairing and recovering! He had a hard couple days trying to learn to balance when the therapist would stand him up because he can’t feel his legs and all his balance has to come from his core, but he has really worked hard on his balance and said he’s got it down now! SO PROUD! Overall, he’s the best kid I know! We’re all so proud of him! And he believes the more therapy he gets the sooner he will walk again so he is taking it very seriously and has worked hard every day!! Therapy does wear him out mentally and physically but he’s DETERMINED!!! He has been feeling lonely so if anyone wants to go visit please feel free to!! He has therapy from 9-2ish and weekends it’s only for about an hour! We all love you Cristian and are so proud of you!!
