Its a GREAT DAY brothers and sisters!

I'm going to put this all out there, for me and for people who may be struggling. Its long, its from my heart, but it may be hard to read.
I'll refer to my daughter as she throughout..

My daughter is smart, funny, and a sheer delight to anyone who meets her; but she carries a weight and darkness. She has been going to therapy for years and is on meds. Her mother is an amazing stay at home mom, and I feel confident in saying that I am a loving and available dad. We spend a lot of time together and enjoy life together. Despite this, the darkness inside can overwhelm her.

For the last year, I've seen her really buy into getting better. Her response to life and adversity started to change for the better. Hardships could be learned from an even laughed at in a healthy way. She went to more than weekly therapy and willingly took her newly prescribed meds daily. Things were looking amazing.

On Tuesday, my wife arrived at school to pick her up. Sometimes she stays late to finish work and has her phone off, so 30 mins later it wasn't a red flag she hadn't come out. 60 mins later, the school had been checked an APB for missing person was filed. Her phone was still off, and that never happens. Immediately friends and their parents were called, a text chain started, fb posts made. It was now 4p, 3 hours late for pick up. The cops last had a cell tower ping from the day before, so no help there.

Friends searched our little downtown. I walked the school grounds with her assistant principal. My wife worked to go through social media history, which we allow minimal of. Finally, by 6pm, we were able to piece together a story and location where she was last seen. By this boys account, my daughter was frantic. He dropped her off by another friends house, which is on a pretty creek in a very steep and wooded area.

The cops refused to send out search and rescue for safety of their team given the darkness, cold temps (30s), and steep, brambly, rocky terrain. So 6 of us put on headlamps and fanned out methodically searching for 2 hours.

At 9p, my wife thought of another place to check. We went there, searched again, no luck. We went to grocery stores, parks, restaurants.. no luck. It is 10p, 9 hours late, cell phone off. We were tired, covered in poison oak and blackerry bush scrapes, out of ideas, sad, scared, tired, cold, hungry.. but not able to give up. We stopped at a bridge over this creek, our friends still out searching but on a bikeway/greenway. The bridge is over a steep ravine with an abrupt 40-50ft drop. We slid down the hill, my wife went right, I went left.

I stood still for a moment and listened. I heard the sound of a dolphin or manatee coming up for air (i was exhausted), and ignored it for a half second. Then I whipped my heard toward it. 15ft further down slope in the creek was my daughter, fully dressed, floating face up, in 2ft of water on the bank of the creek. I was on a 10ft boulder surrounded by blackberry below me. I didn't know what to do, so i jumped. Thank God I didn't break an ankle, but I needed to get there as I'm yelling frantically for my wife to call 911. I jump in the creek, the water probably 48-55 degrees, check her for injuries that would imply trauma or need to hold her in stable c-spine position, and then pull her out of the water. 911 is on speaker. We are ripping her wet clothes off and stipping down to give my daughter our dry clothes. 911, please hurry, just get here.
That wait for fire and ambulance may have been 4 mins or 20mins, it was a lifetime. My daughter's eyes are open and she is looking around, but she is not there. She is mumbling incoherently, foaming spit at the mouth, she has irregular but effective breathing, her skin is ice.

I hear the sirens, I climb the hill, flag down the ambulance, give them a 10 sec recap. We slide back down slope, load her onto a carrying tarp, and I grab a handle as the 3 firefighters and I carry her upslope.

More first respoders show up, she's placed on a board, and then loaded into the rig. I finally break and wail and shake. That image of my daughters white skin reflecting in the dark of the water, lifeless, but not..

My friends have showed up. They clothe me and push me into a car. My wife is in the ambulance with my daughter. In the ER she is intubated and placed on a breathing machine. She has a weak pulse, they cannot get a blood pressure, her core temp is 85 degrees, and that's after some warming. 85F.
She is CT scanned from head to pelvis, tubes and lines in, labs sent. This is a rural hospital, I am an ICU RN, and I know we are in too deep for their ability. Politely, an within 20 mins, I've asked to please request transfer to Ped ICU anywhere in Sacramento. They oblige, and it happens within an hour. UC Davis is an amazing hospital and she is transferred rhe hour ride without incident.

Over the first night, I watched her do things on a ventilator I have never seen hitting resp rate of 120 breaths per minute (12 years experience). Her pupils are expanding and constricting constantly with light shown in her eyes. She has a neuro finding called clonus. Her temp is still in the low 90-92 degrees as they try to warm her. Her heart and bp have stabilized but the signs point to severe hypoxic (no oxygen) brain injury, possibly involving the brainstem.

We pray. I ask for prayers. The staff does amazing things. Everyone is trying. The MDs are reserved in their prognosis with the very real and clinically indicated severe brain injury
We get to yest evening, 24 hours after she was found, and the resident does a neuro exam. The resident is meek and I asked if I could try.

I step in put knuckles into my daughter's sternum and push hard. I need to know what she does. Immediately, her eyes flung open and she reached with both hands to stop me. That is exactly the response I had prayed for! You don't do that with severe hypoxic brain injury.

She had some hits overnight as she not surprisingly developed a pneumonia. But this morning, my sweet girl, my life, my everything looked me in the eye. She is there. She is alive in body and mind. She is still intubated on the ventilator, but will likely be taken off today. She is nodding her head. She does not maintain eye contact for long, but she is there.

I don't know what type of damage she will sustain long term, but right now I don't care. We found our daughter in a creek 8 miles from my house, she still had life, she was rescued, she was prayed for, and she is here.

I cannot thank God or all of you enough. She is an amazing human being struggling to overcome her inner darkness.. and she will. But even as I weep recounting this story, both from fear/sadness and joy, I cannot believe that we are here. I cannot believe all the things that had to come together for this child to have another chance.

I was overwhelmed when i put my head down last night and saw all the prayers and love you all posted. I believe the prayers made a difference. I know your quick posts meant the world to me as I read through the first half last night giving a tu to each before I finally crashed into sleep. I will finish the rest.

Thank you God, thank you Tiger Family. I simply don't have the words to covey my overwhelming sense of gratitude.
Peace and love to you all.

God bless you and your family. Just over a year ago we thought we had lost our then 12 YO daughter and it was the worst day of my life, but in the end the greatest because she survived and has since grown into a healthy and happy 14 YO. I can't imagine the fear and pain you felt as you searched for your daughter. I pray that God gives you all peace and strength followed by a full recovery. Thank you for sharing the personal and difficult details of what happened, I pray that it helps others deal with situations they are experiencing.

I cry as I read this this shear desperation, fear and enormous love. We are all imperfect and this baby of yours has an amazing suport system. I pray that this is her point of realizing the things in her life that she can change. I pray that with Gods healing touch she recovers from this from near tragedy. You and your wife hold that baby tight. She knows your love for her and hopefully she will, with time, find her place where she fits in this crazy world. Blessings to you. Stay strong, I know it’s hard, but that lands on someone. If me or my family can ever help you, please just let us know.
Love from a Tiger

We slid down the hill, my wife went right, I went left.

I stood still for a moment and listened. I heard the sound of a dolphin or manatee coming up for air (i was exhausted), and ignored it for a half second. Then I whipped my heard toward it. 15ft further down slope in the creek was my daughter, fully dressed, floating face up, in 2ft of water on the bank of the creek. I was on a 10ft boulder surrounded by blackberry below me. I didn't know what to do, so i jumped. Thank God I didn't break an ankle, but I needed to get there as I'm yelling frantically for my wife to call 911. I jump in the creek, the water probably 48-55 degrees, check her for injuries that would imply trauma or need to hold her in stable c-spine position, and then pull her out of the water. 911 is on speaker. We are ripping her wet clothes off and stipping down to give my daughter our dry clothes. 911, please hurry, just get here.
That wait for fire and ambulance may have been 4 mins or 20mins, it was a lifetime. My daughter's eyes are open and she is looking around, but she is not there. She is mumbling incoherently, foaming spit at the mouth, she has irregular but effective breathing, her skin is ice.

I hear the sirens, I climb the hill, flag down the ambulance, give them a 10 sec recap. We slide back down slope, load her onto a carrying tarp, and I grab a handle as the 3 firefighters and I carry her upslope.

More first respoders show up, she's placed on a board, and then loaded into the rig. I finally break and wail and shake. That image of my daughters white skin reflecting in the dark of the water, lifeless, but not..

My friends have showed up. They clothe me and push me into a car. My wife is in the ambulance with my daughter. In the ER she is intubated and placed on a breathing machine. She has a weak pulse, they cannot get a blood pressure, her core temp is 85 degrees, and that's after some warming. 85F.
She is CT scanned from head to pelvis, tubes and lines in, labs sent. This is a rural hospital, I am an ICU RN, and I know we are in too deep for their ability. Politely, an within 20 mins, I've asked to please request transfer to Ped ICU anywhere in Sacramento. They oblige, and it happens within an hour. UC Davis is an amazing hospital and she is transferred rhe hour ride without incident.

Over the first night, I watched her do things on a ventilator I have never seen hitting resp rate of 120 breaths per minute (12 years experience). Her pupils are expanding and constricting constantly with light shown in her eyes. She has a neuro finding called clonus. Her temp is still in the low 90-92 degrees as they try to warm her. Her heart and bp have stabilized but the signs point to severe hypoxic (no oxygen) brain injury, possibly involving the brainstem.

We pray. I ask for prayers. The staff does amazing things. Everyone is trying. The MDs are reserved in their prognosis with the very real and clinically indicated severe brain injury
We get to yest evening, 24 hours after she was found, and the resident does a neuro exam. The resident is meek and I asked if I could try.

I step in put knuckles into my daughter's sternum and push hard. I need to know what she does. Immediately, her eyes flung open and she reached with both hands to stop me. That is exactly the response I had prayed for! You don't do that with severe hypoxic brain injury.

She had some hits overnight as she not surprisingly developed a pneumonia. But this morning, my sweet girl, my life, my everything looked me in the eye. She is there. She is alive in body and mind. She is still intubated on the ventilator, but will likely be taken off today. She is nodding her head. She does not maintain eye contact for long, but she is there.

I don't know what type of damage she will sustain long term, but right now I don't care. We found our daughter in a creek 8 miles from my house, she still had life, she was rescued, she was prayed for, and she is here.

I cannot thank God or all of you enough. She is an amazing human being struggling to overcome her inner darkness.. and she will. But even as I weep recounting this story, both from fear/sadness and joy, I cannot believe that we are here. I cannot believe all the things that had to come together for this child to have another chance.

I was overwhelmed when i put my head down last night and saw all the prayers and love you all posted. I believe the prayers made a difference. I know your quick posts meant the world to me as I read through the first half last night giving a tu to each before I finally crashed into sleep. I will finish the rest.

Thank you God, thank you Tiger Family. I simply don't have the words to covey my overwhelming sense of gratitude.
Peace and love to you all.


Not gonna lie. I am in tears at my desk. When I saw your post yesterday it broke my heart and I immediately prayed for her recovery and for you. I don’t know you but you have been on my mind all day and I am so happy to hear the update. Stay strong and continued prayers


Glad she is improving!***

So fantastic to hear this precious young girl was found and is recovering!

I'm not one to be overtaken easily by emotions. I've lost too many family & friends & almost lost my son 15 years ago, which does tend to steel you - maybe too much.

But, I couldn't help welling with tears of joy when reading this account of prayers answered. God listens to fervent prayers from the heart.

What a magnificent story of His love and grace! Let's all KEEP praying for this miraculous 16-year-old angel and her wonderful family. Pray for strength for them all and total recovery.

Give thanks for a remarkable Clemson family of prayer warriors!

everyone that took part in searching for your daughter and everyone that said a prayer. As the father of a wonderful daughter I can't even imagine what you went through looking for her and then saving her once you found her. I pray that God will continue to heal her as well as restoring the energy and strength for all involved. Although it is a trying situation your story is a great testament to faith and family. Please keep us updated as your daughter continues to heal.

reading this at work. Reading it touched me and made me appreciate God and His work even more and the blessing He gave me and my ex in our son! I shared this amazing story with her. Good things do happen to GOOD people. Continued prayers for you, your daughter and wife.
