Day 13

Your prayers and positive thoughts have brought Isaac good days! Yesterday he was able to tolerate being off sedation for most of the day and today he was off of his sedation medications entirely. They also did a trial of being off the life support yesterday which he tolerated for a few hours. Today he has been off the life support and breathing on his own all day! It is such a relief to see Isaac relaxed today as the struggle for him to remain stable off of the sedation medications was incredibly emotional. At this time Isaac is no longer in a medically induced coma, but remains in a coma related to his brain injuries and damage. We truly believe the community coming together this week has impacted Isaac and our family is more ways than we could ever have imagined. Some one wrote to us on here about Isaac's 'marathon'. "The marathon is nothing more than a series of lots of sprints, combined with a lot of support, determination, and hope." With your support and positive hopes, Isaac will continue to overcome those series of sprints-which may be small accomplishments and day to day, but signs of recovery for our loving, caring, amazing husband, son, brother, friend, father, and teammate: Isaac.

Shame on the people who are giving money this man! He threw the first punch!!! He asked for it. If you start a fight you should be prepared for the consequences. This makes me sick that people are supporting this man for the actions he made as an aggressive drunk! SHAME HIM. Nothing about Mankato's reaction to this makes me proud I went to school there!

We are so glad to hear that Isaac has come off life support. While still a long road, it is good news. There is a special kind of spirit in the type of person it takes to play a linebacker. It's that spirit and determination of being that will drive him forward thru this time of healing.

Thanks be to God for the positive signs! I've heard that it's not always about the speed you sprint in a journey like this but the steady pace you keep in the marathon--kind of like the children's story about the tortoise and the hare. Slow and steady wins the race. Here's to hoping for more good news and a steady recovery.
