I remind the readers (and new readers) to continue with your prayers for Thomas Peters and his family. Thom broke his neck in a swimming accident. Recovery is slow and hard.
The well-known canonist, Ed Peters, is Thom’s father. He is updating his Facebook page (HERE) with progress reports.
Here is a recent update:
Thomas decided to accept his docs’ recs and go with a tracheotomy now rather than waiting to try to go off breathing assist altogether later. If you know the mouth-tube thing, you know why he’s accepting the trach tonight: being able to talk sooner and to take more normal nourishment. The Mom Novena continues, of course, we still want Thom off all assisted breathing ASAP.
