Please pray with us

Posted by Debie Bratt, Michelle's mom,

Difficult news is always hard to share but we are asking for your prayers at this time. Yesterday afternoon, while working, Mike fell about 9 ft off the scaffeling he was standing on. When he fell, two of his vertebrae were damaged causing severe damage to his spinal cord. He was life flighted to Utah Valley Hospital and will undergo surgery tommorrow. He's told he won't walk again but, like you, we believe in miracles. We would really appreciate your prayers and if you would like to join us we will be fasting today for him. We will keep you updated through this blog as to how he is doing. We are so grateful that he's been alert and in good spirits as best he can under the circumstances. Thank you for your love and prayers.

I just came over from Aubrey's site , started with your most current post and read back to this point.

I'm so sorry you've had to deal with this struggle. But you are right, miracles can happen.
Even if he doesn't walk again, I am truly amazed by your positive tone in the face of this. I'm sure you must be a strength to your husband when he's feeling down about this life altering event.
