My heart is broken.....

Hi, we just got word from Clint moments ago and I wish I could say I have good news.
They brought her to Emmanuel Hospital, here in Portland because they were unable to land in Seattle. Emmanuel was one of the possibilities they were considering if she couldn't go to Seattle.

The doctors just got through doing her assessment and looking at all of her cat scans and x-rays.
Clint said it is much worse than they had originally thought. She has a severe spinal injury and her brain injury is not looking good. They told Clint, at this point she may never walk or talk again.

It is still incredibly early, so that's all we know, Clint was very exhausted!!! His uncle from here in Vancouver was going to be picking him up and taking him to his Grandmas, that lives here in Vancouver as well. The doctors said at this point absolutely no visitors.....Clint will not even be able to see her today.

I don't even know what else to say right now.....except that my heart is broken into a million pieces, as I' sure yours is as well, so lets just take this hour by hour, day by day and PRAY!!!

The doctors said she will be at Emanuel for several weeks, probably even a couple of months. I'm glad she is close



  1. Our hearts and prayers are with your Family!

  4. My sweet Tawny,
    My hear is breaking with yours. I will be as strong a pillar as you need me to be through God's strength. I pray for Krissy every minute and all the family as we trust in our healer and mighty Lord! I am here for you always and will do whatever I can to help you and everyone else through this very difficult time. Krissy is so strong and such a fighter and I have to believe that her strength in God will carry her through. It is so uplifting to hear all the people praying for her and the family. I love you much.

  6. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your relatives. God has mighty strength and can do awesome things. God has done many amazing things for people I hope once she has rested and has had time to recover that she will be completely healed.

    Kris as well as her family is on alot of prayer chains, Alaska, Oregon, Colorado and many other places.
