Our dad (Pastor John) suffered from a ruptured brain aneurysm/stroke on September 11, 2017. After a month at North Memorial Hospital ICU in Robbinsdale, he became stable enough to continue his recovery in a new facility. On October 10, 2017 our dad moved to Regency Hospital (Long Term & Acute Care) in Golden Valley. During the two months at Regency he began to wake up and we started seeing some positive signs towards his recovery. We've been told it takes a long time for the brain to heal, so when we saw some movement in his limbs and progression was happening with his trach we were so very thankful. My dad was now ready to move onto the next phase of his journey to a TCU (Transitional Care Unit). On December 13, 2017, he made the move to North Ridge Health and Rehab TCU in New Hope where he currently is being cared for with increased physical and occupational therapy. Over the last four months, God has given our dad the strength to climb some very big mountains to get to where he is today. Our family has been blessed to be able to experience those everyday small miracles of life reminding us that God is the Great Physician. We are a family of faith that believes in God’s miraculous healing power. We believe that by God’s stripes our dad will be completely healed from the crown of his head to the tip of his toes. We continually see positive signs, but know this will be a marathon and not a sprint. Our dad's journey will take time, support and lots of prayers. In our dad’s 30+ years in ministry, he has cared for so many people and we are so thankful for those who now stand beside him extending love, prayers and support. We are forever grateful!
