    Attention All stations.

    I know that most of you like me watch the world news each day and hear about more American solders being wounded and killed each day and although we listen do we really know what these men and women and their familes are giving every day for our country and us.

    Well it all comes home when you learn that the oldest boy of one of your best and oldest friends is laying a Hospital in Germany near death.
    Christopher Montera the oldest son of Ray and April Montera was wounded yesterday In Afghanistan.

    I spoke with April this evening and she told me the Army was flying her to be with Chris she is leaving tonight and hopes to see him in the morning.
    She said that he is in critical condition and was on a special lung Machine to help his damaged lungs heal and that although he has severe burns and several broken bones he does have all of his limbs. At this time they are just trying to get him through the next few days.

    She has asked that we all say a special prayer for him as we pray for all of our solders.
    (remember the parents & families too)

    MAY GOD BLESS THEM AND BRING THEM HOME SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It is 11AM and we have just returned back to the hotel from the hospital where Chris continues to remain stable though critical. Doctor Bien who is treating him said that the next 4-5 days we will have to remain cautious...he was very candid on his condition which remains critical. His vital signs are stable and his lungs continue to require the assistance of the by pass machine though they were able to decrease the oxygen level which is encouraging. They also have a device to help with his kidney function to help with any toxins that may build up in his body. They are concerned with infection due to the severe burns he suffered on his arms and legs. His face though bruised is beautiful. We held his hands through the bandages and placed our hands over his heart to pray. Please continue to pray with us. Dr Bien said Chris is the 12th patient who has been brought in on the lung by-pass machine and the doctors in Afghanistan did a remarkable job getting him set up and transported. Right now, we have a two hour wait while they change his bandages and turned to lay on his stomach. This will help with circulation and respiration. It also allows ease in treating his lower leg wounds. We will be in Regensburg at the University Hospiital through his recovery to a condition in which he can be transported. We will keep you updated. Tomorrow I should have a telephone that works internationally. Until then, I will update you as I have access to my computer.

    Kyle and I are doing well. The Army has taken care of the details of transportation, hotel, and tomorrow a telephone for our use to call home with updates.

    We have hope.

    Love,
    April & Kyle

    God bless him, his family and all those that love him. God bless ALL those that have sacrificed their time, life and limb for this awesome country we live in. ALL those from the beginning of America be blessed by our Lord and hold them in His hands and protect and reward them for their loyalty and love of country, family and friends. God bless everyone and our great country. Amen
