Bigg Recovery

I'm sure that a lot of you have heard terrible news about Marcus Norwood. Most of you know him as Big Country.
On the Afternoon of July 18th he was attending a family celebration and passed out, falling directly on his face.
With the impact of the fall he fractured 2 vertebrates the first and third. Which has caused him to be paralyzed from neck down.
He was immediately taken to the Portales hospital and was then air-evacced to Lubbock Texas. They were met there by wonderful doctors and nurses.
We were under the impression that the doctors would be able to relieve the pressure on his spinal cord.
Our family is praying for a Miracle and we truly believe that with the power of prayer he will be healed.

He can move his neck but cannot hold it up. He is having a hard time breathing because part of his diaphragm is paralyzed, which is causing his lungs to fill up with fluids. The doctors had no choice but to insert a tube down his throat to help with the
breathing and to remove some of the fluids.

Early morning on July 20th they performed a neck surgery inserting a metal plate in his neck so he will be able to gain strength in his neck.

The doctors have informed the family that this will be a slow process and he could be in the hospital for many months.
Misty his wife is going to stay with him in Lubbock, Texas and his children will remain in Portales, New Mexico.
Family will bring his children to visit a couple times a week.

Anyone who knows the Norwood family knows that they will face this long, tough road to recovery with faith and  courage. 
Together with his wife, 4 children, parents, siblings and family he will find peace and comfort. Bigg will have to endure in many painful months ahead. We love him dearly and will continue to have faith.

With the permission from Misty I have started this GoFundMe page to help cover some of the medical expenses and travling. I'm asking for your donation to help them through this sad and tough time.

I would like to thank you in advance for your support, prayers and donations.

Please keep his family in your prayers, especially his children!

We are setting our goal at 7,000 dollars.
