Tom (IT) was in a horrible motorcycle accident sometime after midnight on Sunday Oct 2 on St. Simons Island, Georgia. He was airlifted to Savanah Memorial Hospital where he has been on life support and ventilator. On Monday, Oct 3, an epidural clot was removed. He has been un-responsive except for a few movements of the hand and twitches around the eye when sedation was withheld.

Cindy, Harry, Kim, Matthew, Luke and John were all able to see him by Sunday afternoon. Jacob and Nick flew to Savannah from overseas in time to visit a few hours until Hurricane Matthew forced evacuations from the area. Kim and her aunt Nancy decided to remain in Savannah in a local hotel where many first responders are staying. As of today, Saturday Oct 8, Tom’s prognosis still is not good. His condition would not allow him to be transported, and no one is allowed in the hospital until after the crisis has passed and the hospital is fully staffed. We are receiving daily updates from Tom’s nurse.

Kim and Nancy are reporting in regularly. At this writing, the hotel has lost electricity and is using generators only on the main floor. They have plenty of food and water, but reports on WTOC local television indicate it will be several days before the police will allow anyone to re-enter the area and curfews are still in place. They still have cell phone service, but ask us all to please restrain from calling since they need to conserve battery power and be available for calls from the nurse.

We are still praying for a miracle, that God will heal Tom and ask everyone to continue praying. Please direct people to this site for any updates. Thank you for all your expressions of love and concern.
