My family and I arrived from Hawaii yesterday late afternoon and headed straight to the hospital to be with everyone. I cannot put into words how good it felt to wrap our arms around my brother Jameson and his wife Mary, and even more importantly to physically hug our precious nephew last night.
As you can imagine, it has all been a lot to process as we are all coming together as a family unit over the last 24 hours. The more we talk together and learn about the facts of how everything unfolded, the more and more evident it appears that it is a pure miracle he is still alive and with us today. My brother and sister-in-law are doing really well considering, but need prayer for increased strength, wisdom, and rest in the these very moments.
Everything has gone very smoothly since his first surgery. The doctors and nurses have been absolutely incredible, not just with Jameson’s care, but with the whole family.
I cannot say enough amazing things about Jameson Jr. and his attitude through this whole thing. His heart is so full to be surrounded by his family right now. His outlook on this massive life change seems very positive so far. He was telling us how if he does really well with his physical therapy that he will be able to get out of the hospital and go home soon. He is already setting up some goals for himself like the incredible young boy he is. While you can see the shock and emotions processing in his eyes you can still see this bright light of positivity shining through. It really is incredible and inspiring. We are all so very very proud of him.
As far as prayers needed from this point today they are as follows:
Today Jameson Jr. will be undergoing another surgery as the doctors clean up around his knee and make sure that there is no infection and that muscle and bone are good to go for next steps. Please pray and believe with us for zero infection in this area as it is crucial for steps moving forward for physical therapy and so on.
Next, please pray for his pain levels to be at the nearest minimum as the wonderful nurses and doctors by his side are figuring out what is working best for his pain management right now.
Again, please keep covering Jameson and Mary in prayer for their strength of heart and mind and for them to be able to get adequate rest when able.
Lastly, continue to pray for sweet Jameson Jr. as he enters into the journey of physical therapy and the mental and emotional aspect behind everything.
We will do our best to continue with updates on our end for the family. We want everyone to know that we have communicated with Jameson Jr. and his mom and dad about the overwhelming outpouring of love and support that have come in from you all through phone calls, texts, emails, and social media, not just to us but to our entire family. They are brought up to speed and are aware and extremely touched by everyone’s love, prayers, and generosity towards the fundraiser during this time. They are blown away. As you can imagine they have several unread messages as they are placing all their focus and attention to sweet Jameson’s care. Thank you for the space and grace you have given them during this time.
A quick message to the media*
We are receiving your messages and kind condolences and plan to respond soon as the family does wish to get Jameson’s brave story out to the world and share the faith he had in God for saving his life.
