Urgent prayer request- UPDATED

A very dear friend of mine in TX and her family were at their grandfathers funeral when a brick wall collapsed on their 7 year old son. He is now in ICU in critical condition. Please pray for their family. Things do not look very good for their sweet little boy at this time but I know I've witnessed huge miracles in the past and am praying for one for them right now.

Update 1/28- I just want to give a huge heartfelt thank you to all of you that have left comments or sent emails about prayers for our friends son. I have a very positive update on him as of last night he started moving around (very good sign!) and they are decreasing his sedatives. The extent of the brain injury is still unknown. Please continue to cover him and his family in your prayers!

Thank you for all your prayers. It's a really precious family. No it is not Ange's family. Sorry for any near heart attacks LeAnne.

Do you have an update? I have thought about this all day?

Angela said...

Thank you so much for your compassion and prayers for them. Last I heard was this morning and the doctors were saying that he was on life support and it would be about 30 hours or so before they may know anything. They were at that time considering cutting open his skull to relieve pressure on his brain. It's all really terrible. Please do keep praying for him and his family. If I hear anything more I'll be sure to share.

Angela,

Putting people with head injuries on life support is pretty common. It allows the doctors and nurses to really, really sedate the person without worrying whether they breathe. Sedating the brain is thought to keep down swelling.

Let us know how this little boy does as he is allowed to wake up ~ another person praying. This boy has cross country prayer coverage.
