Please Pray…

UPDATE 7/8…Tony got to come home from the hospital yesterday evening.  He has a broken neck and lots of cuts and bruises and will be wearing a neck brace for at least 6 weeks.  He is very confused and doesn’t remember anything from the past week.  His emotions are also running crazy BUT praise God he doesn’t have life threatening injuries.

Keith is still in ICU under heavy sedation.  There are lots of different reports going around but as of last night at 10:00, he DOES have brain activity and there is still swelling in the brain and brain stem.  There is no way to know the extent of his brain injury until he begins to come out of sedation.  They are putting in a feeding tube and trach(I don’t know how to spell that) and hopefully begin weaning him from the ventilator. 

God still answers prayer and still performs miracles so I ask that you continue to pray for this family.  I hope to have another update today.

 

Yesterday evening a very close friend of ours, Tony, was involved in a serious car accident.  He had his sister’s husband, Keith, with him and both were seriously injured.  Each were separately air lifted to E’ville…different hospitals due to each being a trauma.  We spent most of the night at the hospital with Tony and his wife Christy (who’s dad just died last Sunday and was burried on Wed.).  Tony has 2 fractures in his neck and several cuts but seems to be ok other that that…not to say that is ok.  He was resting when we left.  Keith seems to be in more serious condition.  Pray for this precious family…pray, pray and then pray some more.  I will update as I get more information.
