Dan Thompson Update

Donations for the Thompson family

Donations are now being accepted for Dan and Karen Thompson at Eagle Pizza. Stop by Eagle Pizza anytime during normal operations to donate to help the Thompson family.

Danny did well through the night. He is still fighting the infection in his lungs and sinuses, but the antibiotics should take care of it soon! He had a trach put in this morning and the ventilator removed. The respiratory specialist said they have the trach set to allow him to self monitor his breathing and he seems to be doing well on his own! The feeding tube was also removed this morning as they put a feeding peg directly into his stomach. The doctor is hopeful that both of these procedures will help quicken his recovery. It is such a blessing to see Danny’s precious face again, now that everything has been removed from his nose and mouth!

Continue to pray for Danny’s healing…brain swelling to subside and his body to begin and continue to regulate itself. It will be a long road ahead, but God has brought Danny so far in a week’s time! Thank you for your continued prayers and encouragement.

A favorite song of ours by Chris Tomlin says it best today:

“Our God is greater! Our God is stronger! God, You are higher than any other. Our God is healer; awesome in power; our God, our God. And if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us? And if our God is with us, then who could stand against?”

“I will proclaim Your greatness, my God and king; I will thank you forever and ever. Every day I will praise You forever and ever. The Lord is great and is to be highly praised; His greatness is beyond understanding.” Psalm 145:1-3

Dan Update

This may sound like a broken record, but things still remain about the same with Danny today. The neurosurgeon and nurses keep reiterating that “remaining the same” is a good thing when looking at the big picture. There continue to be small signs of encouragement that the family recognizes and holds onto. Medications and equipment continue to change each day as the needs arise, all of which helps in Danny’s healing process in the best possible way.

If things continue to progress in a positive way, they will perform a procedure tomorrow that will put in a trach and also a feeding peg in Danny’s stomach. The ventilator and feeding tube in his nose can then be removed. The doctor says that patients tend to recover more quickly and have less agitation when they remove all the tubes in their mouth and throat.

The family continues to praise our amazing God for His presence, His healing power, His provisions, and His love shared through so many! Thank you all for your encouragement and prayers. You don’t know how much it means to all of us.

Our scripture that we want to share today is from 1 Thessalonians 5:18, which reads: “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” We thank our God for his amazing grace, for our wonderful friends, and for all He is doing in and through Danny!

Background Story

The accident:  On November 18, 2012, Dan was helping a neighbor trim a tree.  While he was holding the ladder, a large tree branch fell and knocked Dan to the ground, making his head hit the concrete sidewalk.  He was life-flighted to OSU Medical Center, where they ascertained he needed immediate surgery to remove part of his skull to alleviate the pressure of blood flow on the brain, a subdural hematoma.  Through ct scans, the neurosurgeon realized that major damage had been realized by  the right side of the brain, along with many skull fractures, including the base of the skull, and the bone around the carotid artery and the jugular vein.
We are steadfastly praying around the clock that Dan is completely healed.  The doctors tell us that he has extensive brain damage, but our Father God is a great healer!The family certainly welcomes your visits to the SICU waiting room, however no visits are allowed for Dan in ICU.  The doctors have restricted his visitors for the next few days.Daily updates on Dan’s recovery can be found at:http://eagles-pizza.com/
