Thank you so much for supporting Ryan and his family.   This past weekend Ryan, his brother Brett, and friends went on a camping trip to Wisconsin.   On the evening of Saturday, July 30, Ryan hit his head  while swimming in a lake and immediately lost the use of his arms and legs.   Although he regained consciousnesses  fairly soon after the incident, he coudln't move.  The boys called an ambulance, which resulted in a life flight to a hosptial in Madison.  An MRI showed a C5 burst fracture in his spine, along with some damage to the C6.  He went into surgery around midnight, which went well, but no changes yet.  The next 48 hours will be crucial.  Doctors will be looking for some mobility as the pressure and compression on the nerve hopefully let up.   Please pray for Ryan to gain feeling in all extremedies.  Pray for a miracle.  Pray for peace for his family who is very scared.
