If you have facebook and know how to pray, you should join this facebook group for Lane and Emily. It’s where the family is releasing any news and prayer requests. For those who don’t know, here’s the situation:
Lane and Emily (married for a year) are friends of ours from school. I wished Lane a good trip the morning of December 26th as we stopped in the hall to chat. He was loading up the car for a trip to see family. Somewhere near Cleveland, they were in a horrible wreck and were rushed to two different hospitals. Emily went in for surgery and was discharged the same night to make her way to the hospital where they were treating Lane. Lane had emergency brain surgery to stop bleeding and remove skull fragments from his brain. He was in a medically induced coma for about 2 days (not sure on that timeframe) while the brain swelling went down. He is currently on pain killers only, and is showing more and more signs of life (His eyes opened a little today). There is still a lot of swelling. Emily has not left his side as far as I know. There are at least a few family members there to support the young couple.
Please pray for Lane’s healing and Emily’s emotional strength. If she feels like what she’s writing, Emily is doing a great job trusting God in all this, but that doesn’t mean it’s not the hardest thing she’s ever done.
