PostSubject: Prayers for a very special man, please...   Sun Oct 09, 2011 8:27 pm

I've asked for prayer for this gentleman before - but I couldn't find the thread for it. He truly is one of the "Mr. Wonderfuls" of this world, and is one of the most amazing men I know. He's 70-years-old, and he and his wife still have five kids at home that they adopted from Haiti. And they'd adopt more if they could! They have hearts as big as the world, and as much life and joy in them as the kids do themselves! Jerry is his name, and he's the grandpa I'd drawn with his new grandbaby almost a year ago:



Well, today, Jerry had a stroke, and is unable to swallow or talk, and can't move his right side. He can move his left side a little. At this point they don't know how severe the stroke was, but please pray for him, and for his kids. They absolutely adore him. (His granddaughter is Phoebe, who I'd asked for prayer for as well.) Jerry has so much "kid" left in him that I think most people who know him don't really think about him getting older even though he is white-haired. Thanks, everyone...He's just such a truly wonderful man. Everyone should have the privilege of knowing someone as amazing as he is.

I will be praying .....My knees are sore this week. But what an honor we have in prayer. Thanks for letting us know.

Thank you SO MUCH for praying, everyone! I hadn't heard any updates since right after his stroke, and I really didn't want to bother the family if things were still really crazy. But Hannah let me know that he's doing MUCH better! He was actually talking on the phone yesterday - and the morning after his stroke, he'd been unable to communicate at all! She also posted on Facebook - and I know she wouldn't mind me sharing it here:

Hannah wrote:
Dad is doing great. Phebe called him last night and I heard her say, "I miss you too!" She was so excited. So he must have said "I miss you" to her. The staff at Mary Free Bed seem pretty amazed at how quickly he is improving. Just a few days ago he couldn't move his fingers. Now he's clipping clothes pins with those same fingers. :-) I'm sure mom is excited to know dad can now help with laundry! :-)

That just made my day!! Thanks again for your prayers for Jerry!
