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!!

Checked on Willy and his son in law Rory Minitree called to tell me what I had already seen. Willy is getting better every day. He is speaking and eating. He recognized me and talked a lot, but what he is saying is not making a lot of sense. In time and with rehab, he should get better. It is going to take some time.  Continue to pray for Willy, his family and the doctors and nurses that  are looking after him.  ~Ronnie Jones

Prayers are working, keep’em coming!!! Surgeon said Macho”s surgery went better than expected. C7 was crushed, but they were able to clean it out and rods in. There were electrical responses from the brain to the lower legs so there is a chance after rehab to be able to walk again. Biggest prayer for now is to have no swelling. Also said when they straightened him out the vertebra fell back into alignment, they were not sure that was going to happen. Long road to recovery, but there is a chance at recovery.
Please pray for one of our Overton Students Christian Rodriguez *Macho*.  He was in a very bad accident last night and he is in ICU. He is able to move his arms hasn’t moved anything else yet. He is going to have surgery today on his back and they say it can take about 5hours.  They are giving him a 5 – 15% chance of walking again.  Said his 6th and 7th vertebrae are crushed.

Bob Gilley called last night after seeing the Dr. It looks like there are several bones broken and that there is one bone chip that may be causing some nerve damage which could go away with time and reduced swelling.
