Miracles And Lobos

sawyer & sherryOn Wednesday, January 2, 2019, my wife, Sherry, experienced a hemorrhagic stroke—a ruptured vessel in the brain—and had to have emergency brain surgery. She came through the surgery fine and is recovering at a quite miraculous pace. Today is Sunday, day five, of our ordeal, and though her recovery seemed to stall a bit today, we are confident she will completely recover and have full physical and mental function. It is, to me anyway, nothing short of a miracle.

Her grandson, Sawyer came for his first visit today and brought two of his teammates with him. For those who don’t know, the team I refer to is the Longview Lobos, the 2018, 6-A, Division II State Football Champions. Sherry was thrilled that the boys came to see her.

I am in in the process of writing a detailed account of all that’s happened, so please hold your questions for a few days. I hope to post the story on my blog and Facebook in a few days.

Our world stopped spinning that cold, rainy morning five days ago, but it’ll be back to full speed real soon. We’re okay, she’s getting better every day, and all we need is your prayers and love.


  1. Hello, Charles! I am sorry to learn about your wife’s stroke. One can only imagine what a tough time both of you must be having. Life is full of surprises but God is always near with His outstretch hand to provide comfort. I am happy she is recovering nicely. Stay strong. Stay positive. God bless.

    • Thank you for your kind words and prayers, Noel. And yes, we’ve put our hand in His hand and He is calming the raging waters. We’ll get though this and someday look back on the absolute miracle it is.
