Reggie Keahey
The importance of memories.

A 59 year old woman from rural middle Tennessee developed a viral infection of the brain. The brain damage resulting from the infection has left her unable to produce any new memories. She is a wife, mother, grandmother, and friend.

My mother has suffered brain damage and does not recall the last year of her life or any new memories. My father is living out his sick days until his retirement to be with my mother. He has not worked since July of 2005. My father (Danny Keahey) and my mother (Reggie Keahey) both need your prayers. My mother is receiving some therapy from Vanderbilt Hospital. We are hopeful that my mother will regain her ability to retain memories and be able to live the rest of her life normally. Your prayers for both my parents and the doctors and therapists treating my mother are appreciated beyond words.

What a lovely thing for you to do for your mother. I am so proud of you for your faith and for doing this article. I know first hand what the power of prayer can do. I trust and pray each night that it is just a matter of time for things to turn around for Reggie.
Love, Aunt Sharon

I pray for Mrs. Keahey's recovery and that “The moon will shine like the sun, and the sunlight will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven full days, when the LORD binds up the bruises of his people and heals the wounds he inflicted.” Isaiah 30:26
and for Colleen and her family that “He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds (curing their pains and their sorrows.)” Psalm 146:3
Best wishes, Brooke Gorentz

I believe in the power of prayer and will keep all of your family in my thoughts and prayers. Every day there are new medical advances and every day there are miracles around us, I will pray that one of these will find it's way to your mother.

Colleen,we join with you in prayers for your mom the regain her memories, and to be restored to health. I believe in the power of prayer. God's word says " where two or more are gathered and ask in his name it shall be granted. I believe that. He has moved in my family, he brought Jerry home from Iraq,safe and sound. Jerry can testify about the near misses he encounted and was protected.

We believe in the power of prayer and that God is good. We will pray that Reggie's rehabilitation will be successful and she will regain the cognitive abilities she had before the infection.

I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Your Mom is lucky to have such love and support from her family. Hopefully the therapy will help her to regain memories. Take Care.

This is so sad to hear, Colleen. Just so you know, my mother in OH was dignosed recently with S.A.D. (social anxiety disorder). She was abused sexually as a child, and has never been able to tell even her own parents about it. It ended up costing her her marriage to my dad, and is currently affecting her ability to be employed outside the house, or even to deal with people in general outside the immediate family (which is now basically just my sister Jennifer and myself). In home work is available, but is limited for her b/c of her lack of computer experience. My faith & prayers are definitely with your mother, as well as with mine. Take care, Colleen.
