Howard Matthews was trimming trees, when high winds gusted causing Howard to fall from a ladder.  He broke his back and two ribs, and he suffered a concussion.  It is going to be a long road to recovery as his back, ribs, and other ailments heal.  He has experienced setbacks, and has been readmitted to the emergency room to treat a staph infection and sepsis.  

Once the infections are cleared up, Howard will need to go to a rehab center before he can head home.  Before returning home, adjustments to their house will need to be made to allow access for a wheelchair.

Several hospital stays, rehab, house alterations... all of these things add up quickly.  For any of you who know Linda and Howard Matthews, you know they are two of the most giving and caring people out there.  I know how many lives they have touched, because they touched mine.  It's now their time of need.  Please give back to those who have given so much of themselves.

"Do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
-Isaiah 41:10

May the God of impossible things bring healing, hope, and caring to Howard!

Howard is on an antibiotic that he will need to take for 8 weeks. Cultures are grown all the time to check his infection to be sure his organs are doing well. There is no infection in the heart. Struggling with going from worrying about Howard learning to walk to making sure he just lives... Walking will come later, but will take much work. Please keep the prayers coming!
