Default Prayer request for Darkman's son

This is to let you know that Darkman found his 11 Year old son not breathing in their back yard in Pensacola last Saturday. He administered CPR and his son is in a coma in the hospital. Prognosis is poor.

Your prayers for his recovery are requested.
Thanks,
TJ

Dad said he was playing - swinging on a rope tied to a live oak limb and got tangled up.

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.

Buddy was playing with a swing he had built using a piece of a limb as a seat to the swing. The limb had broke and he apparently tied the two ends together and looped it under his arms and around his chest. He had climbed up on a wood rack and we believe he thought he could swing like Super man flus but when he came off the wood rack his weight of his lower body pulled him down and it tightened around his chest. The more he fought to get loose the more it tightened until he could not take a breath. This was a tragic accident and I found him within minutes of him loosing consciousness but we cannot be sure of the timeline entirely. I had seen him playing less than thirty minutes earlier. I thank God I found him in time to save him but we just do not know to what stage his brain was damaged. He looks like a perfect little boy resting in the hospital. The doctors gave him a paralytic since he was having total body muscle spasms which was interfering with the ventilator. Late tomorrow they will start weaning him off the meds and we will know more about his brain functions. Buddy needs your prayers. My wife and I need your prayers. Buddy is our grandson but we have raised him since he came home from the hospital after birth. This is the Monday morning report

Buddy rested peacefully through the night. The medication is giving him an opportunity to heal. It is all up to God at this point as he is the only one that can heal Buddy's brain. Everyone needs to pray for God's healing touch on Buddy.

The doctors will start weaning him off the medication late Tuesday to see how he will respond. We especially need your prayers then. The doctors do not have medicine that repairs the brain but God can. Let him hear your prayers. We do not know what God's will is but we can request that he heal Buddy and allow him to stay with us. God gave us Buddy to raise and we need to finish.

Please continue to pray hourly for God's healing powers.

Charles and Tami

Tuesday morning update

Buddy had a quite night which is good. They took him off the paralytic at 2:00am and his vitals have improved even more and he has not resumed the muscle twitches and jerking. We continue to talk to him and hold him as best we can with all the wires and tubes attached. We do not know if he can hear us but if he can we want him to know that we are here.

Later today we expect they will start reducing his other medications and try to wake him up. This can take days to weeks and the doctors say we should expect bad days and hopefully good days. They also may have to sedate him several times during this procedure depending on his responses.

They ran an EEG this morning to compare with yesterday's. From my observations the numerous line graphs were a little more active. We have not heard back from the neurologist.

We need excessive prayer for the next 48 hours. Let's keep Buddy name constantly in front of God.

Thank you for your prayers.

Charles and Tami

Tuesday night

Today has been rough. They took him off the paralytic and there was not any muscle twitching or jerking. They also took him off his sedatives. He has not shown any sign off waking up. A EEG they ran today shows there is brain damage of an unknown amount. This is devastating to me but I still maintain hope and continue to pray. God's will will be done.

Wednesday morning

Buddy has rested peacefully all night. All the medications that saturated his system will be metabolized by his liver today. There should not be anything stopping him from waking up at that point. That doctors have said that when he is ready he will if he can. We are just standing by praying over him, talking to him and giving our touch to reassure him we are there for him. He had a bit of infection in his lungs but that is clearing up with antibiotics. The road ahead is uncertain but with God at our side Tami, Buddy and I will take the journey with faith that God's will is in control. We cannot question it although our heart is broken. He has promised not to put more on us than we can bear even though it seems he has. Please continue with prayers.

Charles and Tami

I am so sorry for your earthly loss. Today my BIL is having a lung removed. He quit smoking over 30 years ago but has the same lung cancer his father had. I don't think the prognosis is good. My sweet sister will be so alone; they never had children. They helped raise my DS; he's a good man.

God does have a plan even though sometimes I wonder.
