DEAR EDITOR:

Aug. 16, 2012, changed Scott German’s life and his family’s forever. The physical and mental road to recovering from that accidental fall, which caused such devastating, traumatic brain injury, has been the most difficult work Scott has ever done in his life and one heck of a “roller coaster ride” for the rest of us.

 

There were so many ups and downs — getting healthy was such a huge fight with so many setbacks. Yet God heard our prayers and yours to bring Scott and all of us through one terrible ordeal after another.

 

The support from this community has been simply been overwhelming. How can we ever begin to thank you?

Please know that your gifts of gas cards, food cards and cash were so appreciated during these last nine months for traveling the thousands of miles back and forth to Toledo, Lima and Columbus to be with Scott and to his doctor and therapy appointments as well. The power of a loving God, the power of your prayer and your gracious, generous support will never be forgotten.

Our families continue to thank God every day for whatever you many have done for us on Scott’s long road to recovery. If you organized a fundraiser, if you prepared a meal, if you dropped cash in a donation bucket, if you purchased a dinners, if you said a prayer, if you paid a visit, if you gave a hug or words of encouragement or sent a card, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. There just aren’t’ enough words to ever be able to thank you, our families, our friends, our co-workers and our employers enough. We are amazed and so blessed and we love you all.

The day we’ve been waiting on finally arrived last week — clearance from his doctor to return to work. This will be difficult and exhausting so please continue to pray for Scott. The doctors say it will take at least three to four years for his brain to completely heal but getting back to work has really made him smile.

Thanks again for your part in his recovery. From “he probably won’t live through the night” to the rapid recovery he’s made, it is truly a miracle.

Our God is an awesome God and we are witness to the miracle He has granted.

Carrie and Scott German
