Prayers for your step-Dad!

So sorry! Particularly it is difficult when you are a long distance apart.

well so far no change in condition.... the didnt even know who he was for 12 hrs.... the only way he was identified was the hospital found his cell phone and started callin ppl in it..... and his sister ansered and they asked her to identify him by tattoos.....they tried to remove him form coma last night but had to put him right back under..... he did squeeze the nurses hand this am... the details of the accident are very sketchy to ppl right now there are a few conflicting stories.... i am just so upset my son has been crying that he dont want his pappy to die.... thanks everyone it happened by morgantown wv around 12 am yesterday

07-29-2007, 09:29 PM
Sorry to hear that there has been no change. I feel very bad for your son. I wil pray for comfort for him. It is a good sign that he was able to squeeze the nurses hand. I will continue to pray for healing. Let us know when you hear anything.

07-30-2007, 05:17 PM
His squeezing the nurses hand is a good sign. I'm praying for him, E1. I have a cousin who suffered major brain trauma in a head on collision and he was in a coma for six weeks followed by much rehab - we all thought he might die and it was a very difficult time, but he made it through.

I know that at MWT both Kate and I have dealt with similar injuries in our families and that Tay is dealing with a family member with traumatic brain injury from a vehicle accident right now - so if you need some support or sharing or just good listeners, we're there for you.

:hug to your son - this has to be very frightening for him. I hope your stepdad continues to show some hopeful signs...his body may need the coma to recuperate for some time...

07-30-2007, 07:06 PM
So sorry. Will keep you and your family in my prayers

07-31-2007, 07:57 PM
ok update.... he is off the ventilator has 3 bleeds in his brain and 4 broken ribs.. needs major facial reconstruction.....neck isnot broken they removed his brace today...he is still in icu and in crital but stable condition all i know so far so keep the prayers coming guys thanks so much lots of love...... my son is doing a lil better but still very upset he has never dealt with anything like this before adn it is really still bugging him..

07-31-2007, 08:00 PM
Glad he is doing a little better. And he will get stronger day after day.

07-31-2007, 08:22 PM
hes a fighter so i know he will be ok it kills me thought that he is so far away in the hospital adn the family did nt put on me visitors list since he and my mom divorced... so i cant even go see him

08-05-2007, 08:26 AM
ok well just an update nothing has changed as of yesterday.... i am so depressed.....

08-05-2007, 09:33 AM
Is there anyway you could send a thinking of you card to his family and ask to be put on the list, or are there past hard feelings there? The fact that he is stable is a good sign, try not to get too down - these kind of accidents take a long time to recover from. Thank GOD his neck was not broken and hopefully they can staunch the bleeds.

I'm sure this is hard for you and your son. Writing your stepdad a letter and allowing your son to, as well as sending something to the hospital, I think would be good for both of you as well as your stepdad. :hugs I hope he continues to mend, prayers for his recovery!

08-05-2007, 12:35 PM
hope he is doing okay and makes it through all this.
Praying for your family to be okay through all this.

08-05-2007, 06:43 PM
