Thursday Update...

We arrived home from Germany late last evening.... Noah left the Medical Center at Landstuhl, Germany on Tuesday and arrived at his original Army base here in the United States some time yesterday via Andrews Air Force Base. They determined that the damage to his back & neck could not be healed in the short time allotted for care at Landstuhl, and so he will be treated at the Army medical facility at the base here in the U.S. While he did not suffer any fractures of the vertebrae or any apparent permanent damage to the spine, he has a long recovery of healing (time) and physical therapy ahead of him to repair the muscles and ligatures in his back and neck... They will be conducting tests over the next few days and weeks to determine whether he has any permanent damage... The doctors are hopeful (as are we) that time & PT will return him to 100%! We realize every minute of every day just how lucky he is and we are that his injuries were not as serious as they had originally thought... I'm convinced it was the prayers!

Thank you all for all your caring and concern and prayers!
Please keep the family of Sgt. Matthew Bohling in your prayers... Matt was 22 and was killed Monday by an IED. My Guys say he was one heck of a guy...

My thoughts and prayers go out to Noah as he recovers.
I know you are glad to have him back in the USA, it would be better if the circumstances were different but he is a strong man and his body will heal in time.
God Bless You..

So glad Noah and you are back on home ground.

I'm sure it is bittersweet having Noah home and yet remembering the soldier who did not make it home.

I will keep you and your Noah in my prayers.
