Roger Mayes sends along this update to his earlier prayer request for Pastor Vic Rogers:
Pastor finally gets his halo!
On April 23 Pastor Victor Rogers fell off the bottom step of a stepstool face-down onto concrete.
Initially doctors thought that he had a stroke. There is no paralysis. After more examinations, x-rays showed that he had cracked his C2 vertebra in his neck. Doctors surgically implanted a halo ten days ago. Victor will have to possibly wear the halo for an extended period of time.
His right hand continues to be swollen which makes it hard for him to grasp a walker. He cannot walk without assistance from therapists due to the weight of the halo.
He is back in Riverside County Regional Hospital in Moreno Valley, California, after being in a nursing home for three days. Victor is there due to kidney and bladder complications. At times he is putting scriptures together for sermons. At other times, his speech doesn’t make much sense.
Doctors believe that this problem is related to the pain killers given him in the last three weeks. Doctors are now restricting all pain medicines.
Vivien, and daughters, Ruth Ann and Sharon, want to express their thanks to all for their prayers for Vic.
