In February, Pierce was diagnosed with Bacterial Meningitis and was immediately transported to Texas Children's Hospital in Houston's Medical Center. Pierce was having uncontrollable, constant seizures and was placed in a medically induced coma for a few days. This was the only way to make the seizures stop. They knew the seizures had the potential of causing numerous health problems and/or brain damage for Pierce and so stopping them was crucial. After 75 brutal, future unknown days in the hospital, Pierce was finally released to go home on April 19. His parents have been incredibly obedient to the Lord and continue to praise Him in this fierce storm.
While Pierce is now home, his battle is far from over. He attends therapy four times per week (physical, sensory & speech), but he is constantly undergoing further testing to see how this terrible disease has affected his brain, how much of the damage can be recovered, and what modifications they'll need to make for this sweet boy going forward. They recently learned that Pierce is profoundly deaf in both ears because of this horrible disease.
The Robinson's are truly amazing people, and their strength and their leaning into Jesus during this time has been amazing to see.
God is still writing Pierce's story, and we are all confident that it will be one that will impact people for the Kingdom.
Last month, our Kindergarten aged daughter, Britain, and the rest of the students in her Elementary school were each given $5. The principle challenged each student to think creatively on how to leverage their $5 in order to serve others.
Aimee and I shared more of Pierce's story with Britain, and we all agreed that we should leverage the $5 to help serve Pierce, Jacob, and Melissa.
So, here we are... Humbly asking you to match Britain's $5 at a 1-1, 2-1, 5-1, 10-1, 100-1, etc. ratio.
The Robinsons don't have direct visibility to what is next for Pierce, but one thing that is known, is that it will require substantial financial assistance. We humbly ask that you partner with us to impact their life.
Regardless of if you donate to support them, please remember them in your prayers. Again, we believe that God is writing an amazing story, and we wait excitedly to see what unfolds. Thank you for your consideration to support these amazing friends of ours!
