Good news about Bob Robinson

posted by xscot mcknight

2/28 update on Bob Robinson, and a call to prayer and fasting:
Linda Robinson reports that the ICU nurses had Bob sitting up in a chair this morning! He was calm, alert, non-verbally responsive, and showed various emotions (happy to see people, sad about his current state, etc.). Two good bowel movements show that his digestive system seems to be working well again. He kept trying to speak, but because of the respirator he can’t do so. He was also trying to write, but couldn’t hold the pen tightly enough because of swelling and all the needles and tubes attached. He could understand that Linda was only permitted to stay for a certain amount of time, and was watching the clock–he clearly didn’t want her to leave. All of this is very encouraging!
Yesterday we had decided to set Friday, March 3, aside as a CCO day of prayer and fasting for Bob. This good news only makes us more committed to coming before the Lord to thank Him for this progress in Bob’s condition and to implore God for a full recovery for Bob. If you are willing and able, please consider skipping a meal or two and/or setting aside time to pray especially for Bob. Here in the CCO office, we’ve scheduled three optional prayer meetings in the conference room:
9:00 to 9:30 AM
12:00 to 12:30 PM
3:30 to 4:00 PM
You may want to schedule some time individually or with others to pray for Bob on Friday. Keep him in prayer at other times, too!

Great news from Wendy!! I saw him yesterday and he looked great.
Today is Thursday, March 2 and I am happy to report great news! Bob was breathing on his own today for several hours!! The trach is still in, but they can cover it to let him breathe himself. He was doing well, Linda said, just tired from all that activity! They are weaning him off his medication (he’s almost completely off the sedation), so he is awake much more and communicating with Linda and the nurses by mouthing words and writing a bit. Linda thinks if she gets him his computer he would be “blogging all day long.” The doctors are hoping to insert the stomach tube tomorrow, so he will no longer be fed through the nose tube going down his throat.
Hopefully, if all goes well, he will be well enough for Trey, Joel and Kaira to visit. Please pray that the Lord continues to shelter them. There is a possibility if all continues to improve, that Bob can move into rehab next week for occupational and physical therapy to aid his recovery. Thank God for this turn of events and please pray for Bob’s continual healing. God is faithful and he is El Roi — “the God who sees” the suffering and sorrow and needs of his people.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
