Friday, April 11, 2008 Noon update:

Wow, what a beautiful morning… it would be a great day for a hike,

It was determined to discontinue the administration of the pentobarbital chemical that has induced the comma TC is in. As of 7:30 this morning he is no longer receiving this treatment. This is a milestone that we have been anticipating, for now we will find out how TC will react on his own, to the treatment the medical staff has designed. It will be a few more days until the products they have introduced into his system start to break down and dissipate from his body. There are many scenarios that are possible, and we must wait and see what happens. His ICP is currently in the 29-30 range.
Last night was a special night for us. TC’s brothers and sisters and our neighbor were able to quietly chat about a lot of things. For some reason we always end up on a spiritual note after circling the memories of fun. I guess that is because we all have a spiritual side, and our family and friends exercise that portion of our being regularly. Additionally, TC’s ecclesiastical leaders were here. What strength and joy they bring with them. TC has achieved all the goals he has set for himself. We are so proud of him.

    Cliff and Becky,

    Although we have been away and just returned home, we were informed of TC’s accident by text message since we were out of phone range, and were so, so saddened. You have been in our thoughts and prayers continually. We were able to read the updates on the ship which was comforting to know what was happening. We are inspired by your strengh and faith, and want you to know how concerned we are and will continue to pray for all of you. Love, Barb and Chad

    Hello to the Rogers Family,

    Though we have not all met yet … please know that I ask Cecilia practically everyday, how is TC doing?! It is truly wonderful news that they have been able to stop the need of the induced comma!! I was so excited to hear that. I pray everyday for him … plus (on bias note) he can’t go anywhere. He hasn’t met Biancca Berry yet … you don’t become family and not meet me, okay … thats just unacceptable!

    *smiles* … I know he will be okay. May God rest on his and your pillows.

    Cliff and Becky,
    We just got the link to your sweet blog today. We had no idea TC’s injuries were so serious. We will be praying for him and for that miracle he predicted right after the accident. Let’s hope he was blessed with a good dose of the Laidlaw stubborn streak to help him fight through this. Love, Don and Sharee.
