Thank you

I am not sure how many people will read this or even know its here, but now that everything is over we as a family would like to take this time to tell you all how thankful we are. We are thankful for the friendships we made over the past few months, the long lost friends we found, and family members we haven't seen in some time.

All the prayers and well wishes were truly very helpful in getting us through this tragic time. I now know the meaning of you don't know what you had until it is gone. I miss you my brother but I know you are in a better place. Just keep a lookout for all your friends and family that have traveled with you on your journey called life.

Your brother and friend Craig

Okay I said it would be iffy when this was updated when we got home. Dave is still the same as when we left him. The doctors did another EEG and the results were the same as the first one. His Uncle Jeff made it in from TX on Tuesday to see him. He is still getting many visitors which is good.
On a happy note he did celebrate his 31st birthday on Sunday. He again had many visitors and many gifts. One of the nurses that has been working with gave him a bottle of Kaluah and a bag of Oreos. We all know how much Dave liked his Oreos. Yogi started the happy birthday song which I am personally disappointed I missed, but dad said it was a very good rendition like only Yogi could do. He also received a box of thin mints from the girl scout cookies collection. I am sure he would really enjoy them instead of the liquid milk shake he is getting now. That is all I know for now without being there directly. Again thank you all for caring for Dave and all the family it is greatly appreciated.

Wednesday night

Sorry to all that we haven't posted anything for a while. It has been a week with many meetings with doctors and family. Today was an eventful day because David received his purple heart. It was an experience that I will not soon forget if I ever do. I am so very proud of my brother and all the military people that put their lives on the line for our freedoms every day. All military people are heros in my book and I will not forget what each and everyone does for me, my family, and all the other families out there. Matt and I go home tomorrow knowing that David is in the best hands he can be in. With that being said the blog might lag a little behind so as of right now he is still in critical condition, he is still comatose, but he is resting peacefully.
To all the people who are following this know that all the prayers, thoughts, and gratitude that we have received since the crash have been greatly appreciated through this trying time. And if you see a service member walking down the road or in the mall take the time to thank them for what they do. It goes a long way for them to know we care.

Saturday evening

Hi, Its Melissa.

I just wanted to tell everyone that before I left Saturday evening and I was saying my goodnights to Dave, I was holding his left hand and telling him how proud I was of him/how strong of a man he is/how loved he is..... All of a sudden he curled his fingers around my hand and lifted it up off the bed ever so slightly, not only once but twice (boy, did it make me squeal with joy!!!!) I truly believe he heard me talking to him and I left the hospital last night with peace in my heart.
Thank you for your continued prayers of recovery, support and love....we're passing it on onto Dave!
