PLEASE PRAY!!!!!!!!

My brother is in the hospital! He has been since Monday afternoon. He is in the ICU in critical condition. He got in an accident on an ATV (All Terrain Vehicle). The doctors and nurses have him stabilized, they have been keeping him sedated these four days. They had him on a paralytic at first and now he is off it... he is responding so soo well! He has been moving his right foot and right hand very well and his left is moving little bits here and there.

This morning my sister was asking him questions and and he was answering yes or no by wiggling his finger up and down or side to side!! He even waved all his fingers bye bye to my uncle!!! We are all overjoyed at this! He is in for an MRI now - so I snuck away to use the hospital's computer!

Please pray specifically for the swelling in his brain to go down, for the mid-brain damage they think he has, the facial fractures and for his eyes to repond better.

Also pray that Satan would have NO WORK in dividing my family through this tough time... thank you everyone - I love you all!

I had a few spare moments at work (my boss is on vacation) and thought I'd catch up on all your blog happenings. I am so sorry to hear about Matthew! I will add him to my nightly prayers. I know God works ALL things together for good! May he heal quickly so everyone will know how good and merciful God truly is!!
