Thomas had his surgery, after the surgery - was paralyzed from the neck down, doctors were very hopefull that this was a temporary paralysis.
He seemed to begin to have some feeling and movement in his arms after several days, and was moved to the Bryant Aldridge Rehab, but shortly after moving over there he developed some intestinal issues due to the paralysis and had to be moved back to the hospital. I believe the case management folks and his wife are working to have him moved to a specialty hospital that specializes in spinal injuries.
Please continue to keep this family in your prayers.

Please pray for Thomas. His little boy ( 9 ) and girl (11) go to my church, Thomas had 4 herniated discs and had to have surgery yesterday to remove the disc and fuse the vertebrae. Last night they said he his paralyzed from the neck down, but they hope this is just temporary. Please pray the swelling goes down and that God will restore this dad and husband and reveal Jesus to him and his wife in mighty ways.
His little boy and girl just accepted Christ in the last couple of weeks.......
