Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. On Wednesday March 17th, 2021 a "quick" run to town became a life changing moment for Dakota when he and his motorcycle collided with a truck and trailer. As his parents and family arrived at the hospital the prognosis from the doctor was very grim as the remainder of the healthcare team rushed him to surgery to perform an emergency craniotomy. There are internal injuries too numerous to list, but they were secondary to the swelling on his brain that continued almost faster than they could work. Our hope was on one moment at a time. The days and nights have been long and filled with many saints on their knees in prayer. Today almost a week later Dakota has intentionally opened his eyes to his moma's voice for the very first time. The journey before Dakota and his family is still very long, the moments and days ahead are still very crucial and there is still alot to assess as his head clears. But no matter the journey we are certain the possibility would not be as bright as it is today without the prayers of so many and the healing power of our Lord Jesus Christ. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Now more than ever Dakota needs each of us in his corner so we hope you will utilize this site to help us stand in the gap by signing up to visit him, posting your words of encouragement and sharing scriptures and prayer to encourage his strength. Thank you for visiting because we could not do it without you.
