I spoke with Kari's dad this morning. Keith is in a coma (I can only assume it's at least partially medically-induced) He is in critical condition in the Burn Unit ICU at HarborView.
Keith has sustained severe trauma to his head and face, a lacerated kidney, broken ribs. They operated on him for nearly four hours last night.
Apparently his car wrapped completely around a telephone pole, bending the car in half.
Please pray especially for Kari, she is obviously very worried and
exhausted. We love those guys, our hearts are just breaking for them.
I know they covet your prayers! Steve Lambert has posted the request on the Five in a Row Boards, and I'll put it up on the FCHM Boards this morning. You can see Steve's post here:
It's times like these that we are thankful to have such a wonderful network of prayer warriors.
Thanks again,

We are and have been praying for Keith, it seems the pray without ceasing comes easier when a friend is hurt and we lift the whole family up to our heavenly father who always answers.

Hello Everyone,
Well the Lord is sure answering prayers this morning. We received a call from Randy Jager regarding Keith's insurance which is much much better than the Cabales' knew! In fact, it's AWESOME! It's 50% up to $2500 and then 100% up to 2 million so this is a tremendous relief. Thanks, Randy for researching this for the family!
Last night the nurses asked Keith (who has been unresponsive for the most part) if he was in pain and he gave "two thumbs up"! Of course this means he is in pain but the good news is that he heard and can respond. Praise the Lord!
The Cabales family needs financial assistance with immediate things like rent, groceries and medical bills. They can really use the financial help.
You can send checks to First Baptist Church in Sedro-Woolley, please mark it "for the Cabales Family". The address to FBC is

511 State Street
Sedro-Woolley, WA 98284.

Jay called to confirm that this is indeed the place so you can feel confident sending money there. It will get to Keith and Kari.

Please note:
From now on I will ONLY be posting updates on the FCHM message boards. It will be a much more efficient way of communicating and give you a chance to write something to the family.
The link, one more time:
We are honored to know such a wonderful group of brothers and sisters in Christ. To see you caring for Keith and Kari like this has bolstered our own faith as we have received emails and calls from around the world for them. In the Lord, we are a family. Please continue to lift Keith up in prayer as well as their children and parents.
Blessings to you,
Heidi St. John
