Dana, 

Hello my friend, and brother. In a direct response to your post tonight, I would like to say that to us who are still with you in the battle never tire of "every detail" of your daily posts. Your devotion befits your "ironman" reputation. Few amongst us would still have the fortitude and discipline to post 1,000 plus days in a row. 

Please allow me to share a short story from my life. My father served in the South Pacific Theater in US Marine Corp from February 1943 until he was shot on the Ryuku Islands on May 8th, 1945. He was an "ironman," beachhead warrior.

I have every letter that he wrote to his family in Ely, Iowa, from the day he graduated Basic Training in Quantico, Virginia, until his last letter from the U.S. Naval Hospital, on Mare Island, San Francisco, where he had 13 surgeries in 18 months to restore his body from severe wounds.

Every Memorial Day, I gather, with members of my family, at his grave, to read portions of his letters. (Btw, he passed away 15 years ago last Friday, one hour after Justin Leonard sank his famous Ryder Cup putt). What I hear in the voice of your post tonight reminds me of my dad's battle fatigue. The letters from 1943 are full of "Marine" masculinity, and their superiority to the Army and Navy. His 1944 letters are filled with the beginning of weariness and the names of friends among him that "got it." (killed). His 1945 letters are filled with despair and hopelessness of any kind of a life after the war. His hospital letters are ….. well, short. Why? He wrote, "I'm sorry that I keep repeating myself. It must be boring for you all to read the same old same old from me. Love, Dave."

If you're still reading my response, I want to encourage you that your details are not in vain. Not one among us is exempt from trials and tribulations. It's not a matter of "if, "but when" it will be our turn. Your words are not wasted because healing is unusual in itself. There's a chasm of difference between a paper cut and Devo's head trauma, yet even a paper cut can be the bane of ones existence if it's in an area that is in constant motion and pressure.

Dana, Angie, Nicole, Charlotte, family and friends   …. we are in motion. Do NOT lose heart, faint, nor grow weary. The fruit from the motion you have travelled and the "emotion" of what you have spent is not in vain. 

Thank you for being a faithful warrior. I know that if something were to happen to me that I would you as my intercessor. It's a joy to be one for you, and Devo.

In His love,
Paul

Dear Quigley family,
        God works in mysterious ways!  There is not a doubt in our minds that this "chance" meeting was well planned.  It is I possible to imagine how Devon felt while listening to this woman describe the trials she and her family have been through, but we can imagine it was very heartening.  Our God places certain people in our lives at the times that we need them most.  Praise Him!
         May God continue to Bless you all.....

God keeps telling me that Devon needs to be in Florida and he needs the help of natural healers...yes, Jesus, but also people who deal with eastern, alternative, out of the normal, healing. These people have proven that they can help even more than physicians who use drugs. That may not be popular with the masses but who cares? Back in Jesus' day, they didn't believe that He could heal either, yet he did. Maybe this is God's message to you to try another avenue, another path. You have been shut down time and time again by western medicine, medical doctors. Follow what God is telling others to tell you. At this point, what have you got you lose? This is the path that I took by the Grace of God. I believe in the western medical profession, too...but like naturopaths, they are just humans at the end of the day and are not GOD! My opinions.


Love always,

Patti

Hi everyone.  Dana, you wrote about Chris having the dream and then reading Caringbridge.  You probably don't remember but I think it was a year ago the same thing happened to me!  I had a dream about Devon and we were in an auditorium filled with people and Devon was standing in front of me trying to get to the other side!  I was shocked that he was up on his own two feet and asked him if he needed help?  He said no and very slowly and carefully walked away!!!  When I woke up and read your post it was you talking about Devon walking!  I was also blown away like Chris!!  (You posted it before I dreamed it but I didn't read it until the next day).

Wow, this is so cool!  I love being a part of all this!  God is so good and so loving and so exciting!

Healing for Dev….head to toe!

Love to all,
Brenda

Dana, thank you for yet another message. You and your family are truly an example of walking with our Lord and allowing Him to work through us. I wanted share how Jim and I spent our day. Two of our granddaughters, sisters, invited Jesus into their hearts and lives and today they were both baptized. They were surrounded by six grandparents, their little brother, their adoring parents and a couple of cousins. It was the most beautiful experience I have had in a long time. Watching life come full circle and seeing my next generation profess their love for our Lord. Wow.

Amen Dana. One day, possibly in the not too distant future, we will see our great Savior and Lord, Jesus face to face. What a great day that will be. In the meantime, we praise the Lord for His Holy Spirit which comforts, empowers, loves, and leads us in everyday life. Thanks for your posts every night. They mean so much to so many.

We are praying for healing, peace, joy, and love to continue in Devo and the entire family.

In His power and love,

Good Sunday morning, ya all!

I want to comment on the last paragraph on last nights post.  

Funny for me, many years ago when the term "Jesus Freak" was prevalent, I was called that many a times by friends and distance family members.  It used to get me so upset.  About 3 years ago I was teaching a Beth Moore Study and sharing that with the women and told them now I would entertain that title!!  I AM A JESUS FREAK!!  lol  One woman loved it so much that she bought a little disk that attaches to my car keys that say's JESUS FREAK!  Every time a worker from CVS or RiteAid asks to scan my little disk that is also on my key ring they notice it!  

Praise God, any way I can let people know I am in love with Jesus…….being that they even think I'm a freak for him, I love it!!!

God Bless,
Brenda

Hi Patti, My countless hours of research on the fish oil market have shown it's misunderstood and confusing at best. The most important ingredient is non-human produced acid EPA. The 2012, FDA approved Vascepa(prescription only) is 96% pure EPA. Current use is for high Triglycerides, but recent studies show significant benefits to inflammation, diabetes, cancers, and TBI. Exciting news

Hi Dana, please spend a little time and look up the Omega 3 drug Vascepa from Amarin. It is 96% pure EPA which is critical in reducing inflammation, triglycerides and more importantly very helpful withTBI! CNN did a story recently about EPA and its huge role with a TBI case. It's benefits are growing and appears to be a blockbuster drug in the making. No side effects whatsoever, which is a rarity these days.

I can't agree with you more when it comes to Charlotte and her positive outlook on Devon.  I do spend a good deal of time with them both and am ALWAYS amazed at how she is with him!  The Lord surely gave Devo the perfect Mom for the job!!!!!

My prayer is always that God will sustain her and Devon until he is healed!

Love to all!

Amen Dana!  Great post!  I'm with you all the way.  When I am in Devon's company all I feel like doing is praying over him every second!  I don't know what I would do if I was in his position but I will tell you I would want anyone and everyone beckoning the throne room of God on my behalf.

His patience, tenacity, and joy MUST come from the Lord!  I love that boy Devon!!  

I can't wait until he starts moving every part of his body!  I can't wait until he starts talking and travels around the world sharing his testimony!

We love and trust you Jesus for Dev's COMPLETE healing………head to toe!  Amen

Love,
