Evansville Teen Making Miraculous Recovery 1 Week After Serious Wreck
If you are a parent with kids that are of driving age, I'm sure you lecture them before they take the wheel. "Pay attention, drive slowly, don't text, pay attention." This is probably what I'll be telling Chase in a few years. I will then panic everytime I hear a siren. Who am I kidding, I will wrap my baby boy in bubble wrap to keep him safe. Just kidding. We know that's not logical, and accidents do happen. What do you do when facing the worst? Pray.

4 AM Ramblings From a Sleep-Deprived Broken-Hearted Mama:
It's 4 AM and I am sitting next to Aidan's bed watching him for any signs that he is in there. He is deeply sedated and so very sick. He up and without any provocation moved his right leg spontaneously. The nurse looked at me and said "did ya see that mom?? And smiled." ~ Jess Mendel
Prayer is Working
The prayers ARE WORKING! His physicians have now admitted to me that they are 'shocked' at his rapid improvement. Today, he has started to consistently open his eyes and find his dad or mom and make deliberate eye contact. He is giving THUMBS UP with BOTH hands and squeezing our hands ALL ON COMMAND! ~ Jess Mendel
They had been told previously that it could be weeks before he was able to follow commands. In the latest status, his mom says that he is off of the ventilator, and the Neurosurgeon says he is defying expectations!
