Hello from the Rye home! We brought Katie home yesterday. She was released Sunday afternoon and made the trek home. She was very thankful for her BIG brothers to get her in Ben's big truck. Katie is relieved to be home, sleeping in her own bed and camping out in the recliner, yet sorrowful about leaving Ben, not having him at home, driving to and fro with the accident in mind. Katie was given a word. The word was to see her current situation now with being at home and Ben at the hospital as being on a "mission". Ben is gone on a mission... a mission to get well. She is on her own mission to get well and take care of the home front while he is away and let her family, ranger family and church family help her through it all. She has been a trooper in many ways. She feels very comforted by your words, stories, prayers and kindness. Thankyou
Ben is stable, off the ventilator for the most part, only sedated when he gets to tired, reacts to stimuli, moves his head when he hears Katie, squeezing Katie's hand consistently. Please pray for his brain to continue to heal well, specifically that the connections would be made for him to do things like open his eyes.
We are praying, singing, reading the word many times a day over Ben and Katie too. They need your prayers and we will all continue to stand and fight for them.
