Please pray for my nephew


I just got the email from my sister. Her son (age 24) was just in a wreck that ripped the cab right off his pickup truck. He was care-flighted to Altoona Hospital where he is in intensive care in a drug-induced coma until they can operate on his broken back. He has sensation and movement in his arms but not in his legs.

Prayers very much appreciated.

I'm sorry to hear this. I will certainly keep him in my thoughts. I hope you and your family are okay.

Thanx, Alexandra. His surgery to fuse the broken bones in his back has been delayed until Tuesday due to concerns about blood pressure and clotting factors. The MRI is inconclusive. We won't know for a while what's the long term prognosis.
