Allison Good, Aaron's Sister

On December 26, 2011, Aaron Good's sister, Allison (age 22), went to the hospital with stroke like symptoms related to a brain malformation. In addition to the ailment, she is three months pregnant. She was placed on a ventilator to control her breathing.

Since that time she has remained in ICU. They have drained blood and CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) from her head. She is in an induced coma and early on was responsive with hand squeezes and head shakes. She has been through MRI's and several other tests and even underwent a procedure to address aneurisms in her brain. The procedure was successful.

She is still in an induced coma in Pittsburgh and the doctors have said it's in God's hands and that they have done pretty much all they can do.

As you can imagine, the situation is very delicate and Aaron is in Pittsburgh with his family and sister in the hospital. T. Pope prayed with him and asked how he was doing. His answer:

"Relying on the Lord's strength. There's a lot of uncertainty about her current condition...God is good. To be honest, I'm hurting inside, as I'm sure everyone else is but it only increases my trust in our sovereign God."

We will do our best to keep you updated as you pray. Thank you SO much for your prayers and support.
