I'm posting this at request of Eternity (Sam) who right now is barely capable of typing, let alone making a thread.

Over the weekend her bf was involved in a major accident with his truck, I don't know the details of it. I do know it involves skidding off the road and into a tree, the guy he was driving with has disappeared without a trace.

Right now her bf is in the hospital bandaged like a mummy and unconscious. He hasn't been conscious in days.

Sam is worried out of her mind, she hasn't eaten or slept since it happened (2-3 days ago), which is dangerous for her but more-so for her growing twins.

Needless to say this requires major emergency prayer. Lives are literally hanging in the balance.

I have been praying for Samantha.

She has been on quite a spiritual/emotional/physical roller coaster with everything.

Scott mentioned today that Samantha still hasn't gotten to see Kevin, and that she isn't eating or sleeping. Keep praying!

...Wow...This is the first time I've gotten to see this thread...and just...wow... :'( thank you soooooooo much you guys, this is...amazing!!! You're prayers and concern just...it's all sooo muchly appreciated...thank you...

No, I hadn't slept in four days...I hadn't eaten, either. Kevin...he...just...wasn't waking up or responding to anything, and I hadn't gotten to see him not once since I've been here. But yet...faithfully, I've remained never more than a couple minutes away from his room...and for the first time yesterday, I got to see him, if only for 15 minutes. It was the hardest thing to see him laying there all bruised and bandaged and not even responding...but when I was sitting there talking to him, telling him how much I love him, how much I need him...I felt his fingers twitch!! The hope was just amazing at that one little movement!!

But of course, something small most of the time leads into something bigger...and he went into distress last night. I can't even remember what time it was, it must have been sometime early this morning (I think...7:30-ish?) that I realized they must have brought him back to his room because my brother-in-law wasn't even where I'd left him. He's the only one who's been able to even visit Kevin since we've been here, which I really do believe is unfair...but...I'm not complaining about it anymore because this morning just before lunchtime sometime his doctor approached me and told me that they're going to (finally) let me be with him in his room...having the same access as my brother-in-law does. His reasoning for it, however, goes more or less to the effect that because he responded to me and to nothing else yesterday, they really think that I might be able to help him out of this.

I was sitting in there about lunchtime...talking to him like I expected an answer...and he opened his eyes and looked at me!! I don't know if that was just...him waking up? Or if that was God trying to convey the message that everything would be just fine?? Because the lines between everything was just so blurred that I couldn't tell the difference. But it was him, because he keeps slipping in and out of consciousness and even once today...I got a mumble out of him...he told me he loves me, and then slipped right back out of it again.

Needless to say, I've been dozing for a couple hours at a time right here beside him...and faithfully I shall remain here, too, until he gets better. I've even eaten, unfortunately the only thing that stays down is Chicken Noodle Soup...but it's a start.

Anyways, I just...wanted to give you guys an update for myself...and thank you all for prayers, let you know they are soooooooo greatly appreciated as these last few days have been absolute torture...

Love you all!

That is really good news, and tis good that he is responding to you.. You are right, the small things generally lead to bigger things, and it seems positive. Praise God.
I'll continue to be praying for complete healing. you should try to look after yourself as well, and its also good you ahve been able to eat some things. Chicken soup is better then nothing :)
So, hold onto God, and have faith, and know you have a lot of people praying for the whole thing, and complete healing.

I bet that all those times that you were talking to him when he wasn't responding that he could actually hear you and was tyring to answer. But reguardless, they can come up with any medicine they want, but there is nothing better than being with the ones you love. I mean, it's prooven that hugs make a baby healthier. God made us this way on purpose because He's a loving God. I'm praying and believing for you also.

I read this with tears streaming, Sam.

I am continuing to pray for you and Kevin and the twins. I have felt such a peace.

I wish I could be there and spoon feed you chicken noodle soup while you hold Kevin's hands!

I slept for about 12 hours last night, and I'm starting to feel better...as is Kevin.

They took him off the breathing machine (every time I watch his chest rise and fall with breath, I thank God that he's alive :D!) and he's actually started speaking rather than mumbling...but we had a nice little discussion last night right before I fell asleep. I finally found out what happened out there!

As some of you may already know, Kevvy's a hauler...he drives transport for a very large, very well-paying company, and he loves his job (the job he won't be working until he fully recovers, as are both his boss' and my orders ;))...and as Scott informed, Buddy who was running with him when they took that run on Friday disappeared without a trace. They were hauling explosives 6 and a half hours up the Sierra road out to the camp where Kevvy would have been wintering until Spring. Last night, Kevin finally told me that on the way back, they hit a really bad patch of ice and while he was trying to control the semi and keep it on the road, buddy grabbed the wheel and forced it in the opposite direction to go off the road and into the ditch. The transport rolled.

They finally caught buddy, and he's very much alive...because the police escorted him to see Kevvy this morning (in the meantime I was restrained by my brother-in-law and taken out of the room away from buddy...he knows...) He's beat up, and walks with a limp...but doesn't come anywhere close to being as serious conditions as Kevvy. I'm not quite sure why they brought him in...but they did...and since I've seen now what he looks like, his condition...my theory is that the truck probably would have had to do a complete 180 in order to have rolled over and landed the way that it did for Kevvy to be the way he is, and for buddy to get away like he did.

It's not that I hate...it's that I've never felt so much rage like this before...it's the fact that buddy endangered the life of my family that I feel this, why my brother-in-law had to restrain me and take me away from the room for fear that I'd lose it...and he was right to.

I just thought that I'd give a brief update, and let you all know again that your prayers are definitely very much appreciated!

*hugs*

(I can actually imagine you sitting there, staring at his chest just to watch him breathe, and skipping when he holds his breath for a second. ;D ::])


You know I'm still prayin' for both of ya. :) Glad to hear you got more sleep than I've gotten in one night in a long time. :D
