I have been blessed with both a wife, and a healthy wife. We often joke that Rose has “body issues” because she has gone to the doctor over 10 times since we’ve been married and I haven’t been once. She says she’s just normal and I’m a freak of nature when it comes to not getting sick.
Nonetheless, I heard about this couple that has been going through one of my worst nightmares of a somewhat still newly married man.
But she did.
On Tuesday, May 25, Amy was considered in stable condition and brain activity began to increase (between 5-7) but was still in and out of consciousness. Inner-cranial pressure had dropped from high 20s on Sunday night down to 1 on Tuesday night. She is responding through blinking (made direct eye contact with Jonny (her husband) on Tuesday night and on Wednesday morning blinked 5 times in response to “Amy, blink a bunch of times if you want Jonny to buy you lots of diamonds” and 3 times for “I love you”). And she is now breathing on her own 8 out of 18 breaths a minute.
But she’s been unable to move her limbs. A recent MRA is showing some blood in near her brain stem which is hindering motor skill movement.
Amy is only 24 years old and has been married to Jonny for 4 months. She is also an accomplished dancer.
While we are seeing God’s healing touch on Amy, we know she has a long ways to go and any permanent damage is still unknown. We are asking for your prayers for Amy’s complete healing.
