Latest Update: Still need prayers, Justin flew in from Germany this AM on a medivac flight, a note from his Dad below:

"UPDATE: Justin had a tuff flight home. He went into pulmonary edema and his Oxygen saturation levels dropped to the point where Justin was fighting due to hypoxia. They got it under control and it greatly improved once they landed. He took a code 3 ride from Andrews AFB to Bethesda Hospital where he was admitted to the ICU. Kim is in the waiting room next to the ICU and I'm am leaveing our home near Valley Forge in a few minutes. Two steps forward ... one step back. ... that's the way these things go."

I guess the air compression during the flight was the cause, and thankful that they could help control it until he landed. He is now in good hands at Bethesda. Time for two more steps forward!

Prayers for Justin continue.

Justin has been in and out of ICU due to complications from a resistant infection and blood clots in his arms, heart and neck.....

He's still fighting, his parents are exhausted but constantly at his side.....They are staying at the Fischer house next to the Hospital.

On of his requests was that Megan Kelly (Fox News) send him an autograph picture, we made the request to FOX and within 24 hours Megan Kelly called both my daughter and Justin. A personalized autographed picture plus some Fox stuff was delivered to him within 48 hours.....

Justin has a great outlook though, I spoke to him briefly the other day during one of the times he was fully conscious...Each year at Halloween I put up a huge pirate display in the yard and we all dress like pirates, Justin told me that this year he was going to be there and he would be a better pirate than me because he would have a real “peg” leg! LOL.....

The doctors are still very concerned due to the severe complications.....we have hope and prayer and he is a true fighter....

Please continue to pray for him....

We thought that Justin was on the mend and effectively in the clear. He did have a few complications as the healing process proceeded but none were overwhelming.

Until yesterday.....

Out of the blue, Justin began to lose sight in both his eyes at a rapid pace. If this pace continues, doctor’s believe he could be legally blind before this weekend finishes.

The Doctor’s are baffled, they have no clue as to the cause.

Please pray for our brave soldier, Justin, that he heal quickly and his sight restored. Please forward this to whoever you would like to build this prayer chain. It is deperately needed now.

We’ve learned a lot over the past couple of months regarding blast injury recovery that our soldiers experience. Some of the injuries you would consider normal, infections from shrapnel, respitory issues etc. However, some are bizzare. For example, Justin began to have rapid bone growths in random parts of his body. Kind of like a bone spur but they would grow out of the bone to several inches in length piercing the skin overnight. The doc’s would have to cut him open and grind down the growth. This has occurred multiple times.

Evidently, this is not uncommon to wounded vets that were in a pressure blast wave.

However the scariest after his near death experiences is this vision issue....and the doctors have not a clue...

God Bless,
NeverGore

Lord Jesus,

We pray for Justin Lansford, a warrior for this nation, who has been severely injured in combat. Your heart has always appreciated soldiers, Lord, from David to Cornelius, one a shepherd raised to King and the other the first gentile through whom the message of grace was made clear.

We pray for Your grace upon Justin. He has given everything for his friends, and in that we find an illustration of Your own love for us. “Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”

Uphold him, we pray, by Your power. Guide those who minister healing to him. And, when their insight is used up, Lord, we pray for Your greater sight that sees all and understands all.

And with Justin on our hearts, we pray for all of our warriors, that they would win every engagement with their enemies. And we pray for this nation whose leaders are not worthy of the sacrifice our warriors make, for these national leaders endlessly dither selfishly on their own prestige and entitlement.

Cause Justin to be made whole, Lord Jesus. Restore his body, his sight, and his resolve.

We pray this in Your holy name; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Amen.
