When Daniel was initially brought to UAB Hospital in Birmingham, AL, by airlift, he was placed in a "halo" device, however the neurosurgeon quickly decided to stablize his fractured C-4 spine with front and back fusion, hardware, screws etc. He has an "incomplete" injury, which means that his spinal cord was not completely severed, thank you LORD! He did, however, suffer spinal cord injury, which made him considered to be a quadriplegic.
Now Daniel is at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, GA. Shepherd is known for being a place where intensive therapy and cutting-edge modalities bring people with spinal cord injuries to amazing improvements. We have seen so many things that we were initially told may never happen because of the level of his injury, now happening!
Please continue in enthusiastic prayer for Daniel. We are so proud of our young man's efforts and hard work.
