URGENT PRAYER REQUEST

Prayer Request

(If you are squeamish, you may not want to read the following.)

Please be praying for my nephew. He is 32 years old and has a condition that causes heart and blood pressure problems, to include strokes. (Last year, he had open-heart surgery, due to a ruptured aorta.) He had an aneurysm earlier this year, which caused a stroke. A little over a week ago, he had a brain bleed. Things seemed okay, and he went home. Late last night he started exhibiting signs of a stroke – slurred speech, loss of function on his right side, etc.

He was rushed to the hospital, where doctors felt they could help with the brain swelling he was experiencing by drilling three holes in his skull to drain the blood. However, after two times, they realized it wasn’t working as expected and they needed to do more. Therefore, they removed a portion of his skull.  There are now multiple tubes in his head to continue the draining.

He is in ICU and is able to communicate some, which is FANTASTIC. However, he still has a long way to go.

Thank you to everyone. We greatly appreciate your kindnesses and prayers.
