Ferg...That is a very moving and powerful testimony from your daughter. As someone else said, very wise beyond her years.

Ferg & Kimber...I can't imagine what your families have gone through and still go through every day. I can only pray that God will give all of you peace, comfort, and even understanding at some point.

Thank you all for the very kind comments -

Kenneth's death moved Christine in a profound way - even at 18 - and Matthew's situation has touched her again - like Kenneth has been tugging at her, telling her to 'do something' while all the time not knowing what that 'something' should be - and finally, well, you read the results -

From God's heart - to Christine's hand -

Thank you Jesus,

Your very humble servant -

ferg....

After all were asleep but me (and our wonderful nurse broke the rules and let both of us stay in the room last night) I read Christines letter again.. Thank goodness I kept my composure some better this time and sunk my teeth into every sentence even more than yesterday... I actually smiled a lot this time - some due to the fact that Christines attitude is much like mine and Matthews, and I like the no BS attitude myself - our nation needs more of that these days - and also some smiling from deep in my heart just because I know someone else truly DOES understand..

We appear to be going home today, on Matthew's 21st Bday! As I've said, long road ahead.. Kim and I had our IV infusion training last night, 6-weeks of that to go, we are trying to figure out how we we'll sleep - arrangement wise - for the next 11-12 wks.. Matthew cant sleep with either of us this go around as an elbow to the right side of his head with this bone flap out could be fatal and you cant sleep in the stupid helmet so we'll prob rotate sleeping on the couch outside his bedroom door while having a monitor in the bedroom for the other parent so he as twice the chance of waking us up when needed.. Been here 5 times now and still scared.. and knowing brain surgery #6 is just round the corner.. What I do believe, as Christine said too, is that God has not put Matthew through all this to see him not make the final hurdles... He has done this because he has a plan and I believe that plan will involve Matthew helping others - makes sense anyway as he has a heart of Gold!

Ferg - After reading it again, I ask again - Please hug Christine and tell her I understand and that God hsa our back when we choose to allow him too - as she knows all too well and then give her a HUGE hug from my family!!
Scott

I would be very very proud of that girl also. She poured her heart out to try to help a stranger. You don't see that very much in this day and time. She is mature beyond her years.
