There are only two more days needed for in-home visits with Mesharia this week! Anyone up for the task? It is only from 10am-1pm. Also, please know that the lunch I mentioned last message would only be something small and for just Mesharia, not the while family. You can also help Prep her something at the house, if you prefer! Please don't bring a large meal, though.[...]
You Guys!!! Mesharia is going great, all things considered. I've edited her needs for daily in-home visits. She currently only needs help from 10am-1pm on week days. If you would like to also bring a HEALTHY prepped meal for her when you come, then that would be a plus, and super helpful. If you can even come for a few hours, that would be beneficial for her as well. Please check the calendar to sign up for needs. Thank you so much![...]
Great news! The strong, persistent, and determined Mesharia you know is coming home this week! This won't be with some much needed help, though. Although Mesharia will be in her own home, she is going to need 24hr care. I have added NEEDS to the calendar for Mon-Fri, 8am-6pm. Mesharia will need help with almost all tasks, getting in and out of her wheel chair, help with her back brace .. And a whole lot of LOVE. This process will be physically and emotionally satisfying at times for her and draining at others. Helpers need to be able to endure anything that may come their way in these circumstances. Please consider being a daily helper for Mesharia and/or continuing to join us in prayer for endurance and Thanksgiving for such amazing strides! It was so encouraging to see her moving all of her limbs yesterday![...]
Thank you all for the heartfelt messages for the Rol family and for the donations you've made! We're currently at 7% of our goal! The medical bills have come spilling in and the time lost from work for both Mesharia and Todd have already had such a difficult impact on them. It is unsure of when Mesharia will be self sufficient and mobile again, and able to work and care for her family. Please help by SHARING this page for others to follow and donate. There is also an additional meal train set up for Todd and the kids now that Mesharia has been moved to the rehab facility, set up by Southeast church : https://mealtrain.com/vwrqy8[...]
Mesharia is doing pretty well at rehab. They work her hard here but she is tough and determined. She has to wear a back brace, neck brace, and can't use her right leg, or right arm, but they still find plenty of exercises to do with her. They have discovered a new problem that we would appreciate prayer for. She is having problems with her eyes. One of her eyes isn't tracking well. They aren't sure of the cause. She, as well as the rest of us are so appreciative of your support. Thank you![...]
We are thanking God today as Mesharia takes another giant step forward. She was moved to Spaulding Rehabilitation Facility in Denver. Please continue to pray for her continued healing as well as for strength and endurance as she works her way down this challenging road. We are all so grateful for your prayers and support! [...]
Today's update for Mesharia is both good and difficult. She is through with her surgeries, which is cause for celebration. However, looking down the long road to recovery is overwhelming for everyone, especially Mesharia. The past three weeks have been a fight for her, yet they are barely a scrimmage in the long battle ahead. Please continue to pray for her physical and emotional healing as well as for that of her family.[...]
