A Thank You Letter to the Church
Pastor Scott received this letter from his neighbor:
To Scott and the congregation of New Life Church:
On the morning of January 2nd, 2009 my ladder slipped as I was attempting to access the roof of my home. As a consequence, I burst the L3 vertebrae and fractured the L5 vertebrae of my spine.
My good neighbor Scott Reavely found me lying on the ground. Scott and Matt Cummins then drove me to the ER at Willamette Falls Hospital. From there I was transferred to Legacy Emanuel Hospital Trauma Unit, where I received the best trauma care available in the state of Oregon.
After a five day stay in the TRACU at Emanuel I was released to go home. I consider myself very lucky, I could have died or have been permanently paralyzed from the fall.
I understand that my name was added to your Prayer list during my hospital stay. I believe your prayers aided in my recovery. I want to thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers.
I have a long, slow recovery, 8+ weeks in a back brace and after that I don't know. I have to wait and see what the future brings. I would like to believe that things can only get better.
Thank you again for your kind thoughts and prayers.
