Karen and her son Ben, were in a serious snowmobile accident on Feb. 12th.  They are both in Harborview ICU.  Ben is in serious condition with broken back, ribs, and collarbone.  Karen is in critical condition with serious head unjury and multiple broken bones in her face.  They both require surgery, long term care as they recover, and a lot of prayer.  this is going to require more than what they are able on their own, even with their family's support.  Please help and anything is appreciated

I'm sorry, but yesterday I posted the wrong meal app. The correct link is below. MEALTRAIN. I'm so sorry for any confusion I caused...sigh.

Good Morning update
Karen is swallowing well and showing signs of being the Karen we all know and love. They played Amy Grant for her yesterday and she immediately started tapping her foot to "baby baby" (Karen and Emily flew across the country for her concert once). On the second Chorus she started mouthing the words! She also smiled at Emily. The Dr. says her behavior is showing greater progress than the MRI is showing. The music soothed her greatly through the night. She may be transitioning out of ICU tomorrow and beginning speech, physical, and occupational therapy. There is a family meeting Tues. with her team of doctors to discuss in depth her condition and what recovery looks like. It will be a long road to recovery, but we know Karen is amazing and so is Jesus. Janice also was told that people with very active brains tend to recover quicker. Well, we all know that's Karen to the max.
On another note, any time there is something that is so public as gofundme, there are scammers trying to take advantage. Look closely to any link you get and the url. Several of my fb contacts have gotten a message (look closely) that is gofundam at https://tinyurl.com/gwzxspw. I have reported it to gofundme.
Ben is recovering well at home with his Dad
Thank you for all of your support.
please watch for a separate update soon about mealtrain. I made a mistake in my meal update..so sorry

I am reposting the meal train link and requesting help for the family if you are local. They are still at Harborview ICU around the clock. You can call the hospital at 206-744-8281, and purchase vouchers starting Tues. They are primarily using them for dinner, to get one hot meal. Breakfast and lunch foods can be dropped off at the hospital. There is no micro or fridge for their use, so it is difficult for them. There are 6-8 people at any given time.

Another great update it that Ben is now at home recovering and doing well.
Thank you everyone!

BEST update ever from Emily!
Update on mom:
They took the tubes out this morning and said she's doing really well breathing on her own and coughing so they're hopeful they won't have to reinsert the tubes. She's more coherent today and it seems likely that at least to a degree she understands us, and just a minute ago she was trying to say something to me, and she is opening her eyes pretty frequently and seeming to register us. All the movement and such is good news the Drs say. They said today that her scans show severe trauma but that her actual behavior and symptoms are farther along and more Hopeful than the scans would suggest, so praise God for supernatural healing
Karen and her beloved Widget

Yes, please do pray if you wake up in the middle of the night. I once had a long and scary stay in ICU, and was so comforted when God whispered in my ear that I was not alone, folks were awake with me -- and praying. It was a nearly PHYSICAL presence in my hospital room (the prayers of His people) that I have never forgotten. Karen, by the way, was one of those praying.

So heartbreaking and undoubtedly a long road ahead. But we serve a mighty God! I stand with this family of people who are covering both Karen and Ben in prayer daily. Thank you for the updates. It is very helpful to know how to pray specifically and such a joy to see the prayers answered. ♥

Thank you so much, Emily, for the updates. So encouraging. Of course, it's a long road ahead, but she is already beating the odds so wonderfully. I know you must all be exhausted, so prayers continue for all of you. Any more news on Ben?
