If you're like me, the first thing you think of when you hear the word 'halo' is something like what you'd find hovering above an angel in a pre-Renaissance painting. Some have experienced the other kind, as in the photo below, when they need to have a part of their body stabilized to allow healing of bruised nerves and fractured vertebrae. That is the case with Noah. We are told that he will be in traction for at least a month, with this contraption keeping his neck/head rigid. He is 10 years old. This is no easy thing for anyone, but a ten year old boy? A ten year old boy whose head hurts when he laughs, but who needs laughter to keep his spirits up. Quite a dilemma.
Please continue to pray for this youngster. You can read the full story here on my blog. We praise God for His grace in sparing Noah's life and not allowing any major organ damage. As I said before, I don't know any word other than 'miracle' to describe it.
