I want to thank all of you , and especially you Terry Shepherd , for the prayers for this little boy. Nothing heals like the power of prayer and you have all proven that to me once again. When you are completely stripped of any control of a situation and utterly powerless to have an affect on the outcome the only thing left that you can do is pray. And when you are naked and bare and helpless and realize that there is nothing left that you can offer is when you need to accept the reality of your limitations and turn it over to God. You did that for this little boy and I thank you with every fiber of my being. I am humbled by your statements but I am not a hero. I believe anyone of you , including my eighty-five year old mother , would have reacted the same way. God just gave me the strength and took away the fear. I am no hero.
I went to see the child today , I just found out his name is Anthony , and there is no change. That is good news. They are going to try and do a skin graft to replace his scalp. His eye was actually not gone it had popped out of the socket and rolled up. They have made no promises about his vision but that is also good news.
I am not going to drag this out I haven’t been asleep in awhile. Flashes of the little boy with his arms stretched out kept sleep at bay. I encourage you to go to Macon.com and pull up the article that says pit bull owner arrested or charged or something like that. You will see a video of an old fat hippie with a pony tail standing in my kitchen. They tell me that is me but I don’t remember being that fat. In fact that dude seems to follow me around and get into all the family pictures too! My name is Eddie Deeb and I again want to say thank you so much for the prayers.
