It’s been 58 days since our son has been at a Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital making miraculous progress given his hard work, thousands of prayers, angel workers of PT and OT, and the best servant caregiver nurses around!

I type “Day 58” and just can’t believe it! I can’t believe we have been here this long yet at the same time August 7 seems like 2 years ago!!

Which makes me think about time. Time is a word we all want more of. We all want more time for most things,...

We all face adversity at varying points in our lives, to varying degrees. Some face more adversity and obstacles than others, and we often ask “why me?” In facing adversities, we can even get buried by them shifting the course of our lives forever. The worst adversities I have experienced or seen others experience that can have the most profound effects are things like the loss of a child, a divorce, loss of a parent, dissolving a partnership, failing in leadership,...

We were driving to school to drop Mac off for her day, and as we drove we were praying as Karen had started that tradition a couple of years ago with our kids. Praying with them each day as they drove to school. So we prayed. Then as we get there, she always had her ending words of encouragement of “Go be awesome” or “Make it a great day” etc. And today, Mac gets out, turns and looks back to say goodbye and I love you, she did something different, and a first. She l...

As we have all moved through this coronavirus pandemic, practices have been forced to adapt to environment demands, adopt new practices to conform to customer-accepted needs, and live in our “new norm” of today’s society.

When the coronavirus pandemic began, we all started to talk between practices often asking “What are you doing?” or “Have you gone curbside yet?” The initial outbreak created...

As I sit here at Madonna Rehabilitation hospital, I am reminded virtually every minute that life is ever so precious, and things can change forever in a split second. As I have been telling people, if you think you have it bad, just spend a couple of weeks here, and you will rise and shine every morning with a big smile and make it a habit to give thanks to God for your many blessings!

I sit here this morning, as we now are getting very good sleep and I am getting ba...

It’s raw emotion…. Man, I never thought I would be in this situation, neither did my wife, and my son and daughter never did as well. Where from here??

Mac and I got home Saturday afternoon after trading out with Karen Friday morning. Sunday came, and I woke up feeling like I hit a brick wall. I got up and did some things just to see if my body would come more alive, but it didn’t. And that was when it dawned on me, I had been running on pure adrenalin for the past 2...

Our Boy Nash Update - Day 2 Madonna

Nights and pain continue to improve but his body craves movements and he tends to struggle from midnight to 2 am. But with some pain management is able to sleep well before and after those times.

This morning’s start was rough but he powers through and pushes through all sorts of new pains from new movements. It’s basically relearning to do all things in his lower half of his body with intensive OT and PT! His main OT is Erin and ma...

It was sometime this last winter, and I can’t recall, but a college roommate of mine at Fort Hays was putting out on social media about his son getting life watched to KC for a severe headache situation they couldn’t figure out. I immediately began to pray and continued praying for answers and for healing. I continued to follow Lance Fiekert’s posts on Twitter and Facebook, as he was guiding prayer warriors on specific prayers, but he was also sharing the things tha...

Chaos creates distractions. Chaos creates more chaos. It seems to be the odd world we live in today. And as things close or open, we social distance, and listen or read the news, we often get more confusion or chaos in our brain. To me, two things happen or have been happening. 1 is, even for me, it can be difficult not to tune in to the news and the fear that they create. It’s like an addiction. I have been good about not tuning in to the news because it presents l...

Social media is driving our bus.  Social media and media are establishing the direction of our world.  Think about that for a minute…Let that sink in…  30 years ago, we as humans determined our daily direction.  We went about our day, working, parenting, taking care of the daily details.  Not today.  Today, we all, me included, we consume some form of social media, media news, social media news at frequent rates equaling multiple times a day.  We often can’t pull ou...
