Lukeyoder's Blog

Just another weblog

Wednesday Morning….

They took Luke down for MRI finally last night around 8:00.  He had been scheduled for the test most of the day but things had gotten delayed.  We won’t have those results till later today.  From what we understand they wanted to check his neck and a few vertebrae to make sure there was no damage there since he is starting to move more.

He stirred again at about 2:30 am and again around 7:00 am this morning.  Both of these times becoming aggitated with the restraints and trying to pull at things.  Ben said Luke was even trying to flick the pulse monitor off his finger with his his other fingers on that hand.  We are praising the Lord for these awesome signs and praying for more. 

Ben and Lindsey are so thankful for all your thoughts and prayers as they feel it and see its effects in a real way!  Something specific to add to your prayers today would be for Lindsey.  Since she was the first to get to Luke and hold him, she has some very real and traumatic pictures of Luke in her mind.  Just pray for healing for those memories and God’s special touch on her right now.

We are awaiting the doctors rounds this morning and will post an update on what they say.

  3. Your family is constantly on my mind/in my prayers. Lindsey~I pray that Jesus will take captive your thoughts so that they are not traumatic for you. May He heal those memories you have of Luke and bring peace and comfort and pleasant memories as your precious boy walks this road to recovery. I’m believe God~ that He will be glorified and that Luke and Carson will have amazing testimonies!

  4. Dear Yoder Family,

    Our prayers go out to you as you go through this tough journey. May God’s hand of healing and comfort be upon everyone there. Jacob is upset to learn of the accident. He says to tell Luke that he hopes that he will get better soon. If there is anything we can do to help the family please let us know.

  5. Dear Lindsey and Ben,
    I heard the news about Luke on the evening of the day that it happened and have been praying for him fervently ever since. Steve and I will continue to pray for Luke and the rest of you. We know God is able to give grace and comfort and healing, and we pray for all of those. You will always have a special place in my heart, Lindsey, so it is an honor to support you in prayer.
