Day 365
Deep breath...one year ago today we weren’t sure Jon was going to make it. Honestly the nurses at the time didn’t tell me, but it was clear talking to them now and reading the medical records that it was unlikely he would make it a week. Jon remained unresponsive, Glasgow coma score between 3 & 4 for weeks, actually maybe more like a month thinking back. I like to think at this time Jon’s body was at rest and Jon’s soul was visiting with the Lord. It is a miracle Jon is still alive today. The Lord kept Jon here for a reason. And I feel it is a big reason that will be revealed even more as time passes.
I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me? Jeremiah 32:27

Day 364
A year ago tonight this journey began.

As I reflect back on this past year a heavy weight of emotions stir up. The worldly way creeps in saying, poor you, pity party, but then I turn my eyes to the Lord. Instead ,this is a time of celebrating life.
For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
2 Corinthians 4:6-7

Moments like this remind me how much healing is still to come. Expressive aphasia is no joke. Most of what comes out of Jon’s mouth is jargon, but then moments like this happen. I know God is still at work.
As we approach the one year mark since the accident (this Saturday) many emotions are stirring up. But at the same, I feel so much clarity, acceptance and peace with our new normal life. This past year has been a whirlwind of a journey and I hope to share more about this time in the future. Each day the Lord is reminding me of the miracles along the way and how to share them with the world.
In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
1 Peter 1:6–9

Thank you all for your prayers yesterday. It has been one tough week and half for Jon. He returned back to rehab late last night and seems to be much more comfortable today. Resting most of the day!
Jon you are one tough cookie. I can’t even imagine not being able to express the pain you are feeling. Pain management is a key focus moving forward! #staystrongjonnygrant

BIG prayers please! Jon has been taken back to the hospital.

This picture captures this past week in the hospital @wakemedhospitals .
I’m happy to announce Jon returned back to rehab today.

First off, thank you all for your prayers, support and love. This bump in the road has been one of the hardest challenges Jon has faced during his recovery. The risks, unknowns, and pain Jon is experiencing is very hard to handle. Thank God for giving me the knowledge & wisdom to recognize the change in Jon's leg. Getting Jon on blood thinners ASAP was key to preventing a life threatening situation. Jon seems to be feeling better. He still sleeps most of the day but seems a bit more comfortable. The plan as of now is for Jon to be discharged tomorrow and head back to rehab. Honestly I think Jon’s been enjoying the rest since he has been going non stop in rehab since the accident almost a year ago. Please keep the prayers coming as it will take months for the body to absorb the massive clot in his leg. I know Jon is a warrior especially since he is a Navy Seal, but, by golly, he has been through it all. He is one strong willed, determined, handsome fighter.

Day 346

Thank you each & everyone for your outpouring of love & concern for Jon. It has been a rough week. We have come full circle back to the hospital that I believe saved Jon’s life in the most critical hours, days, and weeks after the accident. To be honest, the last 24 hours has been full of uncertainties, advocating, and not leaving Jon’s side. It started Tuesday afternoon as we sat outside after his dinner and I noticed his right leg was swollen, warm to the touch, and a bit discolored. I knew something was up. Let alone this right hip has what’s called HO or some may say MO. Fast forward to last night. Ultrasound came back positive for DVT. The scary part is how large this blood clot is. We are still navigating through what will work best for Jon, but for now, we turn our eyes towards the Lord.


I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. John 16:33

Starting the week off with a strike. 🎳

Today marks 11 months since the night Jon was a passenger in a horrific car accident. Those few seconds changed his life forever. To say this journey has been easy would be far from the truth. As I described it to my friend today;
There are a ton of things I think are best left unsaid about this journey especially on social media. This healing process is one emotional, scary, sad, ugly experience. Jon's journey reminds me a lot of the story of Job in the Bible.
The things that I haven’t shared aren’t kept unsaid to be hidden, but honestly are some of the toughest moments & experiences and too difficult to put into words. My heart feels pulled to one day share this journey: the good, the bad and the ugly giving testimony to the Lord standing by our side. I truly believe God has a purpose and all Glory be to the Lord.
