We were back to Shepherd again on Friday. Great feedback from his testing. With some adjustments he should manage college just fine. Glad we got to see most of the staff who cared for Will. The soccer team have been busy training and Will has been joining in with quite a lot of it. He has protective head gear!! We went to church today with the Borchers family and Will, Jez and Channing all cane too. So much to thank God for! Naturally, we had to have lunch at North Georgia BBQ at Helen. Yum! Xx

Fun with the soccer boys, Scott, Audrey, Steven, Billy and Carlita at Lake Yonah. So many good laughs and great weather. A great team building event. I managed to stay on the back of a jet ski which launched 4metres into the air after hitting the wake off the speed boat! My arms hurt now. Will has taken great pictures and videos which I am sure will find their way onto the EC Instagram page ❤️

Will has been on the team building trip today to the Olympic white water rafting site. He has been taking pictures of the soccer team and cheering them on. It’s a shame he couldn’t take part but I’m so grateful that he was there and able to be as large as life. So proud of him as he continues to heal. My Daughter Hattie is in LA and having a blast with her dance company who are performing at Disney tomorrow. Proud Mum of both xx

Will and I are back in Georgia. We have had a really busy few days with the new Freshmen Soccer players. Audrey and I have cleaned up the Soccer locker rooms and Steven helped us to lay some new flooring in the Boot room. Everything looks great and Coach Scott is pleased. I’ve helped the boys to settle in to their accommodation and have been running around in my hire car all over the place! The boys are off on a team building trip today and Will is going with them to take photos etc. He is restricted in some activities because of his head injury but he has been running every morning, averaging 7 min miles. I couldn’t keep up with that pace in this humidity! More journals to come x

Will managed the “Cross Bay Walk” with over 100 people yesterday. They walked through water and plenty of dogs to amuse him. Lovely weather for it. England versus New Zealand today in the cricket World Cup Final. We pray for England to win it for the first time!! 🙏❤️🏏🏏

Hello friends. Will has been climbing mountains with my family and our dog Rupert. Luke stayed with us for a weekend and Will has been running to increase his fitness levels. He’s walking across Morecambe Bay today with his friend and their family. A guide takes them over because of the quick sands. It’s  9 miles but he is determined to succeed in this challenge. He will, he’s #God’s Will xx

I must add that we have rested and spent time with our lovely family. Chris, Gill, Libby and my Mum Beth have wrapped us in their care since we came home. We are blessed to be loved and Will, Hattie and myself are grateful for all the cards and messages that have come to us or my Mum. Thank you all so much. The journey is not finished but the prayers and well wishes of those who care mean so much xx

For those who may not know about yesterday’s update, Will’s first CT scan showed a 10mm displacement. Thankfully by late afternoon that had reduced to only 1mm. That has not changed since last night. Please keep praying for the swelling to completely dissipate so further recovery can occur. 
William’s Story

Site created on April 1, 2019

Early on Sunday morning, March 31st, Will was involved in a car accident. As a result he sustained severe and life-threatening injuries. Surgeons were able to repair internal injuries to his liver and spleen. In order to deal with his head injury, a section of his skull was removed to reduce pressure on the brain. His brain trauma is serious, and his recovery will take time.

We are using this page to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement and will share these with Will in time.
