Sorry everyone has been on the back burner with the latest news, but here is the latest. Ron is being dismissed from the hospital next week and will continue his recovery through the day program. He will be in Atlanta for another month. If everything works out the way it should Ron should be back in Thomasville shortly thereafter. Everyone please continue to pray for Ron and the Powell family for a speedy recovery. Let's leave it in God's hands and see a miracle happen before our eyes. Once again the Powell family says "thank you" for the thoughts, prayers, wishes, visits, and motivation to help Ron through this time. It is greatly appreciated.

Friday Update...Part 2

Today has not been so well after all. Ron and the Powell family have been told that they might have to redo his entire back surgery due to complications. This would be a huge setback in his rehabilitation. At this time all we know that another surgery could be in store for Ron..but we are not 100% sure. Please keep Ron and the Powell family in your thoughts and prayers in hopes that God can perform a miracle by his grace and heal Ron from anymore surgery or pain.


Ron is doing really well as of this morning. He had a very good day yesterday. He was in good spirits after some Senior Life employees visited him on his birthday and presented him with his gifts from the company. We is also awaiting the arrival of the group of employees today that left to visit with Ron at Shepherd's. Ron wants to thank everyone for the birthday wishes and the sincere thoughts and prayers. Please continue to pray for Ron over the weekend in that God will provide serenity for him from pain and discomfort.

Ron's Birthday!

Today is Ron's birthday for everyone that doesn't know! Please take time to wish Ron a very Happy Birthday! Although with the joy of Ron's birthday today, he is in a lot of severe pain due to his back. They are bringing in a specialist to look at Ron's back to make sure that everything from the surgery is healing properly. With this said, please continue to pray for Ron and the Powell family. Ron told me to personally thank everyone for all the prayers, thoughts, and wishes!

The weekend seemed to be tough for Ron as he is battling with blot clots in both of his legs. The doctors are doing everything they can to help remove the blood clots. With this said, Ron is doing much better today than he did all weekend long. Please continue to pray for Ron in hopes that his week is much better than this past weekend. As always, the Powell family greatly appreciates everyone's love and compassion for Ron.

Thursday Update

Today has been a great day! Ron was told great news today by the doctors at Shepherd's. They have told him that he will be getting more and more feeling back into his legs as time goes on. They have also told him that he will be able to walk with braces! All of this is done through God and the power of prayer. Please continue to pray for Ron and the Powell family as his road to recovery is conquered. Ron also wants everyone to know without your prayers, none of this could be achieved. Once again, please continue to pray for Ron and the Powell family during this time.
