**UPDATE** AUSTIN MORRISON
Cowboys Family and Friends,
It has been some time since we last updated you on the condition of Austin Morrison. Around the end of August, the traumatic medical staff at the Huntsville facility informed his parents that they had done all that they could do. At that time, Austin was still primarily unresponsive, remained mostly comatose and, as far as his prognosis, was still labeled in a "vegetative state". The recommendation was to take Austin home. His parents, however, knowing the miracle of his story, were convinced that more could be accomplished. So, in late August, Austin left the Huntsville hospital to enter a Birmingham rehab facility. Upon his arrival in Birmingham, Austin experienced several setbacks, he had another bout with pneumonia, had to have feeding tubes "re-inserted", had surgery to remove a growth from his lung, and overall, continued to struggle. Nevertheless, everyday, he also continued to show signs of his will to live.......not just to live, but live a full life.
This is where the story begins to get good!!!! Over the past several weeks, Austin began to show responsiveness to many stimuli. In a period of weeks, Austin went from barely opening his eyes and moving "two" fingers to tossing a nerf football, shaking hands with his visitors, being completely removed from his trach, mumbling words, responding to commands and even STANDING (with assistance) on his feet!!!!! In fact, his improvement was such that on September 27th, Austin was transferred to Shepard's Rehab in Atlanta, Georgia. This, as many of you are aware, is huge. Shepard's is a renowned facility that produces extraordinary results.
Each day Austin continues to win the battle to overcome all odds. We fully expect (and claim) that Austin Morrison will soon walk out of the facility as a human testimony that God is still in the business of miracles. There is still a long road ahead for both Austin and his family. They certainly need your continued prayers and any financial help you may be able to send. However, the prayers of the faithful produces much, and as you can see, it is producing!!! Please continue to hold Austin and his family up.
