Five weeks ago today was the wreck that took both of Israel’s legs!!!
With progress there comes setbacks also. Israel has gotten the stomach flu today so he has been “laying pretty low”. He has also had some extreme shoulder pain which has shown up now that the terrible pain he was experiencing in his legs has receded. He is scheduled for an MRI tomorrow to check out the pain, which seems to be from the impact of the crash. Please pray for this MRI, as Israel’s body seems very sensitive to the magnetic pulses involved in it, & it has caused him some apprehension.
It is encouraging now that Israel has been fitted with what they call “shrinker socks” to start the process of shaping his legs for prosthetics. These socks have also helped Israel’s pain to lessen!
Thank you for checking in & caring about the progress Israel is making!
Back here in Alaska there are a lot of encouraging things that God is doing on behalf of Israel and Cori regarding their house. Progress has been taken this past week through the many kind efforts of men who have given their time to help put this house together for Israel and Cori’s future. Plumbing work was started last Saturday. A couple professional concrete men helped pour concrete on Friday which did an incredible job on the garage pad for Israel and Cori , working late into the evening finishing it. Saturday, the 13th, 4 plus men , all electricians, came and worked all day installing the electrical parts for the house . It has been a real blessing to see how God has put together so many people to help with the project and to keep it moving along so smoothly.
