There's a whole lot of us out here praying for you after being alerted by prayer chains. Rob is being held in the very hands and heart of God and we are praying for complete healing according to God's will. We will pray for strength for Dena as well as you go through this very hard time. You are being lifted up in prayer and love. May God give every person who works with Rob great wisdom and compassion and skill.

i hope all goes well for the MRI and that you get good news. My husband was wounded in January and we;ve spent many months at BAMC, TX. Please, Please be vigallent in being your husbands patient advocate. I've learned the hardway here at Brooke Army Med. Center that the case managers, company, and doctors don't always do what's correct for the long run, but easier in the short run. I pray that your remains strong in this trying time. I KNOW how hard it is, and its okay, healthy and relaxing to break down once in a while. Make sure to take care of yourself, or let others take care of you while you tend to your husband. good luck, feel free to email if you need another wounded warrior's spouses input.

Rob and Dena,
I just want you both to know how very much I love the both of you. You are two special people, and have touched more lives than you'll ever know. I know God isn't finished with you, Rob, and part of his plan is to help Dena raise those two beautiful daughters. They need you!!!! Again, I love you both sooo much and I'm VERY proud of you. The days ahead will be long and hard, but I know you're both up to the assignment. Just let me know how and when you want me to help. Lots of hugs and kisses, to help take the ouchies away. God bless you and those two little dolls. Love, Mom Bev
