Super Bowl Pizza Party

All any Super Bowl party needs is a television, chips and dip and pizza, right? Well, don’t start Kaepernicking in victory quite yet.

Eye-catching decor, a unique menu, custom entertainment, wearable favors and fun invitations can make your party stand out from the standard last NFL season hurrah.

According to the USDA, the Super Bowl is the second-largest food consumption holiday of the year behind Thanksgiving and ahead of Christmas Day.

Danny to continue to impress

Tuesday December 4, 2012

Written 1 hour ago

All that the doctors, nurses, therapists, and surgeons can say is that they are very impressed with the progress Danny has made! We want Danny to continue to impress them!

The swelling in Danny’s brain is starting to go down. The sooner, the better, and then the neurosurgeon will be able to reinsert his skull. He has been accepted to go to Dodd Hall, which is phenomenal! That’s the best scenario in which we could ask! Once he is moved there, which will happen tomorrow, according to the information we received today, he will get 3-4 hours per day of intense therapy. WE ARE STILL REQUESTING DANNY HAVE NO VISITORS DUE TO LOW IMMUNE SYSTEM.

Today, we handed Danny a wedding photo of he and Karen. He pulled it up to his face and held it there. It was a very touching moment. Then he looked over at his mom and gave her a “Dutch rub!” Pretty funny, Danny!

Our prayer requests today:
*Danny’s lung infection clears up (better today than yesterday!)
*Danny’s brain and brain stem will completely heal
*Danny will not become too frightened or frustrated as he becomes more aware of his surroundings and doesn’t understand where he is or why he is there, and what has happened to his body.
*Landon will heal quickly from his walking pneumonia, and Emmaretta will heal quickly from her ear infection, and Mommy (Karen) stays healthy.
*Danny will have an easy transition moving to Dodd Hall.

Ephesians 6:10 reads, “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.” Our family is relying on God for His strength to get Danny through this, and for our family as well. Thank you all for your prayers!

Stocking Stuffer

Like all good legends, the story of the Christmas stocking stuffer has many versions. The original story has evolved to allow for differences in culture, time period, and good old fashioned story-telling. So it’s hard to pin down exactly how the Christmas stocking tradition started, but too much exactness isn’t any fun, anyway. And certainly not in the spirit of Christmas. So stop by Villa Pizza and get yours before you forget.

Dan Thompson Update

Donations for the Thompson family

Donations are now being accepted for Dan and Karen Thompson at Eagle Pizza. Stop by Eagle Pizza anytime during normal operations to donate to help the Thompson family.

Danny did well through the night. He is still fighting the infection in his lungs and sinuses, but the antibiotics should take care of it soon! He had a trach put in this morning and the ventilator removed. The respiratory specialist said they have the trach set to allow him to self monitor his breathing and he seems to be doing well on his own! The feeding tube was also removed this morning as they put a feeding peg directly into his stomach. The doctor is hopeful that both of these procedures will help quicken his recovery. It is such a blessing to see Danny’s precious face again, now that everything has been removed from his nose and mouth!

Continue to pray for Danny’s healing…brain swelling to subside and his body to begin and continue to regulate itself. It will be a long road ahead, but God has brought Danny so far in a week’s time! Thank you for your continued prayers and encouragement.

A favorite song of ours by Chris Tomlin says it best today:

“Our God is greater! Our God is stronger! God, You are higher than any other. Our God is healer; awesome in power; our God, our God. And if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us? And if our God is with us, then who could stand against?”

“I will proclaim Your greatness, my God and king; I will thank you forever and ever. Every day I will praise You forever and ever. The Lord is great and is to be highly praised; His greatness is beyond understanding.” Psalm 145:1-3

Background Story

The accident:  On November 18, 2012, Dan was helping a neighbor trim a tree.  While he was holding the ladder, a large tree branch fell and knocked Dan to the ground, making his head hit the concrete sidewalk.  He was life-flighted to OSU Medical Center, where they ascertained he needed immediate surgery to remove part of his skull to alleviate the pressure of blood flow on the brain, a subdural hematoma.  Through ct scans, the neurosurgeon realized that major damage had been realized by  the right side of the brain, along with many skull fractures, including the base of the skull, and the bone around the carotid artery and the jugular vein.
We are steadfastly praying around the clock that Dan is completely healed.  The doctors tell us that he has extensive brain damage, but our Father God is a great healer!The family certainly welcomes your visits to the SICU waiting room, however no visits are allowed for Dan in ICU.  The doctors have restricted his visitors for the next few days.Daily updates on Dan’s recovery can be found at:http://eagles-pizza.com/
