Update on Zach/BigmanforChrist-UPDATED

I just wanted to let you know that Zach is in the hospital today.  His wife came home yesterday afternoon to find him on the couch, unable to speak or move.  He is doing a little better now, a little more responsive, and is having an MRI done to check for tumors pressing on the spine or brain.  I'll let you all know how he's doing as I get updates.

Please keep Zach and his wife Janelle in your prayers and thoughts.  Send them some positive energy, or bright sparks of life, or whatever feels right to you.  I am going to spend my morning asking the universe for healing for this young man.

Thanks, and lots o' love~AA

UPDATE:  Good news!  The MRI showed no tumors affecting the brain or spine.  They think it's possible that  a recent change in his pain meds may have triggered the problems.  He is talking more, and they hope he'll be walking normally again ina few days.  They will be seeing a neurologist tomorrow, just to make sure they haven't missed anything.  His wife is going to go home for a shower and some rest, after being up all night.

Anna,

Thanks for the update on Zach.  How terrible for his wife.  Many hopeful thoughts of healing and ((HUGS) of comfort for the family....I agree, it is a good way to spend time wishing well for others.

I'll pray, send good vibes, sparkles of light, everything I have will be directed Zach's way. 

Thank you so much for the update. I always fear for those members who cannont get on the forum, or if they pass, like our dear Vickilg, and loved ones don't know how to let us know; we sometimes never find out; so I'm glad you are in-touch.

Sounds like things are not as bad as first feared. I will keep Zachary in my thoughts and prayers. He's just so young to have to be dealing with these problems. Best of luck buddy.
