Run the Course : the Recovery of Jason Wichman

Moving Day July 23, 2013

by Lisa Cox on 07/23/13

From the bottom of my heart, I don't have the words to express how appreciative I am of everyone and the support and prayers you have shared with my family and my brother over the past 5 months since the accident in Alaska.  Thank you so, so much!
     Jason is going to be moving today.  This will be the fourth facility he has been in.  We knew that his time at Craig Hospital would be short, mostly focused on preparation for life outside of a hospital setting. 
     Today, he is going to a facility called Care Meridian in Denver.  I am not sure of how long he is to be there.  Please pray for peace and comfort and favor for Jason and my mom, Jacquie, as they move and get acquainted with their new surroundings.  Also, pray for provision for my mom so she can continue to stay with Jason and take care of him.
     As far as his progress in healing goes, Jason has continued moving forward.  Praise God!!  The other day he had to cough and was having a hard time with it.  He then clearly called out, "Mom!  Mom!" in order to get help.  She was able to sit him up and help him through this cough.  What a testament!  He knew she was there and able to help him when he needed. Also, its a great measure to the amount of healing that has gone on!!
     Everyday is something new.  The process may be long, but the journey is worth it.  To witness the miracles in healing, the love and kindness of others, the encouragement from people we have never even met...  I just thank the Lord Jesus for His never ending grace and mercy in our lives.  Today is a good day to stop and count the blessings He has given to us all.

I am so pleased to hear Jason is doing better. I know the way is slow but every step forward is a positive thing. I know having his mom there is a big help, God bless her. A Mothers love is a wonderful thing. My prayers are with him and all of the family.

As for Jason's family and friends, we pray for and expect full recovery. Jason is a hard worker and the head of his household, and its only source of income. During this time of recovery, he will be unable to support his family.  Monthly bills and hospital bills are mounting daily. The doctors say that every patient is different, especially concerning the time it takes them to heal. Please consider donating to the Jason Wichman Recovery Fund to help him and his family during this difficult time.  
Jason had a severe blow to the brain, All his other injuries are very fixable. The Doctors, at first, were not giving him much chance of making it through 48 hours, but Jason is still here and fighting. The damage to the brain is in the center of the brain, so any attempt to operate would do way more damage than good. Right now they are saying there is nothing they can do, but watch and pray. The doctors are somewhat pessimistic, but admit that they have seen people recover from severe brain injury. So for now we are taking each day of life as a day with Hope in Jesus Christ

According to Alaska State Troopers, Robert Stone, 44, and Jason Wichman, 31, were in a chase plane that went down in Rainy Pass on Sunday afternoon (February 17, 2013). Stone is an Anchorage attorney, and Wichman had plans to race this year but withdrew because of an injury last week.

​Kalei Rupp, spokeswoman with the Alaska Air National Guard, said the plane crashed shortly after 3 p.m. about a mile from the Rainy Pass Lodge.  The owner of the lodge, Steve Perrins, said the single-engine plane had taken off from the airport during windy conditions...."read entire article.
"Anchorage, AK — A well-known Anchorage attorney, as well as a racer who withdrew from the 2013 Iron Dog snowmachine race, were seriously injured Sunday after a support plane following the race crashed.
