I wanted to update you all on Scott and Mrs. Jina McKernan.
Mrs. Jina is home and doing much better. She is slowly but surely getting used to her feeding tube, and she knows exactly where the boost is going now. I was able to visit her today, and she was jokingly upset at me because I had said they were going to "snow" her for the procedure, and she wouldn't remember a thing. Well, she said she not only remembered everything, but she Felt Everything!! She said she was fussing at the anesthesia person the whole time, but the lady told her she wasn't going to give her any more medicine. Needless to say, I am not very happy about this, And Mrs. Jina said she now has a love-hate relationship with me! I was so embarassed when she told me this even though she was joking. Please continue to pray for this precious, spirited lady and her situation - being in poor health, unable to visit her son Scott in his situation and grieving the recent loss of her husband of 60+ years.
Scott is doing so good Praise the Lord! I was able to spend some time with him and Angie Saturday night, and he was doing the best I have seen him since the wreck! It was such an encouragement to have him back to his old self. Rehab has been tough on him, and just being there (and not out and about) has had him down and discouraged at various times. Saturday evening though, he had the day off and he was able to rest a good bit. A few visitors came by that afternoon, and I was able to make it by there in the early evening. I was so blessed! He was in great spirits, and he had been catching up on everything that has transpired over the last 3-4 weeks. A lot of his memory was affected by the wreck, the concussion and the anesthesia/medications, and he was just getting a chance to put the pieces of his story together. It was obvious he was beginning to realize what God has actually done through all of this which has been very powerful. Thank you Lord for your amazing grace and love you have for us!
A Few Announcements:

2) After multiple requests, Angie is setting up an account for donations. It should be accomplished some time this week. People will be able to deposit checks or money orders directly into the account, but not cash. In the meantime, you can use Scott's Venmo account if you would like to send a gift this way.
His Venmo is: @scottmckernan (*It may ask you for the last 4 digits of his phone number to finalized the process. If it does it is 8272.)
3) Mr. Jerry McKernan's funeral/memorial has been postponed until further notice. The plan is to do it in a few months when Scott and Mrs. Jina are doing better and able to attend and play their part. Announcements will be made in the future once it is rescheduled.
Thank you everyone for your prayers and concerns for this special family.
